We visited Palmettos last weekend and upon arrival found the grounds to be pretty. We opted for indoor dining instead of the porch. Inside we found a nicely decorated dining room with linen covered tables. The menu selection is very small so you'd hope the...More

Restaurant sitting off the main strip and on the water. The food was good, the service was good and the atmosphere was good. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who lives in the Slidell area.

Awesome outdoor venue! Well lit! Well cooked by fans. The food is great! Nice for a wedding! Only thing I didn't like was that the patrons inside can look outside at your private party. It was like they were a part of the wedding. Lol
