Glad to see this place finally closed. Jocelyn was the most surly restaurant owner I have ever met. Why so many people in Ocean Springs kept her restaurant filled up is beyond me. The food was no better than roadside diner fare and fairly pricey.

Perhaps last time to dine here because Jocelyn's will be closing at end of year. Still best crab stuffing in the coast, had it with redfish, wife had it with squash. Our guest had chicken livers. Also enjoyed fresh salad and tasty cobbler. Really delightful...More

Had an excellent meal at Jocelyn's on Jan. 19, 2013. Jocelyn was gracious as always, and the seafood was fresh and well-prepared.

Sorry to see this treasure closed. Apparently Jocelyn just got tired of being there every weekend and retired for good after many years of excellent meals. She will be missed by her many devoted friends who've been going there for decades.
