We went to this restaurant for the first time two weekends ago. It is now one of my favorites. The food was well prepared and the service was excellent. Our waiter, Duane, was very helpful and well informed about both the food and drink menus (try the margaritas). I tried a seafood platter just to try a little of everything... More

We started with the tuna dip. It was really smokey and delicious. Very fresh. Really enjoyed our voodoo shrimp po boys! Our waiter Marcus was great! Will definitely be back!

We had fried green tomatoes/crab cakes, dozen oysters on the half shell, dozen oyster sampler, seafood stuffed portobello, aspagus, sweet potato creme brûlée. All were very good to amazing (FGT/CC and sweet potatoes). Nice atmosphere, friendly and efficient service. Highly recommend, however not inexpensive. $80 for two, no cocktails, before tip.

This was our second time eating at this restaurant and once again it was delicious. We had the BBQ Shrimp and the Red Royals. The meal was perfect. Our service was great and the building is so quaint. I will definitely go back for a 3rd time on our next trip south.

Had the oyster sampler last night good as always. Was still a little hungry so had the fried green tomatoes with crab meat appetizer which was also really good. My only suggestion would be to get more local beers on tap. There are several very good ones and you only have 3. The service was very good also.

The building looks like it was plucked right out of the French Quarter in New Orleans. Inside, the decor is also charming. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and provided excellent service. On her recommendation, we got an order of the Ruby Reds (shrimp). Best shrimp ever! They taste almost like lobster. The gumbo and the blackened snapper... More

White tablecloth. Mostly seafood and a few chicken dishes. Menu is a bit limited, but very nice. Have a Full bar, but limited wine choices. Family-friendly. For some reason they tend to give too small of a table to a group, so be sure to tell them if you need more room. They get pretty busy on weekend nights so... More

The food was great, and out server Mathew, knew the menu all too well, suggesting things for us to try, and making sure we never ran out of our drinks. We will be requesting him again the next time we in Biloxi. Loved the Tempah fried asparagus, with a sweet tangy sauce, drizzled on top, and a wasabi cream sauce... More
