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

The service was excellent and the seafood was fresh, with the exception of the shrimp. Loved the stuffed crab event though it was not in a crab shell, but a foil wrapper.

The shrimp are DELICIOUS! McElroys are conveniently located at different locations around Biloxi. We had a very late lunch/early dinner. Food was a bit pricey. Would recommend.

This was the our first seafood in the gulf after our 1300 mile trip from New Jersey and the food was ok. We were expecting so much more. The staff was very nice and the view was great!

A hometown seafood restaurant overlooking the bay. Service is excellent. Our food came out quickly just as ordered. They serve locally harvested seafood at reasonable prices. Family friendly.

Ate breakfast on the deck, facing the water. Had a tasty meal at a good price, and the waitress was super. Great way to start the day!

McElroy's Seafood Restaurant in Ocean Springs offers visitors a truly spectacular view across Old Fort Bayou, especially near sunset. Unfortunately the restaurant's cuisine does not live up to the lofty standards promised by that breath-taking view... We had fried red snapper topped with a crawfish sauce, a baked potato and a small chef's salad. One of the priciest items on... More

In a previous visit I was blown away by their high prices for lunch and dinner. Noticing their breakfast prices seemed reasonable I decided to return and I'm so glad I did. I'm not one to try different things, but after trying shrimp and grits at other restaurants and enjoyed them I decided to give theirs a try. The price... More

Born and bred on the gulf coast, I'm reluctant to direct out of town friends to savor the magnificent views the restaurant offers while suffering through mediocre, tasteless food. Tiny fried shrimp pale in comparison to those you'll find at Mary Mahoney's.
