A walk back in time

The food was good, the restaurant was a neat, unexpected find. Setting is an old diner, people are friendly, certainly worth a stop, and off of the beaten path. I was amazed at the constant flow of customers through the door, and the home town feel.

Great fried fish/shrimp po-boy. Super,super casual. Don't go here looking for a vegan meal, or a fine salad.

In a previous review of Biloxi Schooner I said that the restaurant “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.” I have not changed my mind in the past two years,...

This is a long time Biloxi restaurant, recommended by locals. Our party split between ordering the seafood platter special and the daily meatloaf special - both very good and very reasonably priced. Not fancy but very family friendly.

We love to have lunch here whether it's a po boy pressed and dressed, the lunch special, crab claws or gumbo. I grew up eating these traditional gulf coast favorites at their pre-Katrina location on the point and have been happy with the post Katrina location as well.

This place is the best place for lunch if you ask me.The Po boy's are pressed and the bread is excellent. The schooner fries are good and the lunch specials are very tasty. EAT HERE YOU WILL LOVE IT!!! I'm local and I have been eating here ever since I moved to the coast in 97.You can't go wrong.

It's nice to still see one of Biloxi's old restaurants still in business. The food continues to be great and the place is never empty of customers. That says a lot for the place. Their specialty crabmeat poboy is worth a try. You won't be disappointed.

This Classic Ole Time Diner been on the coast a very long time. It features counter and booth service, tin ceilings, black & white checkered floors. BE SURE to check out the photos on the walls that are of Biloxi from before 1900. Great southern Gulf Coast food. Great lunch: Seafood Gumbo and Potato Salad, a southern tradition. Great seafood...

I had the crab and cheese po boy dressed with the onion rings as a side. It was very good. They got good bread which is the key to a good po boy. the onion rings were cut thin like onion straws and very tasty.

A tour group of 40 just ate there. Not a bad review from the group. Well done!! Gumbo, poboys and crabcakes were all hits. Be sure to visit the beautiful church across the street.
