Love the crab cakes

Best crab cakes I ever had. A meal can feed 2 people. Large portions and seasoned melas everyone will love.

Phil's is not a fancy restaurant nor is the food fancy. But it is the best place to go in Slidell for fried seafood and onion rings. The best deal is the fried shrimp special. The servings are large, and the quality good. A light breading makes the seafood almost as good as proper tempura. They also have a series... More

The service is slow, 10-15 minutes get our water after being seated then another 15 to place our order. Shimp Maria was good with plenty of butterflied shrimp but it and spaghetti was floating in butter. Wife had the Mahi Mahi with crab stuffing. The Mahi was over cooked, dry and leathery on the surface, the stuffing tested good but... More

We had a wonderful dinner. Crawfish could have been a little spicier, but all and all it was a great meal.

I come to Slidell twice a year to visit family and this is our favorite place. Was there again April 24. Food is the attraction as the service only average. The Mahi mahi was excellent and the shrimp platter is quite the bargain. The oysters on the half shell were the best I have had in years. Outdoor dining is... More

Waited about 90 minutes for our food, but I believe some of the wait was our waitress, not the kitchen. Food was tasty, maybe a little high priced, but satisfied overall.

I was in New Orleans on business and stayed in Slidell. We asked for a good seafood place and were sent to Phil's. It was so good that we went back again the next night. If you order a platter, better have your big boy pants on, it's a LOT of great food.

Came here after a Saints game and it was worth it! The food was fresh, decent priced, and had a good selection. The wait staff was very accommodating to our variety of needs and made great suggestions. Seems like a good local haunt.

Food is pretty average. There are a few items on the menu that are to die for, but the poboy bread is hard as a rock. Service is good.

We came here on a whim like most of our locations visited during our trip to New Orleans. From the moment we steeped in the cafe we knew our experience would be awesome. We were grated with smiles from the welcoming staff and our baby boy took to our waitress immediately. The southern charm around there was amazing. We ordered... More
