“Local seafood”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Went to Vera's at reccomendation of hotel desk clerk. Not a large menu, but fried seafood was tasty, though a little pricey. Had fried oysters & shrimp with fries. Fries were cold, but enjoyed the seafood. Wife had the grilled shrimp & baked potatoes....both were enjoyable.

“Great food! Great service!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Went to Vera's because of the key card add but was very surprised at the quality. The service was wonderful as well. Had the seafood platter and the catfish was really well done. The stuffed crab was divine. It's not fancy but it's good food, and a lot of it, in a charming location with staff who treat you like family.

“Not Impressed”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

I did not want a whole lot so I ordered the seafood gumbo. Never again! There were a few shrimp and crawfish tails but no real flavor. My sons make it much better.

“Nice enough”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I stopped in after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. I had a shrimp po boy and wife had shrimp pasta alfredo. The place is nice, the food and service was good, but I didnt leave wanting to shout about it from the rooftops. Worth a stop if you are close, but don't go too far out of your way for it.

“Not what it used to be but good”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Passing through Slidell yesterday and saw Vera's. The service was good and the atmosphere is new "down the bayou". I found the prices a little high for what you get but still doable. Vera's used to be a little place down on the lake that had seafood, fried, boiled, etc. Since Katrina it was rebuilt up the road a little on 2020 highway 190 close to the busy shopping area. It still has good fried seafood, but no more boiled crabs or shrimp. The gumbo is ok but not very flavorful even though it was full of shrimp and other goodies. Had a good selection of sandwiches and appetizers. I think it catering more to the shoppers for a quick bite than it had in the past. Worth a stop if you're in the area but don't drive far.
