The service was fantastic, with a very friendly waitress who prioritized our table's orders before a large party that was seated just before us. We started with the house bread with pepperjack cheese, which proved sinfully delicious. The two other diners had fried catfish and a seafood platter, which were both hits. I had boiled shrimp, which were well-seasoned but... More

We had a beautiful view of the bayou while we ate breakfast. Our server was attentive and the breakfast was very good. Come hungry because they serve you a lot of food :)

Nice big menu. Great for Breakfast Lunch and Dinner. On the WAter. The one in Ocean Springs is the second on the coast. Original on Biloxi Beach and rebuilt after Hurricane Katrina. Both are identical in food and service. One Beach front the other Bayou front.

They have a very good variety of fresh seafood. Some of the best shrimp you can get anywhere. Good views of the water. Enjoy every visit

Nice restaurant appearance. Waitress very nice and helpful. The food was a disappointment. I had the broiled flounder and it was overcooked and dry. My friend had the shrimp and grits and said the flavor wasn't very good. I did not try her dish. We had the brownie with ice cream for dessert - the brownie was overcooked similar to... More

I ate lunch at McElroy's with a large group and loved the view, especially when I went outside on the deck. (It was too cold to want to sit out there, but several of us strolled out after we finished eating.) As for the restaurant itself, my first impression when walking in the door was negative because of the strong... More

I had the popcorn shrimp and was not impressed at all! Whatever they were breaded in was not tasty, I left most of them on my plate. If I ever go back, I will try the catfish, as I don't care for any other seafood. I was with a group and I think most everybody else was pleased with there... More

The way seafood was before the casinos. Delicious. Inexpensive. Local. This is a spacious mid range affordable family restaurant. Everyone is always friendly and parking is easy. This is a wonderful place for real coast seafood!!
