Behind the bar you will discover a wonderful selection of spirits including 20 single malt scotches and over a dozen small batch bourbons. Come in, relax, and enjoy the bar while our bartender shakes up one of your favorite martinis or choose from our list of flavorful signature cocktails. You may also choose to finish your evening by purchasing a cigar to relax with on our covered and screened in patio, (the restaurant and bar are non-smoking).

This is my favorite restaurant on the Mississippi Coast. The name, Maisano’s by the Glass may have you thinking it is just a wine bar, but it is the best restaurant on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. This includes the casino restaurants and Ruth’s Chris type chain restaurants. It has a menu of excellent entrees. I usually get pecan encrusted halibut or teriyaki salmon but the duck and steaks are also wonderful. There is also a good starter menu including light crusted and topped pita breads. French press coffee and desert make for a great meal. The full bar and the 40 wines by the glass make it the best.

My wife and I went here Saturday night and were quite impressed. It is small and cozy. The service was excellent and so was the food. We stopped in to the wine store prior to dinner and was met by the owner. He was very knowledgeable and helped us select quite a few great wines. We then went next door and sampled their wines by flight. We had a white flight, light red flight, and dark red flight. It was so much fun exploring different wines that we’d never tried before. The quality of the food matched the service and the wine. We highly recommend this restaurant!

Do not miss! Wines by the sip 1oz, half glass 2.5 or glass. Over 40 wines by the glass rotating every 4-6 weeks. Go with and share sips and half glasses. Compare expensive wines you wouldn’t buy by the bottle. Then choose from their savory menu. We’ve had the crab cake, hummus, scallops and the filet which the husband says was one of the best. This a destination bistro from Mobile to New Orleans. If you’re across the bridge at the casinos go to Maissano’s. Special cigar selection available to enjoy outside on the patio.
