This is my go to place for the type of food that says "Gulf Coast Cuisine." It's also the place that I recommend to any of my friends from out of town who come visit Biloxi. Wait staff is always great, the bar is good for some drinks while you wait for a table, which can be up to an... More

The seafood was fantastic! I wish I had more room to try everything on the menu. A little pricy but, the service was great and I would definitely go back.

We were seated promptly. Our server acknowledged us immediately. Appetizer came out in perfect time and the entree followed in perfect time.

The only bad place about this restaurant is that it is so doggone good we always have to come back here when visiting Biloxi, making it very hard to try some of the other class beaneries in this town. Tonight I had the Shrimp Orleans and the Vudoo Shrimp meal. These are both to-die-for and are only a small part... More

We had read about royal red shrimp but the ones we ate at other places didn't wow us. Thank goodness we came here because oh boy were these amazing. They had a hint of spiciness on the shell but the meat tasted succulent like lobster. And they were huge! Even the clarified butter was perfect. We accompanied the shrimp with... More

I stopped in as I spent the night in Biloxi and was pretty disappointed with this place. First off they tried really hard to sit me in the bar - open kitchen in the back just seemed more annoying than fun to watch. So I sat upstairs and my waiter acted like he wanted to be anywhere else but waiting... More

Great seafood. Tried raw oysters and grilled. Very tasty. Lobster crab corn chowder was very good. My husband and I both had seafood sampler with flounder, shrimp oysters crab cake and jalapeño hush puppies. Flounder was a but strong but everything was well cooked. Two more sides came with meal but who could eat them!

Poor man's lobster for sure---Sweet, deep bottom shrimp- served with drawn butter. In a word phenomenal. ... No need to take a taxi- it's a good stretch of the legs from the main door of the Hard Rock casino. Cross the street at the light and stay on the left side. Half Shell will come to you! You will Not... More
