Diner Reviews
  • "Our waitress, Wisdom was good. The food was not. I ordered a redfish and it was so over cooked, I couldn't cut it with a fork. The ambiance could be cool, but they have clear plastic chairs that don't go with the brick wall and rustic look. It has potential but definitely needs some tweaking."

  • "Been there several times and each time food is fantastic. Service is typically friendly and efficient. Atmosphere and tables are weakest element, but if you are lucky you can get table that doesn't feel like its in the main walking path."

  • "Their fried and stuffed chicken was amazing! They were out of whole chicken but even with the chicken breasts it was delicious. The decor was very neat as well."

  • "Spent the July 4th weekend in Jackson. Finding a place to eat that was not fast food seemed impossible, then a local recommended Julep. Great food and service, the wait staff was there when you needed something but otherwise gave you space."

  • "Would have preferred going for chicken wings if that says anything. Food was decent but there are many cheaper, better alternatives. One person in our party ordered grilled chicken on their salad and got fried chicken. I ordered a beer that was on the menu and was told they did not have it and ended up having to ask for a list of what they had. I ordered a lager and got what looked like a Pale. The check was messed up and when they reran it it was messed up again so we just paid for some of the stuff the other couple got because I didn't feel like running it a third time."

  • "The fried chicken is listed as award winning and I wouldn't give it two thumbs up. The desserts were very good though."
    Dined on 5/12/2013
  • "We ordered a bottle of wine and the bartender said he couldn't find it. Our waiter went the extra step and looked himself and found it. I wish I knew his name. Burger was good but a little overdone. Strawberry salad was excellent."

  • "The mixed green salad, fried chicken and bread pudding all were excellent."
    Dined on 2/17/2013
  • "As always, wonderful food and a great time. the ONLY issue I had was that we were not aware the large cushy booths by the bar area are first come first serve. One sat vacant for almost 20 minutes while we waited on a table. I'll remember next time though :)"

  • "Julep is a great place for any occasion. Whether in the mood for brunch or a nice dress-up outing for dinner, Julep is the place to go. The menu selection is varied enough that anyone will easily find something that will delight. The prices are excellent, and the food portions are just right. Overall, Julep is a great place for anyone, anytime."

  • "Loved! I was so excited to takey family since they'd never been. Our table was ready upon arrival and not in the middle of the main space. Our server was attentive, knowledgable, and super friendly! It was an awesome birthday celebration!"
    Dined on 1/11/2013
  • "Good menu, with very good food. Our waiter was quite inexperienced, which resulted in some delay in ordering and some delay in having proper plates and utensils. Deserves a do-over. Suspect our experience will be much better."

  • "Steak Salad was not good - 4 thin strips of cold steak over what tasted like store bought greens and fake bacon bits. Too much cheap blue cheese - beer was cold though. Bartender kept sitting at tables with his friends - too much money for what I paid."
    Dined on 8/7/2012
  • "Fabulous food, great atmosphere and great waiters/hosts. Recommend if you're looking for good southern food late at night (as most neighborhood places will be closed after 8)"

  • "Loved the fried chicken. Green beans left something to be desired. Liked that they let me substitute the mashed potatoes for another side. Loved the clear chairs. Our waiter was very friendly and charming. Would go back if in the area again. (from another city)"

  • "The table was set up really beautiful, until the waiter took away the glasses before the rest of our guess arrived and brought up tacky foam cups. We were never served rolls. Serval people in our group including myself placed an order never received it! The only thing we got was the appetizers that we order earlier. We waited and waited on our food never got, so we didnt worry about because we all was dissappointed after waiting 35 minutes to find out that he just didnt place the order. I believe the waiter had to many tables including us (a party of 9). Maybe if he didn't have to many tables including another large group to wait on, our service would have been a whole lot better!"

  • "My husband and I were disappointed in the quality of our food. Shrimp toast as an apetizer - it was fair. My husband had your "Famous" fried chicken sandwich - nothing special - fried chicken on a bun. I had your "crawfish" etouffee - not good at all. Too much heat spice and NO flavor - very bland (blah) roux. I literally had to hunt to find any crawfish meat - what I did find was very tiny and could not have been more than a teaspoon full total. Fried green tomato garnish on top was okay. I wanted to tell the waitress how disappointed we were and to offer to teach the chef how to make killer etouffee, but, alas, my husband would not let me."

  • "The food was delicious but our waitress brought out our appetizer and then only about three minutes later our food! We weren't ready for that and so we felt a little rushed. It would have been perfect if she timed it all beter"

  • "I wasn't a fan of the clear plastic chairs for seating. The fries that came with my meal were lack-luster and soggy. Everything else was good!"
    Dined on 3/24/2012
  • "The staff was extremely accommodating and helpful. We had a party of 7 which made seating difficult, but they handled it well. The food was great. They have a wonderful selection of appetizers. The birthday (wedding cake) was fantastic! Thanks for being so friendly and helpful. We will be back!"
    Dined on 3/23/2012
  • "The menu and food were really good. It was so hard for us to decide what to order, there were so many wonderful things to choose from. The service was great and the staff was very friendly. The only problem was a screaming child, pitching a major fit in the first dining room. Everyone in the restaurant was disturbed. Probably an entire new clientele would have been gained had management asked them to leave. The mother was just sitting there watching the child kick and scream on the floor, while the other child went around to unoccupied tables scribbling on each one with a crayon."

  • "The food was perfectly prepared, visually pleasing, hot and delicious. The service was prompt and attentive. Well done!"

  • "The entire staff was extremely polite (better than any other restaurant I have been to), food was good, the atmosphere was great, and the prices are right on par. I was impressed with this restaurant, and will be making another trip there in the near future. I highly recommend Julep."

  • "We are from New Orleans and so are very spoiled by excellent local restaurants (read: hard to please). Our son has been attending Millsaps for two years and this is the first restaurant in Jackson that we have enjoyed. The food is original and delicious, the service is friendly and efficient (and they are also a diverse cast of characters which we from the Big Easy love!), and the atmosphere unassuming. A local gem for Jackson! We will be back for more!"

  • "Do not get the fish tacos. I have ate at the resturant countless times. Every experience up to this point was excellent! However, the fish tacos were horrible. My wife's fried chicken was excellent as always. Still highly recommend this resturant... Get the fried chicken and you can't go wrong."
