Watching sports while enjoying a meal is better than playing sports while enjoying a meal, as steaks are difficult to eat through a football helmet or while wearing a pair of boxing gloves. Avoid getting pummeled while enjoying a tasty meal with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare and drinks at Sportsman's Lodge on East Northside Drive.
Voted best sports bar by the Jackson Free Press, Sportsman's Lodge answers bellowing bellies with an extensive menu and sports aficionados with big-screen TVs. Keep an eye on a close game while keeping fingers busy with fried alligator-tail strips served with tabasco butter sauce and ranch dressing ($8.95) or herb-breaded and deep-fried crispy fried pickles featuring aged cucumbers served with ranch dressing ($5.95). Sliced turkey breast, Philadelphia cream cheese, sautéed bell peppers and onions nestle peacefully atop a soft focaccia-bread bedding in the turkey panini ($9.95), and the 100% beef foot-long Braves dog mingles with bacon, barbecue sauce, and onions inside a pillowy bun ($7.50). Hungry chinchilla tamers can swing by to enjoy a daily lunch plate ($7.95, served Monday–Friday from 11 a.m.–3 p.m.), along with complimentary corn bread, tea, and dessert along with the fresh breeze on the outdoor deck.
The exposed wood walls, long bar, and Lincoln Log foundation give the eatery a traditional lodge feel. Partake in games of skill with one of the pool tables or shuffleboards, and a multitude of libations, including more than 100 beer selections, provide necessary quenching after completing the Tour de France on a unicycle.
