Brookhaven Restaurants

  • Downtown Restaurants - updated 2008

    Good daily "Blue Plate Specials" under $7 and a good selection of sandwiches from burgers to catfish Po-Boys. Not open evenings or Saturdays. Located across S. jackson st from the Library and Miss School for the Arts campus. You have to ask, but they frequently have great oyster Po-Boys that are not on the menu.
