Once known as a popular breakfast dish, shrimp and grits is no longer restricted to the breakfast table served with either salt and pepper or as some my like sugar. Nowadays grits are served as an entree and no longer just a side. We have 3 suggestions on places that serve shrimp and grits on their menu- these are not your grandma's grits.

First, we invite you to try Bayview Gourmet Restaurant, located in quiet downtown Ocean Springs at 1010 Robinson St. Nestled among the live oak trees, their shrimp and grits feature fresh Gulf shrimp and grits with a hollandaise sauce and red pepper that gives them a flavor of their own. While you're there try one of their many varieties of muffins. You can't go wrong there! 

 Next, there's McElroy's HarborHouse Seafood Restaurant in Biloxi, serving a fried grit cake with sauteed shrimp in a Cajun cream sauce. It's a wholesome meal guaranteed to satisfy your savory craving. 

 And finally, By The Slice Cafe, located on Pass Road in Gulfport, offers a shrimp and grit casserole on that is topped with a creamy Creole sauce guaranteed to tantalize your tastebuds.

Keep it Tasty,

Walk, Eat, Explore!!
