Most excellent.

Everything on the menu is wonderful, but the grouper smothered in the crawfish sauce is to die for. I also suggest that one starts off with a dozen oysters on the half shell.

This restaurant is hidden from view off the main street below the bridge and under some towering centuries old live oaks. There are some great places to have coastal seafood favorites in this area so you could ask what sets one apart from fare you get at other places? I always look for new variations on old culinary mainstays. One... More

Good southern gourmet meals and desserts. This place is hidden under the oak trees in Ocean Springs with a beautiful romantic seen of the bay and great service.

We visited again this weekend and it was great, beautiful sun set view, relaxed setting and waitress was very good, she made our martinis perfectly. Food was hot, and greats taste, grilled oysters were... More

Yes, yes, the place has a nice view and the oaks are impressive, but let's get to the thing all of us care about the most: the food. Well, first, the wait staff is excellent and always has been. This used to be my favorite restaurant on the Coast but before this past spring, I hadn't been since shortly after... More

Beautiful setting, gorgeous oak and sunset view from anywhere in the restaurant. Don't get in a hurry to eat but the food is beyond yummy and tons of it. Make reservations and go! Liked everything about this place. Will go again soon.

We were fortunate to have been seated by the window during the sunset, which is what this place seems to be known for as there were only two tables left! It was beautiful. We sipped on wine while we waited for our stuffed mushrooms, which took awhile, but when it arrived it was so worth the wait. Incredible flavor! We... More

The setting is great, and the food is fantastic. We both had fish dishes, and the fish was cooked perfectly and was plentiful. It is a bit pricey, but it is worth it. Try the crab cake appetizer.

Beautiful setting but a bit hard to find..Went in with a group of more than 20 on Saturday night and had excellent service. The place was packed when we left. Everyone in our group raved about their food - some said their steaks and seafood were the best they'd ever eaten! Waiter and waitress was exceptional ! They were a... More

Before mentioning the food, I do want to recommend that you try to get a seat near the windows. The view of the river added a wonderful setting for what turned out to be a very nice dinner. Oh, there were fish schooling and chasing bait fish in the river when we were there. Two very different dinners - my... More
