Our hotel staff suggested this place. Easy quick walk from hotel. Unexpected - food was very good. Had fried green tomatoes and red/beans and rice with sausage. Met some nice locals there. Stayed and partied with them,listening to a local musician/band. Fun music. A bit crowded later on. Not enough seating as the night grew later, and people would try... More

We were going through Jackson on a business trip and the staff at hotel suggested this restaurant. The best grits I have had anywhere. Wife had the shrimp and grits and I had the crawfish and shrimp penne. Both were excellent. When I go again, I will have the shrimp and grits. The wait staff was ok. Not very attentive... More

Downtown Jackson is a bit desolate after 5:00pm and underground 119 would not be easy to find without a recommendation..but thank god for that recommendation! Food was great, red beans and rice is awesome! They make a wicked good Moscow mule. Their wine selection is pretty good and the acoustics for live music, awesomeR. Strongly reccomend it.

On the night we were there, there was a blues band who... More

I consider 119 the coolest place to see live Muisc in downtown Jxn. The stage is about a foot from the dance area. I saw Jimbo Mathus recently & was close enough to see exactly what he was doing on guitar. The music has also become a little more varied lately which I like. The place is also a safe... More

Loved the food, especially the dessert which was Peanut Butter Ice Cream with a touch of cayenne pepper in it. I was skeptical but it was fabulous. The entertainment portion of the evening was not as enjoyable, but not at the fault of the group playing. It was a young crowd and no one shut up long enough to hear... More

I would have totally missed this spot had I not asked some locals of "where to go". They suggested Underground 119 for some chill blues music and great bar/food. I enjoyed sitting at the bar, had nice wine selection and really good tapas menu. Local singer/songwriter Cody Cox was playing that night, and it his music was full of local... More
