25 minute wait to set . Was placed at table so small I would classify as a single person seat for me and my wife ( both large adults) .waitress was nice took order and had to ask for extra silverware . Drinks came 1st followed by 2 appetizers which this took all the table space then salads where brought out now juggling act to balance all this on table . Not 3 minutes later they come with entree’s . Had to send those back for a bit due to lack of room and only just started salad and appetizers only half eaten by now . Rushed to eat salad and appetizers only finishing half and sent back rest. Entree was brought out by now steak was cold cooked right but cold cold cold not good . Wife’s pasta was still warm and she’s not a complainer but I sent my fish back talked with asst manager . By time mine came back wife was done I had lost my appetite only took a few bits and asked for check paid and we left .
Moral of story Don’t Rush the customers and use tables correctly for clients appropriately.
We come down to Biloxi every winter and make it a point to eat here a couple times a week!!!! The oysters in the half shell are outstanding as well as the Ruby Reds!!! We will be back in 3 weeks and are going to be regular customers for a whole month!!!! You will not be disappointed at all!!!!

I just came back from my third trip to Biloxi, MS. On passed occasions, my husband and I ate at the casino restaurant. Since this was our third trip, I was SO OVER the high priced casino food.
Most seafood places fall into a trap of trying to be cheap and deep frying EVERYTHING! The food lacks flavor and dimension. I have learned that you can really predict the quality of a restaurant's food by taking a look at the menu and measuring the ratio of fried to broiled dishes.
This time, I researched restaurants in the area before our trip. Most restaurants fell into the cheap fried seafood category ... and alarmingly, many shipped food from Taiwan. WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?? Many others were five star and out of my price range.
This was the only restaurant in Biloxi that had reasonably priced local seafood whose menu was prepared with care and creativity. So ... I decided we would try them out.
Sit upstairs if you have a choice. The atmosphere is Sophisticated Casual with a ""bar"" twist ... with New Orleans decor. The ground floor could use a flooring remodel, but aside from that is expertly decorated.
The first day, we were seated immediately and treated very well.
I had a Shrimp Po-Boy and my husband had the ""limited time offer"" Lobster Quesadillia and seafood gumbo.
OMG! The flavor was AMAZING. Even though the Po-Boy is fried (as it should be) they didn't rob the shrimp of any flavor, and you could tell that they were FRESH! The lime sauce served with my husband's dish was TO DIE for! BTW, my broccoli was cooked perfectly. Obviously, this restaurant loves food and employs some AMAZING chefs. We got out for about $35.
THE FOOD WAS SOOOO GOOD, WE WENT BACK THE NEXT DAY!
On day two, we drug some family members that joined us in Biloxi to this restaurant. We came around 3pm and were seated upstairs.
The food was worth the wait .... but unfortunately, the service wasn't nearly as good the second day. We waited a long time before being served and waited forever before our food came. BUT IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT!
This time I had the Red's (Giant Shrimp), members of our party got Rubens, the Uptowner, and stuffed mushrooms. EVERY DISH WAS AMAZING!
Other dishes on the menu went as high as $30, but others were around $9-$13. So you could spend as little or as much as you felt comfortable spending.
I will hit this restaurant EVERY time we go to Biloxi.
