Authentic CAJUN GUMBO! Thick, full of shrimp, crabmeat and okra. Yummy! Thinly sliced onion rings were delicious!

The Ole Biloxi Schooner presents a taste of old Biloxi. Like most of the restaurants in Biloxi the food is excellent without a doubt; however, the service is outstanding. This family owned and operated restaurant has the finest waitresses and cooks in Biloxi. My favorite dish would be (1) Gumbo: excellent taste and quantity, (2) Fried shrimp: crisp and well... More

Stepping into the restaurant is like stepping into the 50's. The old school lights, white tiles and black leather booths set the stage for an amazing lunch. The sandwiches include New Orleans style PoBoy's and burgers. (Table favorites were oyster and roast beef PoBoy). There are fish platters and salads, as well as a few appetizers. (Table favorite was the... More

We came here just after arriving in Biloxi. We shared the seafood platter and I was hoping for some good fresh seafood. Unfortunately it was all deep fried and hard to say what was beneath the thick batter. I will give the place the benefit of the doubt and say that it was fresh seafood but the batter was too... More

The fried shrimp is fantastic, wish we had tried fried fish too. The service is incredible, the people are great and the food is good as well. We didn't much care for the ribeye steak, but my God, we didn't go looking for a hand out, but they didn't charge us for my wife's meal because she didn't like the... More

The food was definitely good and came out within 10 minutes, but next time I get homefries I will have to make sure they fully cook the onions. It turns out you just go pay at the register, but it was 10 minutes after eating before i found that out, even though there was only one other table of guests.

All I can say is "WOW". A big thanks to the gentleman at our pool who heard us discussing lunch plans. He highly recommended the Schooner. No fancy stuff here...just good, no heavenly good food. We ate here 2 days in a row and took home a gallon of gumbo to share with friends. Perfect PoBoys, gumbo to die for,... More

We arrived here about 1230 on a Monday and there was plenty of seating (WARNING: Several places to eat in Biloxi are closed on Monday). We had the crab claw basket, gravy fries, and crawfish po'boy. Our total was around $25 or so. The food was had a great fresh taste and the atmosphere was really warming. It felt like... More

Biloxi Schooner leads the pack in producing the best po-boys imaginable. I’ve tasted and eaten a lot of po-boys around the South; I have yet to find one that surpasses those produced at that owner-operated place in downtown Biloxi. The Schooner is my traditional lunch spot for Biloxi trips. It is a rare visit that I don’t eat one of... More

Being locals we know of most good food on the Coast. Somehow we overlooked?the Schooner since it had moved after Katrina. Until one afternoon we decided on having lunch there. As it turned out, the food was great. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. The service was excellent. Now we make it there quite often and find it consistently very... More
