The Manship Ratings and Reviews

This place is just plain fabulous. The chef/co-owner has just won a HUGE national (I think) award as Best Seafood Chef, and that is an understatement! We had the Murder Point (Alabama)broiled oysters on the half shell with a celestial treatment of ingredients and the special Gulf grouper with this divine treatment--corn, tomato, just a perfect combo of veg & seasoningsq. My son got the tiramisu, the hub got the peach panacotta. I took a bite of each, and was transported to dessert heaven! We ate early (like 6:00-6:15), which is a great time--restaurant about 1/3-1/2 full, bar very active, but not loud. As we sat and ate, the place totally filled up, but the service was great, noise level did not get bad, and I think we were signing the ticket about 1 1/2 hrs after we were seated. The other co-owner stopped & chatted with us (remembered our names), just as he did with every other table in the place. These guys have got the restaurant business nailed! Interior very welcoming, yet sophisticated; servers attentive & friendly.

We had a great time with friends. We sat at the last table in the restaurant near the kitchen. I had read some reviews that said it was too noisy...but it wasn't. It was fun to see the different dishes coming by and getting to talk to our waiter about the dishes. Our waiter was absolutely delightful. He was attentive but not obnoxious. The drinks from the bar are heavenly. If you like bloody marys, they make the best one I have ever had. The pork belly appetizer is unbelievably delicious.
We had the redfish which had been touted as fantastic. We were a little disappointed as it was a little dry. The sides, which are a la carte, were good, but a little salty. Overall though it was a great time.

Chef Alex Eaton recently won the Great American Seafood Cookoff held in New Orleans in early August. The food in his restuarant relfects his cooking prowess in every way. From a huge selection of side vegetable dishes to his Redfish prepared fisherman style you can't go wrong here. Everything is locally sourced and a large blackboard indicates the vendor and location. I highly recommend this place!

Excellent food choice and quality; have always liked the idea of local, Mississippi items being offered. Service was good, though at lunch the noise level was quite high. Was a business lunch, so important to be able to hear. Overall ambiance excellent. Idea of online booking convenient/time-saving...especially in today's hectic culture.

We have been here a couple times and the food is GREAT! The service is above and beyond. My only complaint is that we got sat all the way back towards the kitchen when the restaurant was not busy. Possibly because we had kids with us...possibly not, but either way they need some type of wall up between wait staff and tables there. It was almost like we were dining in the kitchen and pretty disruptive. Far more disruptive than the our kids tend to be in restaurants. Perhaps that was not it but based on the other families in the back section, it was a coincidence if not. Anyway, we will be back and I suppose ask to not be seated in the kitchen area lol

We read about Manship before our host recommended it, so we felt it was a good choice. It ended up being an excellent choice. We could hardly decide between items on the menu and ate so much we couldn't even consider dessert. We had mac-n-cheese, calamari, spinach, and pizza. Everything was really, really good- even the focaccia served with peppered oil to start was notably flavorful. Additionally, our server was great. Just the right amount of attention and laid back. Our greeting from the host stand when we entered was very underwhelming, but everything else more than made up for that. HIGHLY recommend The Manship and will go there again if visiting Jackson.

My sister and I came before the ballet she's not from Jackson the chef is a former student and and I was anxious to show him off and the food, fresh tomato salad, bread, lady peas and whole fish were outstanding. Wine helped in our choice by our great was perfect .
Just one thing The portions were so large we could have split them and been well satisfied Well done, Alex!

The Manship's menu and food never disappoint. At dinner recently we sensed our waiter was quite busy with many tables to serve--perhaps someone had not shown up for work at the last minute? The alert manager saw us hesitating and came over to talk with us, and we also saw him bussing tables. This kind of teamwork and kindness to customers reminds us why we want to go back to this great place.

We were hoping for a casual quiet atmosphere to conduct an informal business meeting, but we were seated near the kitchen and there was so much clatter that we had to yell to be heard. Our reservations couldn't be found when we arrived, so there was a scramble to seat us. The wine was great. We weren't real impressed with the food, either - especially the cheese tray and hanger steak. It's great for a different taste every now and then, but with everything a la carte, it really adds up.
Can't wait to go back!
My date and i had an amazing dinner at The Manship on Thursday June 2nd. We started out with the duck wings and pork belly appetizer, both of which were outstanding. The pork belly was served with a creamy polenta, and quite honestly, may have been the best bite of food I have ever eaten. FYI, I've been in the restaurant business for close to 20 years. For entrees my date and i split some rabbit ravioli and pork shoulder, both of which were on point. Joshua, our waiter, was great! we never lacked for anything, and his service was attentive but not intrusive. I would request him again when we go back. Oh and don't leave w/o trying the blueberry cobbler. perfect way to close out the meal. For you fans of wines and spirits, The Manship, has an outstanding wine selection, with some very interesting cocktails as well. can't say enough about our experience. Get there asap!

Best place in Jackson hands down! You really can't beat the food. It gets better and better every time we go. The spring onions are delicious! We love how the menu changes relative to what is in season and look forward to the specials. You can go wrong when choosing to dine here for lunch or dinner. Need to try out the breakfast, just heard about it!

Mushroom side dish was not good in my opinion. I like a lot of water with meals and I got thirsty three times, to the point that I had to stop eating my meal. I even asked if I could have two glasses, but was told they were NOT ALLOWED TO! Nearly $100 for two people. I don't plan to return.

My husband and I are regulars at Manship, and it's one of our favorite Jackson restaurants. I went with a couple of friends recently on a week night, and we all got the pizzas. The ingredients and selection are good, but this is the second time I've gotten a pizza with a burnt crust. The others were fine. I don't think I'll order another for a while, but that's okay, because the Duroc pork shoulder is always a great option.
