Our heritage is rich, and our seafood is always fresh. Learn about boat to table from the best of the best, history lesson included.

From upscale to open-air bistros, our world-renowned mix of dining options is as bountiful as our seafood harvest. Our chefs combine traditional local fare with southern-inspired staples, adding to our eclectic culture.

  • Stop by one of our renowned local harbors to purchase the day’s catch, or take a trip of your own and bring your meal back to a waterfront restaurant to be prepared while you sip on a local brew.

Get inspired by our Seafoodie Itinerary or follow the entire Mississippi Gulf Seafood Trail. You might have to add a few days to your vacation, though.
