Sherman’s Restaurant was a Greenville, Mississippi restaurant featured on Season 1 of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back. Though the Sherman’s Restaurant 24 Hours to Hell and Back episode aired in July 2018, the actual filming and visit from Gordon Ramsay took place all the way back in November 2017. It was Episode 4 of Season 1.
Gordan Ramsay travels to Greenville, Mississippi, to visit Sherman’s Restaurant.
Allison and Peter Nimrod own the restaurant.
They brought the restaurant in 2012 from the Sherman family (hence the name).
Allison and Peter kept the name because, for some reason, “The Nimrod Restaurant” just didn’t seem appropriate.
Allison and Peter are overwhelmed by the work the restaurant gives them.
When Allison and Peter brought Sherman’s Restaurant, they also inherited their customer base.
Still, the numbers are slowly decreasing due to the restaurant going downhill.
Allison reads reviews online, but she doesn’t use criticism to benefit the restaurant; instead, Allison will rudely fight with the customer and lie to them.
Chef Steve has been at Sherman’s Restaurant for 32 years. The other chef, Nicole, is clearly the better cook.
Allison and Peter are nervous because they will lose their home if they lose the restaurant.
Gordon shows up disguised as a farmer and immediately sees how worn and tired the restaurant looks.
The restaurant also smells and is sticky every place you touch.
Gordon decides to order southern staples, but everything comes out tasting microwaved.
The gumbo is greasy, the oysters are chewy, and the catfish is soggy.
Gordon meets the staff, and he immediately shuts down the kitchen and dining room.
While exploring the back, Gordon sees pungent-smelling meat, chicken thawing incorrectly, pests, and much more nastiness.
The owners do not believe the feedback, so Gordon takes them through the kitchen to show them how nasty it is.
He then takes them to the Hell on Wheels truck to deliver them surveillance video of Allison combing leftover condiments with new ones.
There are also cockroaches and chicken thawing with crab and fish. A very disgusting practice for sure.
The renovations begin, and Gordon sits down with Allison about Steve.
Steve had no idea when the grease traps were last cleaned, and they were overflowing.
Gordon tells Allison that Steve is not fit to be a chef and that he has to go and Nicole needs to take his spot.
Gordon then shows the staff the renovations and the new menu. Everyone loves the display and flavor.
Gordon teaches the staff how to cook the Catfish specialty dish.
Owners Allison and Pete decide to promote Nicole to head chef; they demote Steve much to the chagrin of Gordon. Still, eventually, they do let Steve go to little fanfare.
Gordon invites the entire community to the grand re-opening of Sherman’s Restaurant, including the town’s mayor.
A local flooring company donated over $10,000 worth of floor to the Sherman’s Restaurant. An appliance company also donated $9,000 worth of appliances and equipment.
The customers of Sherman’s Restaurant are highly impressed.
Allison keeps serving and needs to be reminded that she is supposed to be managing.
There is an issue during the night.
At first, Allison can’t be found. Eventually, she quickly fixed the problem, and the re-launch became a success. Many of the guests promised to return.
Sherman's Restaurant Update - What Happened Next?
After the Sherman’s Restaurant 24 Hours to Hell and Back episode, things seemed to be going a lot better for the restaurant.
Reviews were much better, with a lot of the recent Yelp reviews being five stars and compliments for the service and food.
Unfortunately, disaster struck in January 2021 when the restaurant suffered a kitchen fire and was damaged beyond repair.
As a result, Sherman’s Restaurant closed for several months while they tried to find a new location or repair the damage.
For a time, it seemed like Sherman’s Restaurant would be permanently closed.
However, we are happy to announce that Sherman’s restaurant did manage to reopen in October 2021, though at a new location in Greenville.
They also have a slightly different name – it’s now Sherman’s at South Main instead of Sherman’s Restaurant.
Here’s a video showcasing the new location:
The new address for Sherman’s restaurant is 1697 South Main St Greenville, MS 38701, which is just a bit down the street from the original Sherman’s Restaurant location in Greenville.
Is Sherman’s Restaurant still open?
As of 2022, Sherman’s Restaurant is still open and serving customers in Greenville, Mississippi at a new location down the street and under the new name Sherman’s at South Main.
They managed to overcome the fire to reopen and keep things going – congratulations to them!
On the Sherman’s Restaurant Facebook page, they share a lot of updates for musical acts, so it seems like music is a big part of the new location.
