Our favorite place to eat in Jackson. Have ate here many, many times and food is always well prepared and service excellent. Tuesday is senior discount night and Wednesday is all you can eat pasta.

The waitress was very attentive. Serving sizes were small. Portabella mushroom sauce was very salty. We used to love it here, don't know about the current chef though.

I enjoy this restaurant a lot. The food is always tasty and the menu does change up occasionally. Their ministroni soup is so good. They serve the salad family style with these incredible mini rounds bead loafs. Nice variety too.

We eat at Strings a lot. Always good food and great value. Ask for senior discount 15% off bill. Their salads and pizza bread are to die for. Some of the best Alfredo Sauce around.

It's not the atmosphere; it's the food. Strings like a diner, clean, all fine; but not the fine Italian restaurant with the white table clothes and candles of the movies! But the food is really good. My husband savored an all-meat calzone and took half home for the next day's lunch. I had seafood fettucine and did the same, really... More

Recently, we dined at our local Strings Restaurant and found it to feature excellent food. In the past, their delicious bread was always accompanied by olive oil and balsamic vinegar dipping sauce. We didn't get any and noticed that some other diners had some. Apparently, now diners must request the dipping sauce which we did. (this isn't spelled out anywhere... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and keep returning because we like the place very much. The stuffed mushrooms are always a must for us. We have tried several of the pasta dishes and found them all very good. I love their salad, my husband likes the soup. The bread is like an over sized roll that is... More

My family goes to this Strings location often and I am always pleased. The service is very good. They serve the salad family style and it is very good. It is a creamy tangy italian dressing and all you can eat as well! I recently tried a new dish they offered called Baked Chicken Alla Panna. It is a Marinated... More
