My wife and I were welcomed in and given a table on a busy Saturday night that was also the eve of the start of Cruising week. The ambiance was delightful. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The grilled oysters were a great intro
to my surf and turf which was a filet and crab cakes. Very enjoyable.

We went here while staying in Biloxi. As we already had dinner plans, we ordered only appetizers. Oysters on the holf shell, the red shrimp sliders and the fried green tomatoes with crab cakes. The food was extraordinary. The waiter was friendly and helpful. if we travel to this area again we plan to enjoy a full meal. Highly recommend.

We chose to eat here because it offered vegetarian options as well as seafood. Shrimp and crab dip was pretty good. Seafood stuffed portobellos were interesting although smashed rather flat, which was unexpected and odd. Three on a plate, which was too much of this particular dish for one person—they may be better for sharing as an appetizer. Teen enjoyed the seafood pasta. The crawfish in it was tasty.

The sides were a bit disappointing. Asparagus was a bit undercooked and Gorgonzola sauce looked unappetizing. Boiled new potatoes were dry and tasted like they were frozen (out of a bag) and then sprinkled with cheap seasoning. Chocolate obsession dessert was quite good. Not too sweet.

Service was attentive, and dining room was visually interesting. Bathroom could have been cleaner.

Food, atmosphere, and service was great! We had a party of 12 and they accommodated us to a T! Food was brought out in a timely manner and was excellent! Will go back when in town again.

We are here upon recommendations. Our server was great, friendly and informative. The food was some of the best seafood I have had. I got the big reds, jumbo shrimp that taste like lobster. The sweet potato creme brulee could easily be your dessert. The ambiance was wonderful. I will be back!i
