It was my 59th birthday that brought us to Mary Mahoney's. My husband surprised me with this reservation. I was delighted to have an entire room with just him an I. Our waiter was a wonderful guy named Tony. He made our visit very pleasant. We each had the seafood platter which was delicious. My favorite fried soft shell crab was included. We started with a cup of Gumbo. OOH so good. The consistency of the gumbo was perfect. There was plenty of shrimp as well. Yes I would recommend Mary Mahoney's to a friend.

We did not get a table where requested though there were plenty available. The upside is that we're served by a long time waiter whom we enjoyed seeing again. The food was good except the fried green tomato entree. The batter on the tomatoes was thick and gooey and the seafood less than absolutely fresh which, considering where we live, is unacceptable. The gumbo was, as always, delicious; the crab cake appetizer was good and the salads crisp and cold. I understand restaurants are struggling right now and Mary Mahoney's has definitely slipped from her standards of the 40 years we've enjoyed her food. However, we will go back again in hopes of finding her glory still there.

A Biloxi must!!!!! My wife and I always include at least one meal at Mary's with every trip.

We are normally in Biloxi at least once a year, we were worried that 2020 was going to stop us, but we prevailed. Always a happy day when we are seated at a table at Mary Mahoney's.

Matt Mahoney’s is a Mississippi Coast classic. We celebrated my husbands birthday and everything was perfect. I had the pork chop(s) it was delicious and a very generous portion. My husband had a specialty dish of triple tail stuffed with shrimp & crab. You will not be disappointed with any dish you order here.

This is my third visit to Mary Mahoney's and will NOT be my last.
Everything from the food to service was wonderful.
We plan on returning on our next trip to Biloxi.
The gumbo is the best around.

Our meal was so delicious from the marinated crab claws appetizer to the bread pudding for dessert. Some of us had seafood dishes and some had the Queen filet...all were superb!!! To top it off, our server was excellent...friendly, attentive and ready to make recommendations. Before we left, we made sure to add a half gallon bucket of their fabulous gumbo to our ticket.

The history of Mary Mahoney’s alone is worth the trip..you’re thrown back into an era of true Biloxi heritage.
The food was outstanding..I had the petit soft shell crabs for an appetizer then I had the best shrimp and grits.
