We went to Southside for supper with some of Hubs business colleagues. The waitress was very friendly and helpful.
Hubs had the fried shrimp, oysters and fish basket with Mac & cheese. It was so much food he couldn’t eat it all. He also had the baked potato soup.
I ordered grilled tuna with Mac & cheese and salad.
This is good food!

We're so glad that you had a great time with us! We always want you to enjoy the food and service while you're here, so it's great to hear that it was perfect. Also, it's awesome that you tried the grilled tuna and mac and cheese! Come back to try some gumbo or a po' boy next time.

Cheers,

This is an oasis in a corner group of small businesses. Large parking lot. Order at the counter and sit inside or on spacious deck. The menu is on the wall and on folded paper and it changes. Rocket coffee is well made. Music is from an album on a turntable. Bakery goods are displayed and delicious.
Unfortunately, they close at 3:00 pm.

Thanks for taking the time to write this! However, we believe that this was meant for a different business. Our hours are 11 am to 10 pm Monday through Saturday and 11 am to 9 pm on Sunday. Hopefully you'll decide to give us a try the next time you're in the area!

Cheers,
Chris, Managing Partner

We had a great dinner at the Southside Cafe during a pre-cruise stay in Slidell, LA.
It was very busy on a Fri night however our wait for 2 was only 15 minutes. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive . The food came out quickly, looked and tasted outstanding. We had sandwiches (Rueben and Club), along with Onion Strings and Sweet Potato Fries and the portions were big. You can't go wrong at Southside!

The Tuna Salad was fresh with little surprises of bacon, fresh ripe strawberries, hard boiled egg, perfectly seared tuna and a delightful strawberry vinaigrette! The walls are covered with pictures and memorabilia honoring our Veterans. The acoustics make conversation a bit difficult. However, worth the drive :)
