One of the best meals we've had in a LONG time. Quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Every bite of every part of the meal was to be savored. Rib eye was so very flavorful. Decadent chocolate mousse was one of best chocolate desserts we've ever had. Split for 2 easily. Pricey but worth it for a special dinner.

My first time to eat there and it was a wonderful treat. It had a menu that was similar to a creative New Orleans restaurant. The menu also reminded me of a John Curence restaurant in Oxford! It was nice to find a great restaurant for lunch on the way back from Destin.

Went to dinner for our anniversary. We were not disappointed. Had the Duck Rolls, Corn and Crab Bisque, and the Blackened Snapper. If that wasn't enough, we also had the chocolate decadence for dessert. Excellent meal. Absolutely no complaints. From the time we walked in till the time we left, we absolutely enjoyed everything. The waiter and manager went over... More

We had a party of 8 for dinner on Saturday evening 5/14 to celebrate an MBA college graduation. I wanted to go to the Purple Parrot because I had enjoyed it so much in the mid-1990s when I travelled to Hattiesburg on business several times. I had particularly enjoyed their fried green tomatoes (my first) and their ambiance (sophisticated, art-inspired,... More

What a lovely surprise this place was. The best of the best. The menu choices were all difficult to choose from. Unusual, but perfect, combinations. The fish was so amazingly fresh. The vegetables were so full of flavor. Really beautiful. I wish they would open a place like this in my home town. So great. The waitress was so sweet... More

We went in and ordered drinks she brought us the drinks no water. then we ordered our appetizer and they brought it to someone else's table and then didn't even confront us until 20 minutes later. so we left before we ordered our dinner. They probably had great food but the service wasn't even good enough to get to the... More

This is next door to crescent city and a little more upscale. The food is great and you will most certainly enjoy. Give it a try and it will be in your top 2.

Traveling through Mississippi and just looking for a quick lunch. Walked into the restaurant, and was pleasant greeted and shown to linen covered table. The food was charming and tasty. Service was chatty and pleasant.

I had high hopes from looking at its website (and chose a hotel to be near it) and I wasn't disappointed -- it was even better than I was hoping. Who expects a delightful foodie experience on an ugly highway in Hattiesburg MS? It's an ordinary-looking building in a strip mall complex on a busy, yucky highway. But the inside... More
