Great service at the Madison location. Don't even bother with the Popeyes. The Madison POPEYES has been poorly run for years. You know what you are getting at KFC. This location is well run and managed.

Love it. For some reason the rice is more flavorful than the other Madison location. They give large portions of rice and have delicious flavorful chicken; I tend to share a plate or eat for lunch and dinner on the same plate. The pink sauce is the bomb too. They used to hand out sauce for free but now they charge a couple of cents extra per sauce container. Each fried rice plate is around $6 and that's awesome value for what you get. I've had the wontons once and wasn't disappointed. The service and wait time is just average but still love the place anyway.

Strawberry Cafe

Reviews:
In town for business and found this hidden gem. My boss stated the cream of clam soup was delicious as was the filet. The medallions was tender and very flavorful and the glaze was like icing on a cake. Great service too. Will definitely visit again if business brings me here in the future!
Do not go here if you have food Allergies. The management and staff are not understanding. After church we decided to venture out into Madison to eat lunch from a local place, Strawberry Cafe. We were asked to leave because we brought lunch for our son who is anaphylactic to all dairy products. We have to do this because his allergy is so bad that he cannot eat out anywhere. The slightest contact with dairy is life threatening. We brought his food with us his entire life, and we have never had a problem except here. There only concern is making money. Because I could not purchase a plate for my son, we had to leave. We will NEVER go back there. I tried to explain, but it was not their concern. We left humiliated and my son was devastated by being singled out for his food allergies. Hopefully that lovely person will never have to encounter food allergies and have to witness their child gasping for air because his airway has begun to close up. Hopefully that lovely person will never have to administer an Epi pen to their child when he can't breath and his whole body has begun to swell twice his size.
Strawberry Cafe is a sweet little restaurant located beside the tracks in Madison, MS. It is a little hard to find in my opinion, as it almost hides behind Persnickety Kitchen, but you can see the green sign from the road with a sharp eye. Service was average. My bf and I felt like the waitress was really heavy-handed and slammed our glass cups down on the table every time she refilled our sweet tea (uh, did I order the wrong drink??), but she was pleasant enough. Food was bleh. Average. Nothing to call home about, but it wasn't revolting either. Just.... Average. Kind of funny how the only two items on the menu that contained any strawberries at Strawberry Cafe was the cafe salad, which had a strawberry vinaigrette, and a strawberry cake for dessert. Maybe there's a secret strawberry menu that we didn't know about? Nonetheless, Poboys were just fine. Being as it is that stopped in for lunch, I was surprised that our meal (2 people) turned out to be close to $35. Granted, we did each got a Poboy and shared one appetizer. Still, after adding in a tip, I was surprised that a subpar lunch that lasted less than 1 hour cost me more than $40. Oh well.

Great food at a great price! My kids go there so much they have nicknamed it El Rans. I can go there and get full on real food for cheaper than I can go to McDonalds. The Speed Gonzo las or the P5 are Great!! A good place to go after Church on Sundays.
Best Mexican restaurant around!!!! Whoa... Good service, excellent food and service!!! They put the full pour to you!!!
Cheap...you get what you pay for. Dirty rude staff, high school hang out. My order has NEVER been correct. I had to send my food back 3 times and it was never right. I finally gave up and swear not to return.

Reviews:
We were looking forward to eating fresh seafood in MS. We were here the week of Thanksgiving 2013. We did enjoy the fish for sure. I'd like to give this restaurant 4 stars, but I just can't. We'd called to set up reservations since there were 6 of us, but we were told there wasn't a wait and we didn't need them. In the 10 minutes it took us to drive to the restaurant, the place filled up and we ended up with quite a wait, which was frustrating with a 3 year old. Then there was a mix up over seating us: we had a table, then we didn't and we were left standing in the dining room for 5-10 minutes. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We were very happy with her service. The food was very good for the most part. Everyone enjoyed the Bang Bang Shrimp, the Edamame and the Mussels Josephine appetizers. We were all full before we even started on the entrees. I probably was the only one who ordered the wrong meal for myself. Everyone else liked their dinners. My in-laws have been back to this restaurant since our visit and enjoyed it. Maybe it's just that we were too large a party and they should have let us make the reservation we requested.
I like this bar. The atmosphere is good, wait staff attentive and the food scrummy. I've been here a dozen times and never been disappointed. Reason for 4 stars is they have no allergy menu so I have to wade myself through the normal menu. A little more expensive than the other places in Madison but worthy every penny
We had a business dinner and from the moment we entered the temps tire was very cold. We including the men at the table were freezing. We ask to have the air turned down. Needless to say it went downhill from there we never got our soup, never got our tea and the server was condescending! Won't be back here.

