Diner Reviews
  • "I attended the venue for my pre birthday gathering. The waiter was somewhat attentive to me, but my guest felt that he was unfriendly and inattentive. When I brought this matter to his attention, I was told that his service was a matter of "perception". The live band did not start on time due to some issues with the drummer. The food & drinks were subpar, as I was told that several food items on the menu were "out" ..even things as simple as salads etc. The door attendant did not seem friendly either. Other than the nice appearance of the place, it was not a very pleasant experience over all. I would not recommend this venue for a "go to" dining experience."

  • "The food looks much better than it tastes. Had one of the specials. Looked like food from Parlor Market. Tasted like food from Char--way too much salt. Next time I'll just get the standard pub grub."

  • "Our favorite spot in Jackson to meet others for an intimate, laid back entertaining experience. Live music and drinks...good food. What's not to like."

  • "As I proceeded down the narrow stairway into the heart of Jackson nightlife I wasn't sure what I would be stumbling out of or if I'd be able to make it back up these stairs at all. 119 underground is possibly the finest hangout in Jackson (turns out there is a back enterance with no stairs to combat). The scotch selection is stellar and the culinary delight that was the Rejebian grilled cheese changed my life. Everyone should try it. The swords make all the difference."

  • "If the right band/artist is in you can have a wonderful evening. We danced the night away. The food was good and the drinks were great!"

  • "First time in Jackson and could not have had a better night. Food was excellent, Music was very good and we met some really nice people. Thw single most important factor which contributed to the evening was our waitress - Zakeira - nothing was too much trouble and she made everyone feel that they were her special friend. She also recommended some nice beers. Whatever her recipe is you should bottle it. It will make you a fortune! Cannot fault anything. Graham and Patricia"

  • "This was a great restaurant for its atmosphere. I felt like the menu was very limited, though. I had the quail and it was bland, but I loved the veggies and rice that came with it."

  • "Food was great as always. We loved everything we ate. The music was outstanding. The band was very entertaining and played some really good, original music. The service was a little slow, but it looked as though there were only 2 servers in the place. It appeared as if they were understaffed that night. For the most part, we didn't mind the service as it gave us a chance to talk and enjoy the music."

  • "The good and atmosphere were great, but we waited for 45 minutes for our waiters to take our drink order and then another 20 minutes to get the actual drinks. If I could guarantee that we would not have the same waitress them I would probably go back, but she was literally horrible. Also, a homeless man came up to my table and asked me for some money.this wouldn't have been a huge deal but I was inside the restaurant. They got the police quickly but it was still a little awkward during my dinner."

  • "After having been at Undergroung 119 on a trip through Mississippi last year I knew that I would come back. This year me and my wife (we are from Germany) are travelling all over the South, and I made a point of visiting Jackson, MS, to have an evening at the place. And they didn´t disappoint. Had a great evening with my wife, who was also impressed. Everybody was extremely hospitable, the crowd was very heterogenous (is that a word? :) ), food and drinks were fantastic, and the band (King Edward) rocked the place."

  • "I believe we received the last serving of gumbo bottom of the pot, but the flavor was excellent so no real complaints other than it was mostly roux, spices & rice. The shrimp poboy was out of this world! The entertainment (Jarekus Singleton) was phenomenal and the atmosphere was superb! The staff was very friendly and attentive. We will be returning very soon!"

  • "Very, very disappointed that the evening entertainment did not show and we weren't told until it was performance time. We made reservations for food and lodging because of entertainment & drove 4 hrs. Overall good place for unique eats and drinks."

  • "My husband and I had a wonderful time. The scallop appetizer was very good. He had the Amberjack special and loved it. I had the 5 oz. filet...I had ordered it med rare and it came med well. I told the server, but did not send it back. The mashed white veggies underneath were flavorful and I could eat just a bowl of those. The atmosphere is laid back and lively all at the same time. Our server, Ashley, was fantastic. As the night progressed and the place got busier, service did slow down, but it was not a problem. We were not in a hurry! We plan on making Underground 119 one of our regular stops."

  • "The atmosphere was great! The food was not good enough to warrant the cost. The appetizers were subpar and members of my party couldn't stomach the pasta dish. So eat before you go!"

  • "I really enjoy the ambiance the band was great and the service was very good but the food left a little to be desire the gumbo was ok at best. My wife had the jambalya and it had no favor and the sausage was paper thin need least to say no doggie bag required for that. I myself had the shrimp and grits the tomato base sauce was as thick as the grits dthe the favor was there. Having said all that I will return FYI revamp the menu and drop the fine dining aspect and stick to the bar food but keep the wine list"

  • "The food and service were great. Certainly a place I'll be returning to. Make sure to get there to try the Frito Chili Pie before it's gone from the menu."

  • "Great date spot! If you're going on a first date or have a milestone to celebrate, then this is the spot for you. The music really makes it a favorite spot of mine. I love live music (there's a piano player) as there's usually a band that plays at 9 PM. I tried the steak and it was amazing! Great taste and it needed absolutely nothing added. I didn't enjoy the mashed potatoes and green beans that much, but they weren't horrible."

  • "Amazing!!! Will be back. I came with a bridal party for some bachelorette fun. I made a mistake and made the online reservation for two instead of ten. But the wonderful staff at Underground 119 took care of us and put together a table for us (even though they were packed and it was MY mistake.) They made the bride feel extra special! Highly recommended!"
