I finally decided to give this place a try even though it is out of my way. I just had to try the crabmeat au gratin entree. It also came with mac and cheese as well as a salad. The draft beer was so cold that the head on it even froze. The crabmeat was plentiful and real. The few... More

Food was ok. Service was ok. Maybe because it was the off season BUT it was average at best. Would not stop back of I was on the area.

Fried seafood at its best. The shrimp special is hard to beat. The fried pasta with the crab dip crazy as it sounds is awsome. Usually pretty good boiled shrimp. We go because the have good boat access. All in all pretty darn good no frills.

We're back at Phil's for another delicious dining experience. Tonight, we had one of their best deals, 24 Large Fried Shrimp ($11.95) & Crab Meat Au Gratin ($13.95). Both were brought to our table hot & in a timely manner, even considering that the restaurant was nearly full on this Friday night. The 24 large shrimp were perfectly cooked in... More

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
