    As always, we had a fabulous meal at White Pillars. Lasagna was rich and delicious, but the amberjack stole the show! Strawberry cobbler was a great finish to the meal.

    What an amazing afternoon, the food was perfect, the server was spot on, friendly and very knowledgeable. Our guest had a variety of appetizers, the Biloxi Hot Hermit Oysters, the amazing house made steak tartare, and the chicken and house made sausage gumbo. A Wine Spectator 'Award of Excellence' wine list will please almost every palate and for the spirit enthusiast the WP Bar features a variety of local and regional rums, bourbons, craft vodkas and gins. Our main courses varied from the house specialty, fresh gulf shrimp and The Original Girt Girls Grits, and farm fresh eggs and mushrooms, The over the top winner was the fresh soft shell crab, Brioche French toast with house smoked bacon, and a brunch burger with duck fat fires.

    Would have give typical five stars, but we chose to dine outside this time and it was very loud… besides the traffic, the military planes were constantly flying over so you couldn’t carry on conversation without being drowned out… White Pillars can’t help that, but we will know better next time…

    Amazing culinary experience! We've gone before for dinner, but my husband and I decided to try brunch this past Sunday and it was just as fantastic! We both got the Prix Fixe Brunch and the portions were PLENTIFUL. Shout out to the Pork Belly and the Coast Roast Pot de Creme! We also got some cocktails (Requiem) and then went for the bottomless mimosas. Everything was perfect, perfect, perfect! I wish I could remember our waiter's name, he was young and very kind, and such a wonderful guy! Chef Austin and his staff truly have a gift. My husband and I are foodies who were born and raised in New Orleans, and now we live on the MS Gulf Coast. White Pillars is even better than Commander's Palace in NOLA, in my humble opinion. If you get a chance to come here, please do!

    Atmosphere was a little too uppity feeling for me. Food was decent, but nothing to boast about. It was just ok. Did not feel that the food taste wise was worth the price they charge. Wouldn’t say that I won’t go there ever again if friends or family wanted to go, but it won’t be on my list of places I want to go if it is my choice.

    The food was phenomenal, it was a beautiful presentation. The soft shell crab was gorgeous. Tasted wonderful. The amberjack was delicious and came with roasted veggies. The pork chop was my husbands favorite and he said he had never had one better. A strawberry cobbler and cream cheese cream was delicious. Our waiter was courteous and attentiv.

    We enjoyed our Easter Sunday brunch, the food was outstanding! Our server was great as well ! The only complaint that we have is that the food came out slowly. It was a busy day but we found that at first the appetizers came out quickly and then as the restaurant appeared to be clearing out it took a long time for the main course and the dessert to arrive. So as they had less people to serve it seemed as though the service got slower. I’m not sure what the reason was for that but the food was absolutely delicious!

    My hubby and I had a delightful dinner last night. The food was superb!! I had the duck confit carbonara, and hubby had the seared tuna. We shared the smoked oysters and duck fat fries. I also had the pea & caviar small plate. I love that it’s a farm to table restaurant that uses all local ingredients so everything is fresh. Kudos to the chef! We will return.

    We loved the new menu items particularly the pan seared grouper, it was truly amazing, but had a touch to much pink salt for my taste. My guest has the over roasted Blue Fin tuna, which the agreed was flawless and delicious. We never can resist the house specialty, French Hermit oysters Biloxi Hot or slow roasted in Chef Austin's wood fired oven, they are the best. You need to explore the newly expanded, Wine Spector Award of Excellence wine list.

    My fiancée and I heard about this place and decided to give it a try. The wait staff was very good and friendly. The restaurant is farm to table so it does take a while to prepare the meal. I got the New York strip and my fiancée got the amberjack. Both were cooked perfectly. It is a bit pricey but the food and service were excellent. We had outside seating and a bit noisy from traffic and it was a bit chilly so it would have been nice if they had offered to seat us inside but perhaps they were full. Didn't appear to be. In any event, it was a very nice experience and I would definitely recommend White Pillars to anyone in the future.

    The food is always outstanding. We have been many times and never had an issue with service until this time. We were in a corner table with a couch and it seemed that we were forgotten about many times during the night. We had to request getting drinks, request getting someone to take our order and were never checked on and had to let them know we were ready to go.
