About Us

When your family is coming over for dinner you want to serve them only the best, right? That’s how we feel about our guests; you’re guests at our dining room table, not just a table with a number. We have a seat for everyone.

County Seat’s menu was designed around the history of the Town of Livingston. The mid 1800’s was a true gem of an era with amazing foods and cultures surrounding the thriving areas like Livingston. In our food we honor our past by returning to their style of provisions. Our local farmers will be supplying us with their goods on a regular basis from produce to dairy, livestock, free range fowl and even the wood to fire our unique grill. We will keep everything as close to home as we possibly can while making healthy food from our fresh ingredients. While we focus on farm to table we will take our focus further into charcuterie. Charcuterie is the art of curing and preserving meats. This was the way food was preserved before refrigeration and a huge part of the heritage of Livingston.

While what’s on the table is important so is the atmosphere around you. A seat for everyone means several different styles of dining and that is exactly what we have created. From a long community table to enjoy with whoever might sit beside you, to quaint booths that have a perfect view of the open show kitchen, to the outdoor patio facing our gorgeous Madison County sunsets – there is literally a seat for everyone at our table.


About Executive Chef Jeremy Enfinger

As a young child Chef Jeremy Enfinger remembers stirring the gumbo pot and sitting on the ice cream churn on his grandmother’s front porch in downtown Mobile. Born and raised on the gulf coast, in a deep culinary heritage, it was only natural to follow this dream that was so deeply embedded by his grandmother.   Currently residing in central Mississippi with his wife Abby and their 3 children, Enfinger is the former executive chef and general manager of Cooper Restaurant Group’s Ruth’s Chris Restaurant. His career in the culinary world started when he was fifteen years old working as a hired hand for a well-known local caterer. Aspiring to greater things, it was not long before he was behind the stove soaking in anything and everything there was to learn. Enfinger believes that as a successful restaurateur, he needs to be experiential in all aspects of the kitchen and restaurant. Enfinger studied Hotel Restaurant Management at Auburn University and completed his culinary studies at Faulkner State College. For the past eighteen years Enfinger has successfully worked in the restaurant industry.

Chef Enfinger enjoys teaching cooking classes, participating in BBQ competitions, competing in culinary competitions and recently was one of seven chefs who represented the state of Mississippi at the James Beard Foundation’s kitchen. Annually Enfinger participates in the “Throw Down on the Farm” with Chef Greats Alice Waters and Jamie Oliver. Enfinger is passionate about the culinary industry and when not working or competing he enjoys spending time with his family and savors the handiwork of other chefs throughout the United States. Enfinger prides himself on his pursuit of culinary knowledge and believes that a good Chef is always open to learning new things.
