    My two favorite Gulfport restos are Backfin Blue and O'Maddy's. Must order the corn chowder at Backfin Blue (very rich, plan on splitting with a friend). And O'Maddy's is just a fun fun waterfront watering hole with very good food - I usually get a sandwich but they have entrees as well.

      We just had lunch today at O'Maddy's. Had a great oyster po boy with remoulade sauce. I certainly second the recommendation.

      Pia's Trattoria. I have heard really good things about it, the only time I've eaten there was for Valentine's Day and it was a set menu but I have been wanting to go back for the regular menu. Supposed to be very good Italian and decent priced.
