The shrimp po-boy was overflowing with shrimp. Server Kevin was very friendly. Scallops were ok but not great. They were very easy to work with a couple of requests we made. We went for supper and the prices are $10-25. Lunch specials are about $10.

McElroys on the Bayou for breakfast was great. Upon entering, we were greeted by everyone we passed with a warm "Good Morning". Very friendly waitress made us feel good with her witty conversation. All the food was excellent. My recommendation is to try the pancakes. They are made from scratch and the best I ever had. Want to go back... More

We have eaten here several times. Each time we do, we say we aren't coming back. But we wind up in the area and hungry. The service was slow, it took an hour to order and receive our meal after being seated. The food was not the quality you would expect from a Gulf Coast Seafood Restaurant. The Gumbo was... More

I first tried McElroy's on a golfing trip about a year ago. Since then, I have eaten breakfast here every time I have traveled to the Biloxi area for any reason. Breakfast is always delicious and I am usually able to get in when it is not overly crowded. The view of the bayou and Gulf Hills across the river... More

Stopped in for a dinner with a wedding party of thirty or so people. Seriously the worst idea, EVER. First my husband ordered a beer - which was hotter than room temperature. When he asked for a glass of ice, he was brought an empty glass that was slightly warmer than room temperature. Second it took an hour and a... More

A great seafood place I've always heard about it so the other night we decided to go and try it and let me tell you we loved it the food was amazing and I'll definitely be back for more chargrilled oysters. I only wish the service was faster especially when there was only a few occupied tables.

Thank Jeremy P
