Located in a historic log cabin, Café Genevieve specializes in inspired home cooking. Brunch is a local favorite featuring Southern-influenced classics such as fried chicken and waffles and the popular Cajun Benedict. And no need to wait until happy hour…a handcrafted daytime cocktail is perfectly acceptable here. Featuring one of Jackson’s most extensive whiskey collections, Café Genevieve lets you wind down with a barrel-aged cocktail, or you can choose something lighter from the eclectic wine list. In the evening, dinner is sure to satisfy any appetite with everything from fresh, local trout to Guy Fieri’s favorites, the Snake River Farms pork neck ragu and the ramen noodle bowl, featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Café “G” will lure you in with its cozy, welcoming ambience. Head in to sneak a peek at the “Most Noble Pig” and sample some famous Pig Candy to take back home (your friends will love you!).

This little place isn’t such a best-kept secret anymore, as more locals and visitors alike are discovering the down home goodness within. But longtime regulars as well as newcomers still fill the tables nightly. This small restaurant has seen a few incarnations over the years, but it has succeeded in making it one of the most charming and consistently award-winning and rewarding dining experiences in town.
Local is a modern American steakhouse and bar located on Jackson’s historic Town Square. The menu features both classic and specialty cuts of locally ranched meats and game in addition to fresh seafood, house-ground burgers and seasonally inspired eats. Owned and operated by chefs Will Bradof and Paul Wireman of Trio An American Bistro, Local showcases their enthusiasm for reviving the craft of in-house butchery, with a focus on dry-aged steaks and house-made sausages. Much of the beef comes from the Lockhart Cattle Company, whose grass-fed cows never leave the valley. Local offers a casual and vibrant bar atmosphere with 12 regional beers on draft as well as a relaxed dining room with a contemporary Western design. Local is the perfect spot to grab a burger for lunch or to have drinks and dinner with friends while you sit and watch the action on the Town Square.
The food. The view. The art. Jackson’s newest restaurant combines exquisite cuisine, breathtaking views and fabulous art from its perch at the National Museum of Wildlife Art, just minutes from town. From the team behind Gather, this lunch spot invites you to sip a glass of rosé on the patio, linger over your meal and peruse the museum’s world-class collection. Find chefs Clark Myers’ and Chas Bakis’ inventive dishes made with seasonal, sustainable and local ingredients presented in a creative way, like a braised pork belly BLT (with tomato jam, grilled red onion, sunflower pesto on ciabatta). Palate is the place to stop for a quick bite before walking around the museum or for a long, lazy lunch with friends. There is a kids’ menu available, and make sure to ask about Palate’s event catering at the museum’s many on- or off-site options. Visit Palate’s sister restaurant, Gather, for dinner downtown.

The Bird is a laid back bar and restaurant with a staff of humans who really and truly care about you having a good time. If something with your food, drink or service is not just right, let us know and we’ll do everything we can to make it so. Our regulars know this, so if you’re new here give us a chance.
But if you’re a fun-sucker*: uptight, unhappy or demanding, maybe try somewhere else that’s a little more geared to your sort. It took years, but we seem to have finally weeded out most of these fun-sucking folks; you know, those that can’t even have a good time on vacation? In their place we have managed to attract a crowd of solid, loyal patrons.
While you are here just cut loose*, get raucous, tell that joke you’re not sure is appropriate, stay late and have that one drink too many and we’ll drive you home. Do it, especially if you are only passing through, because you happen to be sitting in the one place in Jackson where just about anything goes*.
