On our way to another restaurant, saw Palmettos when driving by , turn around to see what it was. Since we live 2-2 1/2 hours away we did not know about this place.
What a great surprise to find such a nice place on a bayou with beautiful surroundings, wonderful food and the friendliest, most accommodating staff. Looking forward to going back and taking friends.

We took some friends for brunch last Sunday. They had never been to Palmettos so we thought they would enjoy something new. The buffet was fabulous...grits and grillades, shrimp Diane, spinach casserole, turnip greens, fish amandine, crawfish etoufe, oyster dressing, a carving station, and omelettes on demand to include duck and salmon. And dessert too! We left full and happy.

A group of us had brunch and it was fantastic. We arrived by boat, and tied up and the dock for a short walk to the back deck. The Sunday brunch includes a mimosa which made it even more enjoyable. The variety of dishes was well selected and the desserts were yummy!

Visiting friends in our old neighborhood so we decided to gather at Palmettos. Wonderful changes to the interior! Really takes advantage of the bayou view! I was pleased to find duck still on the menu along with my favorite Trout Almondine but the amazing surf and turf special stole the show. Softshell crab and Braised Short Ribs really unique paring! Eight of us in the group and everything was wonderful. good food, good service, good friends and great memories!
If you haven't been in a awhile this is the restaurant to take advantage of the short Louisiana spring weather!

We were going to Mandeville, LA and wanted to stop in Slidell to eat lunch and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and were we glad we did. It is off the beaten path, actually right on the bayou so you can come by boat. They have a large outdoor patio but it was raining so we sat inside by a window. The food was delicious and a great value for the money. I had the shrimp po'boy and my husband had a catfish dish which was one of their specialties. The homemade fries came in a wax paper type cup like fish and chips come. The po'boy had about a dozen shrimp on it. The dessert was excellent also. Our waiter, Justin, was great. He seemed to know just when to arrive to whisk the dishes away or refill water glasses. He was also very personable.
We really enjoyed this place and plan to stop there when we head that way again.
