Thanks for having us. We enjoyed the mason jar drinks. The food was awesome. Hospitality was good. The chicken salad was so good. But please make a salad instead of just lettuce. Pork chops were lip smacking food according to my husband. Smokey BBQ smell can be over whelming. And it was hotter inside than out. Not sure if I... More

Usually crowded around dinner time and has a odd closing time of about 8:45 pm. Drawback here is you smell like an oven when you leave. Steaks are good and usually cooked right. Fried mushrooms are good, but not as good as the Sandbar's in Biloxi. Place is dated and has a 1980s feel. Would certainly come back.

A rustic local restaurant. Friendly staff and a good choice of beers. All the entrees are grilled over wood fire. The 16 oz ribeye steak was done to perfection and baked potato was great.

Comfy, casual atmosphere with the friendliest staff and owner I have ever encounted in any restaurant in any state. This steak doesn't need one single thing. The homemade potato soup, salad dressings and yeast rolls are also awesome. Baked potato's are actually baked. Don't go to Biloxi or Ocean Springs without a visit to Cheryl's Place, you will not be... More

As a long time customer of Cheryls I was smart enough to have my son's rehersal meal booked as a private party. The steaks are cooked over a hot wood fire pit to your choice of degree and to perfection. I enjoy the Ribeye cooked Cajun Style and for over 10 years have not had a bad or average tasting... More

This is a very small, laid-back steak restaurant where the steaks are cooked over an indoor pit so it can get smoky inside. But the steaks are great so don't let that stop you from trying it. We had an appetizer of grilled shrimp and they were awesome!. Steak was cooked just as we ordered, and the baked potato and... More

As we were promptly seated upon our arrival we were greeted by at least 3 of the servers like we had just arrived home. We were quickly served drinks and the sweet tea was perfect. We ordered an appetizer of fried mushrooms and they were perfectly battered. I don't like the kind of battered mushrooms that are more batter than... More

We have eaten at Cheryl's several times and have never been disappointed. The steaks are awesome, try the Rib-eye chard and cooked medium.

This is a casual restaurant with a very special marinade recipe for all their meats. They serve beer, but you can bring your own bottle of wine. The main reason people love this place is the meat. If you love beef this place is for you. The chicken is also good.

Don't go here expecting a fancy dining experience. This is basically a diner that has upgraded food. The service was very fast and friendly. The food has very good. The steaks were just right. Definitely worth a visit.
