Welcome to Middendorf’s Seafood Restaurant, “Home of the World Famous Original Thin Fried Catfish®.”  This year, we’re celebrating 90 years!  We’ve been around since 1934 with locations in Manchac, LA and Slidell, LA.

Families have been dining with us for generations, enjoying our delicious seafood, down home comfort and kid friendly environment.  We like to say “Memories are made at Middendorf’s.” 

To find out what’s happening, check out our calendar.  In the Fall, we have our annual celebrations of Fettuccine Frenzy and Oktoberfest.  Definitely stop by during the holidays too because we go all out with Christmas decor.  

If you’re interested in hosting an event with us, we have great rooms available for meetings, seminars, rehearsal dinners, birthdays, anniversaries, fundraisers, and more!  Want an extra special menu?  No problem.  Middendorf’s Owner Horst Pfeifer is a European Master Chef.

That’s a quick look at Middendorf’s. We look forward to seeing you!  When you dine with us, you will not only have a great meal and a great experience, but you will become a part of Middendorf’s legacy.  Welcome aboard. 🙂 #dorfer4life 

We’re turning 90 on July 4th, and we’re super excited about it!   We’re going to celebrate all week long at Middendorf’s Manchac and Middendorf’s Slidell. We hope you can join us in marking this big milestone. 

Check out this great interview with Owner Horst Pfeifer and Poppy Tooker.  They sat down at Middendorf’s Manchac to talk about the the restaurant’s long history. Life is really interesting being out in the Manchac Swamp.
