Reviewed 13 June 2014

To start, Taranto's Crawfish is definately off on the beaten path. At lunch time, it is packed with all of the locals, which is a great sign for any great resturaunt. It has a unique atmosphere, enjoyable if you like sitting close to some very friendly southern gentlemen. Now for the best part, the food. The gumbo is to die for (good thing they sell it by the gallon!) The poboys are also out of this world! An ice cold glass of sweet tea or beer tops off this incredible dive. You know the crawfish is fresh when they sell it live by the pound!

The crayfish was awesome, the service was very friendly and helpful and it was quick too. Affordable prices made it even better. Will go back!

Although the location is a little challenging to find, this place was 'hands-down' the best restaurant we dined at in our two-week road trip across the south. I lived in New Orleans 25 years ago and remember what good crawfish tastes like, and these folks do too. My girlfriend and I had a 2-pound special of boiled crawfish w/ corn and potatoes, and spit a 12-inch Crawfish Tail Po Boy sandwich. They were outstanding and we were full, but the desert of Bread Pudding w/ praline sauce was the best we ever had. We are going back to Florida next year and will go back to this place when we do.

There is a reason the locals keep this place a secret! It's by far the best seafood around! We went on a Wednesday which is all you can eat crawfish night! My husband almost made himself sick on the crawfish! I ate the boiled shrimp. It was not all you could eat but I almost could not finish it! We have eaten at a lot of places in Biloxi but this is by far the best! It's not a big fancy place but the food and service is fabulous! We will be back for sure! You cannot leave Biloxi without eating here!
