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.
