Definitely under staffed, our waiter was running around like crazy, food was mediocre , pretty beat up place , seats torn up to the point where you can't even tell what color it used to be.

Try the oyster sampler platter with 12 oyster prepared 4 different ways. All were good and at a reasonable price. The fried shrimp were fresh and fried to perfection. I didn't think the seafood gumbo was up to par with the other dishes.

This place is number 1 in Biloxi for a reason. The food is excellent! We ate here because it was number 1, and that was a good choice. I had the fried seafood sampler, which had oysters, shrimp, grouper, and a crab cake. All were...More

This was the first top choice on Trip Advisor so of course we wanted to ask around about it from the locals. There was a Mardi Gras parade that had passed and so the fun was still around. The atmosphere in this place was like...More
