Phil's has become our GO-TO restaurant in Slidell. Slidell is blessed with many, many fine sea food eating establishments but this is by far the best. Everything on the menu is superb and the portions are huge. Anything you order made from swimming critters will...More

This is my favorite place for seafood. The boiled seafood is consistently delicious. Their shrimp special could feed two people. Great crab cakes and crabmeat au gratin. There are Italian dishes too if you aren't in the mood for seafood.

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-

I had some gumbo and a soft-shell crab dish. It was flavorful and seemed fresh, it was just missing something, didn't really stand out. The vegetables were drowned in butter, could barely eat them. Sat at the bar, and wanted to have a few beverages,...More

This place is always super. For some reason they hate serving onions with anything be it sandwiches, salads or entrees. If you request onions they will bring them but charge an extra $1.00 or more extra. Strange for a restaurant to charge extra for such...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.
