Flood lights (OK - bright lights), chipped glasses, stale crackers, and tableware one grade above plastic will keep me from returning to McElroy's - even if the food is passable.

This eatery used to be on Beach Boulevard in Biloxi until Hurricane Katrina washed it away. McElroy's must have been a tourist trap then as it is now operating in Ocean Springs. There’s lots of seafood but it’s expensive for this type of establishment. I had broiled shrimp, which, though small were good, a baked potato, salad and two glasses of wine: $28 plus tip. It got me yearning for the "appetizer" of barbequed shrimp (huge) at Deanie's in New Orleans for $10.95 that I couldn't finish.

It’s the little things that make for a good meal – a good experience - and it’s not at McElroy’s. Service: good. © 2009 All rights reserved.
