Mississippi restaurants have a reputation for down-home Southern cooking, fine dining and everything in between. In Oxford, you can have a Southern blue plate lunch, followed by an upscale dinner at a restaurant on the Square. Be sure to sample the culinary offerings in Jackson, whether you’re looking for fine dining, barbecue or food truck fare. Don’t miss a stop in Hattiesburg to try the chef’s tasting menu at a restaurant run by beloved chef Robert St. John. Make your way to the coast and enjoy seafood caught fresh from the Gulf at the restaurants on the Mississippi Seafood Trail. Throughout the state, you’ll find a variety of places to raise a glass, including pubs, sports bars and upscale lounges. Cheers!
