Southern
Known by generations for her hospitality, proprietress Elouise Adams Jones, a.k.a. Ouisie, serves an eclectic collection of Southern foods with an excellent wine list to match. High ceilings and fans in the main dining room it evoke the ambiance of a Texas manor house. The adjacent dining porch overlooking the patio and garden, as well as Cooper’s Wine Bin, provide additional dining and entertaining areas. The daily fare encompasses traditional offerings like her well-loved pimento cheese, the shrimp and grits, and the popular Gulf Coast oysters to the favorite Tuesday special Ouisie’s award winning chicken fried steak with corn pudding. A fine plate of grilled Prime beef tenderloin or a brace of quail stuffed with super lump crab meat with Cognac glaze are good examples of the daily specials one might find on the blackboard.
Lunch and dinner daily, brunch on weekends.

The food was not good. We ordered some cornbread and had to ask for it several times before it came. Could have been much better. Good wine though.

Great menu selections. All our dishes were good, with the crusted halibut the least favorite. A little too much going on for a mild fish. Crab tower appetizer was excellent.

I was disappointed by the food. I’m surprised since their reviews were good and we were celebrating 2 birthdays. The food was bland and service was slow. I wish it was different. Sorry.

The food was outstanding, the trout. The food presentation beautiful. Service was excellent. Staff were attentive, but not overly present. Glasses always filled. Definitely a great place to dine.

Ouisie's continues to remain true to its menu and its chalk board. The food is excellent and the service even better. Breakfast, lunch and dinner all very well prepared, well presented and professionally served.

The oysters were great, and the crab tower was good. Sparkling wine offering and pricing is good (would be greatly enhanced by adding one or two good Cava), good and friendly service. But we tried many starters - crab cakes, stuffed jalapeños, and calamari were not good. The deviled eggs starter is a god idea but it's lacking in presentation and it would be better for sharing if there is more than just one of each topping.
Overall, Ouisie's patio is one of the nicest in town, mains and our experiences with service have always been good. Could improve on the starter part of the menu, even consider setting up a happy hour out in the patio

I was disappointed that the tables weren't farther apart. Most of us are just sticking a toe in the water as far as eating in restaurants after not being able to for 13 months.

This place never disappoints. The wonderful fish dishes the steaks and vegetables for dessert. I visit the place for lunch or dinner twice a month. All the people there are wonderful and now dining on the patio is utterly delightful. It’s hard for any restaurant in town to compete with this old favorite

My husband and I went to dinner to celebrate his retirement. The food and ambiance were wonderful. Our server, while very nice, had to be reminded about every request we made i.e. refresh drinks, bring a requested condiment, coffee with dessert etc. These things, however, were not so bad as to stop us from returning. I would highly recommend the restaurant.

Sunday brunch with a carafe of mimosas, filled with laughs and good vibes. The food was delicious and I left feeling warm and content.

The only downside is valet is mandatory in the main parking lot.

Food was good-when it was cooked as ordered. Service was poor, and not worthy of the gratuity automatically added to the bill. We had to rely on going to get the hostess and the maitre’d in order to have our requests filled.
