RIDGELAND — Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar is coming to the new third phase of the Renaissance under construction here.

As Phase III of the Renaissance at Colony Park development chugs forward, two businesses received approval for site plan and architectural reviews to join the Costco anchor tenant.

“We had a very good meeting and I think we accomplished a lot.” Mayor Gene McGee said after the meeting.

The first approved building was a standalone restaurant, a Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar. Walk-On’s is a chain sports bar with locations in six states and cities including Hattiesburg, two in Baton Rouge, New Orleans and others. 

This location off Highland Colony Parkway is one of four currently proposed for the state including locations on the coast, in Southaven and Oxford.

According to their website, they currently boast sold franchise locations in 14 states including Mississippi.

New Orleans Saints great Drew Brees is among the founding members and co-owners of the franchise.




The other building is the first announced tenant in a proposed 8,400 square foot two-tenant building in the development. It is a retail building for Comcast. Mayor Gene McGee said that it would be “like an Apple store.”

McGee noted both items were recommended for approval by the Architectural Review Board. Both items were unanimously approved on the consent agenda.

Costco is set to open its doors next spring.
