Week three of the current prep football season kicks off tonight, with games being played in Pascagoula, Moss Point and Gautier.
At War Memorial Stadium in Pascagoula, the annual “Singing River Classic” is renewed as the Panthers host visiting rival Gautier.
In Gautier, Resurrection gets back to Jackson County after playing its first road contest of the season as the Eagles host Richton.
And on Dantzler Street in Moss Point, the home-standing Tigers host St. Stanislaus for Homecoming.
And speaking of coming home, just like prep football in South Mississippi Scranton’s Restaurant and Catering on Delmas Ave., in Pascagoula has been an integral part of the fabric of community life in Jackson County for many years now. And what a great place for a pre-game meal on your way to the game or perhaps even a spot to pick up some tasty food on the go for a tailgate party on either Friday night or Saturday afternoon.
Scranton’s has been synonymous with Pascagoula for the past four decades. It is one of South Mississippi’s most historic and unique restaurants, and Scranton’s Restaurant is proud to provide something everyone can enjoy. It’s the perfect “one stop shop” for all of your tailgating as well as pre-game sit down meals.
Whether you’re in the mood for unmatched firehouse nachos, crispy shrimp tacos, juicy burgers, or a fresh salad, they have it all located at 623 Delmas Ave., in Pascagoula.
They have a casual restaurant menu designed to satisfy any appetite. The market is perfect for on-the-go meals and stopping in to grab a quick bite. Scranton’s strives to make their restaurant enjoyable and accessible for everyone.
Also, Scranton’s features a “grab and go” section that brings mouthwatering dishes that are brilliantly prepared with a local flair. There’s our unforgettable Shrimp Gumbo, She-Crab Soup, Fresh Salads, Savory Burgers, Sandwiches and po-boys, Crispy Fried Seafood, Fresh Catch of the Day, Vegetarian Options, and a menu that changes seasonally.
You can also hold your next celebration in their private party room or the outside dining area. The market is excellent for grab-and-go and gift baskets. Scranton’s makes sure to include more staples, expanded grab and go as well as casserole selections in the market. Since 1982, Scranton’s has been serving exceptional cuisine in a historic, early 1920’s building in Pascagoula that once housed the town’s firehouse and city hall. Today, remnants of the town’s history remain a distinctive part of the dining experience. Guests are welcomed to browse the premises and peek inside the old town vault; dine in the spot where the mayor once conducted business; touch the bars of the town’s original jail cell and glimpse the red roll-top door that once opened to the old firehouse.
While co-owner Richard Chenoweth took care to preserve the building’s unique history, including preserving the old jail cell where prisoners were held until they could appear in court, and an old vault. But the Scranton’s experience is more than simply history. It’s also about the food. “We keep up with all the current food trends,” Chenoweth said. “But we’re essentially a reflection of the community. We give the people what they want.”
