My husband and I wanted authentic Louisiana food and we got it. Their Shrimp Po Boy was GREAT! I mean AMAZING! FANTASTIC! DELICIOUS? Did I say it was good?? Their Crabs, Red Shrimp, Oysters on the half shell, and Bread Pudding with Pecans were DIVINE. A must try! Enjoy!

Expect traditional South Louisiana fried seafood and some specialty dishes as well as great bar. Under the Tammany Yacht Club, Phil's has a nautical feel to it. Easy access off I-10 at the north end of the "six-mile" bridge of I-10.

I Would Not Eat here again, food was horrible, not worth the drive, to expensive for what we ate, chicken fry was not home made deep fried right out of the freezer.

We'd been driving all day without a decent meal, so we were ready for an early dinner (around 5:00 pm). This was a good choice. It's open-seating, so we found a satisfactory table and seated ourselves. We had been greeted at the door and were promptly greeted at our table. Our waitress took our drink order and brought them within... More

As is always the case the food is done right and the portions are huge. Food and appetizers came out in quick order. Phil's never disappoints.

My wife found Phil's while looking online for restaurants in Slidell and I decided to take her there as part of her birthday week-end. Let me say we will be going back again real soon. Kaitlin, our waitress, did an outstanding job taking care of us and we will ask for her again. Started with the crab au gratin appetizer... More

It's pretty average to all the other fried seafood restaurants in Slidell however, I will say they have the Best Catfish around! We go just for the Catfish!!

We came here for lunch back in March. Our realtor had given us a gift card after we closed on our house in December 2015, and we were waiting for a warmer month to visit. We had an excellent view of the water, and the food was fresh and wonderful. Service was slightly slow, but not worth complaining about. I... More

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!
