    Cracker Barrel: Homecooking in Chain Restaurant in Pearl

    by Basaic Written May 29, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    $14 as of April 2013. This was a typical Cracker Barrel, which to me means it's very good. The atmosphere is homey and the staff efficient and friendly. I had the meat loaf which I always enjoy (although my sisters still make it better).

    Mama Jean's: Decent Home Cooking in Lawrence

    by Basaic Written May 29, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lawrence is a town of about 13,000 located along Interstate 20. I did not wander into the main part of town; just stopped for lunch. The place I stopped did not look like much from the outside. The building is metal and it is attached to a gas station. Inside it looked like the decor was salvaged from an old house; kinda homey and kinda rundown at the same time. They were offering a special: Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatos, Black Eyed Peas with a desert and a drink for $8. Pretty cheap. The food was average. The desert, banana pudding, was very good but the protion was tiny. Okay I guess.

    Hooter's: Good Food, Pretty Ladies in Biloxi

    by Basaic Written Apr 4, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For anyone that doesn't know, Hooters is a restaurant that is best known for their attractive young women wearing tank tops and bright orange short shorts. I had their Manhattan Clam Chowder and it was great. My waitress, Amy, was a very good waitress and quite attractive. Got a nice group photo; I found it interesting that the manager, Leah, was the cutest of all.

    Olive Garden: Good Americanized Italian in Hattiesburg

    by Basaic Written Apr 4, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    $19 as of March 2013. I like the food in Olive Garden; but it is a bit Americanized from regular Italian food. This was a fairly typical Olive Garden but my waiter, Richard, was better than average. Hours are 11 AM to 10 PM Sunday through Thursday and 11 AM to 11 PM Friday and Saturday.

    Favorite Dish: I had some good Parmesan Crusted Tilapia and even better Chicken and Gnocchi Soup.

    Hooters: Good Food, Pretty Ladies in Gulfport

    by Basaic Written Sep 11, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was so foggy you could barely see the car in front of you when I stopped for the night in Gulfport. I told myself I would walk to the nearest place to eat when I got a motel room. That ended up being a Hooters. For anyone that doesn't know, Hooters is a restaurant that is best known for their attractive young women wearing tank tops and bright orange short shorts. I had their Manhattan Clam Chowder and it was great. My waitress, Angela, was a very good waitress and quite attractive.

    Favorite Dish: Manhattan Clam Chowder, Chili, Wings.

    Cock of the Walk: Don't get too Cocky

    by ATXtraveler Updated Apr 4, 2011

    When you head to Mississippi, it is important to remember you are in the South. I am sure you will not forget, as you are reminded on multiple occasions for multiple reasons. One of the great things about the South is their utter disregard for health food. Anything can be battered and fried, and most of the time it is really good. One of the places that keeps cooking oil in business is Cock of the Walk. This restaurant is known for its unique menu, with two entree choices, Chicken Tenders or Catfish.

    We started off the meal with an appetizer of Fried Pickles with homemade tartar sauce, and followed up with a plate of french fries, hush puppies and chicken tenders that could raise your cholesterol faster than a rocket. It was absolutely delicious. Top it off with a nice big glass or in this case trail tin cup of iced tea and you are in heaven. Just remember that you are east of the Mississippi River now, so if you do not clarify, your tea will be sweeter than a kiss from your baby.

    I would definitely take your heart medicine before heading to Cock of the Walk!

    Fine Dining: Mary Mahoney's

    by Astrobuck Updated Mar 29, 2011

    Great food and a wonderful experience. The restaurant was a house built sometime in the 17th century, exchanged owners a few times, and wound up becoming a restaurant in the end. Although a little pricey, the food AND the experience (in addition to the atmosphere) are VERY well worth it. This is a dining experience you will not want to miss.

    Biloxi - Mary Mahoney's Old French House

    by keeweechic Updated Nov 10, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The original building housing Mahoney's was built circa 1735. It is similar in design to standard New Orleans architecture. It now provides fine dining with a view. There is a separate Market Café which has 24 hour breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also have beignettes which are served hot.

    The Country Fisherman: Southern Home Cookin' (can we say fried?)

    by Small_World Updated Aug 10, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you judge a restaurant by the number of cars parked outside, then you'd probably stop here if you were in Mendenhall, Mississippi, during lunch time. The place was packed.

    I wouldn't have stopped here, though, because the outside looked a bit...well...too country, in a redneck kind of way. We were actually looking for a restaurant called The Revolving Tables that had been written up in Southern Living as a great place to eat. We found the restaurant, but it had been closed since 2001. I was sooo disappointed. But determined to find another great place, we asked the locals where they eat now that the Revolving Tables had closed.

    They directed us to the Country Fisherman, and we were glad we took a chance on it.

    Favorite Dish: The lunch is a buffet, all you can eat, for $8 (if you have tea; $6.73, if you just have water). The fried chicken is just about as good as I've had for Sunday dinner at grandma's house, and the fried catfish was equally good. They also had pork chops (you guessed it - fried) and turnip greens, cornbread (ok, so the cornbread isn't as good as I make it), vegetables, all kinds of slaws and salads, and ten choices of desserts (the crusts weren't homemade, but the fillings were).

    The Fish and Steak House: If you're in Pontotoc Mississippi don't miss this.

    by bsweet Written Apr 14, 2004

    This is not your average restaurant. You can either be seated in a dining hall or your family can be seated in its very own room with your door closed! You can visit on all you can eat fish night and enjoy the cook’s fabulous fish and hushpuppies that are cooked with their secret recipe that I actually believe includes beer!

    Favorite Dish: Fish and hushpuppies

    Shoneys Restaurant - Natchez

    by keeweechic Updated Dec 27, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shoney's Restaurants have been around since 1947 and they are now in 22 states. Every night is a different night on their menu and it's a 'all you care to eat' deal. The night we were there it was bbq night. Whatever the nights specialities are, it comes with soup and salad and vegetable buffet. It's a good deal restaurant especially for families. It was getting late when we arrived, it was close to our motel and it served to satisfy our grumbling tums. They also do a breakfast buffet and an express lunch.

    Applebees: a great draft beer

    by tompt Written Nov 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Applebees is a regular family restaurant. Food is good and prices are not too high.
    But a defenite + here is they serve great draft beers. They call it Brewtus® and you can have several different kinds, depending on what they have on tap.

    by atharo2000 Written Aug 26, 2002

    If you like Japanese food, I would reccomend two very good restuarants in the Jackson, MS area- Little Tokyo and Kyoto's
    At Kyoto's, all the cooking is done before your eyes, the chefs are trained to entertain!

    Favorite Dish: My favorite menu item at Little Tokyo would be the california rolls, while at Kyoto's I really liked the shrimp that they fried ( infront of us hahaha)
