Fabulous catfish Kaitlin and fab Mac and cheese. Watch out for the horseradish and cocktail sauce it will blind you but it is so good. Pretty good bar. Go early it gets crowded with locals. Oh and the best oysters because they are very picky about what they serve

Best catfish poboy anywhere in Louisiana, or in the world. You won't be disappointed! Avoid weekend and Friday night if you don't like to wait. Lots boaters.

Food is consistently the highest quality. As busy as the place is, the noise level is still in conversation level. Fun place for families and large groups as well as couples dining. Service is fast, courteous, and friendly.

Traveling from Biloxi to New Orleans, we were looking for a recommendation from Trip Advisor. Found this awesome restaurant on the water. My husband and I both had the Snapper Pontchartrain. It was excellent, some of the best seafood we had on our trip. Server (Mindy) was efficient, patiently explained our choices, and even sold us a t-shirt! Since the... More

I heard from some locals that there was a nice Marina restaurant called "Phil's Marina" in Slidell, LA. I decided to take my friend and have lunch there.

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.
