The Senator's Place

The Senator’s Place is a family owned and operated soul food restaurant that is located in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. The restaurant was established June 20, 2003, by Senator Willie Simmons and his wife, Rosie at 233 North Street, Cleveland, Mississippi. In April 2006, the owners relocated the restaurant to 1028 South Davis Avenue in Cleveland. Since opening, The Senator’s Place restaurant has become a local favorite that brings satisfaction to every mouth fed. Designed to seat 160 for lunch and dinner or 225 guests banquet style, The Senator’s Place offers a daily lunch buffet along with Friday evening buffets allowing customers to dine-in or take-out. Our goal has always been one of providing a variety of southern soul foods such as fried chicken, smothered pork steaks, turnip greens, cornbread, peach cobbler and banana pudding prepared like mama and grand mama, using the wood stove. Senator Simmons is hands on in creating a tasty soulful menu to be enjoyed in a family friendly environment. We endeavor to maintain consistency in our cooking so that returning customers will find the same taste and quality in our cabbage, butterbeans, chicken dressing, candied yams, chicken ’n’ dumplings, and our special signature smoked chicken and finger-lickin’ ribs. You can enjoy The Senator’s Place through its catering services at family reunions, weddings, birthdays, retirements, repasts, holidays, or other special occasions. We take pride in preparing quality food and offering excellent services to our customers. Never hesitate to contact us so we can start preparing for your special event.


The Senator’s Place allows people to experience soul food at its finest with a country style atmosphere.
