Superior dinner, incredible venue, amazing bar, attentive service. Would have been extraordinary had we not been charged for two dinners. I'm sure that will be corrected. We will come back as often as possible . Our new favorite place to eat !

We had a wonderful brunch with friends at the White Pillars. It is a beautiful setting, and the food is great! We love the ambience here, and if you can get in the front room, there is a great view of the water. Sometimes the service could be a little better, but the food and ambience make up for it.

I have wanted to try this restaurant for quite some time, and it did not disappoint. The building is beautiful, it has a series of rooms that can handle any size group from a date night to the whole gang, and the bar is incredible.

Menu was really adventurous, the food tasty, and the service was great. The pork chop was really good (and big), my fish was tasty (and small), and the gumbo had a different twist with collard greens in it.

Although I would add a rug to the bar to make it warmer, you gotta see the 30 foot long 150 year old bar inside the building! And they even had Pappy Van Winkle. Totally impressed.

We really can’t stop talking about this dinner. We were celebrating a birthday and very glad to have a good reason to visit this restaurant. But we had such a lovely experience that we will not be waiting for special occasions only. Can’t wait for our next visit!

Definitely the best restaurant I have been to in the Biloxi,Ocean Springs and Gulfport area. This restaurant would succeed in any major metropolis which is saying a lot. The cocktails are also spectacular. If you live in this area or are traveling here this is a must go to restaurant. Things to have are the Gumbo,Fish Dip and for the main course the fried chicken and duck are both incredible.

Fantastic service and great ambiance. I was a bit disappointed in the freshness of some of the serving with food temps. My duck fat fries were not hot and that was such a disappointment... not the fries of my dreams, due to not served fresh. Presentation and flavor of the rest was good but still not too warm. Maybe the timing of the kitchen was off. Even the roasted pears should have been a bit more temperate... Coffee great, experience great, just next time a bit more warmth and I will tell my server so that my meal is a full success. But, surely a place try again! I had the crouque madame, which was well done. Next time the grits and a regular breakfast, which looked amazing.

My wife and I were on the coast for our anniversary weekend and decided to give it a try. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening from start to finish. The food was great, as well as the service. After the meal we dropped by the bar to check the football score and ended up staying a while. The bartender is an artful mixologist. Everything about the food, service and cocktails exceeded our expectations. You can't go wrong with this place.

My friend and I choise White Pillars because we haven’t been there, no one recommended it. We ordered two different dishes and split them one was the Carpet Baggers steak which wasn’t stuffed with oysters blue cheese and bacon like the menu said it wasn’t stuffed at all, it was sprinkled on top with the bacon and blue cheese and 2 fried oysters the steak wasn’t worth the price it was cold and hard to cut.
We also ordered fish with Blue rice it was also cold which made the meal taste terrible. I wasn’t going to waste my time giving you a review because you have to already know the foods not very good by the fact that there was no one there on a Saturday night at 8:00.

My wife and I celebrated a birthday at White Pillars last weekend and loved everything. The creative dishes with familiar, local ingrendients were interesting and delicious. We got the eggplant Josephine and it’s eveything it’s cracked up to be. My wife had the pork belly @ shrimp ramen and I had the duck confit pasta. We were very pleased with both. The entree portions were surprisingly adequate! We will be returning many times I predict. Madyson provided perfect service; knowledgeable, courteous, and charming.

This restaurant was amazing from the moment we met the chef at the local farmer's market until we finished dining hours later. Three days later and I still believe this is the top restaurant I've eaten at in my life. The food was fresh and well planned out. The charcuterie board and accompaniments were all made in house and literally is the best in the region. From the dining area and staff to the homemade clay plates, the ambiance was romantic and set a quality standard that far exceeded the price point. We will be returning real soon and have been telling all of our friends and family to start planning their own reservation as soon as possible. Service was impeccable and the courses flowed without difficulty and we were on time leaving for our other obligations.

Fantastic and unique restaurant. They smoke their own charcuterie, bake their own bread. The ramen broth is rich, and the shrimps and the mani in the broth are perfectly cooked, not overdone. NY strip was cooked perfectly, with just the right amount of blue cheese. Our table also ordered the wahoo and snapper, didn’t get to taste them, but everyone was happy with their food. And the desserts: you just have to try them all. Such a nice change from all the chain restaurants in Biloxi
