I've had oysters in New Orleans, Grand Central Oyster Bar,Seattle and Long Island and these were the best ever. Don't pass up the cinnamon roll bread pudding. Our waitress, Laura was a gem.

Cory was AWESOME! We ordered Shrimp and Grits with jalapeno pepper hush puppies, Seafood Pasta with asparagus and gorgonzola butter. The Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan draft beer was a good accompaniment to our meal. Staff was very tuned in and courteous!

The first time we visited the wait was over an hour so we decided to go to the restaurant next door. We eventually came back and the host sat us immediately.

Good food, great service but a little on the pricey side. Nice place to treat yourself while on vacation.

In the Biloxi area for business, did my homework and visited this place. Very glad I did! Very friendly staff (the young lady bartender was extremely pleasant and helpful), very good food (grilled oysters pretty good for outside of NOLA), and very good beer selection. Sat at the friendly bar, and had a great time. Didn't know this place has... More

Great meal! I wished the raw oysters were a bit more flavorful but the crab cakes were fantastic. I got the gumbo as well, which was good. My friend loved the shrimp. Good beer prices. This place is walking distance from the Hard Rock and, if you're a bit more willing to stroll, the Beau Rivage and Four Points Sheraton.... More

We have visited here several times and each time have been extremely impressed. This is one of the best restaurants we have eaten at in Biloxi. The atmosphere is great, service has never faltered. The food is great and the value for all the above is exceptional. Definately would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

This lovely restaurant in the center of downtown Biloxi was a very pleasant surprise. We stopped in before we registered at our hotel on a whim. The oysters on the half shell were delicious, but the Royal Red shrimp were outstanding. Service was attentive and prices fair. Highly recommend this restaurant
