Great prices for the quality of food. The ambiance is good too! Great southern, Cajun feel! We have tried the shrimp and grits, crab cakes, pasta half shell, and brunch. It’s all good! You can’t go wrong! The kids menu has a great value too!...More

Some of the best gumbo I've ever had !!! My husbands chicken was perfect. My daughters fish was delicious and my granddaughters fettuccine alfredo with shrimp was just the way she likes it.

We had chargrilled oysters, fried green tomatoes, and a Parmesan and herb crusted grouper. All of it was outstanding! We did not mind the 20 minute wait at all because we knew it would be worth it. The staff all moved about like they knew...More

My mother-in-law & I went to the Biloxi restaurant after we saw the afternoon showing of the “Nutcracker” at the Sanger theater. We had crab cakes and they were excellent. It’s just too pricey of a restaurant for our limited pocketbooks.

Get there early. Phenomenal food. My wife had the filet and the sauce was outstanding. I ordered the delectable grouper. Great wine list and craft beers.

Absolutely, we are open normal hours on Easter Sunday, in fact we normally open the doors a little before 11 just to get folks in and seated if there's a line outside.

You can see the water from the right spot in either location, however in both locaations we are a couple blocks off of the Gulf, so the view of the water isn't the best.
