Best American Restaurants in Jackson
Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
Jackson's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
The food was delicious. The menu is frequently changing which is fun because there are always news dishes to try. The staples like the fried chicken and catfish are out of this world and worth the drive from Jackson. Sunday nights are really fun because there is always live music and it’s very family friendly. Sitting on the porch is great in moderate temperatures. MoreOpenTable Diner -
