About the restaurant
The Red Maple was originally owned and operated by the Trauth Family, a German-American family of restaurateurs spanning 100 years in Gretna. And what began in 1963 continues to this day, holding to its German roots through its rustic Alpine lodge decor, extensive beer selection and annual Oktoberfest celebration. In fact, it was a red maple tree in the side yard that inspired the name of the bar – The Red Maple – with the restaurant being added in 1965.

Now for over 50 years, The Red Maple has been the rendezvous spot for West Bank movers and shakers known for its Prime cut steaks, New Orleans favorites and fresh Louisiana seafood.

Today, under the passionate guidance of Proprietor Brent Trauth and his sister, Carroll Gales, The Red Maple continues to deliver on its reputation for delicious food, exceptional service and rich Louisiana history. A rich and storied past that is only upstaged by the dining experience itself.

One of my favorite local restaurants. Especially love their Veal Oscar and classic Red Maple Bread Pudding. Took Dad for a late Father's Day dinner and he (& Mom) loved the Redfish Pontchartrain with the jumbo lump crabmeat. Happened to be Steak Night so I had the 8oz Filet - perfectly cooked/well-seasoned and came with a salad and mashed potatoes at a great price. Had a great old fashioned from their cozy bar. Service is always top notch. It's a perfect place to spend time with good food and good friends!

Really expensive. Loved the experience but can't afford to do it on a regular basis with my daughters like I'd want to.

About the restaurant

Bayou des Familles, a lazy waterway home to many alligators, turtles, egrets and other wildlife, takes center stage as our restaurant’s design provides its diners with a natural picture show. It’s in this unique setting where friends and family unite to experience southern Louisiana charm and culture in its finest form. It’s an experience not to be soon forgotten.

The 15-mile drive from downtown New Orleans will take you through the Jean Lafitte National Park. You’ll arrive at Restaurant des Familles and park under moss-filled century-old oak trees. The restaurant’s Acadian-style architecture provides a glimpse of bayou life that once was.

Our menu features authentic representations of Cajun and Creole favorites such as Crawfish Etouffée, Seafood & Okra Gumbo, Seafood Platters and Turtle Soup. Our signature dish, Alligator Stuffed Mushrooms with Alligator Sauce Piquant, will tempt even the most timid diner.

We look forward to your visit.

We had a party of 6 celebrating my brother's birthday. The service and food were excellent, plus we had a great view of the bayou. We had a wonderful time. I can't wait to go back.

I have found my new favorite steakhouse! This was absolutely THE BEST steak I’ve EVER had! Both my husband and I got the filet with au poivre sauce & it was cooked to perfection! Nice crispy exterior and perfect medium pink center. Our sides included the vegetable medley and the twice baked potato with crawfish. My husband said it was delicious. (I wasn’t eating carbs so passed). We were also served a delicious little amuse bouche, a meatball in red sauce along with a lovely basket of super garlicky French bread which hubby devoured. The food was all top notch, just amazing… and the service totally matched that! We had a wonderful wait staff..Tanguis & Brittany both of whom were amazingly helpful, friendly, and very accommodating to my dietary needs. Our dining experience celebrating my BD was especially pleasant with Tanguis’ exceptional service and fun conversation!
