We went with family to celebrate my mother's 97th Birthday! Our waitress Erica was super in every way. The food was so delicious and we got such generous potions. My crabmeat au gratin so tasty and the fried shrimp was shrimp with a few French fries not fries with a few shrimp! Totally delicious, too! I will certainly visit here... More

I have been at this restaurant in many occasions. Its location is very inviting to a sunset dinner experience in a casual(shorts&sandals) atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and casual as well. The menu has a good Louisiana representation and the food is very tasty but not heart healthy,fried and rich. Great place for a Sunday afternoon!

We had a party of 8 that meets every other month or so. Slidell is the "in between" location of our homes. This time I choose Phil's due to the reviews and the seafood that 7 of us enjoy. It so happens i am the one that does not eat seafood. So the review will be about my order. The... More

We are regulars since this is close to home.The shrimp special is the best bargain and it is always good. Service varies depending on who you get but we are rarely in a hurry so it really doesn't matter.

Took my mother here for Mother's Day.. Upon making the reservation I was told they could not accommodate a party of eight outdoors because they didn't have the space to accommodate a party of that size outdoors.. Upon my arrival I realized I was very much deceived as there were large tables set up to accommodate the larger parties.. Also... More

Our food was okay. A couple of us ended up being a little sick afterwards. And the server wasn't very attentive at all. Kept having to ask the host for things. For what we paid, I would've expected it to be better.

The restaurant was much more informal than I expected from the reviews. We were the exception to a lively crowd in college sweatshirts and jeans. It is known as a LSU Tigers den. The locals took us in. I had red snapper and my husband had crawfish gumbo, both outstanding. His bread pudding dessert was very good. My key lime... More

This is a local gathering place and one look at the regulars at the bar you know it. The seafood is fresh, the beer is cold and the staff is friendly. If you are looking for the above and don't need cloth table covers and napkins but just want good food and decent prices go here. They have specials. Last... More
