Ocean Springs.....Eats & Drinks

Why is it that I am always wondering where to eat and where to drink? Human nature? I guess. Ocean Springs has a number of charming restaurants and bars all located conveniently within walking distance downtown.

After some research by J, here are our choices:
Bayview Gourmet

Located on Robinson Street, the Bayview Gourmet menu includes over 20 benedicts, omelets, wraps, gourmet sandwiches, seafood items, salads, homemade soups, and specialty coffees.  I enjoyed the basic breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, grits, and a biscuit. J. dined on an omelet of spinach, cheese, tomatoes, and bacon. Great food. Great service. Cute atmosphere.

LuLu’s Corner Cafe

Located on DeSoto Street, the LuLu's menu includes great homemade sandwiches and salads. I had the delicious E.V.: ham and pimento cheesesandwich grilled to perfection. J had the Hoot: grilled chicken, avocado, bacon, & tomato sandwich. Housed in a charming bungalow, I cannot wait to return to LuLu’s.

Happy Hour
The Office

Located on the corner of Washington and Government Streets in a stylishly renovated building, The Office is an upscale pub. Make mine a bloody mary, please!

Manhattan Grill

Located on Washington Avenue, Manhattan Grill is a cozy, quaint, and upscale steak and seafood restaurant. Starting in the cozy martini bar, J & I had a round of martinis. The bartender was very friendly and welcoming. Great conversation! From the delicious lightly fried calamari to the fried shrimp over fried green tomatoes, the menu choices were innovative and tasty. J dined on one of the night’s specials-redfish over grit cakes. J & I were happy we stumbled upon this fine dining establish. The service and food selections were outstanding as was the ambience.

Happy Dining Ocean Springs-style, y’all!
