We were looking for good shrimp po-boys and a friend recommended Vera's .. So we gave it a try and loved it. The shrimp were freshly cooked and hot , the bread was good. We will be back to try some other things on the menu!

This is the best seafood restaurant on the Northshore!! The seafood platters are always fried when you place your order, never ahead of time. Love the oysters on the half shell and other boiled seafood. Their gumbo is delicious and great Poboys are always available. Cold mugs of beer go perfectly with our seafood. I have never been disappointed at... More

A very good seafood restaurant located near the mall. The fried seafood was good and fresh. Vera's was located on Lake Ponchatrian before Katrina hit. Prices are reasonable.

We stopped here after a Mardi Gras parade in Slidell and were not let down. The stuffed crabs were huge and amongst the best we've had. The po boy was also gigantic (almost too large to eat). Driving by at night the place looked so dark from outside; don't be fooled - the restaurant is large and well lit. The... More

We have enjoyed this restaurant over the years, but our visit this year left us wanting. What happened to the quality of the food? Service was adequate, but the food was a disappointment. The soft shell crab platter which my wife and I both had was small, over-breaded and greasy. The portion was smaller than before, but the price did... More

The food and service are consistently good at Vera's. Highlights include the tasty and flavorful homemade soup, salad dressings, and potato salad. My family likes having the option of having our seafood grilled, blackened or fried (grilled shrimp and fried catfish are our favorites). I agree with the other reviewers that the new location (a strip mall), thanks to Katrina,... More

I too miss Vera's on the lake :-( . This was my first visit since before Katrina, and I ordered a take-out meal the night I passed through Slidell. Gumbo was a 7 on my scale (my grandmothers' gumbos being both 10s), which is high praise from me. Seafood platter was good, with the fried catfish and oysters being the... More

The place isn't the same anymore without the view, and the prices only disappoint you more without Lake Pontchatrain in your face. Katrina stole that from us. But the food is good, not as good, but still really good.

Stopped in Slidell on our way to Destin. The hotel recommended Vera's. It was a good choice. Nothing fancy, just good seafood. I had fried shrimp (very good!). He had fish(also good). Service was okay.

Excellent meal, not overly crowded, and good prices. We had gumbo, alligator sausage, soft shelled crab, and everything was excellent!
