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

This is a beautiful place on the bayou, great for outdoor dining if they aren't having a private event on their back deck. The food is very good, not always the fastest place to get in and out of, especially if you have a group but still very good. I would definitely recommend it.

Traveling back from vacation in New Orleans we found this treasure on Trip Advisor. What a great example of Southern hospitality combined with great Southern cuisine. The location was amazing. We dined outside on the bayou. A great setting among the cypress trees and Spanish moss---the temperature was perfect and everything about out outside dining experience was great. We had... More

We came here on a whim. I ordered the special drink of the day: pineapple upside down cake martini, which was excellent. I ordered the nightly special of soft-shell crab, which was delicious. I was only able to eat part of it, since it was so large. We had also had a sampling of other seafood dishes, which I found... More

Ate lunch at this small town jewel. Great atmosphere and the food was outstanding. One of the best meals we have had and we have been to many 4 star restaurants on this trip including all the great ones in Charleston SC. It's on the way to New Orleans. Make reservations if going after 5PM

My husband and I love to try new restaurants and new dishes when in a new area. We stopped at Palmettos on the Bayou today for lunch after finding it on Trip Advisor. The atmosphere was very nice with a sax player by the main door. The brunch buffet looked great. We opted to order from their menu. I ordered... More

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
