Description: The after Katrina renovation of the Gulfport Historical District is an architectural gem. This restaurant is located in one of its beautiful old buildings, a prior bank, and the inside is the typical modern conversion: exposed bricks, high ceilings, large windows, smart decor and stylist tableware. The atmosphere is relaxed, spiffy, casual. The menu is extensive (beef/seafood) and interesting. As newcomers, we ordered the Kobe burger w/fries ($12) and the Cajun Pasta Supreme w/salad ($15). Good food, great value, but what makes this place outstanding is the dedicated attention to detail - delicious hot bread, piping hot steak fries right from the fryer, a small salad with impecable presentation and walnuts and smoked Gouda to boot... Grand. And the service - a courteous, professional young waiter who anticipated our desires (good staff has this ability) and fulfilled them effective and expeditiously. Truly endearing. Places like this make our escapades from New Orleans to the Gulf beaches a true joy. Of course, we'll return

“Great ambiance & even better food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

After researching restaurants in the area, we decided to go here. The decor and feel of the place was the perfect combination of upscale comfort. The food was delicious. I had the shrimp and grits appetizer and blackened catfish, while my boyfriend had the French onion soup and Cajun pasta. All of dishes were cooked to perfection! The portions were huge. Our waitress was pleasant and the food came out fairly quickly. The only thing that wasn't top notch was the hostess. She wasn't very welcoming and may have just been having a bad day. But that aside, I highly recommend this restaurant and will return if I am in this area.

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We were looking for a spot on our last night of our trip. We wanted something a bit special but not fine dining. This place was perfect. The steaks were great and cooked perfectly. The shrimp and grits were amazing. The grits were prepared as grits cakes and the texture with the shrimp was perfect. The apps were amazing also. The sweet potato bread pudding was a sinful finish to a great meal. The drinks came a bit slow and the beer selection was a bit skimpy but we were here for the food and it was excellent. The atmosphere was great for families or adult parties. a beautiful restoration.

“First time to eat here, good experience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We had a reservation for a large group of family members that included six children ages 18 months to 8 years. We were seated promptly with no waiting. Our waiter Chase was attentive to our needs and made sure that the children received their meals early. Comments were positive from everyone in our group.

“Best Eats on the Mississippi Gulf Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We ate at this place recently with another couple. Everyone ordered something different and we all agreed this was one of the best meals we have had on the coast. The appetizer Chargrilled Steak Tapas was superb. The Grilled Pork Chops were juicy and cooked to perfection. The Grilled Seasoned Catfish met my expectations. The Flounder Ponchartrain was topped with grilled shrimp, crabmeat and mushroom in a wonderful sauce. The steak was so tender with a delicious chargrill flavor. Great atmosphere, the portions were large, the sides were delightful, the service was excellent and the prices were reasonable. We had a friendly waitress that saw to our every need. Really, really like this place!
