I pass this restaurant every day. I've lived in Ocean Springs for 5 months, and we finally decided to try Hartz. The reviews on this gem are spot on. Delicious chicken, well made sides, and good dessert. The fried chicken was crunchy and moist. The...More

Long been a favorite place on the coast to get your chicken fix. The food is plentiful and good tasting and a good value. It is kinda small so if you see a full parking lot drive down through Ocean Springs for a look and...More

Hartz is a great family dining experience. Fried chicken prepared the old fashion southern way. Full buffet with chicken and vegetables and dessert. Takeout is available. Great for kids because they choose what the want. Service is good. Always busy. Local regulars dine there often.

First, let me say that I love Popeye's chicken. I have and always will. When it comes to a close second place, I'll always say Hartz! I'm more impressed with the side options from Hartz, which ranges from fried bread to pea salad!

Hartz has pretty good chicken, in a fast food establishment. They also offer a buffet with a good selection of southern cooked veggies. No, none of it is healthy, but it does taste good.

We frequently use their drive-through for our Sunday after church meal because their fried chicken is delicious and the side offerings of vegetables are like home cooked. Their yeast rolls are very good but our favorite is the garlic toast ~ yum!

Here they only have the brown gravy, but it is SO GOOD! You usually see what gravy when there is fried food without the bones, like a chicken fried steak or chicken tenders.
