Went with another couple visiting us from up north. I knew they serve great MS gulf shrimp and MS catfish. Not disappointed. The biscuits with honey and coleslaw by the quart started us off. Delicious fried shrimp and fish sealed the deal. Friends loved it too. Gotta try it, we'll go back, for sure.

It had been a while since we ate at Aunt Jenny's. It was just as good as we remembered. The fish was really good as were the sides. We had a very nice waitress and service was good. We always enjoy eating with a view of the water. Casual dress and dining. resonabliy priced.

This restaurant is located in a lovely old house overlooking the water. We arrived just in time for a gorgeous sunset. The food was delicious, I was even impressed with the shrimp creole. The menu was limited though, and they were out of gumbo.

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The restaurant has obviously been located at this location for a long time and is family run. The catfish and shrimp combination is very good and so is the catfish covered in shrimp creole. As an appetizer, the fried green tomatoes were also very good. They offered very good... More

The four of us ate dinner and had great bowl of Gumbo, Green Fried Tomatoes, Fried Chicken and a couple of plates of Catfish and Yams. No grease, in the catfish, very pleasant service and decor. We would recommend this and come back next time in town.

This place is a complete dive. When you walk in the door you step back in time. This place is in a old house with some old pictures from the 1800s. The food here is very good southern cooking with good catfish and fried chicken. Must stop here.

We go to Aunt Jenny's every time we come to Ocean Springs. They have all you can eat shrimp, chicken or fish along with fresh biscuits, coleslaw, and either baked potatoes, sweet potato or fries. They also have great fried okra.

The menu is small, catfish, shrimp and chicken for the most part. The catfish was very good as was the shrimp. Service was excellent and the food hot. I love any kind of seafood hot and this was right out of the deep fryer. Our waitress was young but very friendly and efficient. The place is older not fancy but... More
