Top 5 Date Night Spots in Central Mississippi

Having a new addition can be TOUGH on a relationship. No sleep, showering once a week sometimes, getting spit up on every outfit you own. Who said parenting was graceful? Whoever said it- was wrong. Parents need time to themselves after the birth of a baby too! Here are my Top 5 Date Night Restaurants in Central Mississippi for when Grandma and Grandpa offer to babysit!

1) The Cultivation Food Hall: 1200 Eastover Drive, Suite 125, Jackson, Mississippi 39211

I know for a fact when I am busy and haven’t gotten to go out in a while, THE LAST THING I want to do is argue with my husband about what kind of food I want! The food hall solves that problem! There is a great bar, a coffee shop and 7 Restaurants to choose from all with different kinds of food! Your significant other can get a Pastrami Sandwich and you can get a Pizza. Can we say win win???

2) Walker’s Drive-In: 3016 North State Street, Jackson, Mississippi 39216

Are you a huge foodie? Walker’s is a 1950’s Diner that brings all the nostalgia back with great lunch specials and an AMAZING Dinner Menu! My favorite place for high end, high quality food in Jackson. The chef, Derek Emerson is a James Beard Finalist and has been written about extensively in publications nationwide! Walking around Fondren is always a fun addition after we come here as well!

3) Saltine: 622 Duling Avenue #201 Jackson, Mississippi 32916

Oysters anyone?? Perfect cross between seafood and good old southern home cooking! Great atmosphere and a great location central to just about everything. Definitely another Fondren Favorite! Bonus- their cocktail menu is pretty awesome for that first post-baby indulgence!

4) The Manship: 1200 North State Street #100, Jackson, Mississippi 39202

I am a sucker for wood-fired anything. At The Manship- they have wood-fired EVERYTHING. Looking for an amazing steak with appetizers and dessert? Maybe a cocktail or two? This place is a winner! Environment is pretty great too! Boasting the largest selection of wine and spirits in Mississippi AND a great Happy Hour- this one is an awesome date night option. Like Brunch? They have you covered there too!

5) Shaggy’s On The Rez: 1733 Spillway Road, Brandon, Mississippi 39047

Love eating on the water? Missing the beach? Want good seafood? Shaggy’s is your answer! With a great view of the Ross Barnett Reservoir, you can get some killer seafood here in a low key environment if you aren’t looking for something too fancy! If you have been to Shaggy’s in Pass Christian, Biloxi, Pensacola, or Gulfport, this is the newest addition for the chain of restaurants! Check it out!
