I grew up in Slidell, Louisiana and moved to Naples Florida about 25 years ago. When I go back to Slidell with my wife the first place we stop at is Phil's Marina Café . They have the best shrimp po-boys and the best boiled shrimp in a nice waterfront atmosphere. Throw in a great cold beer and the casual... More

I have great memories of my trips here with friends and co-workers. It is a locally owned and operated restaurant that serves excellent fresh foods. Their seafood plates are very good and a favorite of mine.

I live near this restaurant. It has good fried seafood and a few specialty dishes. I like to sit on the patio overlooking the water. Great prices for good Louisiana seafood dishes.

Great seafood and pretty view of Lake Pontchartrain and marina. Service very good, and back area for parties or large groups.

I had a surprise 40th birthday party for my wife their. They put 40 of us in the back area and provided us unbelievable service all evening. The food is always fresh and priced just right every time we go there. The Mahi Mahi fish Tacos are out of this world. The bread pudding is homemade and with a variety... More

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and the reviews were correct. We had an excellent meal. We had the corn and crayfish chowder, grilled shrimp bun and salad with grilled shrimp. Every item was very tasty. Would definitely recommend.

This was the best restaurant experience I've had in I don't know when. Phil's came highly recommended to us by some local residents so we had to try it. We were immediately seated by a very friendly staff. Our waitress Erika made us feel right at home. She answered all of our questions which were many. She gave us great... More

Always enjoyable, and especially so when raw oysters are in season. If you have not tried the bowtie pasta and crab dip, you are missing out! Cold draft beer and boiled crab or crawfish go great together. And a very nice view of the Marina. We always try to take our family to this restaurant when they visit. Tuna cooked... More

Overlooks the marina with comfortable but basic waterside decor. Very good seafood with Italian influence. Tried soft shell Duddy with soft shell crab, artichoke hearts and mushrooms over pasta-very well done. Also tried chicken fettuccini which was also good. The beer on tap was the coldest I have ever had. Excellent meal
