Casual Good Eating

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... read 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

We ate here recently while staying overnight in Slidell. The restaurant sits right on the water and our table had a great view which we enjoyed. The food was good although I was disappointed as there were no crab cakes available that evening but the shrimp was good. Our waitress was professional and friendly.

The boiled shrimp are very good WHEN they have them. Bread pudding is a different flavor each day and is awesome. It's nice to sit outside, but can really be sunny and hot. The wait staff is either hit or miss.

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.
