We've eaten here many times over the years, with both the service and the food having its ups and downs. Lately however, we've been pleased with the consistent quality of both the meal and our waitstaff. After dining as a couple on Sunday, we returned with extended family during the week. All parties were complimentary of their platters. My favorite... More

In an old house on the intercoastal waterway. Not fancy but nice views, good food and reasonable prices. I had the Catfish Anthony which is fried catfish filets over rice topped with crawfish sauce. Wife had fried catfish filets and shrimp. Came with side, coleslaw and warm biscuits. Food was good and service was also good.

Aunt Jenny's in Ocean Springs is right across the Back Bay Bridge just a few minutes from the Strip in Biloxi. It over looks the beautiful Back Bay and is located in an old home with big, no, huge oak tress surrounding it. It is a 'homestyle' restaurant with a simple memu and is VERY reasonably priced. This IS the... More

Don't miss this outstanding restaurant hidden in the trees on the shore of back bay. Not hard to find off I-10, the atmosphere is pleasant and the service is excellent! The catfish and shrimp are outstanding, but the real menu treat is the bread pudding! We will definitely return to Aunt Jenny's when we visit the Biloxi area in the... More

On the water and southern food, catfish, hush puppies, spicey shrimp and sweet potatoes for dinner. Food was ok, it was a bit pricey for the food, not alot of food on the plate. Don't think I would go there again.

Wow! The Catfish is great! However, they fry the chicken in the same oil or grease and it tastes just like the catfish. That's a shame! Our server was a real B.S. Artist, this guy needed his own stand-up comedy show!

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 staff was supper nice ( even posing in family pics with us). The kids loved the old fashion games and also the penny... More

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
