The Nautical Whimsy is a special treat, thus cozy little bistro has ample seating indoors or outdoors. We sat in the clean narrow alloy way between buildings with hanging lights over head providing our in star filled sky above. With views of the old court house ahead. The appetizers were a meal in and of themselves. Our party all had... More

After waiting several minutes, the server states that the table is reserved. Really? no reserve sign etc...So we walk into the bar area and sit at the bar and order... More

The food at Nautical Whimsey was some of the best Italian food I've had. The Italian nachos was our family's favorite.

We were recommended this place while we were in town for business. All food is made to order so expect the service to be a little slow. I felt the prices were good and the regular fettuccine portion could easily have made 4-5 meals for me. We were there during the week so it wasn't really busy. I've heard the... More

High quality food at a good price. Good steak. Great appetizers. Great Italian dishes such as fettuccine alfredo. Food portions were huge. Best Italian styled food in Northeast Mississippi area. Sometimes however it is under staffed.

If you're looking for a laid back atmosphere, ice cold beer, awesome food, and superior service- look no further!! The staff is super friendly, and patrons at the bar tend to interact- despite which Mississippi team they pull for. Whether you're a local or just stopping in Tupelo on business or a concert, ya gotta check out the. Nautical Whimsey.

Lovely fresh food and large portions at reasonable prices. My husband said the Lasagna was best he'd tasted. I had a tomato and mozzarella salad with grilled chicken, couldn't quite finish it all. I'm not a lover of dressings but the dressing on this salad was really good.
