Crazy Fish is more about its bar business than its food. This fish place is for the birds – and lounge lizards.

The tables in the main dining room were empty (a clue) so I walked into the lounge where all the action seemed to be. The bar was full and the female bartenders were nearly stumbling over each other serving drinks and a meal here and there. Two good barkeeps should have been able to handle it; there were fewer than 20 people seated and no other parties at tables. At one time there were four behind the bar – plus one of the owners as stern observer.

He should pay more attention to the food than the bartenders.

I ordered mahi mahi with a house salad and a baked potato. The salad was covered in unappetizing reconstituted bacon bits and the dressing was tasteless. The fish was thin – and frozen, not fresh. That did it for me; I’ll not be back.

They serve Po’ Boys, pasta, a variety of fish and shrimp dishes and landlubber fare.

Crazy Fish, located in an attractive Ocean Springs strip center, attracts a motley crowd, including one character, when I was there, who was placing bets with his bookie by phone. © 2009 All rights reserved.
