“A MUST TRY!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

This seafood place is one of those that is a "must try". Great seafood, great ambiance, and friendly servers...what more could you want?
On the north side of Interstate 10, this nothing special to look at place has been in business for 7 years, serving locals who knew of this hidden gem. Off the beaten path to the point you should have a GPS to help find, it is worth the time to drive to from hotels located on the beach. Now that they have been added to Trip Advisor, the word will spread, so the great food will have to be shared by the locals.
Both the exterior and interior are nothing special---the food is the attraction. Great Po-boys, seafood platters, and home made crab cakes. Had to try the bread pudding---don't miss it. The staff was super, treating us like old friends that happened to stop in.
Be sure to visit this Taranto's and not confuse it with another seafood place in Ocean Springs with almost the same name. The one in Ocean Springs is good---this one is better.
Minor complaint---the cole slaw should be made the night before, rather than when they open, so it will be cold.

“Great Seafood !!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Of all the places I have eaten catfish or shrimp, this was by far the best. Had the catfish platter and my daughter had the shrimp platter. Both were just great. Service was excellent also. Don't let the appearance of the place fool you or you will miss the seafood meal of a lifetime. Would be visiting again when in the area.

“YOU FOOLED ME AGAIN”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

This was a terrible experience. After reading to reviews we were excited to go to lunch here. At first we were sure we had the wrong restaurant. The shrimp was out of a freezer bag and the gumbo was too spicy and had enough salt to cure meat. The bath room is frightening. I have this one an average because the service was good but the food was poor and atmosphere is like a biker bar.

“I would drive back to Mississippi just to eat here again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

I have never had a better steak sandwich in my entire life. In addition to the friendly staff and fantastic down-home atmosphere (looks a little sketchy on the outside), everything we tasted was fantastic and more than fairly priced (it really was a steal).
Out of 10 days travelling from Savannah to Texas, this was our favorite place (and we are foodies who really research our culinary destinations).
