Southside is a fixture in Slidell. They have fried seafood and sandwiches at a reasonable price. Always nice and reasonable service.

Visited Southside many times but the last was the worse. Ordered and then waited for food. The server was so rude. Each time we asked about the food he gave us very lame excuses and it was clear he didn't have a clue what we ordered.

This is very disappointing to hear. High quality service is important to us, so we want to apologize for your experience. Hopefully you know from past visits that this is not our normal service and will give us another chance sometime. Would it be possible to contact you so I can learn more about your visit?

Wishing you well,
Chris, Managing Partner

I have eaten here several time while staying in Slidell. The food is good in a casual setting. But, it can be loud and slow. Last week it took over an hour to get our food, so don’t go if you are in a hurry.

The place was crowded but we did not have any trouble getting seated. I typically prefer a quieter eating establishment, but I was not bothered by noise or mass of people.
The waiter was polite, fast, and very accommodating. I had the pork cutlet, which was deep fried and served with Mac & cheese and green beans with bacon. Very tasty!
I’ll be back!
