This was my first time and being from Louisiana the food was just as good as home. Get the Stuffed Snapper. Snapper, shrimp, crabmeat with a side of crawfish tails over pasta and side salad with house dressing. It was perfect! Everything was great! Costs were reasonable, service was great, easy to get to and a beautiful old building. It's on my list of great places to eat!
My husband and I ate at this restaurant only a little over a week ago, on the 19th of April, 2008. We were staying at the Beau Rivage for a convention. We were hungry for "FRESH" seafood and WOW!!! is all I can say! I had the "Crab and Shrimp Au Gratin" and he had the "Crab Claws, broiled". Oh my .....how delicious!
The waitress was knowlegable and so very helpful! We loved the ambience and the historical information about the house and so very much, appreciate the freshness of the food!
I just mentioned to him today that he can take me there for every occasion we have coming up! ;-) PS...we live in Birmingham, AL!!!
Thank you, staff and chef and all those who made this a very memorable experience. We will be back!
We visited Biloxi just prior to hurricane Katrina, and spent an evening at Mary Mahoney's restaurant. It was great. We only hope the damage caused by hurricane Katrina was reparable.....it was a fond memory to us to have been there, and we hope to return.
the boys and I do a gambling trip every 6 months and stay across the street @ The Beau Rivage and have been told this place is GREAT !!!!! Well we did not get misled by any means!!!!the food was EXCELLENT !! SERVICE OUTSTANDING !!!! We'll be back in May and can't wait to make our reservations for dinner.
I know I'm a little late, but....we ate there about two yearws ago and it was one of the nicest evenings we had. The food was wonderful, the ambiance was superb, and the waiting staff was great, particularly our waiter who carried on a running humorous conversation with us, while at the same time answering any questions we had. We hope that Katrina didn't do any lasting damage. We would certainly hightly recommend.
Our Red Hat group had really looked forward to our trip to this restaurant. Over all we were not really happy with our service. First we were stuck in the very back room in the back corner. My Prime Rib was good but when I asked for horseradish sauce they threw me a cup of plain horseradish! The waitress over charged me and when I tried to quietly ask her about it she just dismissed me as wrong. Another couple was overcharged also.
Others at the table couldn't eat their crab patties due to some kind of seasoning. The Etoufee did not look or taste like anyone had seen before. Maybe it was just a bad kitchen day.
I truly hope this is just an anomaly and that things are not usually like this since it is a very
Main building charming, but this visit we were seated in an adjacent room that felt like a basement. 3 of 4 dishes came out at the same time, my wife's coming out 20 minutes later. Lobster tail was very overcooked, filet done properly at rare, presentation no better than a Shoney's. Wife's eggplant was soggy - Water not refilled promptly, bread served late, wine came out late - all in all, no better than lower average on food quality, ambience of our particular room, service, speed. We eat at some of the best restaurants wherever we travel, and this was distinctly disappointing considering their reputation. Our tab for a 4 person meal was over 400.00 - we've spent more for a far better experience, and far less for an equivilant experience. Some of the newer restaurants in the Casinos are a far better value, with interesting food and better service, for similar prices. There is nothing complex or interesting, or remotely french about their food. Not even really creole. Plain well below average.
Both my brothers met my sister and I here on a return trip from Destin with our Mom. It was great. The crab claws for starters were great. We had some fried and some broiled. We ordered an assortments of main courses and everyone was delighted. We shared several deserts. All were good but the pecan pie with ice cream was better than my Mom's homemade, which is saying alot. The service was excellent and we were seated at our reservation time. This was our first time there and everyone in the family was impressed.
I ate there twice during my 4 day stay in Biloxi! The atmosphere and food are both superb!! You can make it a formal affair or go in capris and flip/flops. You HAVE to go there if you stay in Biloxi. Make sure to get reservations!
i grew us in biloxi, and ate at mary mahoney's often. it wasn't until i was grown, moved around throughout the country that i came to realize how terrific this restuarant truely is. now residing in alabama, i have the opportunity to pass through the area on a semi regular basis. stopping for a broiled shrimp po boy is a must do on every trip!!! i recommond mary mahoney's to everyone and anyone i run across who's headed that way!!!
