Very popular restaurant. Po'Boys were good, but haven't had them before, so have nothing to compare them to. We had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated - as we left, the line was even longer.

Food was fantastic. Blackened tuna is the best. The stuffed mushrooms are a must. I will keep going back to eat

The service and food were great as 99% of the other reviewers have stated. I arrived 5 minutes after opening and the place was half full. When I left it was packed. Sign of a well loved restaurant.

The Gumbo was outstanding! Service was great. We decided to split a whole poboy but was way too much food. Snack for later on!

Southside is one of my favorite Slidell dining options. The atmosphere, service, and food is always top notch. I would go so far as to say Southside has the best Reuben in the area.

Depending on the day and time this is a great place to eat. If you're NOT patient on any level - do not go doing game time. Otherwise - the service is great and the atmosphere is family friendly.

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
