The Mohogany Bar is one of the older bars in Hattiesburg.

About 42 beer taps, full liquor selection. And Bud stuff only in bottles, thank goodness.

Feels more like a decent bar on the east coast than a typical Mississippi bar, a good thing in my book.

Food is decent if a bit pricey. Not a bad place at all. Want better selection and a more southern feel, hit Keg and Barrel. Food as good, beer a little cheaper.

But if your looking for a more up-scale local try this one. It is linked with 3 other places, all use same central kitchen.

With over 25 years of history in the same location, The Mahogany Bar is the Grand Dame of Hattiesburg watering holes. The Hog recently upgraded their beer selection to include the growing list of Mississippi breweries and craft beer in general. They were recently voted to Draft Mag's Top 100 Beer Bars in America(the only bar in Mississippi to make the list this year) based on their efforts to expand their beer selection and quality. They've also begun hosting regular beer events such as Firkin Fridays, Belgian Flights and new releases. In addition to their beer selection, The Hog is the top seller of Wine and Liquor in the State of Mississippi with a huge selection of specialty mixed drinks. Go for the drinks and stay for the food should be their motto with a food menu that is unmatched in the State plus service to match.

The Mahogany Bar is the middle ground of Robert St. John's attempt to rule the Hattiesburg restaurant scene. In 2013 The New South Restaurant Group underwent a massive sea change, and the Hog (as it is known) became the craft beer location in the Group. They have a selection that rivals the Keg and Barrel, with higher prices.

Food is the difference maker; the kitchen is shared with the Crescent City Grill, Branch, and the Purple Parrot, although the menu is only shared with the Grill (Branch and the Parrot have their own menus). The best seafood in Hattiesburg, hands down.

The beer selection favors Mississippi's craft beers, and that's a good thing. The Hog remains the go-to destination on the west side of Hattiesburg for alcoholic beverages, from beer to wine to liquor, and it shows. The toppest of shelves is found at NSRG, and the Hog can give you a bit of everything. This bar is the old heavyweight, and Robert has weathered a rough Hattiesburg restaurant marketplace.

You can do so much worse than to be treated to some of the best service and the best selection between Jackson and New Orleans.

This one of the go-to places during my undergrad years. It rests between the Purple Parrot Café (pricier and more formal) and the Crescent City Grill (great Southern, mostly Creole food).

In trying to describe the atmosphere, it's kind of new age Old South. The patio/courtyard area emits a French quarter feel, while the inside a little more posh, but still in an "approachable" manner.

The beer selection is quite good and features tap brews from the only Mississippi brewery, Lazy Magnolia.

The patio is a great place for a student to sit down and relax with friends, as it's fairly quiet compared to the slightly noisier inside. The service, both inside and out is also quite good. I've never had a bad experience with service at the Hog.

The Mahogany Bar, or The Hog as it's affectionately known, is a great little bar that serves two of the best restaurants in Hattiesburg, Crescent City Grille and Purple Parrot Cafe. All three establishments are housed under the same roof and served by the same kitchen, and in my opinion, it's the best grub in town. At the Hog you can pick up anything from the Crescent City menu, but they also have their own bar food menu with lots of good appetizers.

The decor shouts "executive happy hour": soft lighting, copper tiled ceilings, lots of dark wood, and plush leather seating. Adding to the atmosphere, there is outside patio seating that is partitioned off by ivy-covered walls.

The drink selection overall is pretty decent at the Hog. The bar has a very good wine menu, and you get a wide selection of top shelf liquors (Blue Label for $30 a glass). The beer selection is as good as it can be. You get a solid 10 or so choices on draft (Blue Moon, Lazy Magnolia, Sam Adams, Guinness, BMC), and a nice variety of bottles, both domestic and import. I guess it's an unspoken law at these upper-scale places that they don't list prices on their beer list, but you can expect to pay about $4 a glass for anything above BMC on draft.

The nicest thing about the Hog is their extremely long happy hour. It generally runs from 5-7 and 10-close daily, and you can get 2 for 1 drinks. Come during this time and you'll be surrounded by suits on their way home from the office, trying to socialize and take the edge of the day. Very nice establishment in my opinion.

Ah, The Hog. What a wonderful place to slip into and forget hustle-and-bustle, if for only a short respite.
Nestled front and center of Crescent City Grill and The Purple Parrot, The Hog offers both indoor and outdoor dining, depending upon the weather. Guests enter through a wrought-iron gate into a courtyard which embodies the culture and architecture of the French Quarter. Behind the ivy-covered brick walls, it's easy to forget that Hardy Street is a mere 10 feet away.
The beer selection is well above average and always available. Service is quite good, even at the busier times of the day, with servers being polite and efficient. The food is nearly beyond measure, for anything prepared under the supervision of Robert St. John is par excellence. I suggest a shrimp po-boy and Lazy Magnolia Par 3.
