Good food.

Julep is a bit on the expensive side so I've only eaten there two or three times. However, every time the food has been good. The shrimp and grits was very good.

Wow! Great place for Sunday Noon. Called ahead to be sure of hours. Very helpful employee gave a quick summary of the menu...then simple directions for us from downtown, but we took a cab (10 min). It's easy in and out right off I-55. The food and service were excellent. Ordered the egg rolls, the salmon and the chicken. Great... More

The food at Julep is excellent. The seating is little tight but the service is good. The restaurant is a little expensive, especially for lunch.

Try some of the best (and least traditional) friend chicken in the U.S. (according to locals and cable network food shows, travel magazines, etc.). The sweet rosemary glaze is quite unique.

Sure it was a slow Monday night, but you think that would mean they could handle the few tables in the place. The award-winning bartender (voted Jackson's best several times) was slow and inattentive...lingering at the bar with our drinks while he talked with other staff instead of bringing them over. He did not remember to bring water until we... More

I judge places by their coffee and by a server's patience and Julep was awesome on both counts. Very small setting and classy but comfortable. I ordered the shrimp toast and it was very good. Everything tasted fresh. I can't wait to go back.

The menu's OK. Can't complain, but I can't gush, either. It's a little pricey for what it is. The see-and-be-seen crowd seems to like it.

We asked for the fried chicken without the honey drizzle. It was served with so we sent back. They rinsed the honey off and sent out the same chicken. The side of green beans was canned with a lot of salt added to it. Bad meal.

On business trip in which one of our staff talked highly about this find from two years ago. We all had the award winning half of whole chicken in a glaze. Yes, we all agreed that the chicken was excellent.

We were passing threw Jackson on I-55 and found this place on TripAdvisor so stopped in. I got the Mahi Mahi cajun sandwich and it was so over spiced and salty I had to send it back. My husband got the catfish tacos and there was not much catfish to speek of. The service was very good but I don't... More
