Showcasing Starkville and its food at its best

Only one local restaurant received two awards in the Best of Mississippi Readership poll, and this chef considers his menu the “Best of the Starkville area.”
Taking great pride in using local food and ingredients, Chef Ty Thames considers the menu at Restaurant Tyler to be a true “taste of Starkville.”
Mississippi Magazine readers voted Restaurant Tyler the Best Brunch in Mississippi. The restaurant also received fourth place in the Best in Fine Dining category. Restaurant Tyler is the only local restaurant to place in two “Best” categories as part of the Best of Mississippi poll in the July/August issue of Mississippi Magazine.
Mississippi Magazine said “Restaurant Tyler in Starkville’s historic downtown is the place locals go for a fabulous Sunday brunch. Chef Ty Thames’ Tyler Waffle (a thick waffle with house-made caramel and vanilla bean whipped cream, toasted and candied Duke Pecans, and fruit) or other traditional options will leave you satisfied.”
Thames said it is an incredible honor to receive the awards from customers who love the food and the restaurant.
