Rated the #1 Restaurant in Slidell leaves me wondering how it made it. Must be fore the outdoor dining and view of the bayou. The waitress warned us that there were too many flies to sit outdoors. The place was not busy for a Wednesday evening at 5:30 so we were seated immediately and the wait staff was attentive and... More

Had dinner there on a Friday and lunch on a Sunday, were on our boat so took advantage of the fact that you can tie up at their dock on Bayou Bonfouca. Drinks and service were good to excellent, and food was very good. Basic grilled chicken and rice pilaf was excellent, pasta dishes and grilled fish were all very... More

I've been to Palmettos not only for a gathering with friends for supper, but also for a business Christmas party. Both visits provided a place to relax, visit and eat excellent food. Be sure and try the crab cakes. They are my favorite. You have a choice of eating indoors or sitting on the large covered patio in the back... More

My husband and I were just killing time while our kids spent sometime at the Slidell Rocks rock wall. We tried to go antiquing, but very few shops were open. We noticed the packed parking lot at Palmetto's and decided we should give it a shot. Eddie, the bartender, took great care of us. There was a nice duo playing... More

My wife and I went here for the first time and will without a doubt go back. The atmosphere was and the staff even better. Our server, Kiara and Chef Daniel were outstanding. We very highly recommend this wonderful paradise on the bayou.

Palmetto's is a lovely charming restaurant. It has a great atmosphere and great food. The Trout Almondine is wonderful! No other place in Slidell can beat it. It also makes for an awesome place to throw a wedding or party!

Only been here once and it was for a bridal shower. Food was delicious, inside and outside were beautiful. I can't say much about the service just because it was a party so a lot going on. From what I can tell it was good. Everyone always had full glasses of drink.

This restaurant is a real treasure for its location on the bayou and meal offerings in a relaxed atmosphere. The staff are friendly, well informed, and accommodating. The bayou setting is superb and I highly recommend taking the short walk out to view the water from the boat dock either before or after dinner. There is also live jazz some... More
