“Delightful!”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Natives of the coast, we return a couple times a year to see relatives and eat seafood. McElroy's has been one of our favorites for years, but this location was lost to Katrina. We continued to eat at the location in Ocean Springs but it was never quite the same.

The old McElroy's is back, and boy is it good! This trip we ate there twice and enjoyed both meals. The crab claw appetizer was wonderful with fat claws fried just right. And not a restaurant on the coast can equal McElroy's gumbo which we both enjoyed. We topped it off with peel and eat shrimp which were seasoned just right and cooled to just the right temperature to make for easy peeling.

The service was superb. I wish I could remember our servers names, but they both were very attentive without being hovering.

Prices were comparable or a little less than most quality seafood restaurants on the coast.

We shall return as soon as we get back to MS.

“Price vs. quality and service was over rated.”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

My husband and I dined at McElroy's on 13 Jan 13. We ordered drinks, and that's where it all started. My husband asked for a martini and was asked what was in it; however, the waitress said we have a book and we can try to make one for you. My husband said to just get him a Bacardi and coke. As we waited for our drinks and food, crackers (wrapped) with two large paper containers, which contained butter, was put in front of us. Our salads arrived shortly after with the packaged salad dressing on top of the salads. My order was undecioked and my husbands fish was seared to the bottom of the pan it was served on. We were home on emergency leave and wanted one good seafood experience before returning to our Gov. Tour of duty - this was mistake. At $20 per plate we expected better service, and to receive condiments that are not in packages or paper containers.

“Discovered Breakfast at McElroy's”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

We were seated at a table by a window ---- wonderful view! We ordered blueberry pancakes, eggs, bacon, and beignets. Great food and great service. Lots of locals eating there. Very homey. Saw ducks and dolphins (nice surprise!) swimming around the boat dock and watched fishing boats leave the harbor. We'll be back!

We refuse to eat at Mcelroy's in Ocean Springs, don't like the food nor the service, but the originally one in Biloxi should be on your list to try.
This time we had breakfast, pancakes egss biscuits and beignets

“Good food and great view”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Our first night on vacation we ate here. We got a table outside since it was pretty warm for December. Our food was great, definitely try the shrimp and grits. While we were eating we were able to watch the Christmas Boat Parade go by. We will definitely be back!
