7 of the Best Steakhouses in Mississippi


1. Ely’s Restaurant & Bar – Ridgeland

Ely’s Restaurant & Bar checks all the boxes. It’s atmospheric and romantic; has a killer wine and cocktail lineup; world-class service and some of the best steak Mississippi can offer. This swanky steak joint is the best in the state and belongs on your next date night destination. Get started with their crawfish bisque and work your way up to the NY strip with some jumbo lump crab. Either way, Ely’s will become a fave in no time.

If surf and turf if your thing, then be sure to treat yourself to an evening of delicious steaks and seafood at Scarlet’s. Sat in the Scarlet Pearl Casino Hotel right on the Gulf, this sophisticated eatery takes fresh seafood and prime cuts next level. Be sure to opt for the prime ribeye alongside some scallops and don’t forget to ask for a wine pairing.

3. Biscuits Steakhouse – Ripley

At this Ripley fave, they take steak, southern hospitality and hearty sides and crank them up a notch. From their peel and eat shrimp right on down to the delectable skillet cookie, their entire menu will have you drolling. If available, load up on their Kansas City Strip or opt for the 32 oz sirloin known as The Hoss. Be sure to grab a loaded baked potato for the side and some whiskey or merlot.

4. The Rustler – Meridian

Romantic, sophisticated and charming beyond belief are just a few words to describe The Rustler over in Meridian. This swanky steakhouse makes dining out a full experience with their top-notch service, fine dining touches and knock-your-socks-off good steaks. We’re partial to their cuts, but really, the entire menu is impressive. Treat yourself to their super fresh and zesty crab claws before moving on to any of their USDA Prime Steaks. We recommend the Cowboy ribeye. 

5. Old Hickory Steak House – Columbus

This Columbus gem is just the place to get your carnivorous fix. Unlike many other steakhouses that place equal emphasis on the heaping sides and generous desserts, Old Hickory Steak House puts all their effort into steak. And it pays off big time. Treat yourself to a large ribeye – possibly the best in the state – with a beer and come ready to eat.

6. Doe’s Eat Place – Ridgeland

This cosy country joint complete with red and white checkered tablecloths is known for its genuine hospitality and world-class steaks. Whether you’re dining for a low key date night or just treating yourself to a delicious steak, they’ve got you covered. Be sure to get started with their crab stuffed mushrooms before moving on to the ribeye. Be sure to save some room for their legendary pecan pie, too. 

7. County Line Steak House – Philadelphia

If your idea of a delicious steak dinner involves a down home, no-frills community eatery where everyone feels like family, then you need to head to Country Line. Not only is this cosy steakhouse famous for its family atmosphere with good ol’ southern hospitality, it also serves up a mean steak. Opt for their bone-in ribeye with a baked potato and don’t forget dessert.
