Maybe the best fried shrimp ever???? I have eaten a lot of places and this just might be my all time favorite. I've got to get back soon.

Some of the best seafood dishes we have ever had have been at Mary Mahoney's! Every visit to Biloxi, we always visit Mary's at least once! Our most recent visit, I had St. Patrick. Delicious. Wife had Sisters of the Sea. Amazing. More than we could eat with the accompanying dinner salad, but soooo good. Service has always been impeccable. Couldn't ask for a better place to celebrate our anniversary. I'm quite sure their steaks, etc. are excellent as well, but on the gulf coast we like to have seafood. (We live in land-locked St. Louis area lol)

Wonderfully fresh seafood dishes served by professional servers in a quaint and unique setting. The charbroiled oyster appetizer is wonderful. The Shrimp Imperial was fabulous and the Shrimp Melba had the freshest lump crabmeat on top that I've ever had. You can just feel the history in this restaurant with the original building built in the 1700's. Makes for a memorable meal and definately a return visit. We visit Biloxi a few times a year and our only regret is that we didn't try Mary Mahoney's sooner. This is a "must visit" and will not disappoint.

Elegant, attentive, old school service. A taste of old Southern charm.
Staff was conscientious and observant of our needs and requests.
The meals were presented very nicely with time given to savor and enjoy each course.
The food itself was top notch for flavor and quality and presentation.
Definitely a return trip will be on our agenda.

Second visit this year. Originally came on recommendation of friends which our group enjoyed a fantastic evening together. This time was a private romantic evening that was served impeccably. My bride enjoyed the broiled speckled trout topped with crabmeat with bourbon pecan pie for dessert. I enjoyed the flounder imperial and key lime pie. Five stars for every dish and side item. Service was flawless by everyone. Just a terrific evening for us. Come you won’t be disappointed.

The restaurant is in a charming old house and is well located in Biloxi. The service is excellent. The food is good, but tends to be accompanied by heavy sauces. The food has not kept up with the times, and in my view, is food that was topnotch 40 years ago, but not so much now.

We we arrived they tried to sit us in a table in the corner on the side. I told them that I asked for a nice table to celebrate my anniversary. They never even acknowledge our special day. The sever was a little stiff but loosen up after my husband and I talked with him throughout our dinner.

Mary Mahoney’s French Restaurant in Biloxi, MS is our favorite stop when we are headed to New Orleans on I-10 or going back home. The quiet ambience in the charming 16th century home blends well with the white tablecloths and waiters in their green jackets. Everything says: “Relax and enjoy. We’ll take care of you.” We started our meal with an appetizer of Charbroiled Oysters—simply scrumptious! My entree of choice for lunch is the Seafood Salad with its generous helping of crab salad and another of shrimp salad, accompanied by cherry tomatoes, boiled egg, olives, and pickles. We ended our meal with their signature bread pudding, drizzled with whiskey sauce. You will not go away disappointed at Mary Mahoney’s. The seafood is fresh and delicious. We always enjoy a break from driving and being pampered a bit at this wonderful restaurant!

The family behind Mary Mahoney's has been doing fine Coastal dining the right way for decades. The food is always delicious, the service is attentive and the atmosphere relaxed. Whether for a special
occasion, a delicious lunch, or private party, Mary Mahoney's is the place to dine well on the Gulf Coast.

We went there for our anniversary with a prior booking. we had requested a quiet table at a window with a window. We were offered a table at a extremely high traffic area. Waiters/waitresses, patron were passing close to our table at a rate of 1 or 2 per second. Therefor it was awkward, noisy experience. We objected to the table allocation but we were escorted to a table with equally high if not worse noise and traffic. The waitress started by saying that she was filling in for a colleague with a broken leg. She was extremely brief and did not have time for service or explanation. After finishing our starter she said that we might want to keep our fork and knives as she was not going to give us clean fork and knife for the main course. The bread was very oily. My wife asked for filet mignon the queen size however she served us the 12 oz portion. She did not have time to go through the menu. She was also extremely quick with the bill. It was not at all fine dining experience we had hoped for. Living in Amsterdam, London, Vancouver and Houston, our conclusion is that Mary Mahoney's Fine Dining needs some introspection. Our appraisal is that it is a glorified fast food establishment.
