Savor Starkville

Tend the roots. Savor the harvest. Share the bounty. It’s how we were raised…to welcome neighbors at our table for honest food, good times, and another open invitation.

With an award-winning farmer’s market, some of the best chefs in the Southeast, and more restaurants per capita than any place in Mississippi, Starkville’s culinary culture really is the main course for authentic food like no other.

For breakfast, lunch, dinner, and every conversation in between, in Mississippi’s College Town, the best of the New South still happens around the table. Your seat at one of Starkville’s favorite restaurants is waiting.
