The service was fast, and they were very good-always checking on you, and very courteous. The crawfish platter was delicious and the prices were good. Would definitely try there if you’re visiting Biloxi.

Went early to avoid the wait. Great crawfish. It’s kind of off the beaten path but well worth the trip.
