After having driven past this restaurant many times, my wife decided we needed to check it out. We were greeted promptly but that was the last "promptness" there. We placed our order for a fried shrimp po boy and a fried catfish po boy. It took forever for the food to arrive which is real hard to understand in a... More

1st time at this restaurant, we were greeted and seated immediately. We had put our food order in and waited, and waited, and waited.......over an hour. Hubby finally stopped the waitress (who was very nice and apologetic) and ask her what was taking so long for our order, apparently the cook just didn't make it.... After about another 15-20 minutes,... More

I had an hour to kill before my flight, hadn't eaten all day and did a quick TA search for local seafood. Shrimp Basket was first on the list and it was a great find. You are immediately greeted when you walk in with a friendly, "Good Afternoon!" I asked if I could sit at the bar and they said,... More

Three of us had the experience of dining here Saturday evening. The place was packed and parking was a challenge. We were seated fairly quickly, and a server quickly came and took our beverage and food order. The meals were a disappointment. The steamed shrimp were way over-cooked, the popcorn shrimp were under cooked, but the shrimp Po-boy basket and... More

The main reason we go is the food is great, we've eaten there several times and the fried shrimp Po' Boys are great. But, the second Tuesday of every month it's .47 oysters when you pay on average $16-$20 a dozen in other places you go nuts at that price. We're from Atlanta and we time our trips to Biloxi... More

They say if the parking lot is full, the food must be good. So the lot was full, but we got seated right away. And we had a group of officers also (more proof). The food and service was good. I loved the variety. Yes it is fast food, quick, nothing fancy. We will be back and it was very... More
