    The specialty cocktails were excellent. The seafood cioppino and rabbit were very good. The only complaint was the chocolate torte desert needed to be at room temperature, it tasted good but was too hard & therefore difficult to eat

First time having southern oysters which we enjoyed more than the northern. Ordered the secreto and rabbit confit papperdalle, foie gras app - all marvelous.

    The place is beautiful and clean. The ambiance was nice. The food, in my opinion, was super salty, but still had good flavor. The service is where I had issues. First, I want to mention that the young man who was responsible for keeping our water filled was really awesome with a great personality and I wish I had gotten his name. Our server did the bare minimum and I was underwhelmed. We had to flag him down for refills, he didn't check to see how we liked our dinner, and seemed much more interested in chatting with the ladies at the table next to us who were enjoying multiple cocktails. We filled out the reason for our celebration (two birthdays) on the OpenTable reservation and confirmed it with the hostess when we arrived who advised she would tell "them". However nothing at all was done or said regarding our birthdays so I'm really confused about what was supposed to happen. I thought, at the very least, there'd be a candle in our dessert or something. All in all, it was a pleasant enough evening, but for those prices and the lackluster service, I don't think I'll be in a rush to return.

    White PillarsResponded on September 9, 2022Hi, we are so sorry that you did not enjoy your experience. We will use your feedback with our staff that was involved and try to do better. We hope you give us another chance sometime. Sincerely, The Sumralls

    Make reservations it's easier. Though they do have walk ins available. If sitting in bar area it is a little loud with the piano playing right there. Didn't bother us but in case someone would rather a little quieter. ALL the food was amazing we were here for our 20th anniversary and all of our waiters/waitress/hostess were all so polite and helpful.with any questions. Wish I lived closer to enjoy more often. The menu is farm to table so it's changes. I didn't get a picture but the praline cheesecake was to die for !

    The service and food were excellent. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. We were seated at a round tufted circular couch with a table and chair. We were in very close proximity to other couples. It was uncomfortable and not romantic. Next time, I will call and request to be seated at an actual table.

    I’ve been here several times and was really disappointed in our last experience. The drinks were watery, so much so that we sent one back to get straight up so ice didn’t melt before it got to us. My husband was served a cold pork chop, like had been at room temp for a long time, the meat was tough. We told the management about this and they apologized but still charged us for The uneaten (except for a bite) pork chop and watered down returned drink. Our server was kind and very apologetic. Honestly the service is exceptionally slow and it took 40 minutes for our appetizer to come out (oysters on ice). We were seated in a corner next to the service station, and it was very loud. There were plenary of tables near the center of the restaurant also, it was 50% empty at the time we dined. For the high price tag (over 200$ for 2) and the above reasons I don’t think we’ll be dining here again, which is a shame because it could be great.

    White PillarsResponded on August 29, 2022Hi, we are so sorry that you did not enjoy your experience. We really try to give the perfect experience to our guest, but we know sometimes we fall short. All we can do is apologize and try to learn from our mistakes. We really hope you give us another chance, especially if you enjoyed your other visits. I will add one other thing. It may not have seemed busy in the room you were in, but we have 7 dining rooms. It was busy Saturday night. Not an excuse just a fact. Sincerely, the Sumralls.

    Dining at White Pillars is an experience! Most of our lives are filled with going out to eat, you grab a bite to eat and then head home or on to the next destination. This is not that type of place per se. Going here is a memorable experience that you will not soon forget. White Pillars is a dining experience where the food is not only fantastic, but it’s going to push the boundaries of your regular diet and you will want to try new things. The menu is constantly changing and everything is made in-house, the variety and variation from one visit to the next leaves one feeling like every visit is a new one. As a Carnivore, we are called to experience new things in the animal world, and that world is fully open to you to explore nose-to-tail eating at this restaurant. My boundaries are expanded when trying out their charcuterie board or tasting some of their delicious fish. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and very enthusiastic. They are all really good at what they do. Do yourself a favor and come let this staff show you the way to new culinary heights!

    Exquisite! We visited last week and followed up with reservations for our daughter’s 15th birthday dinner. We had a party of 7, and the service was delightful! Every sip of their handcrafted cocktails brings pure joy, and every savory bite of every dish was a culinary taste explosion…an absolute palate pleaser! I will not hesitate to tell you that I’ve had gourmet food across the globe and White Pillars continues to maintain their position at the top. Make your reservations today and be prepared to be amazed!!!

    We saw the social media post about the Summer Seafood Cioppino on a gloomy, rainy day, and I immediately hit the Open Table app to reserve a table in the bar. We enjoyed the ambiance with a whiskey sour and started with the tomato salad and oysters 3 ways - the Biloxi Hot was the favorite. I had the Fried Mahi-mahi- served over black rice, with a hint of curry cream sauce and topped with a cool cucumber topping. (I forgot to read the description, so this was my guess). The fish was perfectly fried in a mild batter that held a nice crispy texture. Spices in the dish were a nice complement without being overpowering. This plate was very satisfying. My husband stuck with the original plan and ordered the Cioppino. He couldn’t say enough about it. We were stuffed, so we had to take our praline cheese cake to go. We cannot wait until our next visit.

    Fantastic food! Madyson was attentive and offered appropriate suggestions regarding the menu. We started with the tomato salad and fried okra. The aioli with the okra was simply amazing. The mix of fruit and tomatoes really worked. We moved on the the amberjack. The fish was cooked to perfection and the chimichurri complemented it wonderfully. The potatoes were good but not my favorite. For dessert we shared the praline cheesecake and peach cobbler. While the peach cobbler was great, the praline cheesecake was absolutely divine! We can’t wait to go back to try more of the menu!

    The food was absolutely amazing. However, we were there a total of 2 hours and 45 minutes largely due to having to wait on our food to be brought. We had to wait nearly 20 minutes even with a reservation to be seated, which I’m sure was also due to the slow service. We ordered dessert to celebrate a birthday and that took another 25 minutes to get. I was looking for the waiter to finally come back around and just tell him nevermind, we needed our check when the dessert was finally brought. Another 20 minutes later and we were finally able to leave. So overall, food was fantastic, waiter was pretty good but disappeared for longer periods of time the longer we were there and the food took entirely too long to come.

    I don't know why we have not gone there before. Maybe because it looked very small from the road? Anyway, it is much larger inside and even at 6:00 pm was already filling up. Great place to go for a date night or out with friends.
