Was working in Chalmette and staying in Slidell. Was looking for a nice, non-chain operated, restaurant. Read some of the reviews on TripAdvisor and thought would give it a try. Absolutely not disappointed. Have dinned at many restaurants around the world and my wife owns a highly rated restaurant and would definitely go back to Palmettos. Had as good a... More

Visiting the area and tried this restaurant upon a recommendation of a local: so glad I did! Fantastic setting on the bayou. Try to get a table on the outdoor deck if the weather cooperates. Decor and setting very pleasant (it was January - so no bugs). Salad dressings all homemade - honey mustard was outstanding. Entree of amberjack was... More

We LOVE Palmettos!!! We had our wedding there and also our rehearsal dinner there and both were absolutely perfect! Everything was so beautiful, the staff did an amazing job with everything, the food was the best ever. Brittany and Chardae were the best event coordinators we could have asked for. Every single detail was truly perfect and we thank you... More

Great place, delicious food and wonderful service! I was with my husband in Fountainblue State Park and when going back to New Orleans I found this restaurant on the internet basically by random choice. And it was a great choice.

Wow! We stumbled across Palmettos after spending the afternoon on Bourbon St. Talk about a striking difference. Pulling into the parking lot, we saw a wedding rehearsal in progress and thought it woudn't be open to the public. So glad we went inside to ask. The restaurant is formal yet cozy inside. The weather was too cool outside for us... More

My daughter had her wedding at Palmettos in November. We could not have asked for a better experience. The food was excellent and the lighting and scenery made everything so beautiful and romantic. The staff were very attentive and handled everything that we needed. Brittany Mott, our event coordinator, went above and beyond what was expected and made this a... More

Loved their fried green tomatoes, turtle queso, shrimp and grits and catch of the day (drum with blue crab). The atmosphere was amazing... we sat on back porch. Loved the giant fan that kept the air moving and the lights/ambiance made everything beautiful!

Very good food. I'm sure there was a good view on the deck or by the window but it was cold and rainy so we sat by the fire. Excellent service!

I tried this place again ..and again the food was cold. I'm not sure why this is an issue for them. And my guests there's was cold too. Will not be returning.

I took someone to lunch at Palmettos and as always was totally pleased. We sat near a back window so we could look out the back. It's beautiful even this time of year. So great atmosphere and great food. We had potato soup and crab cakes. The meal was fantastic. It's a little pricey but worth it.
