    The place takes your breath away when you walk into the door, beautiful beyond words! We were greeted immediately by the hostess and lead to our seat by the window at the kitchen so we could see our food being prepared. Our waiter Anthony was extremely knowledgeable of the menu and answered all our questions. He helped us with our choice of small plates, main course, which wine was best served with our choice and of course dessert! He even went out of his way to make me an Americano as the coffee was not up to par. This was our first visit but not our last!!

    Highly recommend this restaurant. The service and food were absolutely amazing! My husband and I ordered the oyster and artichoke soup, hot oysters, raw oysters, swordfish crudo, duck fat fries and the flounder schnitzel- all we’re out of this world flavor. Our waiter was fantastic and they serve the food in courses based off of what you order. Hope to go back if we visit the city again! 💕

    My husband and I went to Biloxi for Valentine’s. The White Pillars had The BEST oyster and artichoke soup I’ve ever eaten!! Since it was also Ash Wednesday we are the only non meat option, swordfish schnitzel. It was delicious. I had the strawberry cobbler with ice cream straight from the oven and it too was delicious it was a prix fix menu and the options were over the top! Looking forward to a return visit.

    We have been to White Pillars for various special occasions. This Valentine Day meal was the least best. The reservations via Open Table were spot on (I requested a certain time and specific table). The food selection was just ok; the food itself was not very good, service was just ok nothing special. All in all the evening was a disappointment and we wish we had selected a different restaurant.

    Hi Jerry, we are really sorry that you didn't enjoy your meal. Thank you so much for you and your wife's patronage! We would love to learn more about how we could improve if you would like to shoot us an email and maybe there is some way we could make it up to you in the future. Sincerely, Austin Sumrall Chef/Owner

    Came here on a date for Valentine’s Day, and it was fantastic! I’m vegetarian and they had plenty of delicious options for me. The server was nice, the place is beautiful, and the sangria is phenomenal! Seriously, I had like 3 glasses. If you’re looking for a date night spot, this is the place.

    The new brunch menu featuring Biloxi Hot Oyster, which are flash fried locally farmed French Hermit oysters, which as their name implies, are zesty cornbread breading with a dash of the in-house made White Pillars hot sauce. They are addictive. Equally unique is the board roasted French Hermit oysters on the half shell, topped with Parmesan cheese and creole seasoning, parsley and a mild touch of fresh garlic. Do not miss the fresh Swordfish Piccata, lightly pounded, like traditional baby veal would be, served on a generous bead of fresh farm raised potatoes, and topped with sauce of lemon, butter, and wild mushrooms. Our server was amazing as ever.

    We had Sunday brunch at White Pillars to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. The food and service were outstanding. I had the Thai salad and the brioche French toast. My wife had the Korean BBQ pork belly (outstanding!!) and the shrimp and grits. The atmosphere was quiet and friendly. Highly recommend that you give White Pillars a try.

    I enjoy every visit immensely and was pleased with my brunch visit. I was lucky enough to have the lasagna and it was off the charts! I always know it is a great dish when the tastebuds on the sides of my tounge dance! You can really taste the love and care put into that dish. Thank you again for a pleasurable dining experience. I didn't think dinner on my last visit could be topped but my brunch visit exceeded my expectations. This is my second annual visit of many to come and I will always make a reservation or two upon my return. Keep up the exceptional work and best wishes to you and your staff moving forward.
