KY’s Olde Towne Bicycle Shop, Slidell, LA Report #333

The city of Slidell is located across the eastern side of Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans. This place is in a section of the city referred to as “Olde Towne”. Quaint little area. And the building this restaurant is located in has a long history, dating back to 1902! It’s at the bottom of the… Continue reading KY’s Olde Towne Bicycle Shop, Slidell, LA Report #333

Vera’s Seafood, Slidell, LA Report #269

This place has been in business a long time.   It opened in 1952, and was built on wooden pilings over the water on Lake Pontchartrain in Slidell, Louisiana.  Hurricane Katrina destroyed the place, so they moved to this inshore location in a strip mall. Being in a strip mall, it doesn’t look very appealing… Continue reading Vera’s Seafood, Slidell, LA Report #269

Fatty’s Seafood Restaurant, Slidell, LA Report #220

Every now and then I escape the city of New Orleans.  Today was one of those days, and as usual, food was on my mind.  We ended up in Slidell, Louisiana, at Fatty’s Seafood Restaurant. Nice looking place.  The way it’s set up it kind of reminds me of a sports bar.  Big bar and… Continue reading Fatty’s Seafood Restaurant, Slidell, LA Report #220

Robin’s Wharf Dockside Seafood Restaurant, Slidell, LA Report #88

  I saw this place on Groupon and thought the menu looked good, so I figured I’d cross the lake from New Orleans and give it a try.  Pretty place.  Right on a waterway that gives you access to Lake Pontchartrain.  You can pull your boat up, dock it, even gas it up if needed,… Continue reading Robin’s Wharf Dockside Seafood Restaurant, Slidell, LA Report #88

BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, Slidell, LA Report #62

BJ’s is great.  Unfortunately for me they don’t have one in New Orleans.  The only three in Louisiana are in Slidell, Baton Rouge and Lafayette.  I had to attend a family funeral in Mississippi, so on the way back we decided to stop at the one in Slidell for dinner. As you’d guess by the… Continue reading BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, Slidell, LA Report #62

Southside Café, Slidell, LA Report #58

    This place is in Slidell, Louisiana, which is about a 45 minute drive from my house in New Orleans depending on traffic.  It’s so good I’d gladly make the drive every week to eat there.  Not only have I never had a bad meal there, in maybe 5 visits I haven’t found one… Continue reading Southside Café, Slidell, LA Report #58

Red Robin, Slidell, LA Report #36

This is one of my favorite burger places.  I wish we had one in New Orleans, but we don’t, so if I crave one of their burgers I have to drive across the lake to Slidell.  Since I was headed that way and had a free burger because my birthday is coming up I stopped… Continue reading Red Robin, Slidell, LA Report #36
