Memphis-area Marshall Steakhouse is planning a $15 million location in North Jefferson County just off Interstate 65 on the Hallmark Farms property.

The Birmingham-area location will be one of several as the eatery and resort plans to expand across the Southeast.

According to an announcement, Marshall Steakhouse in Hallmark Farms will include 9,000 square feet of restaurant space, a 7,000-square-foot retail store, as well as a 120-seat bar.

There will also be a 120-seat banquet hall a few yards away, in a separate facility for large group and family events.

The Warrior property will also include, like the Holly Springs, Miss. location, a 100-space Class A RV park and 50 overnight cabins.

Open for the last five years, Marshall Steakhouse and Resort has been named “Best Steakhouse in Mississippi” by the Food Network since 2018, serving between 3,500 to 4,000 customers a week,

Other locations are planned for Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina.

Hallmark Farms was home to Ted Hallmark and his family, and this year’s location for the Decorators ShowHouse. Fred H. “Ted” Hallmark, a successful businessman and the owner of Hallmark Coal Co., built the house in 1976-1977 with his wife, Mary Ruth Hallmark, and lived there with their children.

The 565-acre property, which also boasts picturesque barns, a tennis court, helicopter pad and several lakes, has been an eye-catching landmark in North Jefferson County for more than four decades. It was purchased in 2019 by the Hallmark Farms Cooperative, a partnership between the City of Warrior and the Jefferson County Commission, with plans to develop it into a multi-use property.

Marshall Steakhouse founder and owner, Randall Swaney, said work began in January on the project.

“People can come eat with us and say they got to stay and dine on the historic Hallmark Farm and that is very exciting to many, including myself,” he said.

Warrior City Mayor, Johnny Ragland said the cooperative intends to keep the home and barn intact and develop the farm property for weddings, reunions, and special events.

Jefferson County Commissioner Steve Ammons, the president of the Hallmark Farms Cooperative, said the property “creates great visibility, drawing interstate traffic and creating local revenue that will produce even more economic growth for this region.”
