It’s Homecoming Friday night for the Pascagoula Panthers as they host Hancock at War Memorial Stadium in a big Region 4-6A contest.
That game at War Memorial Stadium is one of three taking place in about a 20-mile radius of Jackson County Friday night as Greene County travels to Moss Point and county rivals East Central and Gautier square off in Gautier.
The Homecoming contest for Pascagoula is this week’s Game of the Week for 228 Sports.
And just like prep football in South Mississippi, Scranton’s Restaurant and Catering 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.
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.
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.”
