We had some real good gumbo followed by terrific soft shelled crabs and great French fries..from a previous visit we had really really good Reuben sandwiches..we sometimes forget to head that way to eat but we need to jog our memory more as this place is consistently very good.

While on a swamp tour, we asked our very Cajun captain, "where do the locals eat?". We told him we would like some real, southern cookin. He told us the best place in town was Southside Café. As soon as we walked in, we could tell we were exactly where we wanted to be. The friendly local atmosphere was very inviting. There were many menu selections to choose from including southern dishes such as crawfish, gumbo, catfish, country fried steak and many other dishes. They also serve salads, sandwiches, burgers. The portions are large but the prices are not. They also have a buffalo sauce that ranges from a 1 to 5 in heat. Most people opt for the 3, I however like very hot so I took the 5. It was very hot, but not the hottest I have had, but it did have a good taste. If you are looking for an authentic southern restaurant popular with locals and unknown by most tourist, then this restaurant is for you.

You know those places where you walk in and you can see this is the local gathering spot. Well this is one of those places. A feel good place where friends gather to talk about their day, week, the big fish - well you catch my drift. Just a couple other things about the atmosphere, if you are a military fan you may like to roam around the place. The only downside of this place is the acoustics, when the place is packed it is noisy.
Now for the food. Good variety on the menu - we like the chef salad - with killer blue cheese dressing, speg w. meatballs (huge) and roast beef po'boys. Wed. is bike night and Thurs/Sat are steak nights.

Great place for Veterans, for Family, for Saints Fans, WHO DAT! Sometimes too much fat on the steaks, but little else to complain about. EXCEPT FOR THE NOISE IF YOU WANT TO HEAR THE PERSON NEXT TO YOU at busy times. And forget that back room, the noise level will make you nauseous. Greta sandwiches, great mixed drinks, great service.

This restaurant has a huge menu ! Breakfast, lunch, dinner and offers catering services.

The food has always been great and the portions huge !

The bar area is large ( 3 sided) and a great place to enjoy your food as well as your cocktail. The seats are comfortable and at the right height.

This restaurant is spotless and the staff are very friendly.

Plenty of parking.
