Hidden Restaurants in Oxford, MS


Known as “The South’s Best Food Town” by Southern Living, you will not go hungry while visiting Oxford, MS. The square houses several great places to eat with a restaurant around every corner, but sometimes fighting the crowds on the square is just not on the to-do list. Here’s a list of 18 hidden restaurants in Oxford that you must visit before leaving.

Holy Crab and Sushi

Holy Crab and Sushi opened their doors for business January 10th and has been a hit with the college students. Located at 705 Sisk Avenue, they have an extensive menu that includes a cocktail/martini page, sushi rolls and a wide range of seafood options. Their beachy vibe gives customers almost a vacation-at-home experience.

Lost Pizza Co.

This family-friendly pizza place on College Hill Road has the coolest atmosphere - and GREAT pizza! They also have great salads and appetizers, a nice bar upstairs, and spacious outdoor seating on both levels. (BONUS: they are next door to Crave - a YUMMY dessert spot!)

King's Steakhouse

Locally owned and operated, King's Steakhouse is nestled away from the chaos of the square at 1007 College Hill Road. Whether you’re looking for a place to go for date night or a casual dining experience, Kings is the perfect place to go to get a good steak. And, it’s always a plus when you don’t have to fight the square parking and long waits.

Cabin 82

Just off the lobby inside the Graduate hotel is a quaint café called Cabin 82. Open from 6:30 am – 4:30 pm, Cabin 82 hits the sweet spot for a good southern breakfast. Their specialties include house made chicken as well as buttermilk biscuits, yum! They also serve lunch along with cocktails amid the vintage vibe, homey vibe of the Graduate.
