Beautiful view. The gumbo is the best! Good service and great food! A family restaurant with a lot of choices.

Been two different weekends, and the breakfadt was excellent both times. Friendly and laid back atmosphere, and good food at a descent price.

We stopped in for Sunday lunch. The service was slow but the staff was friendly. I was expecting great seafood because of where we were but was disappointed. The food was okay but WAY overpriced. Should have gone to Captain D's.

I keep trying to dine at this restaurant with hopes it has improved; but, that just is not happening. The place needs a good updating and cleaning. The salad is watery iceberg with liquidy blue cheese with no cheese. The gumbo was all rice and...More

We are in Biloxi visiting friends. They suggested we go to McElroy's for lunch since we are in Ocean Springs. I ordered the fried oysters and shrimp. I had a wait for french fries to come out. And she also forgot my coleslaw. The oysters...More
