Good fried seafood and pleasant location.

Four of us went for lunch. We were all very pleased with our meals: big fat soft shell crab with salad and veggies, crab cakes that were real crab without all the filler, 24 (good size) fried shrimp, cup of gumbo (shrimp & okra) and fried catfish poor boy ( nice big filets of catfish). Everything... read more

We found Phil's here..(via Trip Advisor) driving from Oak Alley Plantation to Biloxi on a Saturday afternoon . Nice folks seated us promptly and our drinks and order arrived quickly. The husband and I shared the Shrimp & Fries (24-12.99?) and he enjoyed a cup of gumbo. Rated it a 7 ...which is pretty good on his scale! It's not... More

Great restaurant on the water in Slidell. Many delicious things on the menu but it's hard to pass up the shrimp special, 24 jumbo fried shrimp with fries. The best anywhere. We sometimes add a big soft shell crab to our order. Delicious. Without question they have the best, freshest raw oysters anywhere..and we have had them everywhere! Great hamburgers... More

Restaurants serves excellent seafood and has a nice relaxing atmosphere. Prices are quire reasonable and portions are plenty even for the hearty eater. We arrived on a Thursday evening without reservation, but only had a 10 minute wait. Alcohol prices are also reasonable. I definitely recommend this place.

This in in my neighborhood and it is a great seafood restaurant on the marina. The shrimp special is the best deal. 24 fried shrimp and fries for $11.99. Beer is served in frozen pithcers and mugs.

I stayed in the Sleep Inn just down the road from Phil's and when looking for dinner recommendations the staff raved about this place. I got the fried catfish which was to die for! I even got to watch the sun set on the water as I enjoyed it!

Was in Slidell for a glass show and Phil's was recommended by a friend of a friend. It was about 130 on Saturday and the place was packed. Most of the front was taken up by a high school reunion lunch and they were really loud. The back was closed off for a funeral after gathering. We were seated after... More

Had the soft shell crab with crawfish tails and mushrooms. It was delicious! The presentation wasn't fancy, just good eating!

We stumbled upon this café on our way from New Orleans to Pensacola. Stopped for gas and asked the locals for a good place to have lunch. They told us about Phil's just down the road. We dined on shrimp and gator. It was delicious! The staff was friendly and took time to talk about the history of this café... More

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
