Casual, maritime-themed restaurant overlooking the water, serving seafood & Southern fare.
Important Highlights GOOD: Wonderful service, amazing water views and generally solid, fresh seafood BAD - We ordered many items. The tuna dip came with wrapped saltines rather than a crusty bread (latter preferred) The crab cake sandwich needed more grilling, it was very soft McElroy's Harbor House was very enjoyable. The food was overall very good but the STAR was the view. The roof top dining offers several amazing angles of the marina and open water - a must if you go Our server was very friendly and sweet. We loved the chili grilled shrimp, the cold shrimp and the oysters. If you get the crab cake sandwich, go for fried to get the good crunch. McElroy's should be on your list while in Bioloxi.

They clean the bathrooms regularly. Service was fantastic. Loved the food, just not as good as other restaurants that I've been too. The atmosphere was amazing. We sat inside instead of outside and I heavily regret that. It was hot that day, but the breeze felt amazing the view was fantastic.

This was not my first time, I was here many years ago, but my recollection was much more satisfying than I actually was with our food. Honestly, it did not stand out as anything spectacular other than the view and we had a great waitress.

The service we received made the experience 5 stars all day long. They were very attentive and fast on refills even though the group was large (11 people) and the orders were perfect. There is dining both inside and out if you would like to be outside in nature while dining. Looking out over the water to Deer Island was nice. Even if you eat inside you can step outside the dining room and enjoy the views from the balcony. The fishing boats docked next door with personal water craft next to the restaurant add to the atmosphere. Good times with family.

One of the best seafood restaurants we have ever been to. The food was glorious. The blackened catfish that my husband had was delicious and my crab cake just melted in the mouth. That, combined with the fantastic views of the Gulf of Mexico, made this a magical experience. We would highly recommend it to any visitor to Biloxi.

Customer service and the food at this location was terrible . I called for a pick $10 box burger fully dressed , lettuce, tomato the works and the wings to be covered in Buffalo sauce (they did not ask me for the pick up name) the wait was long but understandable since I worked in the food industry , but the customer service was terrible. Come back to work and my burger was plain, as well as the taste and the wings were plain. The only thing I was able to eat were the fries which weren’t a disappointment. Maybe next time will be better?

Really enjoyed my meal from Dem Dam Burgers. I have to say it was probably the most flavorful food as well as bang for the buck meal I had while on my trip. I ordered the Fajita Fries and the Surf and Turf Fries. It was so delicious!!! I'd definitely come back to try more of the menu.

came here out of town with my bf, for my bday. this place was right behind our hotel, and it was late so we decided to try this. 10/10! One of my chickens was chewy, and undone but i just threw it out. Everything was delicious.. The loaded fries were so delicious. The prices were super affordable, definitely a HIT. next time I come to Biloxi I will go here lol just for a snack. The customer service was nice as well, they were cool girls. There’s not really any drinks to choose from lol, so we just got a drink from our hotel. I want to go back now and get some more lol :((

Very disappointed! Chicken wings were gummy right along with the fries they were served with. Burger had too much lipton onion soup mix in it, almost tasted like i order a meat loaf sandwich. But im most disappointed with the wings. Bland and gummy. Suref and turf fries were ok! But look at these wings👀 CHICKEN IS TO BE FRIED GOLDEN AND CRISPY! NOT GUMMY AND TAN

Y'alllllllll, let me tell you about this place, it is amazingly good, so good!!! The 15 dollar box with the surf and turf fries was to die for!!!! The wings were so good, the burger was so good, it tasted like an old fashion hamburger. And the surf and turf fries, omgggg!!!!! 😋😋 This food was made to order and it tasted so fresh!!! They do not have a place to eat in, but they do have a little sit down area outside to sit and eat, so this wouldn't be a place to bring a lot of people, unless y'all are ready to sit outside or in your car. The wait was not long at all, maybe 20-25 minutes, but even if it was longer than that, I wouldn't have cared because it's worth it, the food is just that good!!! Trust me, try this place, okay? It's 10/10 definitely recommend!!! You cannot go wrong with anything you chose on this menu!!!

Upscale-casual Southern seafood restaurant/bar serving oysters & po' boys, plus steak & cocktails.
First time eating here. Came highly recommended from friends. The food and atmosphere were amazing. Pricing was great too. The service was okay. The waiter didn’t seem too interested in our table after we told him one person of our party of four wouldn’t be eating due to a shellfish allergy. They did drink some alcoholic beverages but the waiter was just not very attentive. Overall the experience was great. We will come back since the food and ambience made up for the lack of genuine service.

We ate here or last night in town and it was so good. Ambiance reminded me of New Orleans. The oysters were fresh and so tasty. We shared a dozen raw and a dozen sampler plus several more apps & shrimp because we couldn't decide. Great meal. Good drinks. Reasonably priced.

Loved the decor. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices. I don't eat meat but loved the sides. Tried the cheddar cheese grits, sweet potato creme brulee, grilled asparagus, jalapeno hush puppies. They were all delicious. About $4 each. My boyfriend tried the oyster sampler, he liked all of them minus the cream cheese and spinach version ( only because it wasn't his style). He also had the blackened red fish with a side salad. Which he said was amazing. Would recommend trying this gem.

