About the restaurant
Farm to table restaurant located on the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast, just steps away from the beach and the Mississippi Sound. Located in a gorgeous restored and updated beach front home built in 1905. We use locally sourced farm fresh ingredients to serve a menu that changes daily with availability of fresh ingredients as well as with the changing seasons. We offer craft cocktails, local beers, an extensive list of fine spirits and wines paired with a dining experience that is second to none.

Austin Sumrall is the Chef and owner along with his wife, Tresse. He was classically trained at the Culinary Institute of America. White Pillars has been recognized and awarded in many state and national publications since its opening in 2017. Austin was crowned " King of American Seafood" in 2021 and nominated by the James Beard Foundation as a semi-finalist for "Best Chef South" in 2020. His specialty is keeping his menu fresh and ever changing with local ingredients and a worldly flare.

It makes me so happy to have this dining experience on the coast. Every time is memorable and we always say we must come more often. All of the courses were so good that we can’t claim which one was the favorite.

About the restaurant
At Restaurant 1818 you will dine in what was originally the Men's and Ladies’ Parlors of the Main House. These two parlors are adorned with authentic period crystal gasoliers. These impressive reproduction chandeliers and wall sconces were custom made for Monmouth by the artisans at Waterford Crystal in Ireland.

Guests have complete dining freedom when they reserve a table at Restaurant 1818. Here guests can select menu items on an a la carte basis from the gourmet appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, and desserts offered that evening. A full wine list and wine by the glass program is available to ensure your dining experience is the very best Natchez has to offer!

Private dining by candlelight is also offered for 8 to 12 people at the main dining room table. This room exemplifies the elegant dining experience which has been customary since the days of John and Eliza Quitman.

About the restaurant
Mark and Mary Shapley began this dining tradition in 1985 and soon became one of the premier restaurants in the state. After taking a break to raise their two girls, they have returned with the same great food and service everyone came to know. Great steaks and seafood along with their famous tamales are still the main attraction along with an impressive bar and wine offerings. Please come by and see for yourself how special this restaurant is. We were recently voted 'Best Fine Dining' by the readers of Mississippi Magazine

Always outstanding, and last night was no exception. Tara was wonderfully attentive, it was a pleasure to meet new team member Meghan, and the speckled trout and brined pork chops were perfectly prepared. Well done, all!

This is a fabulous restaurant and a much unexpected upscale vibe at reasonable cost. With today’s food costs the Chefs and owners are doing a great service to the Ocean Springs restaurant scene. I would give it 6 stars if I could.

While dining under the porch at Frankie’s you will see beautiful crepe myrtles blooming, a horse drawn carriage pass by, and many smiling faces shopping on Main Street all while enjoying elevated, traditional dishes. Come visit Frankie’s on Main for a true southern experience!

Good food and very energetic servers. Busy bar area but we got a table when we wanted it. Certainly book ahead as it was pretty popular. We enjoyed it.
