“Good menu one of the best in Jackson”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

4 plates of fried chicken for the table, menu looked great wished we would of found this restaurant a little sooner. Fried chicken is different, but in a good way. It has a honey glaze to it, which is a little on the sweet side but very good.
Very popular hang out.

“Good dish and dessert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

I loved the shrimp and grits dish. However, my favorite dish was the catfish taco with the strawberry pecan salad. I topped it off with a slice of Bailey's irish cream cake. The slice was a nice size and very rich. The dessert was expensive. The strawberry cake it good there too.

“Fantastic Restaurant in Jackson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. The food here is vastly varied and delicious. Known for its fried chicken, nearly everything on this menu is good. Both dinner and brunch offer excellent options. The speciality cocktails are creative and fun. There are several different types of martinis that should absolutely be tried, especially the wedding cake martini.

This restaurant is excellent regardless of if you sit at the bar or in the restaurant. Julep usually gets crowded quickly - so get there early to ensure a good seat!

“Fried Chicken”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Seriously. Get the fried chicken. Don't go there for anything else. Order the fried chicken. If you don't like it, I'll refund your money!

“Good food, casual atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

We picked Julep because of its proximity to a function we were schedule to attend nearby. We were not disappointed. My "catch of the day" (mahi mahi) was wonderfully seasoned with a spicy cajun sauce. The only downside was the portion side, which could have been a bit larger for the price. My wife had the "famous" fried chicken, which she also reported to be very good. Key lime pie for desert was on the average side, but didn't detract from the overall menu. Wait staff was attentive, if a bit terse. The ambiance was nice, a bit upscale yet casual. But, the facility is starting to show a little wear, and probably will be do for an overall freshening sometime soon.
