Fried pickles are really good. Catfish is ok, kinda thin sliced and fried very crispy, but overall good taste and service. The views in the place are worth the eat.

Food was great but after turning off Washington almost bottomed out the suspension on the little hatchback. What looks to be just puddles turned out to be deep potholes full of water.

The fare is of a decent quality provided at a reasonable price. Downhome decor, decent view, easy parking and good service make this a good chice and it's not far from casino row. The parking lot is tricky to enter when coming from the south so call for directions.

On the trip where my son and I came to see where he grew up, Aunt Jenny's had to be on the itenerary. This was the favorite restaurant that my wife, son, and I used to go to when we lived on the Coast. We were fortunate in that we lived on both sides of the Coast in our 11... More

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
