Mark and Mary Shapley began this dining tradition in 1985 and soon became one of the premier restaurants in the state. After taking a break to raise their two girls, they have returned with the same great food and service everyone came to know. Great steaks and seafood along with their famous tamales are still the main attraction along with an impressive bar and wine offerings. Please come by and see for yourself how special this restaurant is. We were recently voted 'Best Fine Dining' by the readers of Mississippi Magazine

40th anniversary dinner with limited options due to COVID19 restrictions but MMShapley’s is always a favorite; never disappoints. Food was delicious as always. Dean, our waiter was very nice, appropriately attentive and efficient. We had to wait about 20 minutes after our reservation time. Not a big deal but stood in lobby with another party who we ended up sitting across from in dining. They were 2 women, dressed rather inappropriately for dinner at a nice place but were constantly on their phones FaceTiming people on speakerphone so that was a downside to the evening.

The food was amazing, the service was exceptional and the atmosphere of the restaurant was great. There are small divider walls between the tables which allow for the setting to be a little more secluded and blocks out the overall noise of the restaurant.

I treated my wife to Shapley's for her birthday last week. We have dined at Shapley's on special occasions in the past and were never disappointed. She selected the Redfish topped with jumbo lump crabmeat as her entrée and I had the 10 ounce filet. We shared an order of creamed spinach with our entrees. Our server, Chelsea, did a fantastic job making our special occasion even more "special".

The steak with mushrooms was excellent. Their frenchfries are the best . The bread pudding topped it all. Expensive but worth it. I will do it again.

We had both eaten at Shapley’s before, but not since the family took it over again. It was amazing! We had an appetizer portion of eggplant parmesan that was delicious! The eggplant was grown in their onsite garden! The tamales, creamed spinach, and porterhouse were perfect! The waitstaff was very attentive, complete with suggestions, and they comped the dessert with a candle for my fiancé’s birthday! I highly recommend!

My wife and I went for our Anniversary, it was our first time as regular guests but we had our son's wedding rehearsal dinner there last year. We came back becouse the service was amazing in every way at the rehearsal dinner and was every bit as good while dining as a couple! You must go! it is absolutely wonderful in every way! Steak's were perfect, even with a special request from my wife... PERFECT!

We were a party of 4 and have enjoyed eating at MM Shapley's several times. Our table enjoyed the Ribeye, NY Strip and Filet in addition to creamed spinach and dessert (split). Each steak was cooked exactly as ordered, wonderful crust, tender, great flavor and served hot in there amazing juice/sauce. The servers were professional and took care of our table without being bothersome. Each dish is just exactly as it should be from the steaks to french fries, salads (wedge is excellent)to the fantastic lemon ice box pie. The owners Mark and Mary Shapley were in the restaurant on a Wednesday night that we were there. I believe there attention to each detail is what makes it such a special experience.

Great experience.My wife and I had had decided to dine out and try a local restaurant. The food was cooked perfectly to our request. We had both ordered filet mignon at different temperatures which they cooked perfectly. For me, I like a medium filet and I a hard time finding anyone who can get it "just right". We also order the asparagus, potatoes au gratin, and had some fries which seemed like they were homemade. We did order dessert, champagne, and coffee, all which were up to par. We wished they would have had a little selection of coffees or espresso, nonetheless, it did not make the meal any less enjoyable. The staff was attentive, courteous, and friendly ensuring at all times ensuring we had everything needed for our great dining experience. Wil(our server) did an excellent job taking care of us. The additional staff that brought us replacement silverware and refilled our glasses were also great. Our table was divided by "mini walls" as it seemed like many were, that we enjoyed because it gave is a sense of privacy and intimacy. It allowed us to enjoy our meal without the interruption of the "busy traffic" of restaurant. The ambience was nicely done. The restrooms were clean and above expectations with a nice modern theme to match the business. We did not feel rushed through our meal which is a large factor in enjoying the meal, I believe. Highly recommended for any occasion. I would suggest making reservations, for it seemed to become busy as we progressed through our meal and left for the restaurant that evening. We had made reservations for a Saturday evening.

We have dined here for 30+ years and never had a bad experience. The steaks are always flavorful, perfectly cooked & melt in your mouth. The seafood options are excellent as well. This is a family owned restaurant & you can always tell they take great pride in what they do. They are currently growing fresh vegetables right outside the restaurant for nightly specials & the garden is beautiful. It doesn’t get any better.

We celebrated our 46th anniversary here. The main dining room is somewhat noisy so I requested a table in one of their private dining rooms and we were the only customers in that room, so the atmosphere and lack of noise made the evening delightful.
Food was good, service good and the owner came into the room and asked us how we liked the meal as we were finishing.
