A Review of Mississippi Pizza (Live music for kids)


A Review of Mississippi Pizza

Every Saturday, at 4pm, Mississippi Pizza hosts a family-friendly musical performance.

Family Friendly Features: Kid-friendly music, delicious pizza

Family Un-friendly Features: No changing tables, only 2 bathrooms

Our Experience: We arrived at approximately 3:50pm on a fourth Saturday to see the Alphabeticians http://www.thealphabeticians.com/, a musical duo. They asked for $5/family. My husband’s sister and husband were meeting us with their two kids. The place was already packed. A family scooted over so we could sit with them at their table, but that wasn’t enough for all 8 of us. There were two chairs and a small table in the very front available, so my sister-in-law and I sat there with all of the kids while our husbands went to get pizza for us all, and we left all of our stuff (diapers, purses, etc.) at the other table. Our kids were up front, center stage, in the toddler mosh pit, dancing to the live music. This was great for my 3 year old daughter and 4 year old niece. My 2 year old nephew was entertained for at least 10 minutes before he wanted to wander. My 1.5 year old son was not having it though. He wanted to stand next to me or sit on my lap. He watched though. The room became more crowded as more families tried to push their way in. It seemed to take a long time for our husbands to get our pizza and beer, but eventually we were served. The kids ate, but there wasn’t a whole lot of room for any of us. I remember feeling really uncomfortable, hot, and rushed. However, as the hour came to an end, many families left, and we were able to have our own table. And, happy hour started in the lounge. Overall, we did enjoy our time there, and I would definitely go back. The pizza was good. The beer was good. The kids had fun.

My Recommendation: Get there early. Get your own table, get your pizza right away, and prepare for it to get packed. The music only goes from 4-5, and this is a good amount of time to keep toddlers and pre-schoolers entertained. Stay for one extra beer at a happy hour price afterwards.  Live music and beer is always a great combo, even if it’s kid music.

Let me know your sentiments.
