We stopped in Vicksburg while touring the South over spring break. Since we had our 14 yr old son with us, we didn't not stay in the Inn. I called a few weeks ahead to reserve a table and was glad I did because it was quite full/busy on a Tuesday night and I didn't realize Vicksburg would have... read more

We noticed that this restaurant was rated highly and decided to eat there. We arrived about 7PM. They already had two other couples and a large table with 11 or 12 already seated and told us it might be a wait. The service was as good as could be expected with one server. Obviously the were not expecting a large... More

We were looking for a good place to eat in Vicksburg and came here based on it's #1 rating on TripAdvisor. We weren't disappointed! The restaurant is small and the ambiance is wonderful. The hostess and our waiter were extremely personable and attentive. My husband and I shared a meal, and it was some of the best food we've ever... More

TA almost never fails us, but this time ........ We had dinner here. The atmosphere is very nice -quiet, historic, tables well spaced, white clothes, understated. Our waiter, David, I think, was very good - pleasant, attentive, & professional. Our problem was the food. My wife had the shrimp and grits, one of several versions of the dish we've had... More

The place is historical the atmosphere is romantic, I had mushroom ravioli and it was only 2 and to my wife's home made. They didn't skimp on the artichoke heats the sauce was excellent. The bourbon pecan pie was good I would preferred to have more filling and less grenache. My family order the surf and turf and chicken salad... More

We greatly enjoyed our meals at Anchuca. A friend got the blackened fish, which he said was delicious. Another friend and I got the shrimp and grits, which was good but not great. This may have been because we arrived so late to eat. The shrimp were a bit tough. Nevertheless, the atmosphere and staff were excellent and feel confident... More

We had the most wonderful shrimp and grits here that you can imagine. David, our server, was excellent and it was truly a five star meal. DO not miss.
