Posecai's Restaurant is located at 1443 Trailwood Drive
in Greenville, Mississippi. The casual dining
restaurant offers a variety of cuisine. From the
local Delta favorites to the creole and
cajun taste of New Orleans and scrumptious desserts, the
menu promises a selection to please every diner's taste.
When you walk into Posecai's you can't help but feel
that you have transcended back in time to the unique
ambience of New Orleans. The house was built in 1896 by
master craftsman and lumber jack Eli Franklin Wineman.
Mr. Wineman was also one of the original operators of
Greenville's newly restored and the country's oldest Armitage-Herschell
Carousel, which is now housed in the E. E. Bass Cultural
Center. The house was cut in half, rolled onto
logs, and transported by mules in 1917
to Broadway Street near downtown Greenville where it was
reassembled. In the 1990's, it was
moved again to its current location on Trailwood Drive.
The mystique and solid architecture of an era past comes
alive amidst crisp white tablecloths in contrast to
modern black slatted chairs situated around each table.
Colorful watercolor and oil renderings for sale by local
Delta artists adorn the walls. While most of the
walls are still the original wood, some have been
replaced by sheetrock. The warmth of the rich wide
plank hardwood floors under foot complete the ambiance
meticulously created by Ted and Rebecca Posecai with a
little help from their friends.

Posecai's is proud to call Greenville its home. Located on the banks of the Mississippi River,
Greenville is in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, the
birthplace of the Blues. The local people of the
Delta are the most friendly people in the country.
Perhaps the friendly personalities of the Delta have
been the influence for the many published writers the
city has produced; more than any other city in the
country. The William Alexander Percy Memorial
Library in downtown Greenville houses an exhibit
featuring Greenville Writers such as Shelby Foote,
William Alexander Percy, Walker Percy, and Hodding
Carter. Greenville also
offers some of the country's best fishing with it's many
oxbow lakes formed by the erosion of the Mississippi
River over time. Hunters will encounter an
abundance of Deer, Dove, Turkey, Coon, Squirrel and even
Alligators in the vast areas of thickets, fields, and
lakes around the Mississippi Delta. And if it is
gaming you enjoy, Greenville has three casinos offering
exciting gaming entertainment as well as shows featuring
