This place is a small place, off the main drag, and it appeared to have more locals than the regular tourists spots. We enjoyed the steamer pots, which were excellently done, and reasonable priced. The seasoning was just a bit spicy, very nice, I thought, but it meant that my wife wasn't able to eat the corn or potatoes, which... More

My wife and I were looking for a place to grab some lunch and this hole in the wall was perfect. The service was fast and friendly, the food was quick and delicious and the price for the portion size was awesome. I had the catfish and my wife had the shrimp, both were yummy. I look forward to stopping... More

Read great reviews on this place while searching for seafood in Biloxi. It did not disappoint. Very crowded with locals which is always a good sign. Most tables filled and others were coming in to get their food to go. The shrimp and the catfish basket were excellent. Too much food for us to finish. Wish we would have ordered... More

Want some awesome food this place is a must. It is off the beaten path. More like a local treasure. Will be going back when back in town.

This place is pretty good. We eat here every now in then. Grilled shrimp salads are good, decent hamburger, po boys are a lot of bread, gumbo is good. A couple months ago we had some crawfish there & it tasted like they boil them then reboil them (if they don't sell) they stick it back in the hot water... More

We stopped in on our Gulf Coast drive last week. The food was wonderful. Two of our kids enjoyed the fried shrimp (the other two stuck to chicken, which was great also). I had the fried catfish Po'Boy, and my husband tried the crawfish - fried and boiled. From the outside, the place looks questionable. But it is lively on... More

We've been here hundreds of times, but recently had friends in from outta town. They asked..."Is it still possible to get crawfish this late in the season???" I made one phone call & y'alls answer was..."YES"!!! Our waitress explained that it happens virtually overnite..."1 day we've got um & next we DON'T" Despite being the tail-end(pun intended)of season, the mudbugs... More

My mother and I visited Taranto's Crawfish two days ago on our way back home from Louisiana. After having been there just once, I cannot wait until I return to the Mississippi coast so I can go there again. I almost think that I would go to Mississippi again for no other reason to eat at this restaurant. To begin... More

We got some poboys to go. My shrimp poboy still had the black stuff in it. I only took one bite because I was grossed out.

I was visiting this weekend looking for great Mississippi catfish. This is the place. A little off the beaten path, but worth the effort. We asked for catfish extra crispy, it was perfect. Fries were hot and really good. Try the fried pickles. They are the best I've ever had. Not only was the food 5 star, it was served... More
