I didn't quite get the hype. It seems to be recommended by locals etc but I just didn't like it that much at all. We had a large group and were accommodated very well but we had also made reservations so they were prepared for us. The view from the dining area we were in was absolutely beautiful! We were...

Nice restaurant in an old house with dining area overlooking ancient live oak trees and back bay near Ocean Springs. Before even ordering, guests are offered fresh baked biscuits with butter and syrup and a crock of delicious homemade coleslaw. Both items are replenished at request. Our group had the fried chicken, fried fish and fried shrimp which were all... More

We both had the catfish - my husband had the all you can eat & he ate lots! The catfish is nicely seasoned and very delicious - we loved our meal. The meal comes with your choice of potato (fries or sweet potato) and colossal and biscuits. It's very reasonable too - less than $15 even for the all you... More

I had lunch here my first day in Biloxi. Its pn the river and surrounded by some of the biggest oldest oaks you have ever seen. The house itself is full of history, and decorated as such. Very quaint, absolutely adorable. Now for the food, it was good, I had the catfish and shrimp. The shrimp was a little spicy... More

When we were recommended to eat here, I thought it would be more "Aunt Jenny's" and less fast food feel. Pros: Great views approaching and from dining area. Décor is simple and fun; sort of cabin or log cabin feel. Cons: Service was fair and disinterested. Food was fast food deep fried-picnic. Fried Catfish, shrimp and/or chicken; cold slaw; fries;...
