My brother-in-law came to visit from Nevada. He wanted to eat local food with good portion size servings. We decided to take him to Southside Cafe since he was not sure what he wanted to eat, if seafood, pasta or something else. We were very...More

Both the service and food was mediocre. I had the stuffed artichoke as an appetizer, which I wouldn't recommend, and a cup of seafood gumbo and New Orleans muffuletta for my main course, both were ok but not noteworthy.More

This is a nice place, with a nice menu, and it seems to be popular with the locals. The staff/waitress was very friendly and the food was good.

This place gets busy, but they always manage to get your food out pretty fast. Red beans and rice are good, and hamburgers are really good.

This is the best restaurant we have found in Slidell LA. The food was excellent and our waitress, Shelby, made sure that everything was just right. (Highly recommended.)

This restaurant is so noisy you can't hear the person next to you. I had to send back my lunch because the shrimp was so salty I couldn't eat it. The wait for your food will be longer than you have time for.More

Not quite sure which bridge you are speaking of. However the restaurant is in Slidell. I stated at the Hampton Inn just off the interstate. It is a mile or so west of the Hampton Inn. You will turn left at the last red light... More
