My son-in-law found this little gem in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Our family gathered for a wonderful meal this past Sunday - the catfish and shrimp are fried to perfection. The yams are served with butter and a sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon which was absolutely delicious. I had the Gunny's Combination, which a combination of friend shrimp and thin-fried catfish;...

The food and service was so good on our return trip through Ocean Springs the following day we stopped again and ate lunch or early dinner again. One comment was the breading was done exactly right.....not too much and not too little. This place is on my stop at when you travel I-10 through Mississippi. Exit 50 and turn south... More

This is by far the best fried catfish on the MS Gulf Coast. We have eaten at Aunt Jenny's quite often and would be considered "regulars". The food is always consistent, service is fast with courteous servers, and price is reasonable, The atmosphere is superb with views overlooking the water and sunsets are picturesque. This should be tried by all... More

The shrimp was wonderful and the amount of food that you received for the price was great especially since it was all you can eat. The atmosphere was nice and service was excellent.

Aunt Jenny's is great! They basically have fish, shrimp and chicken on the menu which is part of the reason it is so good because they don't spread them selves too thin. Kids 3 and under eat FREE which was a plus for me! Every meal is started with biscuits and cole slaw which is a plus in my book... More
