This hasn't been too helpful. Surely someone can offer some good places to eat!

Either that or there is really no good places to eat.
I mean they got chain restaurants like chillies and steak houses but none of them really offer anything special or extravagant.

Alright, the best place by far to eat in jackson is definitely the Mayflower. Its downtown on capitol street, and its moderately expensive. Good places for music and food are; hal and mal's, Martin's, underground 119, 930 blues cafe, and sometimes finegans pub. Some fance restaurants are chaplet's, nick's, walker's, ruth's chris steak house, and a more "hip" restaurant is mint. also another good one that cheap, that also has heavenly food is kiefers.

If you're looking for an excellent steak, I would suggest that you go and check out the restaurant in Jackson called Char. I will warn you, though, that it is rather expensive. If you're looking for a more laid back atmosphere, I would recommend Julep, a restaurant that is located almost directly next to Char.

For impeccably good Italian food, look no further than Amerigo. Amerigo has an excellent assortment of food to choose from, and the service is superb. Amerigo is located on Old Canton Road in Ridgeland.

Good luck, and I hope that this list may serve as useful!

Wait a minute, The Mayflower is definitly Authentic Jackson food and tasty; however, you can not go to Jackson without going to Stamps Super Burger!! I'm all about eating at the most authentic place in the city, a place that makes me feel like I had the best food, bbq, burger in town and unfortunitly it's not available elsewhere. Stamps is that place! Not just the best burger anywhere but the best Jackson cultural experiance. Mayflower offers all this as well but Stamps is a place I still talk about years later. If you go to Chili's or if that was the type of recomendation you were looking for, then I would not want to travel with you. If you are a senior, then no offence. I understand and love seniors. If you're are an adventurer and really enjoy great places that are one of a kind, Stamps Super Burgers! I can't dissmis the Mayflower recommendation tho.

I've met some Jacksonians who like to think Jackson is a foodie kind of town. Well, it ain't. Jackson is a restaurant/fine dining desert.

Bon Ami is one of the better places, although I here he is closing up shop.

Char, while good, is overpriced for its fare.

I hear Nick's is good although I haven't been there myself to verify.

Mayflower is also good.

But as the people who would dine -- not the people who just "go out 'n eat" -- head to the safety of Rankin and Madison Counties and leave Souf Detroit (aka "Jacktown" or Jackson) you can look for Jackson's menu of restaurants to have many fewer choices.
