Mary Mahoney’s, Biloxi, MS Report #202

I’d love coming to this place just for it’s beauty and history.  This is a must dine at place if you visit Biloxi, Mississippi.  How many other restaurants you know of with an over 2,000 year old oak tree in it’s courtyard?  Pictured is the courtyard, bar and just a few of their dining rooms. … Continue reading Mary Mahoney’s, Biloxi, MS Report #202

Epic Buffet, Bay St. Louis, MS Report #201

If you’re driving down Highway 90 in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, you can’t miss the giant, neon, Hollywood Casino sign directing you where to turn to get there.  Inside the casino you’ll find the Epic Buffet.  I think it’s worth a stop! I wouldn’t normally report on a casino buffet unless there was something special… Continue reading Epic Buffet, Bay St. Louis, MS Report #201

Toups’ Meatery, New Orleans, LA Report #187

If you’re craving meat, this a great plate to go!  I don’t know any other place in the city that makes cracklins to order. They come to your table crisp and hot fresh out the fryer.  I know it takes a long time to make cracklins so I asked the waiter how this was possible. … Continue reading Toups’ Meatery, New Orleans, LA Report #187

The Cheesecake Factory, Metairie, LA Report #49

This is a chain.  I’d never think about reviewing a chain like Applebee’s or Friday’s, but this place is special.  It’s a chain that doesn’t serve chain type food.  The food is great and the place is beautiful.  The menu is also VERY extensive.  Over 20 pages, so I couldn’t take pics of all of… Continue reading The Cheesecake Factory, Metairie, LA Report #49

Chophouse, New Orleans, LA Report #27

It was my daughter’s birthday and she wanted to try this place for her birthday dinner.  Nice looking small steakhouse with a small piano bar, all of which is attached to the St. James hotel, so I guess if you eat and drink too much you can walk next door to get a room and… Continue reading Chophouse, New Orleans, LA Report #27
