“OK food but the worse service”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

With to The Walnut Circle Grill with four other friends on Wednesday night arriving about 7:30. The restaurant was about half full with two large groups at two sets of tables and many other tables open 10 to 12. I asked for a table for 5 and was told by the young hostess that that would mean thay had to put two tables together and she did not know if they could do that. She told me to go sit at open seating at the bar ( where no seats were available). A few minutes later a group of 5 young guys came in and asked for a table. She had two tables pushed together and seated them immediately. After this, I asked her again for a table. She told me she would have to ask if it was OK. After 10 minutes and her talking to noone, we still were waiting ( about 30 minutes total now and were getting ready to leave).
A couple that we knew were leaving and told us we could have there small 4 seat bar table. When we sat at the table with 5 people packed in on a five foot round table and a borrowed fifth chair, the couple at the table next to us got up and offered us their table ( Very Nice). We had dinner on the two small tables with the bar tender serving us as well as he could with a busy bar, had to get up and get our own silverware, etc. The restaurant continued to have 10 to 12 open tables and by the time we finished dinner, it was almost empty.
We drove an hour to try the restaurant and this is how we were welcomed, it won't happen again. Many restaurants have good food but the way they treat customers makes the difference. There is no excuse for rude, noncaring service, having to beg for a seat in a half filled restaurent. I think the girl wanted the room empty at closing and sent us to the full bar for dinner not to have to serve us.
Final food, bread pudding tapas, was served cold. We metioned it to the bar tender and he did offer to heat it, but we were ready to get out of there by then. ( Shouldn't have had to ask to have it warmed).

Eat in Hattiesburg at least once a week. Many places in Hattiesburg with as good or better food that treat you as they care and want your business. Can't recommend the Walnut Circle Grill and will not return.

This is the real after work local hangout. Great service with a friendly atmosphere. Local singers add a down home feel. Enjoy.

“Good food and locale”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Hard to believe this restaurant is in the shell of an old creamery! The restoration was well done, resulting in a pleasant space, full of light! Lunch menu is good, with plenty of alternatives, great salads, and moderate prices; dinner menu can be a bit pricey by comparison to chains, but it is reasonable for an upscale restaurant. This is a good place to go if you actually want to hear what your dining companions are saying!!! Acoustics are the best in Hattiesburg! Staff is friendly, well informed about menu, and food is well prepared. Outside bar area is great for local music and specials on weekends; nice atmosphere and same food as inside, just less "formal".

“My favorite”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

It is the most romantic place for dinner! When you are celebrating something special, this is the place to go! It has a New Orleans feel to it. The food is VERY good. You have to try Mike's Shrimp Grits. It's listed as an appertizer, but I get it as a meal along with a fresh salad. It's truly delicious. The service is top notch. It makes for an unforgettable evening.
