Local Eats | Steele’s Dive my next local restaurant review. Steele’s Dive serves a typical home-style fish and steak house menu with live music on the huge back patio at night.
4187 W Main St
Tupelo, MS 38801
Upon entering this rustic-styled restaurant, find yourself a seat either in the family dining room, the bar area, or on the ample back covered patio. The family dining room is quieter and good if you have little ones. The bar has large TVs for game watching. The back patio has another large bar and ample seating from four tops to picnic tables to large group tables. They also have large TVs and live music on the patio. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable.
They’re open for lunch and dinner weekdays and lunch on Sunday. On the regular menu they serve Southern fried catfish, steaks, shrimp, oysters, chicken, burgers, salads, and classic fries, baked potatoes, and onion rings as sides. An under 8 kids’ meal option is also available.
Typically, I get grilled chicken tenders and a baked potato. Sometimes, the Southern gal comes out in me and I don’t think about fat and calories. On those nights, I would get the whole fried catfish and hushpuppies. The hushpuppies are really good. Big Daddy almost always gets the hamburger steak with onions and gravy.
Steele’s also offers a Sunday blue plate special of meat and vegetables. A typical Sunday lunch looks something like this: beef roast, country chicken casserole, fried chicken tenders, fried okra, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, sauer kraut, peas, Mexican cornbread and yeast rolls. And that’s not all. For dessert, they offer homemade white chocolate bread pudding, pecan cobbler, apple dumplings, snickers pie, Butterfinger pie, million dollar pie and lemon pie. It’s not fancy, but it sure is good.
The menu is simple. The staff is friendly and helpful. Prices are average for this area.
No reservations are required. They can easily accommodate large groups. Fun family atmosphere.
