My wife and I started with cocktails in the Library Bar in this beautiful old mansion. Great drinks and service. The dining room was quiet and open. The antelope and redfish were excellently prepared and presented. We would definitely go there again.

Was there recently for lunch with friends. Brand new menu. The veal meatloaf was wonderful. Always have excellent service and I feel the atmosphere is perfect for any occasion. Life slows down here and let's you enjoy the full dining experience. From appetizers to dessert the food is divine!!!

Took our daughter and her husband there for lunch and again after her swearing in ceremony for the MS Bar. Was very nice and had a special feel. Food was good and wait staff excellent. The grounds offered great surroundings for the many pictures we snapped of her special day.

Took my wife there for a birthday brunch, and it was awesome. Really good food and a great price. Great service, too. I would love to take her again.

Nice modern décor without being ultramodern. First visit. Fabulous food, attractively presented. Good service. Moderate prices.

Many restaurants these days in Jackson have a lot of hard surfaces, over-blown back ground music trying to create a vibrant atmosphere. 1908 Provisions is nicely designed with soft surfaces and a quiet atmosphere that allows you to hear your dining guest and enjoy one another's company.

The food was superb and sharing a cocktail and wine list with The Library bar next door gives 1908 a step up from other restaurants.

The service is second to none.

We will definitely be back.

Our food was excellent - different from the normal. We sat out and enjoyed cocktails under the oak tree- was delightful!

We really enjoyed the variety of food on the Sunday brunch, especially the wide array of vegetable and other healthy options. Our only concern was how closely spaced the tables were, especially along the bench/booth area.

A perfect mix of menu, service and ambiance. The best place in Jackson to show visitors how "classy" the South can be.

I created my own vegetarian platter selecting from a wonderful and unique selection of side dishes. It was great! Looked like an inviting list of entrees too.

What a wonderful meal. The menu is inventive. The items are ones you could only find there, and their blending of flavors was amazing. The Fairview Inn is such a gem and this restaurant is the crown jewel. My "French Laundry" salad rocked, and I'm not a big fan of many fish dishes but I was envious of the Red Fish dish my companions. got.

We bring friends from out of town here for the fine dining. They were kind enough to hold our reservation as our friends were stuck in traffic. The food is fabulous. We had redfish and it just shined with flavor and texture - cooked perfectly! The cocktails and Meiomi was delicious also. Shannon our server was excellent and handled all our requests extremely well.
I definitely will recommend to others and will return with more friends. Glad we have 1908 in Jackson.

We were seated at a very small wobble table with no table cloth. There was a big fan of AC blows cold air directly over our heads, makes the warm dishes turn cold very quickly. The food was not bad. We wanted to have a very chic lunch in a very classic southern plantation-style of house. The tasteless deco of this restaurant kind of throw us off. The young waitresses were very pleasant, but were obvious lack of experiences.

Have been to the old restaurant at the Fairview (Sophia's) and it was old and outdated. Provisions was great!! A much needed change and addition to the Fairview. Our waiter, the food and the ambiance were all fantastic! Highly recommend it.

4th visit for brunch. Everyone enjoyed it but the selection Sunday was very limited on meat. The overall feeling of the group is that we will return but the food selection needs to excpand. Great Atmosphere!

A wonderful and nostalgic place in the heart of Jackson's best neighborhood.
We are regulars at the Library bar and decided to have a birthday dinner for my fiancé.
The food and atmosphere was amazing!
The only negative thing about the night was that they turned up the dining room lights while we were still eating our meals at 9:15...
But overall the food, service and atmosphere could not have been better.
We love this place and will continue to frequent it!

1908 Provisions remains one the best restaurants in central Mississippi, or the entire state for that matter. Food is always exquisite and pertfectly prepared, and is just plain good. Great place for a business lunch (folks are always impressed), and the brunch is the best--always fresh, great presentation--what else can I say? Prices are reasonable, but you know, you get what you pay for! A taste of Southern elegance like nothing else.

I was visiting Jackson from Oregon and found this to be a great venue for our group of seven. The lovely atmosphere combined with delicious cuisine made for a perfect Southern luncheon.

If you really want to make that special someone happy, or just to impress a client, 1908 Provisions is definitely the place to be. With its warm and inviting atmosphere, you feel as if you are in your own private dining, with made to order cuisine. The food was second to none. The service was impeccable. When I want to be impressive, this is where I will be ...every time!

1908 has transformed it self into a fantastic dining experience. The newly remodeled restaurant shimmers with relaxed sophistication, down to the tiniest detail. The menu invites and entices with mouthwatering selections.

Restaurant is lovely and service staff well trained and attentive. The food was disappointing in its overall blandness and options. A wonderful setting for a family brunch, but not for culinary experiences, recognizing its buffet style.

We left after 40 minutes. We had reservations for 6 for very special occasion. We wqere promptly seated. Waitress filled water glasses.Took drink orders, explained a few things on menu. We ordered 5 cocktails and ordered two appetizers to be shared. Literally our waitress went behind a black curtain that was covering French doors. We noticed bartender disappeared too. Then next time we saw our waitress, she was serving wine to table in front of us who were seated after us after young man complained. We didn't receive an ice cube. No one explained there was a problem. We probably would have had a 400$ Dinner. It was obvious owner was not there. Now it's 8 pm and we end up in pub. Suspect waitresses had to serve an event at Inn also. Shame

This was a perfect place for a Mother's Day lunch. The buffet was very good as usual and service was good. We were seated at our reservation time.

It was a very pleasant Mother's Day Brunch. I appreciate the fact of not having to wait in line somewhere to eat out on a day I don't want to cook! The food, service and atmosphere was great, and look forward to returning sometime soon!

1908 Provisions was a great experience. The Fairview Inn itself is amazing. The food was incredible - unique twists on southern staples. The restaurant itself is not very bug, which I think is a plus. It's not overcrowded and bustling with people. You get devoted servers who aren't running all over the place. We had a large group, so we were probably noisy but it did't feel uncomfortable being a little loud. The restaurant is quiet, but not a deafening silence.

This was our first time at 1908 Provisions and we were very pleased. The doctor is well done, the service excellent and the food puts it at the top of Jackson restaurants. This fits well with the Fairview Inn and is a place we'll definitely come back to. I had the amberjack special which was cooked properly and an excellent dish. My son had the sweet potato crusted redfish which he raved about. This is a nice addition to Jackson's dining scene.

Wonderful atmosphere! Delicious food-love the beet salad and the ice cream was delicious! Fish is excellent. French press coffee was a nice ending to a special evening.
