“Lovely Atmosphere & good food too!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Palmetto's is a lovely charming restaurant. It has a great atmosphere and great food. The Trout Almondine is wonderful! No other place in Slidell can beat it. It also makes for an awesome place to throw a wedding or party!

“Very nice”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Only been here once and it was for a bridal shower. Food was delicious, inside and outside were beautiful. I can't say much about the service just because it was a party so a lot going on. From what I can tell it was good. Everyone always had full glasses of drink.

“Bayou Treasure! Great atmosphere and dining delight”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

This restaurant is a real treasure for its location on the bayou and meal offerings in a relaxed atmosphere. The staff are friendly, well informed, and accommodating.

The bayou setting is superb and I highly recommend taking the short walk out to view the water from the boat dock either before or after dinner. There is also live jazz some evenings that can be either a focal point or a great backdrop that does not disrupt conversation, depending on where you choose to sit.

The menu has a great variety for both the surf and turf lover. The sugar cane pork chop and the catfish bonfouca are two favorites.

Highly recommended for locals and visitors alike.

“Delicious Food, Great Ambiance”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Lovely hidden restaurant. Looks like a repurposed house from the inside. They should clean up the visible open space upstairs because patrons can see the storage items up there and it detracts from the otherwise crisp and clean look. Some patrons were a little dressed up and others more casual. The best po'boy we had during our Louisiana trip. The salads were also excellent choices. Make this a stop for lunch or dinner if you're in the area!
