We took our son to New Orleans to pick up a car and ended up in Slidell. We looked on our Trip Advisor app and saw that Palmettos on the Bayou was highly recommended. The recommendation was accurate.

The food and overall atmosphere was amazing! Highly recommended. We went for brunch and everyone loved their dishes. Great service and an amazing location on the Bayou. They even had a cool dock

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Slidell. It has a beautiful setting, delicious food, fantastic service and a great atmosphere. All of which make for a wonderful evening out. They also offer a Sunday Brunch that we love.

Fabulous food, service is beyond compare. The filet mignon is the best I've ever had. I only get to this part of the country a few times a year, but this is always on my list of places to eat. Don't miss it.

This was the first time I have had Oysters Vincent and was enchanted. As this is the only time i have tried them, I am not an expert. However, it is difficult for me to believe they could be any better anywhere. We sat on the patio which had a wonderful view and received wonderful service from our server Eric.
