Love everything about this place! The food was divine. The service was excellent. The atmosphere and ambience was the absolute best! Can't wait to try the jazz brunch next time we are over that way ..

An out of the way, picturesque restaurant, with a waterway view, and quiet location off the RR tracks. View was nice. I was a single late lunch diner. That's where my wonderful experience ended. Have to say I didn't get a warm welcome from the waiter. Ordered the crab cakes. They were fine. But I was not perceived well, when... More

MamaGX4, I am very disappointed to learn of your experience here at Palmettos on the Bayou! This is certainly NOT acceptable. There is no minimum amount of money that needs to be spent here to expect a wonderful, relaxing meal and I am sorry that is what seems to have happened to you! I would appreciate an opportunity to speak... More

We had a wonderful Sunday brunch. There was a great selection of food - seafood, breakfast foods and meats. The desserts were well wonderful too. The service was outstanding and live jazz music played softly while we dined on the patio. I would highly recommend dining here.

We made an impromptu stop here for lunch on a beautiful autumn day. We arrived late for lunch on a Friday afternoon so we could not sit outside on the beautiful covered deck because that was being set up for a wedding. But we were able to sit right at the window over the deck and had an almost similar... More

I had my wedding and rehearsal lunch at Palmettos. I couldn't have asked for a better place or better service. Brittany made sure everything went as planned and made my experience much less stressful. The staff was also very nice and helpful. The guests were raving about the food and scenery. If you're looking for elegance and on a budget,... More

Had the red snapper, which was delicious. Good portions. Good southern cuisine. Nice quiet location. Great for a romantic dinner or for business guests.

Happy 20th Anniversary to us. My darling husband treated me here for our fun date. We did have an awesome time. Even got a pic with the Chef. He is top notch. This place overlooks the bayou and is phenomenal. Has an outdoor dining option as well as indoor. A dock & pier. Fantastic.

As I said. wonderful setting, great food - not a lot more to add other than the menu is creative and the atmosphere is charming. Highly recommend for a gathering of friends or for a special romantic occasion.

The food was amazing! We had the kabobs for an appetizer. The steak was soft, and was packed with flavor! Our entrees were Puppy Drum, and Catch Pontchartrain. They were both packed with flavor, good portions, and made me want to order more. The deserts were bread pudding and the chocolate wall. I have to say, it was an excellent... More
