There are so many new restaurants on the Mississippi Gulf Coast to choose from.

If you’re searching for a new place to try, consider one of these fine restaurants, each of which offers its own unique charm and tasty menus.

The Scratch Kitchen & Bar in downtown Ocean Springs is WOW! Brittany Cruso Alexander and her husband have created something very unique. They started with a food truck, but their new location in downtown Ocean Springs is all the buzz. Their menu has specialty dishes that raise the bar. The names of the dishes alone will have your mouth watering: Heavenly Fruit Nachos, Nanny’s Peanut Butter Parfait, and Smashed Potatoes Drenched in Queso. There is so much good food on this menu that you’ll have to come back to The Scratch Kitchen multiple times to try it all.

Marina Cantina Ocean Springs on the bayou is just off the Biloxi-Ocean Springs Bridge. The buildings have been totally redesigned offering scenic water views with several bars. Come by boat or drive up, meet up with friends, or bring the family as there is plenty of property for everyone to spread out. You will definitely want to try their tasty specialty cocktails. The Watermelon Margarita is a great choice. With the bayou view, this is the perfect summer spot to eat, drink, and relax.

Murky Waters BBQ Bay St Louis is a happening spot! The award-winning BBQ team has brought their blues-style hangout to the beach. Old Town Bay St. Louis is a festive place and Murky Waters BSL fits right in. The menu has all the favorites: the burnt ends, pulled pork nachos, and mouth-watering smoked wings flash-fried to perfection. Count on fast friendly service with a smile. The Murky Waters team has done it again. Come and get it.

The Deck Pass Christian sits across from Pass Christian Harbor. The owners of the successful Bacchus Restaurants bring their first class style to this quality Mexican beach party atmosphere. The taco and tequila menu offers everything you’d want from a Mexican style restaurant with a wow-factor. The food is tasty, the drinks are chill, so come and enjoy yourself at The Deck PC.

Ground Zero Blues Club Biloxi has everyone talking about the music. The lineup of great talent is impressive. The famous co-owner, Morgan Freeman, brings the Delta to the Coast with his second location of Ground Zero. What you need to know is that the food is as good as the music. Get ready to hear some rockin’ blues, party with a few specialty drinks and treat yourself to dishes with that tasty Delta flavor.

Make a point to try these new spots. Treat yourself!
