Great food, quiet enough for good conversation, and reasonable prices. The outside rear has a lovely view of Bayou Bonfouca framed with old cypress trees.

Jazz brunch was excellent. Although it was a bit cold outside they did supply outdoor heaters but this is what I get for not making a reservation (lol). Highly recommend making a reservation in the future however they were very accommodating. Can't wait to go back again as I've already made the reservation.

Sunday brunch was delicious, we are outside and there was some jazz players there that were amazing. The food was fantastic, not crazy about the mimosas, but the bloody Mary's were nice and spicy. Great selection of local dishes, lots of flavor and great service. Really enjoyed the experience.

Just the view off the back deck is worth the trip, but the food is truly outstanding. Palmettos has gotten better with age. Great dining experience and wonderful place to hold an event.

They recommended the black drum fish and it was perfect. The beignets were awesome and the drinks matched the meal. This place has a great patio ambience that gives you good food while on a real down home bayou.