It's a pretty nice restaurant with quality food. A good value for the price. I had the oysters and salad combo with an Albita Amber beer. The salad was fresh and crisp. The salad left you full without the regret of eating too much. The oysters were also fresh and cold. Served on a bed of ice with lemon, horse radish, and cocktail sauce. The sauce had a spicy taste but not an overpowering flavor. The beer was cold as it should be. The service was very nice, with the server stopping by a few times checking on our needs. The place was clean and fancy. It was a great experience and worth the visit. Thank you. Half Shell Oysters for making our trip to Biloxi memorable.

Ive never liked oysters until i have tried these. We got the char broiled and they are wonderful! The food was wonderful; a very good serving. The service was great- just enough time between checking in on you, very informative of the food they serve. My husband has been here for work before and he was impressed that he took me here for a date night and i am just as impressed. I highly recommend this place

Casual, waterfront bar/eatery with 2 floors & a chill vibe offering seafood bites & outdoor seating.
Important Details GOOD: The service, view, restaurant wow factor, and salads BAD: Nothing much - a great experience but we only had the salads The Reef will hit you like a ton of bricks when you pull in - a Giant painted fish tank (incredible, see pic) They have great views of water and a need clean, board walk that should be experienced. The salads were A+ - huge sloping bowls with piles of toppings that assures you nearly never get a mouth full of lettuce. The also provide plenty of dressing. The Reef was a great experience - enjoy!

The creole coastal pasta was awesome! My wife had the queso chicken. We thoroughly enjoyed our food. If there was one drawback, the tea was not good. We swapped for Diet Coke. Then again I haven’t had a decent glass of iced tea since I got here (the gulf). But the service was excellent and the ambiance was amazing! We ate outside in August, and it was pleasant.
5 / 5
Another great place to eat. They have an elevator on ground floor to get up to the restaurant. Downside is that it’s a long walk around to the restrooms. Service with a smile. Food was great! The mural on the outside was amazing and there were some amazing paintings in store by the same artist!

First time we came during the week so service was faster. If you go on the weekend be prepared to wait about 2 hrs for your food. Though we were given a table quickly the food took awhile. Great views overlooking the beach. Great food and decent drinks. They didn’t have much alcohol in them though. Oysters were good

I have to say that they had the best service, Lake our server was excellent! Had Boudin balls, gator bites, remoulade made in house, Fiesta Salmon, Surf and turf, bowl of gumbo... absolutely delicious

Local seafood, steak & handmade pasta served in elegant quarters with a fireplace & chic wood bar.
A beautiful old mansion converted into a restaurant with a great atmosphere. There is a long bar with plenty of tables in the lounge area that opens before the restaurant and had a live piano artist playing during our visit. If you go, ask for Robert, the second best bartender in Mississippi, you won't be disappointed with the drinks, recommendations, or his stories. The food and dining is upscale, but not stuffy and the employees are great, they hustle and deliver great food. Keep an eye out for the menu online because it changes seasonally. My wife and I had a great time and would recommend a visit.

Well I rarely post reviews but... So it's been a while since I have been able to go out safely (during chemo), so we have missed our absolute favorite restaurant, bar, just overall place to be, which is White Pillars. It is amazing! The staff is SO kind and accommodating to me, which has allowed our return and we couldn't be happier. Chef Austin is such a great guy and is often in the dining room greeting his guests (fun fact: he just recently beat Alex Guarnaschelli). The food, well, just YUM. We love it here and we won't ever not. And as a bonus, we usually see Chef at the local farmers market every Saturday morning. Thank you, White Pillars! We adore having a place where everybody knows our name (not really but they know my hats) 🥰 I cant list all the items we have had over our visits so I will stick with tonight's. The mushroom Flatbread is one of our regular favorites. The tomato flatbed is delicious also. The gumbo is a favorite. I always, always get the duck fat fries. The mac and cheese is just perfect. The filet is amazing, full of flavor. The summer seafood cioppino was excellent, very light. We always finish with a latte and the nanner pudding, which oh my gosh, is so yum! It's actually an ice cream. Yum, yum, yum. In the past we have had the seafood tower, well worth it just for the oysters and ceviche. The bone marrow and steak burger, really nice. The fried chicken, all the ways they prepare it, is delicious. Since they are always keeping the menu local and fresh its hard to remember all the dishes but I have never been disappointed with anything I have eaten. We truly love it here.

Amazing food and fantastic service! My first time here, and everything was so delicious. From the pork belly and tomato salad, duck confit, and the fig cobbler! I will definitely be back!

Beautiful restaurant. We had drinks at the bar before heading to our table. The bartenders are wonderful and make beautiful and delicious drinks. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Our food was very good. They definitely try new things and make it their own which I appreciate.

