Good food, good service

We tried Vera's after another place was closing as we arrived. Vera's is in a small strip mall, and looks like a typical small town family restaurant. The food was good - we both had trout - and the service was fine. There may be some better places in town, but Vera's was not bad.

Nothing short of fantastic. We happened across this place a few minutes before their closing time, on my family's road trip home. It was one of the best meals we ate all week! The fried shrimp are exceptional.

This is a small, local place in Slidell. The staff was friendly, the restaurant was clean, but most importantly for me -- it was gluten-free friendly. We had some of the best seafood in Louisiana at this restaurant.

I great restaurant. It has wonderful food, very good service and a fun environment. They are famous for their gumbo, but everything we ordered was delicious.

Gumbo, crabmeat au gratin, huge fried shrimp, stuffed flounder, you name it! Notorious for their HUGE jumbo fried shrimp. Dena's gumbo and au gratin is the best in the nation!- world!! Wish it were back on the lake pontchartrain, but maybe one day?

My son was in from NC with his family and wanted some seafood. We called ahead and they were able to fit 13 of us in. The variety was nice, everyone ordered something different. The food arrived just as ordered, it was hot and fresh. The wait staff was friendly and the drinks were always full. The serving size was... More

I have somehow missed this restaurant in all the times that I've eaten in Slidell. I am so excited that I stumbled upon it. Being from South Mississippi I am very picky about seafood. I have the lobster special and I have to say that it was the best lobster I've ever had. It was cooked in seasoning and came... More

Service was poor, food was undercooked. This used to be a great place pre-Katrina. Since then, rested on laurels and quality has been poor.

and we had some good meals, so that is saying something. Actually, we came here by accident, and am I glad we did! There was so much road construction in the area that getting to our hotel became a project. By the time we checked in, we were in no mood to fight it any longer. The hotel manager recommended...

We were the last customers of the night and Amber treated us very well. Just passing thru, the hotel receptionist recommended Vera's to us. The gumbo is off the charts good and the catfish was the best we've ever had. Highly recommend it.