Hokkaido Grill & Sushi

1029 Hwy 51 N

Reviews:
We love this place for some good sushi. I especially like the Dynamite Roll and the Hawaiian Roll. Though I have to say, I haven't had much here I haven't enjoyed. The staff is also very friendly. We're not much on the hibachi part, but that's because we like to eat in peace and quiet. But the few times we have eaten hibachi it was good and entertaining.
We walked in at 2:00 on a Sunday, and they close at 3:00. We were seated quickly, and our order was taken within one minute. Our hibachi chef was fun, entertaining, and fast. We had food on our plate within 15 minutes, and I am talking about a LOT of food. Not only was it a ton of food, but it was a ton of delicious food. The vegetables and meat were both fresh and perfectly seasoned. Their "yum yum" sauce was some of the best I've ever tasted. If you've never been to a hibachi restaurant, try Hokkaido. If you've been to one and you think yours is the best, try Hokkaido. To me, it's better than Ichiban and Bonsai. Plus, it only costs two people $35 to eat there, and that's with a Spicy Tuna roll added to the ticket.
Good food and sushi. I telling the sushi chef to make whatever he wants, and I have never been disappointed. I really enjoy their tempura and yakisoba. The place has a great atmosphere and nice decor, which is much better than what I would expect for a restaurant in it's price range.

Blueberry drip coffee is delicious! Blondie Latte is divine! Beautiful location. Bumpy drive through. Be sure to try the Southern Pecan.
If you are in the Jackson, Canton, Madison area you will be hard pressed to find a Starbucks. Being an out of town visitor I was really trying hard to find a Starbucks especially since they are all over the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I checked yelp and I found only one and the person I was visiting suggested Cups, she has only been there 2 months but she said Cups was the local coffee shop. The location is really nice, bright and airy unlike Starbucks which are all dark and dreary now that I think about it. The staff was very friendly but I was missing the large drink menu I'm accustomed to. No worries everything was clearly written out but I didn't see any prices. I order one of the 2 special drinks that were listed by the counter. A Maple latte and had it made with almond milk which I do prefer over soy milk. The drink was really good and even had a decorative leaf in the foam. I think the price was comparable to Starbucks and next time I'm in Canton I'll stop at Cups for coffee drink.
So friendly. Lost my debit card one day and they gave me a FREE blondie frappe on them. Very sweet and courteous.

Reviews:
Cool place. The Chicken & Spaghetti is really good. Their fried Dilled Oysters are exceptionally good. Really cool local vibe here. These guys do it right. This place is a spin off of another Jackson restaurant that is very high end and good.
I had dinner there tonight with a group. I ordered the Mediterranean Pasta salad with shrimp. It was a generous serving of white rotini, finely slivered peppers, cheese (feta or goat?), green and black greek olives, cubed red onion, cucumbers, and dressing. It was good. I wouldn't drive to Lake Caroline for it, but not bad. Friends had gumbo and the smoked chicken toss salad and liked them, too. We walked out at 9:40 on a Friday night and there was no one in left except 4 people at the bar, so it's not a late night venue. We felt a bit rushed out as we were the only table left at 9:30. We had a cute high school waitress, she did a good job for her age. It's just a diff vibe than Nick's for sure. Very casual.
The Mermaid Cafe is in a beautiful location with a great coastal feel. Feel free to dress casually and still enjoy a fabulous meal. Tonight we tried the crab claw appetizers which were fantastic, the pork and grits which was good and the stuffed catfish which was delicious! The service was excellent.

I'm from Texas and boy do I love burgers. I went by here yesterday and ordered the blues burger with the home style fries. The burger was okay was a decent size. I didn't really like the shredded lettuce they used. The fries were pretty good. Crispy on the outside soft on the inside. The sourdough bun didn't really compliment the burger well. I also had the Georgia peach drink. That was very good. Slightly sour because it had sweet and sour in there. Overall it wasn't bad but it wasn't the best.
The restaurant was packed, but our service was great and the food was super tasty. We loved the ahi app!
Overpriced.... Maybe cause in Madison! 26.50 for salad and one beer... Lost my appetite... Will not go back! 30$ with the tip!!!! Just a beer and salad!!

City Grille

Love this place! Great pear salad, wonderful boiled shrimp platter and sumptuous remoulade sauce. Everything is great!!
Very disappointed. We got to the city grille at 9:15 on a Saturday night. The doors were locked and someone inside was mopping. Their website, door and yelp all list that they are open until 11pm on Saturday nights. I will not attempt to come back.
Plate lunches are fantastic and reasonably priced. It's extremely clean and food always taste fresh. I've eaten every single item on plate lunch menu and the only thing I could do without is the Chicken spaghetti. Everything else is just freaking fantastic. Wasn't a very exciting menu for brunch and could use a few more options. Kind of expensive for brunch. Service could be a little more friendly... But food is so good, it keeps me going back.
