We stopped by and had a late lunch. I had the shrimp po boy with fried green tomatoes & my husband had a beef po boy. I was expecting more out of the food, more flavor. Our sweet waitress was super kind, but seemed distracted. Something just seemed off, maybe it was just an off moment. The prices were fair,... More

We got in car and asked where do you wanna go? Pizza, burgers, buffet? Catfish won the toss. Returned to get catfish dressed po-boy and gumbo. Yummy yummy yummy. Room and tables are clean. Food was quick to table and refills were timely. Great lunch menu. Pop in ... you will be happy you did. We will be back!

We wanted to try a place we'd never been before, so Lil'Ray's in Long Beach got our business. It's casual dining and easy to find. Fortunately for us the super nice drivers on Jeff Davis stopped for us to cross the street. Thanks! Lil' Ray's staff was welcoming and friendly. We were there on a quiet night, only ten or... More

The shrimp po'boy was awesome! The quality of the bread was evident and the plumpness of the shrimp let me know that it was ocean fresh! My wife (who isn't from South Mississippi) was blown away by the quality of the shrimp and I was reminded why the 1.5 hour drive from Hattiesburg was worth the drive for fresh seafood!

We have to take my mom here several often so she can get some raw oysters. It's not my favorite place because I don't like to sit at picnic tables and on benches, but the food is always good. We love the poboys and the bread pudding. Mom also raves about the gumbo.

First visit to Lil Rays and we were not disappointed. Excellent service, friendly atmosphere. Ordered shrimp PO boy with fried green tomatoes....OMG, delicious. Also we could not resist the bread pudding which was very delicious. Will definitely go there again on our next trip.

Lil Ray's has been on the Coast for more years than I remember. A great local place for a good meal. Excellent crab cakes.

I had a shrimp po boy and my wife had a ham po boy. Bread is excellent as well as all of the fixins. Had to stop myself from overeating. Fast friendly staff. Men's restroom needs to be repainted, floor tile is very unhygienic. Restroom lock is broken so LR has a sign showing a temporary fix.
