You’ve either decided to host a glorious event like a wedding, birthday, office party, and so on, or you’ve lost some sort of bet and are now forced to host a glorious event like a wedding, birthday, office party, and so on. Either way, you’ve got a lot of work ahead of you. And no matter what the event is, you’d better believe that the one thing that your guests are going to remember is the food. For example, half of the reason that in-laws show up to a wedding is that there’s going to be food there. No lie. Julep can promise you the Perfect Food for the Perfect Occasion.

A midsized group, we had a fantastic time. Food was awesome and service was good. Even with two small kids the atmosphere was pleasant.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Year after year, this restaurant continues to please us. The menu could use updating more often, but the service and atmosphere are in-line with the price and value of this noted establishment.
