We had a wonderful time at Hal & Mal's - make sure to visit it when you're in Jackson. We were tipped off by The New York Times's 36 Hours in Jackson. We didn't realize it was Blue Monday when we showed up. It's really an evening for the local blues club. But we were made to feel welcome by... More

In Jackson for business and stopped in for a few beers and dinner. I thought the place had a lot of character. Lots of photos of cool blues people and famous Mississippians on the walls. Definitely come in for a beer at least. They have a good selection and the service in my opinion left nothing to be desired. Really... More

We went to this place because one of our travel companions' names is Mal. The food was just ok. The service was not memorable in a good or bad way. If you'd like to see what this place looks likes: youtu.be/-xjnngywU4M

Stumbled across Hal & Mal's on a Saturday lunch time whilst we were driving down to New Orleans. And we managed to stumble across their first Brunch session. Lovely staff, fab food (the burger was great!) and nice atmosphere. We sat inside, but there was a little outside terrace which looked very cute. Got some great recommendations for New Orleans...

Cute place kind of out of sight behind another bar. People were friendly and staff was helpful. Good tamales! We were only in Jackson for one night and this was our first stop and I would go again.

We stopped here one night on a trip down to the Gulf, and the dinner was delicious! It was a Friday night, so we were able to sample the seafood bisque which was delish and the shrimp po'boys. All highly recommended. Two thumbs up!

This was a high point on trip to Jackson. A real place, real history and a friendly feeling. A place I would go to on a regular basis if I lived there. Great chocolate pie ! Pay attention to the hours, tried to go back for Sat lunch but was not open

This local treasure has been around for at least 25 years and it is a gem. Ecclectic, a great place to hear live music, nice bar and very laid back. The food is the star however and come just for that. Made from scratch pies (we are starting with dessert because even though we were too full to order any,... More

Great place with lots for the mind to do. The woman calling Trivia was funny. The food was okay, I had the fried mushrooms. The drinks were outstanding. Bravo Bartender. ;) You made it a great night. Margarita on the rocks....yum
