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

Felt like I was eating in a doctor's office, the layout was strange. Food wasnt worth the cost, and was very disappointed that a $45 steak came with fries. Just my opinion, I would rather spend my money elsewhere.

This was my first time at Shapley’s. I had heard good things about this restaurant, so for our 10 year anniversary, we decided to try it. Our server was Will S. He was a greater server! He was attentive, thoroughly explained the specials, and made sure our food was cooked the way we requested. This was a great first experience, and I definitely will be returning!

Excellent experience. Our food was all very special from the homemade salad dressing to the perfect steaks served on a hot plate.
Service was very professional. Took great care of us without being bothersome. The owners were present in the Resturant and made us feel very special.

It was absolutely wonderful! I heard about this restaurant from my nutrition professor and convinced my boyfriend to take me out to dinner. We ended up having the best time laughing and talking the night away. Great atmosphere and even better food!

Excellent food and great atmosphere. Quiet enough to have a normal conversation but enough people and energy to make it fun. The owner, who is also the Chef, grows a garden on the property and serves the veggies with the meal. The Eggplant Parmesan is awesome. Get you some hot tamales,a steak, wine and its a fantastic meal. Highly Recommend it to anyone.

Everything was excellent other than air conditioner blowing across table so I was rather cool...and concerned my food would get cold.

Ordered New York Strip - nice cut of meat, but it was overcharred/burnt during the sear and then misread during the oven finish, which gave me a raw center with nothing but charred seasoning for flavor. Waitress quickly resolved the undercook, but there was no fixing the overzealous sear. Co-diner got the Redfish, which was also a bit overcooked. Everything else - toppings, sides (notable exception being the fries which were overseasoned), deserts - were all well executed. Unfortunately, I concluded that I could have gotten much better meals from one of the mainstream steak shops for substantially less than $100. Hopefully this was just an off-day - hard to reconcile my experience with so many others who had better. Might give it another try at some time in the future.

The food was excellent. I also loved the garden out front. Our waiter was extremely nice. We had just learned of son's best friend's death and I told the waiter and he was so sympathetic and really seemed to care.

One of the best filets I've ever had, Marinated crab claws were outstanding as well as the sides. The chocolate cheesecake was off the Richter scale and the wine selection was more than adequate.

The absolute BEST OF THE BEST! I was just in Jackson working for one day and found this on Open Table & decided to give it a try! Boy, am I glad I did! Service and good some of the BEST I have ever had anywhere in the United States! Their filet and crab stuffed shrimp- Yum...and their homemade Parmesan Peppercorn Bacon Dressing is positively addictive! If I’m ever back in Jackson, I will definitely return! Thank You!
