A great and convenient place to eat if you're staying at the Shack Up Inn, or coming in the evening for some live music. The food's cooked ready, and served instantly to you; we had the tamales and nachos which were both really good. The portion of nachos was enormous! The menu had just a few choices, all sounded great.... More

Food here seems to be mostly an after thought. There is a pork sandwich and a tamale plate. They were both good, but not something I would go out of my way for.

You drive deep into the country to get here. Don't lose faith. Keep going! The food was fantastic The decor is memorable We ordered catfish and grits and other stuff and everything was really really delicious. The desserts alone were worth the drive! Just order whatever they recommend and you won't be led astray.

Our room was great, our food was great and we bought the CD from the band cuz they were good too!!! In the building business, love the left over parts that have been passed on to become something else.

I ate there the other night and had the pork, black eyed peas, slaw with homemade relish TACO'S. I only have one phrase"Out Of This World" OOTW! The next afternoon I had the gourmet BBQ sandwich yum,yum,yum with some hot tamale. They have a good beer selection. Even tho I'm a Stella man, I tried a few different ones

Absolutely unique in terms of location and atmosphere. Restaurant and bar in the 'Juke chapel' has a good stage and the venue hosts live music most nights. The menu however was rather limited.

I was in Clarkesdale for 6 days, Adding the meal options has enhanced an amazing location. Food options are not extensive but was is offered is very good. The service allows you to mix and match some of the menu choices. Possibly a downside is they only offer a Wednesday to Sunday service for dinner and no breakfast. But Hey,... More

Located at the Shack Up Inn where we stayed. We ate as a courtesy our first night. Then returned our last. Meals were excellent. They offer beer only, but you may bring anything else. The chef is the real deal. The Mississippi catfish is outstanding. If you are staying elsewhere, you should have dinner here.
