Atmosphere is wonderful as the restaurant is located right on the bayou. Super local dishes are prepared daily. Stop by and be treated to a great meal.

This quaint restaurant is located on Bayou Bonfouca in Slidell, LA. It is situated in an old bayou home, now completely renovated. It has a lovely dining room, but, weather permitting, I choose to sit on the spacious deck overlooking the lovely bayou. Most great restaurants are "chef driven" and this is a prime example. Chef Daniel Bourgault, a local... More

We had a family lunch here and it was a beautiful experience--the restaurant is picturesque and the views were amazing. We had a large party of 10 adults and 3 children and the service was first rate. We enjoyed the local dishes including trout ponchartrain, bayou catfish and poboys--the seafood tasted so fresh! Its location can't be beat- its right... More

We were guests of a wedding here, and had high expectations that our friends had selected the perfect venue for their many fussy & demanding guests. Well, glad to report that they scored a bulls-eye! The setting was amazing. Rustic, natural, beautifully appointed amongst the bayou & the many cypress trees. Lots of room both indoors & outdoors. The atmosphere... More

My daughter had her wedding at Palmettos recently. It was amazing! She had a ceremony under the enormous oak tree with Spanish moss and the reception was inside and outdoor patios. The patio areas were very romantic in the evening with a rustic iron chandelier, torch lights, candle lights, and lots of mini clear lights on the ceiling. If you... More

We had lunch here on a trip to Florida and noticed their billboard when we exited Interstate 12. What a surprise when we entered their parking lot. We ate on the deck in their garden and enjoyed the food and relaxation. The service was very good.

We ate at Palmettos for a rehearsal dinner prior to our nephews wedding. The location was lovely, the decor was warm and inviting and the food was delicious! I had a shrimp/linguine dish that was excellent and my husband had the trout which he says was the best he has ever had. We would definitely recommend Palmettos for dinner or... More

Maybe it's because we ate toward the end of the brunch time, and because they were getting ready for a wedding, but I would have expected much better from the restaurant rated #1 on here. Food was not hot, nothing stood out, chef not on station to cook the omelets, took a long time to get our checks. Atmosphere was... More
