A taste of Mississippi

Chef Tyler Thames opened Restaraunt Tyler with an eye towards using Mississippi products in preparation of the food. He has been very successful with this approach. Pork, duck, catfish, shrimp honey and sweet potatos are all key ingredients. He has done well with this. I had a grilled center... read more

When one reads about a restaurant sourcing local ingredients for its menu, one believes the food will be fresh and healthy. (That's what I get for expecting.) Most of the lunch options were fried. The vegetables did not taste fresh. Overall, the food seemed like bar food, which is not always bad, but we expected something else, and their advertising... More

This place is awesome. It is a little on the pricey side for the area, but the food quality and service is well worth it. There are plenty of new twists on classic Southern cooking. Make sure to stop by if you are in Starkville. I wish that I had a reason to go back to Mississippi just to eat... More

This restaurant has a great atmosphere. Please dress decently. The menu is extremely limited and over priced is an under statement. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. The food is not extrodinary as you would expect for the price. Its more of a wine place and not somewhere you would really want to take the kids although children are... More

to have Ty come to town. He is an excellent chef, and he and his staff do a great job. We are lucky -- in a small, Mississippi, college town -- to have a restaurant of this quality. It is awesome.

Restaurant Tyler is one of my favorite places to go with my wife. She loves their fried shrimp for a blue plate lunch. I love their chicken and waffle for brunch. The lunch and brunch are great prices for high quality food! The atmosphere is rustic and cozy in the main area, but it is a little dark upstairs. I... More

Restaurant Tyler is kind of an eclectic mix of southern dishes that they tried to add a little too much flair to (although sometimes it is effective). Their blue-plate specials are great and usually get you out for less than $10 (I think, can't quite remember). The food is almost always amazing (as long as the kitchen didn't decide it... More

We ate there during Bulldog Bash and the Shrimp and Grits were amazing! The service was wonderful. The prices were reasonable. We will be back!

I want to like Tyler; I really do. It's meant to be a nice restaurant. It's pretty inside. The menu focuses on local kinds of dishes and ingredients, but the experience is always lacking. First, there's the food, which is always so incredibly heavy. Too much cream; too much cheese; too much salt. It's a place that substitutes lots of... More
