    We went there for Valentine's Day. We liked the atmosphere (they kept it dim and didn't overbook). They didn't really have a special V-day menu and the waiter didn't know his menu. My food was not good at all (Cajun steak with mashed potatoes and veggies). My steak wasn't good, the mashed potatoes were cold and bland, and the veggies were blah. My girlfriend had the opposite experience, she loved the duck( can't remember her side items ).

    I took my girlfriend here for a nice dinner we had reservations and it was really peaceful the waitresses weren't over bearing they kept our glasses full without us having to ask. It was a great atmosphere and it had a New Orleans French quarter feel. Good place to good. Amazing crab cake for the appetizer.

    I recommend this place to everyone. This was my first fine dining experience and it will not be my last. I took my boyfriend here for his 30th birthday and he absolutely enjoyed it. The atmosphere was perfect and the host was very welcoming. The waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and recommended perfect foods for us for the night. We had the shrimp and grits for an appetizer, lasagna and creole pasta for the entrees' and the white chocolate bread pudding for desert! Oh my goodness the shrimp and grits were fantastic and seasoned just right. The entrees were ideal, the lasagna had a great flavor and my boyfriend enjoyed his pasta. Saving the best for last, the Bread pudding was the big wow factor there are no words to explain.

    Dined on 8/16/2013
    Great place for casual drinks or a special dinner. Seafood is great, ribeye needs work. The only thing I would change is a better ribeye. The cut was too thin, they need to offer a thick cowboy cut or even a tomahawk. Can't find a good steak in this town - adding a signature piece of beef would turn this place into a destination restaurant. Overall though this place is great! I look forward to going again soon!

Food server was very accommodating, stating menu was only a recommendation but each item could be tailored to request. Food server was very knowledgeable of the menu and preparation.

    We really enjoyed our anniversary dinner with Walnut Circle and are appreciative that we used Open Table to make our reservations. This restaurant maintains a certain level of excellence in a town not known for high end dinner experiences. The service was warm and friendly and not overbearing. The food was prepared to our liking and was fresh and tasty. This was a big night for the restaurant as Southern Miss was having its' graduation ceremonies that day and Walnut Circle was in high gear to accommodate the large groups. They handled everything with professionalism and a smile. Well done. For those desiring to have a nice evening with your date/wife, you cannot go wrong with this restaurant.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 3/16/2013
    The food here was mediocre, at best. I got a salmon special which was very aggressively and unpleasantly spiced with clove and coriander, while my partner ordered a steak that was lacking in the most basic kiss of salt and pepper. Our side dishes were similarly unremarkable as we were served baby carrots which were unseasoned and virtually raw, and the mashed potatoes lacked the kind of richness a touch of cream and butter could have offered. The deserts on offer were also tired: we shared a chocolate ganache cake that was just OK, although it was probably the highlight of an unremarkable meal. For Hattiesburg, this is a beautiful space in a downtown area with a lot of potential; but our meal was just blah.

    Was good but not great. I think we may have caught them on an "off night". Big crowd and bit of noise coming from the bar towards the end of our dining experience. My 8oz filet was cooked to a perfect medium rare but it was a bit tough, lukewarm and dry. Smoked duck for the appetizer was good and so was the wilted spinach salad. Wine list probably adequate but not what I was expecting. Service started out a little slow but was very good once we got started. We will go back to dine here again at some point in the future.

    I did not know of this restaurant until I googled it, but my wife and I went here for a nice romantic dinner. We had a great experience with the food and atmosphere. Our waitor Johnathon was the best waitor we have ever had! I have never had my cup refilled as many times as he did it (cup was never at the halfway point). Even one lady who was not our waitress filled up my glass! Waitor was very knowledgeable of menu and very courteous. Food was exceptional and on the table in less than 30 minutes. It was a little heavy on the pocketbook, but well worth it considering that is what we were shooting for.
