“Fun Atmosphere, Generous Portions, OK Food”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

To be honest, after a late lunch, we weren't really that hungry but had heard a lot about this place from locals. As mentioned in almost every review on this page, the neighborhood has gotten scary over the years (as has much of Jackson). We did see blue lights racing by a few times during our meal. However, this family place has a comfortable ambiance. Nothing fancy. Service is prompt and friendly. Portions are huge. If you aren't terribly hungry, I would recommend splitting an entree. We ordered the lump crabmeat but wound up with the fish/crabmeat/shrimp combo for the same price (this happens a lot I gather). The Greek salad with comeback sauce (the ubiquitous sauce of Jackson) was good. The fish was white and flaky with lots of crabmeat on it. It had a good texture and was obviously fresh but it tasted a little "fishier" than I like. The Greek veggies side was way overcooked. The baklava dessert was different than any other baklava I've ever had and actually quite good. The owner is a character and very friendly. Yes, he does go around saying "God Bless America!" Overall, it was a fun place for a casual dinner with friends. The ambiance is fun and local, the food OK, Overall, it falls somewhere between Average and Very Good. I would give it three and a half dots if I could.

“Great Food”
Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

The food is great here. They have great seafood. Their salad dressing is awesome. The prices are very reasonable. The location is pretty bad, but the owners are very nice, accomodating people.

“God Bless the USA! - Bill”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Nothing special in looks or style, but the food is good and its a pretty popular place with the locals. The owner likes to yell "God bless the USA!". He's always really loud, but I ignore it because the servers are nice and the food is decent. I've only been for lunch and can't imagine hanging out in the area for dinner.

Worst location in Jackson. Food is great. I have been going there since it was Bill's Burger House. It was good then, better now. Fish is cooked perfectly and the owner is a blst.
