Johnny Leverock's Seafood--Gulfport

Johnny Leverock's Seafood popped up as a must try seafood restaurant.   I am ready to testify that you better check your GPS for accuracy, since it will send you to a location that is NOT the restaurant.   After another phone call, we did find the restaurant with the help of the Leverock hostess.  

We began with Lobster Bisque (4.49) and Oysters Rockefeller (8.49).    Both were OK...nothing execptional but good.   On to our  Caesar salads which were chilled and crisp.  Our server was very helpful with our entree selections.    

Caesar Salad

My first choice was the Leverock's Seafood Platter (15.99), fried and adding snow crab legs (4.99).  It was quite a disapointment that they didn't have snow crab legs.  So, I changed my choice to Stuffed Tilapia & Fried Shrimp (16.49).  We also chose Chilean Sea Bass with Mashed potatoes (17.95).   Both entrees were good.... but remained ordinary.  

This restaurant appears to be an old standard of the area.   Many of the restaurant pations were "long time old regulars" and they know what to expect.  Many don't have the ability to require any adventures in dining. I am not sure why four other Leverock locatations have closed. 

The food was passable...but there remains TOO many other choices in and around the beach to enjoy.
