They had popcorn shrimp on a hard bun. Only a cheap restaurant has has popcorn shrimp on their poboy. I had fried shrimp which where small... More

Have recently eaten breakfast and lunch at the Mc Elroy's next to Hard a Rock. Absolutley fantastic views of the bay. Inside and outside seating. Had their Gritts and Shrimp for breakfast with a home made biscuit. From my pallet - best around the area. Had a shrimp salad and split a fish PO-boy with my wife. Both very enjoyable.

This was our 4th visit to this restaurant and each time the food and service has been excellent. Portion sizes are quite large; often too large for me if I've also ordered an appetizer. It is a wonderful restaurant for date night (we have spent much enjoyable time at the bar watching Sat. night football) and for families, but other... More

The view here is nice and the staff wonderful. We were expecting great seafood and a relaxing dinner. It was relaxing yet the food was just so -so. After eating at a couple of pretty bad places, we were ready for great and it just wasn't there. Also, they clear dishes with a cart and it was pretty stinky. They... More

We happened to be in Ocean Springs on a Monday and had a list of places we wanted to dine for dinner. After checking the area when we arrived we found out all of the restaurants we picked were closed on Monday. So back to Trip advisor for recommendations and we found we were only 2 miles from Mc Elroys... More

Visited for first time late June, 2014. Outstanding location on the bayou with dock large enough to accommodate large pleasure crafts. Outside deck with tables, lighted for outside use at night; mosquitoes can be an issue so check with front desk first. Bar separate from restaurant, but same menu available at bar. Family oriented, but not a place for unruly... More

We so enjoyed the dinner and the service was awesome....the most wonderful part of our seafood meal (besides knowing how fresh and locally caught it was) was the few minutes we spent on the dock out back at sunset feeding our leftover hushpuppies to the precious little gator.....AWW.....seriously, wonderful evening.

After spending a Wednesday night at a casino in Biloxi, we decided to have breakfast on our way out. Passed by this restaurant and saw the parking lot was full (on a Thursday morning). Decided it was worth trying. So glad we did. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast large and delicious at a great price. We continued... More

We were met at the door by friendly people and this was followed by the same type service. We were later than our usual supper time with 2 small children but they were very satisfied with things to color and a waiter who took time with them. Oh, and the fried shrimp was delicious! Recommend!

This was our first visit to Ocean Springs as we were on the way to visit family in Biloxi. We asked the folks at the Mississippi welcome center where to have lunch, one of them recommended McElroys and we gave it a try. We both ordered fried shrimp po' boys. The french fries and onion rings were above average, the... More
