Week four of the current prep football campaign features several big games including an all Jackson County battle between neighboring rivals Moss Point and Gautier.
The Tigers got their first win of the season under first year mentor John Feaster over St. Stanislaus at home last week, and after three straight home games his MPHS squad hits the road for the first time albeit just a few miles down U.S. Highway 90. Both teams stand 1-2 on the year, and the Gators couldn’t hold an early 20-0 lead last week in a 28-27 loss to rival Pascagoula. The Tigers and the Gators meet for the 16th time in the past 17 seasons on Friday night, and GHS has won two straight in the series and three of the last four.
Moss Point remains on the road next week with a visit to West Harrison before returning home on Sept. 29th, to open Region 8-4A action against Poplarville.
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.
Prep football fans from all across the coast converge on Delmas Ave., in Pascagoula this time of the year to enjoy the food and down home atmosphere that Scranton’s provides.
“I’ve been coming to Scrantoon’s for years and I still really enjoy every time I come here to eat,” Gulfport resident Ricky Cunningham said. “Just recently, while on a business trip to Pascagoula not only did I stop in for a bite before a meeting I had but then I came back and grabbed a pair of entre meals from their market to take home for dinner for me and my wife.”
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. Or you can opt for the Chicken Parm that Cunningham enjoyed this week.
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.
