The room we were seated in was very moldy smelling, expected that on a old building. The waitress we had was ok, we learned more about things that was on the menu from another waiter that was at another table rather than our own waitress. The food was amazing. Hands down the best gumbo I have ever ate. It was pricey but I don’t think it was overpriced.

Wow, a gem in Biloxi, and our server Tony with 3 decades in the house was the finest made the meal and time here outstanding. The lamb chop app is excellent and had the lobster tail and flounder all excellent. We will return when back in town.

Birthday for hubby - would have preferred being in interior rooms (more romantic) but we did not voice this. The back “sunroom” was a bit too generic, especially since we started out being the only guests in there for halfway through our meal. We both got the broiled flounder, which was excellent, as was the blue cheese drsssing on the cold salad. Service (Fred) was excellent also - Very nice young man!

Our waiter Steve made some wonderful recommendations and the food was absolutely delicious! The crab claws, the Shrimp Imperial and the praline parfait were the highlights - but every dish was great. We’ve been traveling to Biloxi for years and can’t believe we just found Mary Mahoney’s. We will definitely return.

Outstanding service and atmosphere. The shrimp cocktail was amassing. I had the seafood platter and it was average, however the other couple had the prime rib and were truly impressed. I felt that I received a good product for the money spent.

Food was amazing! Couldn't decide what I wanted so I ordered 4 dinners ! It was my anniversary, so I was celebrating .. we had Tripletail stuffed with crab meat .. Lemon fish, filet mignon and lobster tails.. and crabcakes !! The best food I've had in a while !.. I don't mind paying for food when it's good ! We had the best waitress !

We have been coming for several consecutive years to celebrate birthdays, and unfortunately this year was not up to the same quality of good food we are accustomed to at Mary Mahoney’s. We are hoping our next visit will be better, otherwise it will be the last time we travel 2 hours to celebrate at Mary Mahoney’s.

Food was good. Server was excellent. I'd imagine this is about as good as it gets in the Biloxi area. Would definitely return. Only wish their wine selection was just a touch better, but that's picking nits.

The house has many beautiful rooms, unfortunately we were seated in room that was created for the masses. None of the ambiance of the other rooms or the courtyard. The seafood dishes were all pretty good (oysters were a highlight), but the steak dish was not great...very tough and little taste. So we had a mixed experience that didn't live up to the hype.

This is Where to eat if you in Biloxi, staying at the Beau, or just passing through! The food is exceptional as is the service. The atmosphere is very French and will remind you of New Orleans as does the gumbo! Don’t miss taking gumbo home either as they will prepare it for travel. They ship gumbo everywhere. All of the seafood is delicious, we love the charbroiled oysters and imperial fish dishes. Dessert, well it’s so so delicious. Praline parfait, pecan pie.........

Selected this restaurant because of review history. Our meal was very enjoyable . Our waitress, Pepi was great!! They serve a very unique escargot , your have to like rich andWorcestershire sauce. But liked the uniqueness! We had fried green tomatoes with crabmeat and it was very good. Our salad was served with homemade dressing and was a perfect size . I had a pasta, shrimp and crab melba and ate all of it. Portion was small but just what I needed. Too full for dessert. Would return.
