Steak for two. The filet is sooo good. Sausage and cheese tray is the bomb. The baked potato is so good. Heck, everything is great. Leigh Anne is awesome! Amanda is Awesome! This is probably one of the best places to eat in Tupelo!

Three girlfriends and I chose Nautical Whimsey for a Girls Night Out. We arrived at 5:30 pm on a Thursday night. There were a couple of tables taken, but were told to sit anywhere. Later, while we were visiting, we were told we would need...More

We dined here for lunch while on a business trip. I actually didn't realize it was an Italian place since there really weren't Italian things on the buffet but I did see a couple of people with Italian items. We weren't offered an Itialian option/menu...More
