Found this very welcoming place on a miserable wet rainy Monday night when we had just arrived from Clarksdale. Food was very good and the service was excellent, our waitress Katie (apologies if spelling is wrong) was very attentive and great fun. We returned the following night, which is something we don't do often!

Nice location and nice decor. The food was fine, but the service was terrrible. Then I got overcharged which they promptly fixed, but ...... I'd choose another restaurant for the money.

Popular place. We had to sit downstairs, which I did not like, but the food was delicious, and the waiter was very attentive. Will be going back on our next trip

Eclectic decor, great ambiance, attentive service, linen napkins and outstanding food. 5 stars in my book. I thought the gumbo at the Magnolia Grill was great, this was better! My fried catfish was perfection, dry breading, perfectly spiced and hot out of the fryer, it doesn't get any better. The sweet potato frys were like candy and the cole slaw... More

This restaurant has loads of Southern charm! Obviously very good as it was jammed the night we were there. We had terrific service and delicious food. Very reasonable prices and large portions. Right downtown Natchez.

Lovely restaurant in an old building convenient for seeing downtown attractions. The chicken salad sandwich was wonderful and reasonably priced - served with sweet potato fries.

Ate here and was ready for some good ole southern cooking. Ordered fried catfish and it was great. Baked potato and Cajun slaw was wonderful as well. Place was packed yet only had a few minutes for a table. Great place to eat.

We had a very fine dinner here. The location downtown close to the river is convenient. Staff was attentive and accommodating. We needed to get out in an hour to go to the theater. The kitchen and staff made it happen.
