This is the 2nd time we have eaten here when visiting Biloxi. The Gumbo is very good. Both meals were also good. I had the seafood sampler and my husband had the Reds. I would recommend the short walk when staying at either the Hard Rock or Beau Rivage for a nice dinner.

Service was good, mixed reviews on food - mom's fried shrimp dinner was the favorite, grilled oysters a huge disappoint as well as crab cakes. We will probably not return.

I followed the reviews and gave this place a shot. Reviews were accurate. The gumbo was on point, the oyster sampler was excellent and the asparagus w/Gorgonzola butter...omg!!!! I think that the asparagus changed my life. So, so good!

Recommended by friend and did not disappoint. Food and service was excellent. By all means recommend the fried green tomatoes & crab cakes along with grouper topped with lump crabmeat over spinach. Will be a regular when passing through Gulfport & Biloxi.
