“A Slidell area original”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

We often ate at the original Vera’s on Lake Pontchartrain before Hurricane Katrina washed it away. This was our second visit to the restaurant in its new location. The fried seafood is as good as always. And it retains much of the atmosphere of the original.

“Local seafood”
3 of 5 bubbles 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!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
2 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
