“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

What a delightful experience! We visited this restaurant last week, where we had oysters on the half shell, gumbo, and a shrimp and oyster po boy. The oysters and gumbo were delicious, and the po boy was one of the best we have ever had. The service was outstanding, and the restaurant is very nicely done. We were very pleased, and we will definitely return!

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

We had the blue crab cakes for an appetizer, fried shrimp and grilled mahi as entrees with key lime pie to finish off a wonderful dining experience. Drinks were $2 off during happy hour. Lynn provided outstanding service, Just a short walk from the Beau Rivage and the Hard Rock.

“grilled oysters”

The best grilled oysters on the coast! When in MS this is one of our favorite spots. The service is always good, and we enjoy taking friends and family here.

“Average seafood restaurant.”

My wife & I ate dinner & both had the parmesan, dill flounder and were not impressed with out meals. Our waiter was good. My gumbo side was less than average.
