While in Southaven MS, I was looking for a place to eat and meet. I had a few things to discuss before closing the deal with a government contract. I stumbled upon Wadford which I found out later is under new management and will be called Area 55. The place has a upscale laid back environment. There is a secluded... More

Very large portions with great prices. Owner is very friendly and personable. Several things on the menu are very tasty so it's hard to decide but I know I'll be back!

Good place to have a Girl's night out. Food was delicious and anyone who smokes can go next door to the cigar room to smoke. The service was very good as well. We will come back here again.

First time visit. Nice bar, small dining area. Nothing exceptional on the menu. Service was good and the manager stopped by to check on things several times. Seems to get a lot of a regulars. Music was being set up for later in the evening. Ordered a hamburger ($9 and $2 additional for either fries or onion rings) which was... More

My wife loves crab cakes but has had a hard time finding decent crab cakes. Last night she found them at Wadfords. The service was great but........ We were seated in what was termed the non-smoking section. All that really means is that you can't actually light up in the room. The smoke from the other room just overwelmed us... More

Been driving by this place for a while...unsure of atmosphere so never went in. Heard great comments so finally decided to go. Smaller place, but fantastic atmosphere...more for the business professional. Not cheap...but not stupid either, but the food was worth it. I can go anywhere and just eat. I like atmosphere, food and unique surroundings. The staff was great,... More

My wife and I went there for lunch about 3 weeks ago. We both ordered a lunch special. Food was fair, potatoes from a package. Small and over priced. Go down to Dan McGuinness for some really good food.

I had bought a Groupon offering for Wadfords. Since it was fairly new, I figured I would try it. I paid $15.00 for a $30.00 value. Just went this evening and was surprised that the nonsmoking section is a small room with four, 4 person tables and 1 8 person table. The lighting is very low and the room is... More
