We had the big reds and redfish, bisque and Orleans oysters. All excellent! Atmosphere nice and service good. The cinnamon roll bread pudding was not what I hoped. Too dry would highly recommend this place!

We visited 2 times during our 5 day vacation in Gulfport. The food and service both nights were top notch. The blackened fish and the Seafood Portabella are the best. Also the gumbo, salad and asparagus can't be topped. We both would have loved to try the whole menu.

There is always, always a long wait to be seated but it's usually spot on food. The food is consistently good. The best oysters hands down.

I was there for a late lunch before heading out of town and was not disappointed! I had the Shrimp Orleans and the Cajun Potatoes and they were both incredible but the shrimp was truly the best. Great for a nice, sit-down lunch or dinner and very close to the beach.

Great food... sometimes the wait can be longer than needed, but still worth the wait. If you have older people with you, the stairs can be a problem since there is no elevator at their Biloxi location or at least not one that I have seen.

We were in Gulfport for the day to spend on Ship Island. We had asked one of the ship workers where a good spot to eat was and he recommended this place. I couldn't agree more. The oysters were outstanding! I had a huge platter of shrimp which was possibly the best I've ever had. Very good service and excellent... More

We were traveling through and asked at the hotel for a good seafood restaurant. This was the recommended place. We are so glad that we took their advice! It was very busy on a Friday night, but we decided to wait anyway. When we did get a table, the service was very good. My salad came out right away. Our... More

I just moved to the area and wanted a good meal my wife had the oysters New Orleans style and I had the snapper both were fresh well seasoned and cooked to perfection. We sat at the bar and had a great time with my new friends William, Tyler and the happiest bartender ever Miesha (hope I spelled correctly)
