For three decades, Scranton's has been serving exceptional cuisine in a unique, casual dining atmosphere. The restaurant makes its home in downtown Pascagoula, Mississippi, in a historic, early 1920's building that once housed the town's firehouse and city hall.Today, remnants of the town's history remain a distinctive part of the dining experience. Guests are welcomed to browse the premises and peek inside the old town vault; dine in the spot where the mayor once conducted business; touch the bars of the town's original jail cell, and glimpse the bright red door that once opened to the old firehouse.But the main attraction at Scranton's is the food - mouthwatering dishes brilliantly prepared with a local flair. Like Scranton's signature Shrimp & Grits; our special recipe of shrimp, mushrooms, peppers and onions poured over baked & seasoned grit cakes. You'll also want to try our Smoked Pulled Pork, slow-cooked and smoked to perfection on premise - or our hearty Crab Cakes, perfectly seasoned and loaded with succulent lump crabmeat. Then there's our unforgettable Seafood Gumbo, She-Crab Soup, savory burgers, crispy fried seafood, Po-boys, salads, fresh fish, juicy steaks, and specials that change daily.The list goes on, but it's always easy to see how Scranton's continues to earn its loyal following and win new fans each day. Come join us for lunch or dinner today, soak in a bit of local history, and experience the great food, fun and friendship that have made Scranton's famous.

Good eats.

I've been eating here since 2005, and the food is constantly good. I've had a few really good meals here, but it's pretty average overall. If you're looking for a place for a business lunch for more than three people make reservation and tell them you have about 20% more people than you do so they... read more

I had the grilled mahi mahi with sweet potato fries, and enjoyed the meal. The restaurant is located an old fire house. It's casual and the prices are fine. I'd certainly have another meal there, if I find myself in this neck of the woods again.

Good food. Nothing special. Service was okay, menu was okay. This is a good local restaurant. I would recommend it to anyone staying in the area. But there was nothing special about it. Nice people, good food, a little noisy, but I would go there again.

Stopped here for dinner while in town for business. The food was average at best. I had the catch of the day. The fish was flavored well but a bit over cooked and chewy. Not how I prefer Mahi. The table was wobbly and sticky. Service was ok. Others have mentioned the ambiance but it just felt old and worn... More

We've been to Scranton's before many times but this was one of the best meals we've had there. We tried the Bronzed Salmon and were delighted how fresh and seasoned it was. The service was great (Heather was our waitress). It's always fun to eat at Scranton's surrounded by history and good food!

The atmosphere of the old building is fine, but the food did not meet our expectations. Our server was nice. She said the chef prides himself on his steaks and that their mac & cheese is homemade. The steak was tough and very fatty (probably cut off as much as 1/4 to 1/3 of it as fat). The mac &... More

I went into Scranton's for the first time with my parents. This is an old converted fire-house, with neat pictures on the walls. The atmospere is great and flows well. Several people waited on us, and always made sure we had enough drinks to go around. My parents ordered the Reuben sandwich and the club salad. I tasted the reuben... More

We stopped here on our way to New Orleans and really liked it. The building is an old firehouse and is really neat. There's a map on the menu and they tell you to get up and look around. I had the yellowfin tuna with sweet potato fries and it was really good and a pretty good price! I'd definitely... More

My husband have been going to Scranton's for many years. We love the old firehouse, mayor's room and memorablia. The food has always been good and even very good. I like the fact that I can have a salad, a sandwich or more hearty entree. We love the cozy little bar and can always enjoy our glass of wine. Great... More

Didn't see what all the fuss was about, but it was good food. I liked the fact that its an old firehouse more than the actual food.
