Really nice restaurant, serving very good seafood. The place was very busy, so they must be doing something correctly :)

“Fantastic!”

So great! Love the Orleans Oysters! The bartender there is great! He is the best at his job I've ever seen. It gets busy, so get there early!

Service was outstanding. Food was fresh and delicious, and the atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable. Definitely visiting again next time we're in town.

“One of the best finds in awhile!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

An impromptu motorcycle ride to Biloxi had me checking the trust tripadvisor app for a place to dine. Mother's Day to boot.
We readily found the restaurant and even though we had a party of 5 at the peak of lunchtime we were seated quickly.
The food was amazing. Didnt find a bad dish-from the charbroiled oysters and Voodoo shrimp for appetizers to lunch that included a hamburger, crab topped flounder, seafood pasta and seafood pot pie. Sides included cajun potatoes (boiled in crab boil then fried and topped with parmesan), grilled asparagus and shrimp and grits. We ended with cinamon roll bread pudding and bananas foster cheesecake. There was nothing that was not amazing to eat. No one had a single complaint. And reasonable prices...we will be back!
