Description: Aunt Jenny's Catfish Restaurant, located in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, is just five minutes from the excitement of the Biloxi casinos. Step into the historic antebellum home built in the 1800s and dine on hand fed catfish filets, southern fried chicken and golden fried shrimp served ALL YOU CARE TO EAT. Our restaurant offers a spectacular view of 500 year old oak trees and the peaceful waters of the Historic Fort Bayou set the scene for a beautiful Mississippi sunset.

This old fashion fried chicken. it's done the right way, Salt, Pepper & flour.
The chicken is hot and freshly fried (so is the Catfish, Shrimp & fries) always great!!!
We always go here when we stay in Biloxi, sometimes just a day trip from New Orleans.

Went here in the afternoon on a weekday during the antique car show. The restaurant is a beautiful place next to the water, had a great view. I ordered the shrimp and catfish. The food was as good as the view. I would go here again.

Was in Ocean Springs for a week with old friends. Had read reviews for Aunt J's and figured we shouldn't pass it up. So off we went, and had a variety of the fish and shrimp dishes. No-one ordered chicken, because we agreed that would be like ordering tacos in a steakhouse. Our server (can't remember her name) but she did a wonderful job, keeping the orders straight, and all served at the same time. We would have come back for another meal, but we were trying out most of the highly rated places. But will definitely visit Aunt J's next time in the area.

Beautiful historical setting. Very generous portions of delicious seafood, even if you pass on AYCE.

This is a catfish house that specializes not only in catfish bout fried shrimp & chicken as well. Back to the catfish, fried nice & crisp but not over cooked on the inside. Extremely good shrimp & chicken. Try the baked as well. Very good assortment of sides as well. Homemade cole slaw & biscuits as well. Have eaten here many many times.
