The Building at 200 North Beach Boulevard was built in 1903 to house The Sea Coast Echo newspaper. After Hurricane Katrina in 2005 the owner, Ann Tidwell and her son-in-law, Doug Niolet restored the structure by reclaiming original beaded boards and exposing massive wooden beams. Today the Echo building, as it is known to locals, remains one of the best examples of early 20th century architecture on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Now home to 200 North Beach Restaurant, this historic address features fresh seafood, savory steaks, and favorite local dishes served with a special flavor of the area. Patrons can also enjoy the "Hurricane Hunter Bar" for specialty drinks and cordials. The owners and staff strive to make your visit to 200 North Beach an unforgettable part of your Old Town experience. By providing outstanding food in a familiar and casual atmosphere, we hope you'll find the charm of Bay St. Louis in every visit.
