Great food, great view. I love this place. So many choices on the menu BUT fried green tomatoes should be the first thing you ask for.

No, Aunt Jenny's doesn't have spotless restrooms (as one reviewer noted) but I didn't come here to... More

What a gem in Ocean Springs, Ms. All southern style eating. I have been going there since the 70's. You can get all you can eat Chicken or Catfish. The sides are served in buckets for all to share at your table. The Sweet Tators are to die for. Everything is good. Real Sweet Tea too. Has a little gift... More

We eat here about 15 years ago and had just a fantastic meal. This time after reading about it to my father and his girlfriend was there for years, we finally stopped and had dinner on Sunday night. When you walk inside the restaurant there's a old moldy smell that reach you, it's not very clean, the bathrooms were nasty.... More

We enjoyed a dinner for a group of 44 while in the area. My contact was Trey and he was great to work with during the reservation process and he was on site when we arrived. The food was great!
