Ghouls, specters, ghosts, phantoms, apparitions ─ whatever you call them, these restaurants have them. Each restaurant on this list has its own legend for why it is haunted. Some ghosts are said to be present because they have unfinished business and simply cannot move on to the other side, while others have a much creepier past. The spirits remain in these establishments, lingering in the small corners and crevasses, awaiting to make themselves known. Employees and patrons have reported eerie happenings in these places and all insist their experiences were much more than their imaginations.
Next time you are visiting Milwaukee or drop by the small town of Little Falls in New York, swing by some of the spookiest restaurants in the U.S. You may get a glimpse of the spirits that occupy these bars or merely just get a peculiar feeling while dining. But, don’t be alarmed, order that pub grub and enjoy a glass of wine as you dine among the dead in the 10 most terrifying restaurants in America.
10 Muriel’s Jackson Square, New Orleans, LA
Located in the heart of the “Big Easy’s” French Quarter, Muriel's has one table that is always reserved. Set each night with bread and wine, this table is occupied by the ghost of Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan. The Great New Orleans Fire of 1788 tragically destroyed almost all of the French Quarter and a beautiful mansion was part of the wreckage. Soon after, New Orleans began to rebuild and new structures began to fill up the city. The property on which the mansion once stood was purchased by Jourdan to live in with his family. He restored the home and it became Jourdan’s pride and joy.

1 Margaritas Mexican Restaurant, Concord, NH
Possibly the creepiest restaurant on the list is Margaritas Mexican Restaurant in New Hampshire, if not for the ghouls, for the outrageous décor. Patrons don’t dine while sitting at standard tables, but rather eat at tables set inside old jail cells. This south of the border restaurant was once a jail and the owners decided to maintain its original style by seating guests at these terrifying tables. Diners have reported seeing silverware and plate settings supernaturally floating from the tables, totally detached with no explanation for their suspense. The guests are not the only ones experiencing paranormal activity, as the staff at this former penitentiary describe many occasions in which they hear strange and unaccounted for voices.
