We go to this restaurant everytime we visit Biloxi. Everything on the menu is outstanding! Especially the oysters. Prices are very reasonable. you will want to get there early for dinner or you could be waiting 1+ hours for a table.

The food is great, the service is good! Oysters are the best, especially the Orleans. Nice atmosphere for a date or family dinner.

We had great service! April was wonderful! AMAZING filet and crispy delicious fries and okra! My husband got the Louis Armstrong sushi and loved it! Great atmosphere! You forget you're in a casino! I highly recommend this place!

Sit at the bar and watch as they place your oysters on the grill and then magically turn them into a flaming tower of gulf Coast deliciousness. It is a great place to sit with friends and enjoy a dozen or two.

Charbroiled oysters and crab claws were amazing. Service was very professional!! The 10 Minute wait was well worth it! I will definitely go back next time I visyt Biloxi/Gulfport area.......

Response from Kevin F | Property representative |
Absolutely, we are open normal hours on Easter Sunday, in fact we normally open the doors a little before 11 just to get folks in and seated if there's a line outside.
Are there views of the water at either location?

You can see the water from the right spot in either location, however in both locaations we are a couple blocks off of the Gulf, so the view of the water isn't the best.
