1st time at the Trace Grill

If your looking for a great place for lunch head over to the Trace Grill. Stopped in with a co-worker friend of mine for lunch, even though it was around 2:00pm they were still serving their blue plate special. They have several entree's and sides to choose from so there is something for everyone... read more

You can always count on good home style vegetables here. The fried catfish is good too. If you go at lunch time expect a line. But it moves quickly. The bathrooms are always clean, which to me means a lot. Good value!

I had the meat loft which was good but the bread was hard and the sides lacked seasoning. You have to stand in front of the restaurant and order before you sit. I guess this is how things was done years and years ago but times have changed. So should this.....

Great place to go for good, downhome Southern cooking! Can't beat the plate lunch specials, and the handpattied hamburgers served on homemade buns...YUM!

The fried fish, fried oysters and sides are true Southern delights. The other dishes are there to make you feel like you were back home again. Came from out of town and knew this was going to be one of my best meals. Casual and sit yourself but excellent service.

I was in Jackson for business last month. Finding a non-chain quality meal around town was difficult. The Trace Grill was our saving grace. We had delicious sides liked creamed corn, bbq beans and fried okra. My colleague and I both enjoyed the blackened catfish with a nice side of cornbread. The food was fresh, well cooked and cheap. It's... More

My husband and I have had numerous lunches here and all of them were very delicious. It is Southern home cooking like my grandmother used to serve us. I really enjoy all the variety of entrees and vegetables to choose from - even though my husband has to wait for me to make a decision each time we eat here.... More

When you walk in you don't get much directio. You just step up and order instead of being seated. The counter help takes your order and you get your own beverage then they wander around with your food trying to find you. The food is good quality with a good, solid preparation. The service is just a bit odd!

The chicken is great and the guys that do the cooking are wonderful. I have been frequenting Trace Grill since before it moved into its present location. The daily special is always good and I appreciate the great service.
