Large variety of deli-type foods. They also have Hal's, which is a blue plate meal during the week. Service can be a bit slow at times, but the food has always been great!

Janie's Pastry Shop & Bakery

Reviewed By Holly W

Wow!!! Just like stepping back in time. From the vintage street signs advertising Janie’s to the red leather bar stools at the small round tables. The selection of sweets is fabulous! And everything we tried (we tried plenty) was delicious! The shapes iced cookies were a hit with all the kids on my son’s baseball team. The cinnamon rolls, no one can eat one alone, totally shareable! And the petite fours - must try!!! I hope to get back to Brookhaven soon so we can stop back by this great little bakery!

If you want some great grilled or fried food that is not your typical fast food, then this is a great place to go. Huge homemade hamburgers with large portions of fries

We had a large group and we enjoyed it. The food was great and I enjoyed the band playing, too. It was too noisy for visiting but would not have been if we had gotten there earlier.

Bowie Barbeque

Reviewed By Tim D - Dittmer, Missouri

This is a restaurant where you go through a line, you pick the Main entre and pick your sides, pay your bill and find a seat. It's a quaint little restaurant in a log cabin. Staff was super friendly and very southern. Extremely respectful. Just the right amount of food and it was excellent. It has a drive through if you need that. No alcohol served just soft drinks or water.

Well, this restaurant was in close proximity to my hotel, so we decided to eat both breakfast and dinner here. This is a friendly place, everyone is pleasant and appear to get the job done. Breakfast was awesome! Dinner was just good, the chicken and rice special could have been a little hotter. The other dish ordered was the rainbow trout and it was cooked to perfection. I believe a Joyce and Zanna were our waitresses, they both did an awesome job.

Betty's Eat Shop

Reviewed By John S - Monticello, Mississippi, Usa

This lovely dining establishment is tucked right next to the old Lofton's store by the railroad in downtown Brookhaven. I have eaten there twice now and I can honestly say that everything there has been impressive. From the lunch plates to the cheeseburger and fries to the short rib evening entree-man oh man-it's all great. The bar selections are right up there as well. Next time you're nearby stop in and pick something out, I bet you'll be glad you did.

After 850 miles of driving, this was an AMAZING stop!! Service... friendly!! Drinks...yum!! Food... fast and ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!! We had the pulled pork, small rib plate, fries, slaw, beans, mac, & fried cheese as an appetizer...JUST WOW!! Pork melted in your mouth like butter, and ribs fell right off the bone!

Where to start? Family environment with staff that makes you feel you are among old friends, you certainly don't feel like n outsider. best fried fish and shrimp I ever had. They make their own cocktail and tarter sauces as well as some dressings that are incredibly good. If you're ever in Brookhaven and you don't try this place you have missed out. My wife and I found by mistake on our way to New Orleans and would almost make the 12 hour drive again just to visit the Fish Fry.
