You have to know what to order

I've eaten here many times over the years. I've tried their filet and NY strip several times and the quality of the cut can vary widely. It took a while to figure out, but my experience is that the large ribeye is the only consistently good steak available here. However, it is VERY good... read more

Best ribeye steak we've eaten in a long time. Excellent service too. "I'll be back", to quote Arnold.

A friend of ours recommended this steak place and we were not disappointed. It is a small place and our party of 6 had to wait to be seated, but the wait staff and food are excellant. Prices were reasonalble. This is not a "fine dining" experiance but just really good food.

My wife and I decided to eat here for a date night. I had read some reviews, and the majority were good... Well, I have to disagree. The wait staff was friendly, but seemed overworked. We both ordered steaks- mine with vegetables and soup, hers with baked potato and soup. The soup was plain, nothing good or bad about it,... More

I went to high school in beautiful Ocean Springs, and one of the best kept secrets was Troy's Open Pit Steak House. A little joint opened by a local whose parents had multiple properties. Upon his passing, it became Cheryl's and I must say that many years in between visits has not diminished the quality of the food served at... More

Not so great. Not so bad...just so-so. It's a small place and looks like the small town eatery it is. The theme is family rustic (the menu is printed with a marker on a paper bag...that might tell you everything you need to know if you're expecting a fine dining steak house)...reminds me of most every roadside diner I've hit...

Some of the best steaks that I have ever had. The steaks could have been cut with a butter knife. Great smoked meet taste. We also had some mushroom appetizers and some potato soup. Key lime pie for desert. Wow

This place was recommend to us by a local fishing Capt. and it was the best steak I've ever eaten. I had the T Bone and it was cooked to perfection. The Steak could be cut with a fork and had the best taste of any I have ever eaten. Cooked on a pit with pecan wood the taste was... More

Our steaks were great. It's a relaxed, rustic place where you can come as you are. Good food and good service.
