Our Shaggy’s Run!

April 12, 2024

The following was written by Steve & Jan Bennett who created a “Shaggy’s Run” to dine at all of the Shaggy’s locations. How do I start? We are a couple in our 70s and live in Russellville, a small town in the central part of Arkansas. However, in the 1980s, we lived in Clinton, MS, for ten years before moving to Russellville in 1990. As a result of my profession, I worked in the New Orleans area from 2009 through 2012. Even though we loved the restaurants in New Orleans, we would escape to the Mississippi Gulf Coast to get away. Our first experience with a Shaggy’s was in Pass Christian in 2010. The overall experience started a never-ending desire…

There’s Something in the Water

June 22, 2023

A Foodie’s Guide to the Mississippi Gulf Coast Written By Jordan Lahaye Fontenot The following is an excerpt from an article published in Country Roads Magazine. Read the full article here. Whatever your reasons for being on the Coast, you should always start with a view of the water. There are no shortage of options, but if you’re in Biloxi—I say head straight to Beach Boulevard, where a lively set of quintessentially-funky waterside joints jut out gaudily on their stilts.  There’s Fat Bottom BBQ, Lucy’s Retired Surfers’ Bar & Grill, and The Reef—but I opted for Shaggy’s, a local chain owned by fishing buddies Ron Ladner and Rimmer Covington, Jr., who transformed a Hurricane Katrina-ravaged local bait shop in Pass Christian into the first…

May 26, 2023

Shaggy’s in Mississippi chosen for 50 States of Kid-Friendly Restaurants by the Food Network No matter which of Shaggy’s three open-air waterfront locations you visit, you’ll find the Mississippi Gulf Coast trifecta: food, family and fun. The chalkboard kids’ menu includes options like popcorn shrimp and the junior cheeseburger, with sides like French fries, tater tots, veggies, fruit and salads. A supply of chalk is on-hand for little ones to decorate the chalkboard while they wait. Parents can’t go wrong with seafood — the shrimp basket and chargrilled oysters are perennial favorites — but Shaggy’s has also earned a cult following for its namesake cheeseburger.

As the state’s largest event, Cruisin’ the Coast means big bucks for Mississippi – Mississippi Today

September 29, 2022

by Sara DiNatale || September 29, 2022 || Mississippi Today Hot rods, packed hotels, and a steady cash flow: Mississippi’s largest event is about to kick off on the Coast, bringing with it one of biggest annual boosts to the state’s economy.  Cruisin’ the Coast last year generated an economic impact of just over $36 million for the entire state from out-of-town spenders, according to a study commissioned by the car show’s founders. That was after record-breaking attendance, prompted by visitors hungry for travel following a nationwide lull to tourism from the pandemic.  “It was the 25th anniversary and the weather was tremendous,” said Cruisin’ the Coast executive director Woody Bailey. “It was very special.”  Bailey wasn’t sure this year would…

Sites & Bites: Don’t forget the ‘Rez’ when looking for summer fun, delicious food

July 14, 2022

By Kara Kimbrough for the Dispatch Here’s a suggestion: Don’t just drive through the Capitol City and adjacent counties in search of beaches, mountains and attractions in other states. Instead, slow down, stop and enjoy the natural beauty, scenic water views and wonderful places and sites to experience on and near the Barnett Reservoir. The 33,000-acre Reservoir, or “Rez” as it’s called, and 17,000 surrounding acres with 105 miles of shoreline offer natural beauty and opportunities for boating, fishing, camping and dining. Two of my favorite spots are scenic Lakeshore Park and Shaggy’s on the Rez, a sprawling eatery on the water featuring stunning views and outstanding food. To work up an appetite, first visit Lakeshore Park, located on the southeastern shore…
