Amazing Roadside Find

We stopped on our way out of NOLA headed to Perdido Key, Florida for lunch based on Trip Advisor rating. We were really disappointed: we ordered two fried shrimp specials, a chicken club, and a burger for our 6 year old because the kids menu didn't have one on it. All the fried food was just overcooked, dry and too... More

We ate here because of reviews off tripadvisor. The food was amazing, we enjoyed all of it. We however almost got up and left because we sat for 15 mins before a waitress come to take a drink order. she was very prompt after that. I got the 24 shrimp and loved it, my daughter got crab cakes and said... More

We gather their occasionally with friends and family to partake of some great seafood dishes while enjoying the view of Lake Ponchatrain. If you go, try the special of 24 fresh fried shrimp with fries. I'll bet you'll be bringing some home in a doggy bag.

This is not a fancy place (though sitting outside when the weather is nice gives you a great ambience looking out over the water and the boats). Your fellow diners are salt-of-the-earth average Americans. The prices are very reasonable and I seem to spend only a bit over half of what I spend in say Young's steakhouse, also in Slidell....

We recently went on vacation to Gulf Shores, I know what you are thinking, Phil's is in Slidell, but this was one of the best place we ate on our entire vacation. The lunch menu has a great variety items and they make one of the best gumbos. I had the roast beef poboy and it was messy and scrumptious.... More

We hit Phil's on a Sunday evening, and had a great server. He was on top of things, engaging, and very helpful. We sat on the deck, which had clear plastic tarps serving as windows, so we could see the marina, but not be bothered by the wind coming off the water. Our food was very good, and served fairly...

I recently visited Slidell with my wife for fishing. We had a group of 5 on the way out of town around 3pm and stopped for early dinner. The place was nearly empty due to the time, so we walked right in. Service was rapid and friendly. Atmosphere is casual. This place is a little off the beaten path, but... More

A group of us visited Phil's for a Father's Day gathering. Our reservation was ready upon arrival, our server was upbeat and accommodating, the food was (as usual) exceptional and the bill was reasonable. What more could you ask for? My seafood platter was loaded with fresh shrimp, fish and oysters. With mac and cheese and side salad, a meal... More
