We went to lunch with our company CPA. Lunch was delicious. We went in not knowing what to order and our great waitress talked us into the days special. It was one of the best meals I have eaten in a long time.

I have been there for meetings and dinner with family. I like how intimate it can be and also how there are rooms for big groups. The food is prepared and presented beautifully as well as delicious. The food is fresh and flavorful. The variety of seafood, meats, and pasta meals should take care of everyone. Beautiful views of the... More

Nice location on the bayou. Food was very good. Bar was simple and not a deep choice on liquors. That was disappointing. Way to basic at the bar!! Service average!!

Walk in and leave your cares behind. Peaceful setting, excellent service, food is good though a little pricey for the portions ....... the drinks more than make up for anything lacking

It's not a place you'll see as you drive by, you need to know about it... and you should. The place is almost storybook like. Clean, lighted up and looking like any occasion is a festival. The staff could not be nicer, wait staff, bus staff, welcoming staff.... The food was fresh and OBVIOUSLY prepared in house. The sauces and... More

We held a rehearsal dinner in the Bayou Room or my son's wedding. The room and restaurant as a whole is beautiful and the wait staff was so amazing. Most of the food was delightful too. No place is perfect but my concerns were addressed and handled very quickly and to my satisfaction and that says a lot about Palmettos... More

I had the shrimp and grits which were very tasty and unusual. The grits were smoked Gouda grits and had been pan fried. Excellent flavor, just enough spice! Nice wine selection. The restaurant was very busy and they may have been slightly understaffed. Our server Pam, was lovely and apologized several times for the wait. Will definitely go back. The... More

A very lovely place for a delicious meal. Beautiful place for a wedding. We made reservations for 16 people. The staff was awesome.... had everything ready for us & was very attentive. Food was all delicious. Went outside after to enjoy the deck & view of the bayou since it was too hot to eat out there today.

Thank dottietb
