We caught the sunset over the marina bay and enjoyed a nice seafood dinner. Gumbo was good, side salad small, seafood tasty and service excellent. Prices are moderate.

View was nice and server nice. Catfish was a little salty but was ok. Shrimp platter was good value. They were out of meatballs , so did not get to try that.

Boiled seafood. You can dine on the patio but it is enclosed with a clear plastic now. Inside has awesome window views of Lake Ponchartrain also!... More

Recently had the opportunity to enjoy 2 nights of dining at Phil’s Marina Café. The atmosphere of the restaurant is basic dock side, but the fresh fish menu was excellent! We found the oysters on the 1/2 shell great, the steamed fresh shrimp were outstanding (be sure and order plenty). The entrees of Drum and Grouper were delicately prepared and... More
