Was referred to Phil's. They did not disappoint! Beautiful setting right on the lake. It would have been nice to have outdoor seating but at least you can see the water. The food was great! Service was exceptional!

There were 14 of us & we had reserved seating. The food was great. Hubby & I ordered the fried catfish & it was huge. Nice & thick unlike any I've had before. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their entrees as well. We ordered their mozzarella sticks and they were scrumptious. We did save room for key lime pie &... More

Phil’s is where locals go for a good seafood meal. The service is always good the portions large enough to share. And the frozen beer glasses make beer taste even better.

Enroute to New Orleans, we'd heard about Phil's Marina Cafe, so we visited their website, downloaded their menu, and by the time we got to the exit, we were famished. We found a table overlooking the marina, and our server, Brandon shortly appeared. We both ordered a draft beer which arrived in a frozen mug -so frozen it super chilled... More

If you want the best and freshest seafood in SLIDELL you must try Phil's Marina, the shrimp special believe me is special. Their Italian dishes are delicious. They also have the best martini in SLIDELL. Give them a try you won't regret it.

We live in the area and frequently visit Phil's. The view of the harbor and basin is outstanding. In the summer, Tammany Yacht Club has summer sailing camp. It is fun to watch the kids sailing and racing in the harbor. On Wednesday nights in the spring and fall the big sailboats race. The food is wonderful. Everything is good-... More

My wife had crab cakes that were probably the best we have ever had. I had the Roast Beef Poboy which was very good. One of the best I have had in a while. It's getting hard to find good poboys in the Baton Rouge area.
