I have only been to the Sunday brunch buffet and not the normal order-from-the-menu restaurant, so this review is incomplete. But regarding the Sunday brunch buffet, the meal was outstanding. It has been consistently excellent since I first went when it was called Sophia’s. It is a small, all-you-can-eat buffet – only about 2 dozen items on 4 tables –... More

Our group dined at the Fairview Inn's restaurant last Saturday night, and 1908 outdid themselves both in service and quality of food. Passed hors d'oeuvres included smoked lamb belly, crab salad, catfish potstickers, and bacon beignets. First course was scallops; second course was a wonderful salad of beets, oranges, fennel and mint with honey Ricotta; third course was a rice-crusted... More

We were so disappointed with our experience at 1908 Provisions. My family (all adults) had eaten here before when it was called Sophia's, but this was our first - and only - time since the change to "1908 Provisions." Hands-down, this was the worst dining experience I've had in years. The menu didn't contain full descriptions of the offerings, and... More

My family and I had decided to go to 1908 provisions for a nice holiday meal. Our server seemed very disengaged from the beginning and as we asked him questions about the menu, he could not give us a straight answer. We had to wait what seemed to be an unusual long time for our drinks and ended up asking... More

To me, what sets a great restaurant apart from a good one is the flavor. A great chef finds a way to impart delicious and unique flavors to his cuisine. The flavor is what sets 1908 apart. My wife had the scallops on baby kale with quinoa pesto. The scallops were done perfectly, and their fresh flavor was complemented perfectly... More

If you're in Jackson on Sunday do not miss the brunch here. Great variety of excellent foot and great southern hospitality. An absolutely charming place to eat. I'm certain the Jackson establishment eats here each week and it's a wonderful business -casual place that dresses up or down. Don't miss it and save room for dessert!

We were staying in the Fairview Inn recently and were so pleased to find a rated restaurant attached. The menu options were extensive with many a 'twist' available to try. The setting is modern and relaxed with tables set apart. I agree with another reviewer, that it was nice to have a chat and share a laugh with the staff.

I love the good food and the good service at 1908 Provisions, but what I think I love most of all is the fact that you can actually have conversations with the people you are with. Many restaurants these days are so noisy that you have to scream or just give up on conversation. At 1908 Provisions you can eat... More

I had stayed at the Fairview two years ago and while the accommodations were great, the Sophia restaurant was old and outdated. The new Provisions restaurant is wonderful! The food, waiter and ambiance made for such a great dining experience. The butchers cut filet was very tender and tasty, served with Mascarpone mashed potatoes! Amazing! I highly recommend Provisions and... More
