Description: For three decades, Scranton's has been serving exceptional cuisine in a unique, casual dining atmosphere. The restaurant makes its home in downtown Pascagoula, Mississippi, in a historic, early 1920's building that once housed the town's firehouse and city hall.Today, remnants of the town's history remain a distinctive part of the dining experience. Guests are welcomed to browse the premises and peek inside the old town vault; dine in the spot where the mayor once conducted business; touch the bars of the town's original jail cell, and glimpse the bright red door that once opened to the old firehouse.But the main attraction at Scranton's is the food - mouthwatering dishes brilliantly prepared with a local flair. Like Scranton's signature Shrimp & Grits; our special recipe of shrimp, mushrooms, peppers and onions poured over baked & seasoned grit cakes. You'll also want to try our Smoked Pulled Pork, slow-cooked and smoked to perfection on premise - or our hearty Crab Cakes, perfectly seasoned and loaded with succulent lump crabmeat. Then there's our unforgettable Seafood Gumbo, She-Crab Soup, savory burgers, crispy fried seafood, Po-boys, salads, fresh fish, juicy steaks, and specials that change daily.The list goes on, but it's always easy to see how Scranton's continues to earn its loyal following and win new fans each day. Come join us for lunch or dinner today, soak in a bit of local history, and experience the great food, fun and friendship that have made Scranton's famous.

Scranton's has been a fixture in downtown Pascagoula for many years. The service is friendly. The atmosphere is pleasant. The food is always good and they do not try to out do the latest trend. The total ticket is pretty reasonable.

No complaints. Fried green tomatoes came out nicely fried, not greasy. Shrimp stuffed with crab meat were delicious (though a bit on the pricey side). Muffaletta sandwich was good. Nice, warm, yeast dinner rolls for the table. Service was pleasant and efficient. Interesting historical building in old Pascagoula. Adequate parking.

This is a quaint place. Little bar, with moderately priced good food. Great for lunch, or dinner. Meeting friends, or eating with family. Love this place!

We happened upon this little gem of a place while looking for thrift stores. It once was a multi-purpose building that included a fire staiton, bank, court house, & a jail. It has old photos on the wall showing some of the history. The bank vault & jail cell are still there. The Fried Green Tomatoes with sauteed shrimp, mushrooms & cajun cream suace was my favorite. Firehouse Chicken Tacos were great too. The Cleveland Nachos which is bacon salt flavoured house potato chips with Parmesan fondue & crumbled bacon, were amazing. We ate at lunch time & it was reasonably priced for the excellent quality of food. I paid more than twice as much for dinner the night before at a fancy restuarant in Slidell. I'll choose Scranton's everyday of the week over the fancy place. Our waitress was very sweet & had a really cute southern accent. I will highly recommend this place to all my friends. I'd give it 6 stars if i could.

My husband and I enjoyed eating in a historical building today. It was a combination of a city hall, courthouse, jail and firehouse! The atmosphere was great! The food was good! The server was friendly.
