Hey Joe's Records and Cafe

Reviewed By breeland

Such a cool, unpretentious place. I've been here at least 10 times and have always had a good experience. Great hamburgers! The Hey Joe Burger and the Kevin Bacon are my favorite. Very consistent, friendly hangout.

The Warehouse

The Warehouse is in a large 1901 former grocery warehouse on Sharpe Street that has been carefully restored to close to its original state with a rustic wood interior decorated with architectural salvage like old doors, vintage signs, a real traffic light and movie posters. In 2002 it opened as a restaurant serving its famous sandwiches, award winning salads, and delicious pizzas and soups. The Warehouse is a Cleveland Classic that attracts many visitors from all around to try our enticing Boar's Head meat that is gluten free and has no trans fat.

Visited the Warehouse for lunch with a group of 19 senior adults. We pre-arranged our visit and requested an abbreviated luncheon menu to expedite our service and dining time. The staff was waiting on us when we arrived and immediately seated us in a private room. Our waitress Lexie was very attentive and efficient and with assistance from the restaurant manager and one other waiter quickly took our drink and menu orders. Our food was promptly served and every entree was delicious. Exactly one hour from arrival, we were completely finished with a great meal and reloading our bus for the next step of our local tour. The Warehouse and it's staff could not have been better.

Crave

Reviewed By icarr2016 - Tunica, Mississippi

As a previous review identified the Café/Bistro had reduced hours 11-2pm for the lunch hour rush. We arrived in Cleveland about 10min to 2pm and walked into the Bistro about 5min to 2pm. Atmosphere was very nice and the large open area was inviting. We saw the menu on the wall above the counter - two girls working registers - whom seem to ignore us. We selected what we wanted to eat and approached the counter on two separate occasions - no response from any cashier - to busy on calculator or phone? Even the kitchen staff took more notice of me then the cashier. My wife had to request "where do we order" - to a reply "the kitchen is closed at 2" By now it was 2pm and I stormed out of the place a little disgruntle that no one advised us earlier that the kitchen is closing in two minutes or it is closed when we arrived. Poor Service !! Food looked OK!

Mississippi Grounds

Reviewed By Nina W - Jackson, Mississippi

Undoubtedly, this is the best coffee shop in Cleveland, MS. While living in Cleveland, I visited this cute place often. It is a great stop to bring your laptop, read a book or just write some thank you notes. This time we went to address Christmas cards in a comfortable setting. Not only is the coffee good but the baked goodies are totally tasty! I recommend you checkout this place, go often, sit in different places and you may even run into one of your neighbors as I once did.

Lost Pizza Co.

As Lost Pizza Co. continues to grow, our dream now is the same as it was back then. We want your dining experience to be as fun as getting to go see the bearded lady, riding a camel, while swallowing a sword at the state fair when you were 10 years old (yeah it's that cool!) We make every pizza with pride using only the finest and freshest ingredients! We make almost everything fresh, in house, every day. So come early because when we sell out of something, we are OUT (until tomorrow!) GET LOST...

Reviewed By amars662

I'll admit, Lost Pizza is a welcomed change for the area. However, over $18 for a 10 inch pizza is not okay. I ordered the Kujo and it was quite good, just not worth the price. I also ordered 12 Jamaican Jerk wings. The flavor was good but they should have been cooked longer. I hate wings with jiggly skin. There's another location in Indianola, MS and I heard it's better. If I'm ever in the area, then I'll be willing to give it a try.

Airport Grocery

Reviewed By James V - Clinton, Arkansas

One of the best meals I have ever had. I have eaten hot tamales all over Mississippi and these are the best hands down! The grilled green beans [ grilled I think in a black iron skillet] are found nowhere else hat I have ever been too. Beware, if you eat them they will ruin you for other green beans forever. The gravy covered French fries are also excellent and taste wonderful. I had 1/2 dozen tomales, order of gravy fries and grilled green beans plus a diet Dr. Pepper. My bill was less than $15.00. It doesn't get any better than this!
