This goodie with a crush on farm to table and craft cocktails was so happy! Perfectly prepped, quality ingredients, some unusual dishes. Great service. Perfection.

Have eaten here before and will return. One subpar night's experience shouldn't dissuade others from dining at this fine establishment.

The service was nice a tad bit slow but SUPER friendly and accommodating. It was very romantic atmosphere perfect for a lovely birthday dinner. The food was good and we loved that it was all local and fresh. We will definitely return next time we are in Biloxi.

Everything you have heard good about White Pillars is true. The service was attentive and friendly and the outdoor patio is great for relaxing and providing maximum distancing in the current environment. The food was extremely good especially the watermelon gazpacho. Even the coffee was great. Excellent choice for a great meal at a very reasonable price.

This was an absolutely fabulous brunch! Coming from California, I have high standards for brunch and this was hands down the best avocado toast I’ve ever had! For desert we has the pecan pie and the pastry shell with the bitter pecan notes was just perfection! We had a great get together, our waiter was friendly and had a great knowledge of the menu, and we could not have found a better brunch spot for the weekends! I only wish it wasn’t raining so we could have done outside seating under the awning!

We consider ourselves regulars at White Pillars. Since having our son we haven’t been able to go as much, but each time we go, we love that there is always something new on the menu. If your a local or visiting the Mississippi Gulf Coast, you need to make an to stop here and treat yourself for a night!

This is our third time going to White Pillars and we always enjoy the experience. Good service and great food. We never feel rushed, although sometimes the drinks do take too long to arrive. I would still highly recommend coming here for a special occasion.

These are very difficult times for restaurants. We went early and there were some open tables and the large dining room was unused. The Eggplant Josephine was delicious as it was in its inception in the 6o's or 70's. The other dishes were excellent, well prepared, plated and served by a friendly and helpful waitstaff. Duck breast very good and the Pot au Creme for dessert was very tasty.

We love White Pillars setting, atmosphere and lavishly appointed dining rooms. The seasonal menu is 5 star. Always fresh and local organic produce and meats. Chef Austin continually prefects his recipes and well thought out fresh ingredients. The presentation of food plated on organic handmade potty is beautiful! Attention to every detail adds to your dining experience.

I went here because of all the reviews on trip advisor. Restaurant was delicious. Our server was very accommodating. We started with gumbo and crab avocado toast. Toast won! It was great. Gumbo ok. Husband had a breakfast. His grits were very good. Never had garlic grits before and they were very tasty. Bacon was delicious. I had the eggplant Josephine although small it was the perfect amount for me and very good. No dessert, too full. A very enjoyable brunch.

One of the best meals I have had in a long time. I frequently dine in restaurants all over the country and I can say this meal was in my top of all time. Everything was executed to perfection with such unique flavors.
The atmosphere of the restaurant was great as well. We are from out town but I can't wait to make the trip back to Biloxi to eat at White Pillars again.

This was the third time eating there. The food was not as it was the previous two times before (food and service was amazing in May). I ordered the same exact burger as before and was raw inside. Edges were cooked so I ate just the edges, mushrooms and fries. Manager came by offer to take it back and cook more. I declined because we had already waited a long time for the food. I would have appreciated a percentage off just burger but not offered. Already had plans to eat there again on Sunday for brunch and went back. Food was much better however service was not present. Had to ask the other tables server for our server multiple times. The other server actually took our whole order because our server had not come out to even greet us within the first 15 minutes we waited. For the price we paid for two meals I do expect a higher quality and consistency of food and service.

Would recommend with reservations. Hopefully would be what we experienced in May and not this past weekend.

Thank you so much for your feedback. You are absolutely right. You should not have had to pay for your burger if it was undercooked. As far as your service goes from Sunday, we will find out who you had and make sure that it doesn’t happen again. Not to make excuses, but staffing during these trying times is very difficult. This leads to inconsistency that we try to avoid. We will keep working hard to better train our employees and can assure you a better experience in the future.

Delicious food and hand-crafted cocktails! Service was excellent and the price was incredibly reasonable for the gourmet value of our appetizer and meals. We even checked our bill twice to make sure they didn’t miss charging us for anything. From one local to all the other locals, this is top-notch dining - highly recommended!
