Traditional Southern food cooked perfectly.

My husband and I stopped for lunch here and it was wonderful! We had the fried chicken and catfish which were crispy but not greasy. The vegetables (I had the smothered squash and crowder peas) were seasoned perfectly and delicious. Our waiter recommended the freshly made Hummingbird cake and it... read more

I visit Natchez, MS every year because of the great restaurants and B and B's. I always have to take a side trip to Vicksburg just to a meal. Walnut Hills has to be one of the best all around meals you will ever eat. If you like dessert--don't miss their Blueberry, Pecan, or Strawberry cake.

We chose this place b/c of reviews found on TripAdvisor. I thought it would have real southern cooking, but it certainly wasn't. I had the fried chicken ( 1 breast and 2 legs). One reviewer had warned that the the chicken was dry and hard. I wished I had listened b/c the breast was terribly dry and hard. I think... More

We have ate here many times and is one of our favorites in Vicksburg. The staff is always very friendly and the food is always great. The chef is great at taking traditional southern food and putting a refined extra twist to it. Stop by on a Friday or Saturday night and you will enjoy some live blues music. Great... More

We ate here for lunch and it was delicious! We all got fried chicken and it was some of the best we have ever had. We also got dessert which is a must here! Each person in our party got something different and it was all so good!

Food choices for young and old alike, the cuisine was outstanding, and the wait staff was very attentive. The Bisque was outstanding, and be sure to save room for desert, but you only need one desert for every two people, as they are HUGE!

just got back from Walnut Hills Restaurant where we had a great meal. We had blackened catfish with grits ( a first for me), mashed sweet potatoes and tangy green beans. The fish was tender and spiced to perfection. I loved the grits. We finished off with a delicious key lime pie...all in all a meal to remember... Thanks 'Victoria'... More

From the time you park in a crowed lot until you are backing out, this is home cooking southern style at its peak. The food is great, the service fast, and the atmosphere great. I had spent several days in Vicksburg but never before ate here. Our friends from Australia were very impressed.

We were visiting and looking for a place to eat. The museum suggested this place. It is nestled between trees and is a quaint, charming and full of character house. It is nicely decorated and has large round tables for larger groups. Our server made suggestions and answered all our questions. We settled on shrimp and grits and was not... More

We were referred here by a local resident. The fried chicken was spicy, juicy, in a word delicious. Unfortunately, we were too full for desert. There is music entertainment on Friday and Saturday.
