Pascagoula has a new downtown dining option in Brady’s Steaks and Seafood.
“It’s a family concept that my brother Chad and I developed so we could keep people in Pascagoula, give people another option here in Pascagoula, and give Jackson County and the Gulf Coast another eatery close to home.” co-owner Steven Brady said. “It’s all family oriented. My brother Chad and I, our wives, our sister, and even our kids are all involved in the restaurant.”
One of the most instantly attractive aspects of Brady’s is the location.
“We knew we had an unbelievable opportunity for some waterfront dining, and we don’t have a whole lot of options here in Pascagoula for something on the water,” Brady said. We started working with the city a couple of years back, and this particular property had been for sale for several years, so we started sizing up our endeavor and the size of the property and it all worked out.”
Brady’s location brings something new and unique to downtown Pascagoula.
“We wanted to keep this place close to downtown to keep downtown as thriving as possible,” Steven explained. “The more options we have, the better we’ll do.”
People are coming from all over the area to try this new eatery.
“We’ve definitely seen activity from our neighbors in Ocean Springs and Grand Bay in Alabama,” Steven said. “We’ve seen people come from Bay St. Louis, St. Martin, D’iberville, Vancleave, Lucedale, Mobile and just all over the area.”
So far, feedback on the restaurant has been outstanding and business has been phenomenal.
“We wish we had built bigger, but hindsight is 20/20.”
With the overwhelming response, it gets the Bradys excited for all of the plans they have to expand the restaurant.
“We will be starting lunches soon in the next couple weeks,” Steven explained. “Right now we are just doing dinner from 5-9 p.m. When we add lunch we will also do a happy hour special around the middle of the afternoon, so we’re excited about that. We also have some plans for our downstairs area like outdoor activities and some seasonal boils.”
Ultimately, the family would just wants everyone to give them a try.
“We’re not fine dining, so we don’t want people to be put off thinking we’re too upscale,” Steven said. “We’re a family restaurant. We’re the place you can go after the baseball game or after church or have an anniversary dinner. We want to serve everybody. We’re excited to help the businesses here by bringing people from all over. We want everyone to just come try us out and make their way around the menu. We hope everyone can come and enjoy the view and to bring their family and friends.”
