Best catfish on the coast, friendly and helpful staff. We always choose Aunt Jenny's for catfish fix.

First, while Trey seemed to be the only guy working, his service was fantastic. Seriously, change the name to Uncle Trey's because he did it all. Second, the fried chicken and baked sweet potato was amazing. On this same trip we ate at Paula Deen's restaurant where I also are fried chicken by recommendation. Aunt Jenny (Uncle Trey) wins no...

Visiting from SoCal, I go to Aunt Jenny's when I visit my brother who lives in Slidell, LA. Fried green tomatoes, pickles and okra? Not what I have easy access to so I enjoy it. The location and view are what I like best, and that my brother and his friends like it so much is the major draw. Not... More

Aunt Jenny's is very pricy. The food is only average tasting, not that great. The view is very nice.

Okay, visited Aunt Jenny’s in July 2016. Never again will I darken the door of this establishment. This is the second time that we have visited this establishment and had problems. First of all it took the serve staff 20 minutes to get to our table. Then it took another 25-30 minutes for the food to come out. Two of... More

I was first introduced to Aunt Jenny's in the late 80's. It has been my favorite place to go. Living in the heart of Hollywood, I have wonderful restaurants around me. NONE can compare to Aunt Jenny's. Matter of fact so good I am going to see if they can host a 100th birthday party for my family from CA... More

My husband was in the Air Force at Keesler Air Force Base. We would visit Aunt Jenny's just about every friday night when the work... More

Just FYI, I love me some Aunt Jennys. But I haven't tried a meal to go before. And I won't ever again. The price, $15.75. The quantity and quality were terrible. No other way to describe it. No effort at all. The fish, even the shrimp,barely edible. The hush puppy, only 1, hard as a rock. Ten minutes to home.... More

It was my first time. Pass it all the time, it's in such a beautiful area. They have the most delicious food. I had fish and shrimp and it was so yummy. You must try it.

Travelling to Biloxi on Interstate 10 from the east. Get off at the second Ocean Springs exit (exit before Biloxi exit) and take a left toward the coast. After a couple of miles you will cross a bridge over a bayou. Immediately on the other side of the bridge you will find Aunt Jenny's. Aunt Jenny's is a local treasure... More
