I sat in the bar area, had a local beer (blonde Biloxi Beach) and the portobella plate. I found the service professional but cold (no smile). just one thing, I found that... More

What a neat surprise! Great use of space, incredible seafood at a very reasonable price! Drinks were fantastic, bartender/waiter friendly, suggestions were spot on! Red Fish in New Orleans sauce was fabulous, the dozen oyster sampler with four types of oysters was shell-lickin' good, the fried green tomato and crab cakes were a perfect blend of MS Coast and MS...

The entire experience, made our trip! We were greeted at the door by Erin! This amazingly gracious and conscientious hostess quickly assessed our needs, and provided the perfect seating relative to our request for romantic ambience! Her genuine smile was a rare pleasure! Our waiter, Matthew, demonstrated the highest degree of skill, excellence, and knowledge as he attended to our... More

This is my go to place for the type of food that says "Gulf Coast Cuisine." It's also the place that I recommend to any of my friends from out of town who come visit Biloxi. Wait staff is always great, the bar is good for some drinks while you wait for a table, which can be up to an... More

The seafood was fantastic! I wish I had more room to try everything on the menu. A little pricy but, the service was great and I would definitely go back.

We were seated promptly. Our server acknowledged us immediately. Appetizer came out in perfect time and the entree followed in perfect time.

The only bad place about this restaurant is that it is so doggone good we always have to come back here when visiting Biloxi, making it very hard to try some of the other class beaneries in this town. Tonight I had the Shrimp Orleans and the Vudoo Shrimp meal. These are both to-die-for and are only a small part... More

We had read about royal red shrimp but the ones we ate at other places didn't wow us. Thank goodness we came here because oh boy were these amazing. They had a hint of spiciness on the shell but the meat tasted succulent like lobster. And they were huge! Even the clarified butter was perfect. We accompanied the shrimp with... More
