“Great hidden jewel!”
Reviewed April 1, 2011

This bar and grill is slightly hidden off the street, you walk down a wide alley (called THE ALLEY, by signage). The Alley is located across from the old court house. The atmosphere is very local. When you enter the bar is to the left and there are probably about 10-15 tables on the right side. The walls are red with brick accents and black bead board for the ceiling. The special is written on a chaulk board on the wall across from the door. I had the special which was Chicken pot pie with salad and my husband had a burger. The chicken pot pie was good (the filling was in a low bowl with a crescent type square in center of filling) and my husband burger was AWESOME! I had to try it and wished I would have gotten it instead. With the burger you can get up to three types of cheeses, grilled onions and mushroom plus the normal add ones like lettuce, bacon, etc (for no additional charge). Salad was very fresh. Dessert was free with lunch special which was Red Velvet Cake that day. Waitress was nice (although busy) and even talked a little to us afterwards about how we heard about the place. We definitely plan on going back to try their Saturday Brunch she told us about which features omlettes, pancakes and mimosas! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

“The food is great, but the service is totally iffy.”
Reviewed July 29, 2010

The Stables understands good food. A burger there is like a gourmet meal. The salads are hearty and fresh. The plate lunch specials are great. Unquestionably good food at very good prices.

The atmosphere is very bar/sports grill. Tupelo has a smoking ban, but somebody either forgot to tell The Stables, or else their ventilation system is really not working. ;)

The service varies wildly from day to day. Some days you can feel like the most valued patron on the planet, and other days you're not sure whether you wandered into a restaurant or an S&M joint. It's not even a problem with a specific server -- the same server can vacillate from Tinkerbell to Beelzebub in the course of a meal.

So, be prepared for whatever comes. Your service may be great, or it may stink, but your food will always be excellent.

Try the catfish nachos!

It's a small bar, but has great food. The lunch specials are always good, but can never go wrong with a burger or salad.
