Though I didn't LOVE the food at this restaurant, their cocktails were awesome!! You did not have to question if they put the alcohol in, there was no doubt! I also thought location was perfect and service was top notch. The food...so/so

On a recent business trip, someone recommended this restaurant to me and my co-workers. It was a cozy hip looking little restaurant with a bar. Sort of southern food, some Louisiana influenced food. Appetizers were the best - crab cakes, fried green tomatoes, and portabello fries. Side of grits with gouda cheese side were amazing. I had crawfish etoufee which... More

The only thing above average was the service and portabella fries. The fish was overcooked, the green beans were canned and poorly seasoned. There 'known' for their fried chicken, we returned ours and asked for a salad. Have eaten there 3/4 times in the past year, this was a very bad meal, will not return. Many more choices nearby exceed... More

Both of us had one of Julep's specials which was the fried chicken. This was yummy! it is a fried large-sized boneless breast topped with a honey,... More

A company based out of Jackson catered our lunch and served Black Chicken Pasta and Strawberry Salad with rolls. The food was terrific. I hope we will have lunch catered from there again very soon. Thank you!!

We had toured the Capitol and Juleps was recommended for a good lunch spot. It was a bit pricey and fancy for a lunch, but sure was delicious. Everything we ordered was excellent and the service was friendly, attentive, and helpful. It was a nice treat.

Met some friends here for lunch. They have a weekend brunch menu, which is very similar to the regular menu. Service was very slow, but there was a large hen party that seemed to be the cause. The food came out late, lukewarm/cold, and was basically tasteless. The best part of the whole experience was the strong pour on my... More

We decided to stop here while driving thru Jackson, after reading the TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Our waiter, Sammy Hardee, provided wonderful service and the food was creative, but comfortable. What's not to like about an appetizer of fried pimento cheese fritters with comeback sauce? Two of us had the catfish tacos, which were really more like a... More

We went here on New Year's Eve, & were pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was. I had crawfish étouffée & my bf had their famous chicken dish. Amazing!!! The crawfish had a nice spice to it & the chicken had a nice honey flavor that was delicious. We have already made plans to eat here again.
