New restaurant opens in north Gulfport

By Krystal Allan - bio | email

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - He's only been open three weeks, but restaurant owner Byron Johnson is already serving up some good reviews.

"Just wonderful...I certainly enjoyed it," says Rose Johnson of Gulfport.

It's called Four Corners Restaurant, and it's one of the few, if only, sit-down restaurants in north Gulfport. 

"We have a great selection of food which includes barbecue ribs, barbecue chicken, fried fish, shrimp, hamburgers and hot dogs," says owner Byron Johnson.  

"I'm trying the fish," says Pearl Grayson of Gulfport.

"I had the barbecue ribs. I'm so glad you didn't get over to me while I was eating because you can't look cute and eat barbecue," says Rose Johnson of Gulfport.

So far, customers say they're enjoying the portions and the prices.

"The prices are very reasonable," says Grayson

"Our prices start from eight dollars and go down," says Byron Johnson.

Besides giving customers a new dining option, Johnson hopes to bring something else to the community.

"I'm hoping it encourages other minority businesses to come back to this community, businesses besides liquor stores and stuff like that. I've had other people who've come to me to ask me how'd I get the project started, how'd I go about the financing and stuff like that. And I've shared the information with them," says Byron Johnson.

As for getting the word out about his new restaurant, satisfied customers like Pearl Grayson have no problem spreading the word.

"I will be telling my friends."

Johnson plans to add on deck to the restaurant by summer. Four Corners Restaurant is located at the corner of Martin Luther King Drive and Arkansas Street in Gulfport.
