We have eaten at Cheryl's several times and have never been disappointed. The steaks are awesome, try the Rib-eye chard and cooked medium.

This is a casual restaurant with a very special marinade recipe for all their meats. They serve beer, but you can bring your own bottle of wine. The main reason people love this place is the meat. If you love beef this place is for you. The chicken is also good.

Don't go here expecting a fancy dining experience. This is basically a diner that has upgraded food. The service was very fast and friendly. The food has very good. The steaks were just right. Definitely worth a visit.

As many times as I have eaten in Ocean Springs, I have never found anywhere to beat the steaks here.

We went here for dinner. Got there early, no problem getting seated in this small place. My he smell of 'open pitt' immediately overwhelmed me. It was so bad it had me breathing through my mouth the whole time there. Obviously very poor ventilation system. The streak was a bit on the thin side, but the flavor was very good.... More

This place is a small little restaurant on Rt. 90, where paper bags are your menus and Cheryl, the owner is by the fire pit hand carving, marinating, and grilling your steaks to your temperature with perfection. Every buttery bite melts in your mouth! Her homemade Peanut Butter pie is a whipped masterpiece of light and creamy heaven! This fairly... More

If you don't won't steak don't go. The place is very small and rustic, but the steaks are terrific. There's limited seating. You can watch your steak being cooked over the open fire. Servers are friendly and attentive. Great value!

Quaint little place. My wife had the steak burger and sweet potato fries, and enjoyed it. I had the steak, shrimp and chicken combo salad. Very plain. 2 quarter slices of tomato, 1small cucumber slice. No croutons, but they made up for it with lots of lettuce. The prices are a bit high. Not sure if we will go back,... More

This little hometown place is worth your visit. I live about 45 minutes away and past several steakhouses to get here. Its small, its personal and the steaks are seasoned to perfection. A great date night getaway. Nothing to fancy but definitely a nice place to eat.

Thank ToriR77
