Chicken was good

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.

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.

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

We were searching for fried chicken before making the trek back north. The internet led us to Julep's. It's a bit eclectic looking when you enter, but is truly southern. Our waitress was nice and fairly efficient, but we couldn't get past the y'all and gum-chewing. We went because of the review of their fried chicken, so that is what... More

Dropping off I-55 after Thanksgiving and not looking forward to fast food we happened on Julep Restaurant and Bar. The Ole Miss/MS State game was on in the bar attracting mild interest from the few people in the place. We were surprised there were so few people. The menu was excellent, the prices reasonable and the restaurant casually attractive with... More

I was looking forward to this place because it had a high rating on trip advisor. I went the first time for brunch on Sunday. I ordered the crab-cake breakfast. When it arrived it was cold. The sweet tea was excellent. I thought maybe I just didn't order the right thing so I went back and ordered the fried chicken... More

Growing up in New Orleans with a Creole Grandmother, I am very particular about my Crawfish Etouffee. So once a month, when I am in Jackson, I have to visit Ms Dorthy at Julep and get my Etouffee Fix. Additionally, they do a darn good Gumbo and a Crawfish Pasta so I don’t overdose. Whether you’re a Louisiana Bayou Country... More
