My husband and I went with friends because we had not been there in a very long time. I was surprised at how much the food had gone up in price. But the quality was still there. I had the red snapper and it was amazing as it always has been. I guess they have to keep up with rising... More

The oysters were large, fresh and inexpensive. The service was beyond friendly. Any seat in the house offers good views of the Bayou. They have excellent daily specials.

Causal environment with average food. The restaurant is always busy so I'm not sure if it's just us! It was nice not to have to dress up after work but I'm not sure if we will go back.

What a amazing view and friendly atmosphere. Came for my grandmother's 80th and they even gave my grandmother a "birthday pearl" freshly shucked. They were so accommodating for a party of 22. The food was so yummy and a definite local feel.

Great atmosphere with awesome views of the bayou. The food is of the best quality. The staff is friendly and welcoming. I felt like I knew them my entire life. If you visit Ocean Springs this is a must.

I enjoyed the breakfast menu..The pancakes are plate size, the oatmeal is consistantly good but the best value is the "Lawyer's Breakfast". YOu get one egg done your way, chunky hashbrowns with or without onions and a very good biscuit. I like mine toasted.

As a former restaurant owner/operator, customer service and pricing were key. The McElroy's brand is old Ocean Springs/Biloxi, Ms. name. The view is great, easy to get to, but very overpriced for the area, and target market. My wife and I ate here for my birthday, and I ordered the shrimp platter. What I recieved was not what was pictured,... More

We had dinners of fried shrimp and shrimp and grits. The fried shrimp were not great, but the wife loved the shrimp and grits. She loved to sauce, but the grits were caked together and oddly like a sticky cake. The server was amazing and friendly.

I use to love eating at the McElroy's on the beach. I thought the food has to be the same, but it wasn't that good. The service was slow.

We have visited here many times. Our lunch today was horrible. My mother ordered the stuffed broiled flounder. It had a very strange taste (very fishy) and a rather unappetizing smell. My daughter ordered the hamburger steak medium well and came out medium raw. They only had one potato left so mom got that. I was given soggy fried okra.... More
