At shrimp sign 37 in Biloxi sits a strip of inviting, beach-front restaurants that you will definitely want to check out. With their prime location on the Mississippi Sound, delicious food and drinks and welcoming atmospheres, you’ll want to make time to stop by each one!


The Reef

The beautiful mural on the side of the building is sure to catch your eye as you pass, but don’t just drive by. On the first level of the building, you’ll find the main restaurant serving fish, oysters, shrimp and more. On the top level is the open-air sky bar. Here you can take in the view with more than 25 beers on tap to choose from.


Food recommendation: Without a doubt—Smoked tuna dip. It’s my favorite on the Coast (and I try it everywhere that has it on the menu)!



Shaggy’s may be the most well-known beach restaurant on the Coast. With additional locations in Pass Christian and Gulfport, Shaggy’s is a favorite of visitors and locals alike. This open-air, laid back restaurant is always packed with families from near and far. On the menu, you’ll find a variety of offerings including an oyster bar, seafood special, beach tacos, frosty cocktails and so much more!


Food recommendation: Beach tacos. You can’t go wrong with any combination. You can choose from fried oysters, blackened shrimp, pulled pork, seared tuna and more.


Baja Beach

While most restaurants on the row are known for their seafood offerings, Baja Beach offers that and so much more. This Tex-Mex seafood restaurant is unlike any other eatery on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. With more than thirty types of tequilas, you are sure to find the perfect house-made margarita to go with your meal.


Food recommendation: You have to try the Baja Queso Dip— it’s crabmeat and Gulf shrimp with queso blanco. Where else can you find that!?


Pelican Wharf  

Pelican Wharf is the newest of the restaurants on the row. Though this restaurant also has delicious food like its neighbors, Pelican Wharf is best known for its entertainment options. Behind the restaurant on the beach you’ll find Pelican Wharf’s Sandlot where kids and adults can play cornhole, volleyball, soccer and more. You can often catch live music here too. If you’re looking for a laid-back place to spend an afternoon, Pelican Wharf is your place.


Food recommendation: Boiled Royal Red Shrimp. Though we have plenty of shrimp on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Royal Reds are not easy to come by!
