The Schooner has been around since Biloxi was founded, well maybe not that long but at least as long as I can remember. It has moved a couple times but the old flavor of eating a poboy with a Barq's root beer still remains. It is a small place with limited help so if your are in a hurry or... More

Give this one a try. No fancy building or view just good seafood where the locals were eating at a fair price. Very busy at noon but good service. I will go back. Had the noon seafood platter that waitress recommended and she did good.

My family went to eat here while on vacation in Biloxi, and we ordered a variety of dishes. Every single thing was delicious! The restaurant looked like a diner, and was very relaxed. Our waitress was super friendly and accommodating. We got Gumbo, Seafood Etoufee (my dad), Onion rings, French fries, various salads (my mom and sister), and a half-oyster-half-shrimp... More

They have really good thin cut deep fried onion rings with their own dipping sauce. That was the best part of the meal. We all had po-boys. Four po-boys, one order of onion rings and four barqs root beers was $65 (55 plus tip of 10). The shrimp po-boy was the best ... the oyster was okay and the crab... More

A good buddy of mine suggested a visit to the Biloxi Schooner while we were visiting the Coast. We dined with a total of 6 people for lunch (not opened for dinner). This cafe is a classic diner-style cafe with service at a counter or tables. They have a regular daily lunch special, and they are famous for their poboys.... More

Employees were friendly and service was prompt. The lettuce in the salad was not crisp. The fried shrimp were very good and the best part of the meal. The fried fish was not firm and the stuffed crab was cold in the center. After all the great reviews, we were expecting better.

I am a Gumbo critic and this place is "Thumbs-up". Seafood platters is Excellent and enough to be split with someone else - but throw a catfish in there for good measure! Lots of old Schooner photo's to let you relive some of Biloxi's rich history. Cool. It's laid back and comfortable and not to be missed if even for... More

Not very impressed. Service was so-so. Crab cake was cold in center and never saw waitress until plates were empty. ..except for uneaten crab cake. Took near 10 minutes for them to toss back on the grill. Place needs a good cleaning, including the table condiments. They all were nice though.

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
