So glad we took a local's recommendation on this one.

Just by coincidence, we met a man and his son as they left the wharf area in Biloxi, and were talking about good places to eat. He suggested, if we truly wanted a great meal, to try this place over in Ocean Springs. Next day, we did. If we had just been driving by, we probably wouldn't have... read more

This was our first restaurant experience in Ocean Springs. They don't serve alcohol but apparently will open your own wine if you bring. We will be doing that next time. The Lebanese iced tea is amazing; I could drink my weight in it! The ahi tuna appetizer was wonderful as were the entrees. I hope future visits are as nice... More

First time to eat there, may be the last. The ambiance was nice, even "classy". The service was mediocre and so was the food. The saving grace, the crab cakes. Awesome! Still, way too pricy. May go back to try breakfast, or not. Disappointed!

We are local lifelong residents of the area, this was for years one of our "go to spots", but we have taken it off the list. First, the owner struggles to retain good help, the turnover is staff is visible, and we often see the better ones at other places. We have 3 poor experiences in a row, the first... More

I went here for brunch with a group of friends. I am allergic to gluten and soy and when asking our waiter about the menu, he was clueless what gluten is. Assumed it was egg yolks. I spoke to the manager and she thought it was dairy. I asked for a substitution for the toast and grits and she flat... More

First, the rice pilaf is the best I've ever had and the only reason for 3 stars over none. The beans were also very good. The fish was smothered in too much of the sauce and all I could taste was the heavy lemon flavor in the sauce. Makes you wonder what quality of fish they wanted to cover up.... More

I have never been disappointed when I eat here. Like to go there when we have a special occasion to celebrate. The food is a little pricy but is well worth it. They do not serve alcohol but will uncork your wine you bring with you.

Reading the other reviews, I swear we ate at a different place! Only one reviewer talked about prices - huh? Steaks were $50-$60! Seafood was - outrageous! So I ordered the seafood scampi - $31. Heart attack on a plate - good if you like cream and butter. Very little fish. My wife and son had shwarma - good but... More

All superb and really great service. It's the first place we will go when my dear friend returns next... More

First off I had to ask for clean utensils and my wife napkin was dirty. My omelet was dry and full of onions little other ingredients. Service was OK but having food allergies the staff had no clue about the food they were serving. Pancakes were light and fluffy. The manager seems put out when we asked questions.
