Party of 3, each ordered different dish. This restaurant was recommended to us by friend's from Slidell. We are from Mississippi, we will go back, delicious meal! We went at 5pm no waiting time.

Perhaps my favorite restaurant in the world. The fried oysters are beyond superb. The gumbo is excellent. Service is attentive, friendly and memorable. Easy to re-visit this place on a single day!

Crabcakes were outstanding, potato salad very good as was house salad with their own dressing. Tuna Zachary and Shrimp & Eggplant boat both get high marks. If fresh, local seafood isn't your thing, the roast beef poboy was awesome-

Phil's is by far our favorite place for seafood. The fried bowtie pasta and crab dip is amazing. The staff is friendly and attentive and Phil's has a nice view of the marina and a very local atmosphere.

Ruby red shrimp was good. First time I've ever eaten it and enjoyed it. Nice place to eat dinner after docking the boat. Everyone had a great time. Service good. Inexpensive.

Situated on a marina on the North Shore the restaurant was clean, the seafood was fresh and the scenery was relaxing. We had fried catfish and shrimp. The fish filet was of varying thickness and a little hard to cook evenly. The shrimp were good....More

You would have to call the restaurant directly and ask, but their grilled shrimp is good as well.

You would have to call to see if crabs are available. It depends on the season.

I was a guest there. I don't know if they serve it or not. You can check out their menu on line. Sorry I couldn't answer your question.
