I met a few friends for lunch at 1908 Provisions on a Monday. It was my first visit since the change over and was blown away at how nice it looked. Then, it started to go downhill. We sat at the table for about 10 minutes before our server, Emma, came to see what we would like to drink. When... More

We spent a most enjoyable evening in '1908 '( the refurbished restaurant attached to beautiful Fairview Inn) The service was excellent ( thank you Dawn!) and the wine complemented the meal perfectly . I would thoroughly recommend the lamb followed by a delicious and unusual chessecake. My only problem was that I found the lighting a little dim for reading... More

We were guests at the hotel and got reservations at the restaurant. You need to walk through the hotel lobby and then a lounge to get to the restaurant. The bar is off the lobby and not directly attached to the restaurant. We had very good service and the food was quite good.

Fairview Inn is a small B&B in Jackson. 1908 is the restaurant located inside the B&B. It used to be called Sophias and also used to look a lot like the rest of the B&B. They renovated the restaurant and changed the name. The B&B is absolutely gorgeous, perfect for a bridal shower or wedding. Think old Southern Charm. The... More

Love the small pub feel of the Library Lounge, and 1908 Provisions restaurant is excellent. Had anniversary dinner and busines dinner for four there within the week! And put the two out of staters up at the Inn...they loved it! An elegant, warm, southern neighborhood feel to the entire property.

Impressive service, food, and atmosphere. I ordered the duck breast. Perfectly cooked medium. My only complaint is that we lost Sophia's.

This is our 2nd stay at the Fairview Inn and our 2nd dinner at Sophia's. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner once again and the atmosphere, as well. Abigail was our server, and she was attentive and pleasant. I would not hesitate to recommend the Fairview Inn or Sophia's Restaurant to anyone.

This is truly a gem of a restaurant. Food, service, decor, setting is terrific. Quality of every dish we had was very good. The location is on a quiet street, beautiful setting, and hands on management, that really makes this a worthwhile experience. A must try if ever in Jackson MS.
