This color advertisement postcard features three images of a restaurant. The top center image is the uniquely shaped exterior of a restaurant with cars parked in front. The facade of the entrance bears a resemblance to the fender detail on a mid-twentieth century car with green and chrome details. A sign reading Baricev's Restaurant and Lounge is in the parking lot in front of the building. The left image features the interior of the restaurant with multiple tables covered in white table clothes and decorated with floral centerpieces. Windows line the far right wall and the wall to the left bears the entrance door and what appears to be heating/cooling unites. The right image features red and chrome bar stools lined along a bar with a display of glass wear and flowers on the other side. The background of the card is bright yellow and the title split on each upper corner reads "Baricev's Restaurant and Lounge, West Beach, Biloxi, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher and creator information as well as indication for postage stamp placement. The description in the upper left corner reads "Baricev's Ultra-Popular Restaurant and Lounge, where Patrons may enjoy the Best of Seafood, Chicken, Steaks, in Air-Conditioned comfort, located on Highway 90, opposite Buena Vista Hotel, West Beach, Biloxi."
