Known to have some of the best fish in town, Eddie and Ruby’s Snack Bar is a local, legendary restaurant that’s been serving the Jackson community since 1981.

Eddie’s Snack Bar, as it’s often called, serves up delicious, crispy fried fish, chicken and shrimp baskets.

The menu is simple, but there’s a reason why people have been coming back to Eddie’s for so many years.

Enjoy a fried pan trout sandwich or fried catfish filet sandwich with a side of french fries or a side salad. Or, opt for a one-piece platter of fried trout or fried catfish with a side of fries and your choice of dipping sauce.

Other options include an eight-piece fried butterfly shrimp, 30-40 pieces of fried popcorn shrimp, catfish filet plate, catfish steaks plate and a pan trout plate, each including fries and a salad.

If you’re in the mood for chicken, choose either the three-piece fried chicken tenders with fries or the six-piece fried chicken drumsticks with fries. Onion rings are also available as a side. Choose from honey mustard, barbecue, ranch and Cajun sauce for your dipping needs.

Eddie and Ruby’s was founded by Eddie Joe Bennet, named for him and his wife Ruby. Eddie and his daughter operated the business until he passed away in early 2000. Eddie’s daughter, Pat, has been running the place ever since her father’s passing.
