Had the oysters on the half shell. They were nice and fresh. My white fish catch of the day was grilled nicely in garlic butter but not enough garlic to notice. The fries were not hot. Overall pretty good meal.

Maybe this is just a staple of living on the Coast or just a reminder of how people on the Coast like bland and fried food. BUt it stays crowded during lunch with the who's who of geriatric residents of MS. The three times I was here I felt cheated by how much I was paying for subpar fried food.... More

Whole family went in on Po-boys. Three had shrimp, one crab; shrimp was better than the crab. Grilled oysters were great!

This place used to have the best seafood on the coast and was a family favorite. Post Katrina it is expensive and the portions are smaller. It was ok but not as good as I previously remember. My family drove several hours to eat here so we were disappointed. I have had relatives tell me the bread pudding is good.... More

I shared a fried seafood platter with my traveling friend, and it was OK - nothing to write home about. The view was spectacular, though, as the restaurant sits just across the highway from the Gulf. Service was very good.

This was one of my dad's favorites. We all would eat here on a Saturday night, and let me tell you, it gets packed, so go early. But the line does move fast and it's worth it. I had the seafood platter it is to die for! ! Everything is so fresh. Can't wait to go back. This restaurant used... More

In many excursions and visits to restaurants, we have found few to have as exceptional service says the White Cap - in Gulfport, Mississippi. The actual dinners that we had were very good - a shrimp Alfredo dish and a seafood gumbo, but Nikki, our waitress let us taste the crawfish bisque and bread pudding which were phenomenally delicious! Nikki's... More

WONDERFUL SEAFOOD! We had a group of 12 and we were seated very quickly! Service was fast and most of all it was delicious! Most everyone ordered something different, and everyone raved about their food!
