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

You can't beat the pond fed catfish. Well all the food is excellent. ON NOV. 19 We will be passing through to going to Florida. I can't wait to feast on all the great food. 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

If you enjoy fried shrimp, catfish &a fried chicken then this definitely your restaurant. Add a few sides of coleslaw, baked sweet potato or fries and biscuits all for a reasonable price. The restaurant is an old southern home and the grounds around the home is is very picturesque.

Read reviews here when searching for a local restaurant during a visit to the Biloxi area for a golf tournament. Leslie is the most amazing server, even with one request after another from my elderly mom-in-law. Amazing biscuits and jelly, Jonah's Catch is highly recommended, and the chocolate bread pudding is simply, yep, amazing! Unique setting that was very cozy... More
