Yep, been there a couple of times. They actually opened a location in Gulfport that we tried last year.

A few days. We will try to get our fill of seafood. Even a good take out place for fried fish. Any particular specialty of an offbeat place. With gas prices, we prefer affordable.

as much as i hate to say it, i think you've got all the worthwhile places listed. i really can't recommend much else as i don't really feel we have a very good food scene down here anymore. all of the places i would have recommended in the past have all gotten pretty crappy to be honest.

it's not seafood, but mr. greek on pass road in biloxi is pretty good, but there is no seafood to be found there to my knowledge.

i'm racking my brain and i can't come up with much else.

this reminds me why i cook pretty much every night and why we never go out to eat anymore.

sorry i couldn't be of more help. i'll keep thinking about this and if i can come up with anything else, i'll post again.

enjoy your trip. if i wasn't bells deep in stuff going on in life, i'd have you over to my place....

Mary Mahoney's for SURE. I just don't know how many other places survived or are back after Katrina. It was post-apocalyptic down there the last time I visited...
Oh - Aunt Jenny's Catfish House in Ocean Springs!

aunt jenny's has really gone down in recent years. i wouldn't really recommend it.

mahoney's is awesome, but pricey.

it's still pretty post apocalaptic looking, especially the property across from the beach. pretty sad really.

Wow, that sucks about Aunt Jenny's. I went there all the time when I lived down there... :(

Yep, wife's grandmother's place is just an empty lot. She had a small house about 2 blocks from the beach just South of the Grand Casino.

There's a place on the bay in gulfport called The Blowfly Inn. Has indoor and outdoor dining. It's not BBQ but I ate there last year and it was really good. I would recommend it.

my co-worker lives in long beach and just said the cajun crawfish hut is "overpriced and nasty". $25/5 lbs. crawfish. unfortunately, that's the market price now.

I only get the fried crawfish po'boy there. Tried their boiled before Katrina and wasn't happy.
