1. Place - if you're looking for fine dining look elsewhere. This is a mom and pops place that has awesome food and very good servers. What they lack in aesthetics they more than make up with their good and service. Btw- you can't eat aesthetics so always aim for good food. 2. Price is fair 3. Server - awesome... More

Been there twice now for lunch and very pleased both times. Great lil place to stop into when traveling through Mississippi, not far off I-10. Can't beat a lunch of gumbo, small shrimp poboy, tea and tax for 8.95!

Not much on atmosphere but really good seafood. Some of the best gumbo I've ever had. Had a little trouble finding it, but definitely worth the trip.

We stopped and ate at Taranto and Son Seafood on Tuesday, 19 August 2014 on our way to the casinos. We picked Taranto primarily from the reviews on TripAdvisor and they are correct. It is not fine dining by any means, it is a local place, call it a dive if you want, but it is excellent. It was closed... More

Well worth the stop! Large shrimp and oysters on their poor boys. Crisp onion rings. Great service! The quality and tasty food will keep this establishment doing well for years to come.

What a great find. It is not the the beaten path but get off the interstate and find it. Waitress was a lot of fun, answered our questions and also gave us another scenic way back to the interstate. And the food was yummy. This place is a gem. Nothing fancy outside or in but the food is why locals... More

I'm a local on the coast, and this is my favorite place to eat. You can't get seafood like this anywhere else. No matter where i've eaten, it never stacks up to my Taranto's!! Employees are just fabulous as well. Such a great environment.
