Steaks were fantastic. Our group had the Bone in Ribeye, Sirloin, and Filet. All steaks had great flavor and were very tender. My only complaint was the service was slow when requesting more soda or an extra plate.

First time to this restaurant, very nice atmosphere. Very quaint and romantic setting especially due to COVID spacing. Breanne is an excellent and attentive waitress. Food was fabulous. Highly recommend and we will absolutely return.

My husband and I enjoyed a quiet dinner at this restaurant over this past weekend and the service was excellent. The tables had to be spaced appropriately due to the current COVID-19 circumstances so definitely must have reservations. Our meal was very good. Our appitizer was crab claws, different entrées, he had snapper, I had Alaskan King Crab, both delicious and we had to share our dessert which was bread pudding with vanilla ice cream. Throughout the entire meal they would bring us all the bread we asked for. Great meal, I left completely stuffed. Yes, a bit high, but it was a special occasion so that was ok. Would definitely recommend.

Overall the experience was average-good. No real COMPLAINTS, just totally not what's expected for the $$$. It was like getting Applebee's food for Ruth's Chris pricing. The service was good, but seemed like she was either untrained/brand new, or just not very smart, or maybe even disinterested in her job.

Wasnt seated in bar area as requested, bbq shrimp starter took 40 mins to arrive. If these shrimp saw a bbq, it's one I've never seen, they looked boiled. Worcester cream sauce wasn't bad but salty. Tomato salad was frankly disappointing, tomato almost sour and one sliver of mozzarella cut into 15 pieces, seriously about 1oz of mozz total on a $12 salad. Guess I'm spoiled by Jersey tomatoes and better mozz up north. Goat cheese ravoli was odd. Tomato sauce was flat in flavor, well stuffed with veggies, but the goat cheese really wasn't a good pairing and was really more sprinkled on top and not really incorporated into the ravoli. A dusting of parm or some pine nuts and spinach could of improved it. Really didn't meet my expectations.

We love eating here every trip to Harrah's Biloxi. They offer lots of specials in the bar but also have specials in the dining room. Service is great in both the bar area and dining room. We ate there three times our last trip and everything was great each time. Pricing is great for this restaurant. Love the fried oysters and my husband really enjoyed the filet mignon/lobster tail special. Definitely will be back.

This was a birthday celebration and was not disappointed. The menu has a delicious variety of offerings. They started us with 2 fresh hot rolls with just enough unsalted butter. My companion and I started with an appetizer, a generous portion of braised beef with mashed potatoes and carrots that did not disappoint in flavor. I followed that with the gulf crab and brie soup. Absolute heaven in a bowl. My companion ordered the lazy magnolia beer braised beef rib with roasted garlic smashed potatoes and I ordered the grilled king salmon filet with creamed spinach. Both were very generous portions with great presentation. The portion sized were very generous and we did not have room to even attempt a desert and we wanted to!!
Service was excellent and on point. Waiter and server wore masks as expected. The tables were spaced nicely apart. In my opinion, this made this experience BETTER because I did not have to be bothered with being to close to other diners and bumping chairs or hearing others conversations.
Management came to our table and asked if all was good and it definitely was more than good! First time at this restaurant and it was all I expected and more!

Well worth a visit if you’re on the Gulf Coast and looking for excellent food and service in an elegant atmosphere. Latoya provides us with first rate service. She was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu and helped with wine selection as well. After a week of bad meals in New Orleans where the staff couldn’t care less about the customers and the food was very substandard, we were very happy to find this gem on the Gulf Coast.

My wife’s Brie and crab bisque was exceptional, the short ribs “heavenly”. All aspects of our dining experience were top notch. We we remember this evening and return first chance we have.

Our server Melissa explained the menu items we had questions on. We ordered all of her recommendations, red snapper, surf and turf and a delicious seafood bread! Dinners served piping hot with beautiful plate presentation. Wonderful seasonings on snapper and steak. We didn't win at gambling, but won with this restaurant. Thank you Melissa and staff for wonderful food memories. The Stachowiaks.

Where to start. Husband and I ate later in the day. It want that busy. But the waiter seemed to never come around. My husband ordered a steak medium rare, it came out well done. I had a sea bass. It was good. For desert I ordered a creme brûlée. It took 45 for it to come out. And when it did. It was not good. It was clumpy, the sugar was burnt. You can tell they rushed to make it. It’s a chilled dessert. But the custard was still warm. Again, very clumpy. I couldn’t let anyone know, because the waiter never came around. By the time he did, we just asked for the check and left. I should have listened to other reviews. GO to RUTHS Chris Steakhouse. It’s worth it more and the service is better.

The food was amazing! We ordered the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. It was topped with crawfish and lump crab meat. Sooo good! They definitely weren’t stingy on the topping either. The service was phenomenal! Would definitely would go back!

We typically enjoy the food so much. Disappointed this time - especially as we were celebrating multiple birthdays. Caesar salad was very dry. Braised rib ordered by birthday boy and long time 7 Star was cold but did not want to complain to sweet waitress or bring positive mood of party down as first outing in a while due to COVID. My lamb chops were dry - def needed sauce. Was pricey for lack luster results. The dessert was amazing so that was nice.

We have dined here 3 or 4 times and have never been impressed. The quality is decent but inconsistent. The service is the same. Never great, and sometimes, like last night, less than good. Not rude, just bad. Our server just walked up to the table & stood there- Didn’t ask if we had questions, didn’t greet us. It was odd. The food was decent, but the lackluster service made for a less than enjoyable experience. For the prices, I expect better. I’d go elsewhere for my “nice” dinner in the future.

The server provided excellent service. Food was prepared well. They put us in a back room by ourselves and it was too quiet and everything echoed. The furnishings in the room were sparse. I ate in the front dining room in the past and had a much more positive experience

Waiter was awful. Had to ask for water... had to ask for a knife, etc. Also, with COVID-19, noticed several things the waiter did that not meet safety/cleanliness guidelines.
