Off the Beaten Path but so worth it!

The best service and best seafood ever! Servers were very friendly and attentive. We order the crawfish platter and then 6 in po-boys. The crawfish was seasoned to perfection. So many times when you eat crawfish in a restaurant, they seem afraid to season it and get it spicy and like it should... read more

Stopped in for a cup of yummy seafood gumbo and a side of shrimp (10) both of which came with two pieces of "Texas" toast. For less than $10 I had a delicious and filling meal and was helped by a vet friendly staff.

Stayed in Biloxi for a few days and wanted some great seafood. Checked and found this was #1 on Trip Advisor and decided to try it after a drive to New Orleans. Cricket was our waitress and she was awesome. Highly recommend the gumbo, bisque, crawfish, and seafood platter. Reasonably priced and delicious. They were out of fresh oysters which... More

Delicious seafood cooked the way we eat it in Biloxi. Lots of good, tasty food. Shrimp, oysters, scallops, fish...it's all here. Nothing fancy, just good eats.

Yes, if you are looking for the best local shellfish, this is the place! A little out of the way, north of the interstate, but worth it! Spicy good, just the way we like it!

When we pulled up to this restaurant at lunch time, the parking lot looked like a pick up truck sales lot. Most of the customers were locals eating lunch there. And it was obvious why there were so many. The food and service was excellent. This is not a fancy restaurant - the napkins are a roll of paper towels... More

I was in town for a visit with my brother and told him I wanted some crawfish. Before I got the words out my mouth he said let's go to Taranto's. We drove up to this little place off the beaten path in what I thought was Gulfport, turns out it's on the western side of Biloxi in a community... More

Have heard about this place and finally went! Was not disappointed. Ordered the boiled crawfish platter, seasoned perfectly! Also sampled the special bisque, shrimp and crawfish, outstanding and took home a cup for my wife! Just a few minutes off I-10, a must stop! The poboys looked very good as well.
