Our group visited NW on a Friday night at 5:45. We walked up to the alley seating area where there were several empty tables and sat down to be served. After waiting several minutes, the server states that the table is reserved. Really? no reserve sign etc...So we walk into the bar area and sit at the bar and order... More

They have a great beer collection and great Italian dishes... I ordered the trio plate which comes with the three best sellers... parmesiana, fetuttine alfredo and lasagna.

The food at Nautical Whimsey was some of the best Italian food I've had. The Italian nachos was our family's favorite.

We were recommended this place while we were in town for business. All food is made to order so expect the service to be a little slow. I felt the prices were good and the regular fettuccine portion could easily have made 4-5 meals for me. We were there during the week so it wasn't really busy. I've heard the... More

High quality food at a good price. Good steak. Great appetizers. Great Italian dishes such as fettuccine alfredo. Food portions were huge. Best Italian styled food in Northeast Mississippi area. Sometimes however it is under staffed.

If you're looking for a laid back atmosphere, ice cold beer, awesome food, and superior service- look no further!! The staff is super friendly, and patrons at the bar tend to interact- despite which Mississippi team they pull for. Whether you're a local or just stopping in Tupelo on business or a concert, ya gotta check out the. Nautical Whimsey.

Lovely fresh food and large portions at reasonable prices. My husband said the Lasagna was best he'd tasted. I had a tomato and mozzarella salad with grilled chicken, couldn't quite finish it all. I'm not a lover of dressings but the dressing on this salad was really good.

Great food. Great service. Huge servings. If not sharing order a half serving. Trust me on that. Indoor / outdoor seating. Had the best chicken parmigiano ever. Will return.

The eggplant parmigiano was hands down the best I've ever eaten! Great crust, not soggy eggplant in a unique tomato sauce! My husband had the Chicken parmigiano and said it was wonderful! The atmosphere was great and service too! Quaint place, with outside dining as well! Will definitely come back next trip here!

The quality of food and their price point do not match what so ever. I have tried their food on two different occasions, one dine in dinner and one via local delivery service. Dine in experience I ordered a steak. the steak had no flavor at all. now I am the type of person if you have to use steak... More
