I spent a night in Grand Isle and wanted to take advantage of the seafood. The motel owner recommended the Starfish over the Lighthouse. I tried the seafood platter and the only thing I could say was okay was the shrimp. I would get a...More

Great food and service. You'll even get a discount for paying with cash. Gumbo was great. Crab cakes needed more crab for our liking. Boudin burritos were yummy!