First visit. My sister had been once before and wanted to celebrate her birthday by having dinner here. Nice atmosphere. I could've done without the hostess telling me very matter of factly, there would be a cake fee before greeting me properly. Move on to the appetizers. We had the charcuterie board, the crustacean board, crispy fried okra, and Mac and cheese for the table. My favorite was the fried okra with the smoked tomato aioli. For just over an hours drive, it wasn't bad. I liked the appetizers better than the burger I ordered for dinner.

Regionally-accented Italian fare & martinis served in upscale-casual, old-school cafe with bar.
Food was excellent. My husband said he hadn't tasted veal that good in a long time. My shrimp scampi was so flavorful. It's like a great neighborhood restaurant. We will definitely return the next time we are in town.

We went here for our 1 year anniversary and it was perfect. I had a Washington Apple martini and it was delicious. Our entrees were great. I thought the fried crab claws could use a little more flavor, but the ambiance was perfect. Highly recommend

My friend and I had dinner for my birthday, we drove in from out of town and selected Jazzepi’s because the menu looked delicious and we were not disappointed. Reasonable prices and good sized portions but the wait staff and manager (possibly owner) were absolutely exceptional, attentive and helpful when deciding our options. We felt like honored guests. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to feel like royalty.

My boyfriend and I went here for Valentine’s Day & we’ll be back with my parents for my birthday dinner in a couple weeks!! The ambiance is perfect for first dates or 50th wedding anniversary it’s incredible. The soft candle lighting, soft jazzy piano bar style music & its eloquent seating for 2 or 20 I highly recommend dining here. The service was exquisite. Our server was a pleasure; warm , knowledgeable & over the top attentiveness. This has to be the locals little delicious secret . I have no idea why anyone would dine at the nearby casinos or anywhere in the area instead of Jazzeppi’s. The wrapped oyster appetizer is by far the most scrumptious oysters we’ve ever had . I’m from New Orleans & he’s from Mobile so we know oysters & if you want them cooked it should be as Jazzeppi’s does !! Bisque is phenomenal as was our pasta ! Kenyatta ( our server) was comforting & prompt ; a real delight. If you miss that Mom & Pop style dining experience embraced with sheer class & the feeling you are at a cherished loved one who’s a culinary mastermind you have to make a reservation at Jazzeppi’s right now !

What an underwhelming experience. The "marinated crab claws" are not marinated at all. We were served a handful of crab claws on a plate with sauce drizzled over them. Both the crab claws and the fried ravioli tasted like a freezer. I had the Red Fish which was supposed to be "the fish of the day" and this also tasted previously frozen. None of the food seemed authentic or freshly prepared. I am pretty sure the A/C was either broken or just off while we were there (in August) it was so hot and it smelled awful, like water damaged carpet. Thank God for our waitress, she was the only redeeming quality of our experience here.

Revered elegant mainstay boasts locally sourced seafood, premium filets & romantic courtyard dining.
Great food! Great atmosphere! We loved the court yard at lunch time. It was very shady and plenty of cool breeze. We had the Queens stuffed fish and shrimp & grits, which were very delicious. The lunch portions are pretty big. The crab cakes were also great! We also had the gumbo and it was outstanding. The chocolate cake was very rich and delicious. Very romantic and relaxing lunch. Alex was our waiter and he was one of the best waiters we have had in a long time. We will definitely be back.

You can never go wrong with a visit here. The staff is genuine and ready to serve. Old style service is the expectation here. Our waitress Savanna was awesome! There is clearly an expectation of how servers work, and they are held to that standard. Daniel has worked there for many years, and has served us in the past. They all treat children with respect, and speak to them directly to ensure they are taken care of. The food is amazing, and it doesn’t matter what you get.

5 star restaurant. Went with my wife for lunch and we had an amazing time. Such a romantic ambiance. Coming into the building you are met with small stores such as a suit place. The front desk was a bit confusing to find but the hosts were great and they provided us with outdoor table. We got the crab cakes for appetizer, then we got the ixolib stuffed fish and the shrimp and grits. All were amazingly flavorful. Definitely recommend the shrimp and grits. Overall an amazing place!

Our food was outstanding, but food is only part of the overall experience. We ordered off the lunch menu, and the selection was good. Mr. Bobby stopped by our table to greet us, and adjacent from our table, was a US representative, which was very impressive. However, the service from our waiter was less than impressive. We waited extended periods of time for refills of our drinks, food, and overall attention. It seemed that our server was either overextended or otherwise occupied elsewhere. We rarely saw him. He apologized for his lengthy absence and thanked us for being patience with him. For a $140 lunch bill, I was expecting a better level of customer service which we had received in past visits. As as icon on the Mississippi Gulf coast, Mary Mahoney's is the place for Southern and French Cuisine. On this particular day, our experience was not up to par.

This restaurant is amazing! Outstanding service and food- lovely ambience! The gumbo was delicious.. unlike any gumbo I’ve had (I’m from Lafayette, and it’s not like Nola gumbo either). Crab cakes were outstanding as was the bread pudding. And these 3 items are a hallmark of quality when it comes to Louisiana/gulf coast food.
