Very nice place. Love the décor, and great seafood. Service was fast and friendly. The price was very reasonable for what you get. If you sit by the windows upstairs, its a nice view but you'll have to climb the stairs; no elevator.

Ask folks for a recommendation here in Biloxi, and chances are this is the restaurant they'll point you to. Great menu, great flavor, excellent service, and a good atmosphere. This is definitely one of the best on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Absolutely, we are open normal hours on Easter Sunday, in fact we normally open the doors a little before 11 just to get folks in and seated if there's a line outside.

You can see the water from the right spot in either location, however in both locaations we are a couple blocks off of the Gulf, so the view of the water isn't the best.
