White Pillars is the best restaurant we have dined in the Biloxi area. The service is always above and beyond, the ingredients are fresh, and it feels good to know we are supporting local agriculture. I have never tasted such robust flavors. It is like an oasis in my mouth.

Went here for my boyfriend's birthday and everything was amazing!! From the ambience, to the service and food, we had no complaints about the White Pillars. The steak tartare, pan seared duck, brussels caeser, and beef wellington were all cooked to perfection. Everything is made fresh from farm to table. Our server, Micaela, was very knowledgable and attentive without being overbearing. Our drinks were constantly refilled. I don't think we ever went without a half empty glass. I ordered the peach on the beach cocktail and it was perfect. For dessert, we had the flourless chocolate torte, which was the only thing we thought was okay. If you love a fudgy like cake then you will enjoy it a lot. It was bad, but not our cup of tea. Overall, we would love to be back for another special occasion. Quite possibly one of the best fine dining restaurants on the coast!

The food was fresh and delicious! We tried several small plates and loved everything we ate! The crab avocado toast, eggplant Josephine, and Brussels sprouts carder were our favorites! The flatbread was also delicious and the derby pie with homemade cinnamon ice cream was to die for!

Great evening entertaining business colleagues. Service was friendly and non-intrusive. The setting of this immaculately restored beach front mansion and National Register of Historic Places award winning is more than memorable. The real test of a great restaurant is the food created by Culinary Institute and James Beard Award Finalist Chef Austin Sumrall. His farm to table ‘always fresh’ menu is both innovative and eclectic, from his signature collard green dinner salad, cold smoked friend chicken to the nightly feature of local line caught gulf fish. And please do not skip the ever changing desert selections,

This was by far one of best meals of our last year but maybe ever. Our family agreed the fried crispy duck confit with kimchi pancake is best dish we have ever eaten. Also kudos to shrimp pups, avocado toast and peach cobbler. Great meal for Father’s Day. Your food and service made our Father’s Day celebration spectacular. We will be back next time on coast.

First of all, let me say that the food was outstanding. Everything tasted fresh, had unique flavors, and was a great value. It was obvious that it was chef-prepared and that the chef knew exactly what he was doing. It was so refreshing to have a good culinary experience on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We will definitely be coming back on our next visit.

This was our first time eating at White Pillars since the 1980s. The pork belly appetizer, Thai salad, eggplant Josephine, New York strip, duck breast, and amberjack were all delicious, and our waiter/staff were outstanding.

White Pillars has a very interesting menu, a lovely ambiance, and the food was incredible. We started off with the crab/avocado toast which was as beautiful as it was delicious. Then I had the shrimp and grits while my husband had the chicken fried steak sandwich. Both of our meals were wonderful. The shrimp and mushroom sauce was divine over perfect southern grits. The paper thin homemade potato chips were an amazing accompaniment to a great gourmet sandwich. We will definitely be back.
