We were staying at the Natchez Grand Hotel and wanted a meal close by. Decided to walk to this restaurant and glad we did. Even though the decline on the way to the restaurant was an easy stroll, be prepared for the walk back up the hill. Not bad, but not for anyone who struggles with multiple flights of stairs. The restaurant itself has a great location. If you want a meal with a view, reserve ahead of time so you can sit in the "upper level glassed in deck" otherwise you may have to sit in the lower main restaurant area which is still very comfortable (just have to look out smaller windows and maybe between the heads of other customers). Reservations are probably recommended, as they will ask you when you enter, but we arrived around 6:30 on Saturday night and had a few tables to choose from in the lower level. There is also a bar with a half dozen seats in the same area in case you're just looking for a drink. Dress was mixed. We went casual with shorts and a t-shirt, but there were jeans, slacks, dresses, and other more formal/business attire. I'll only comment on what we ate, and please understand I'm quite adventurous while my wolfe is a meat and potatoes kind of girl. We started with the cream cheese sausage Rotel dip which was fabulous. The wife had the grilled chicken alfredo and really enjoyed it. I had the mushroom and swiss samburger which was very good also. My favorite part of our meal was the desert, Edna Earl's Buttermilk Coconut Pie. Absolutely delightful! Prices were ok for our meal, but there were plenty of pricier options i.e. steak. Serving sizes were very good, doubt you will leave hungry. There's a saloon a couple doors down, which if you know the history, looks like it hasn't changed much :). I'm actually glad we got to walk back up the hill, walk it off. FYI, you can park nearby and they do have a restaurant parking lot which does close (check he hours when you park if you decide to hang out at the saloon). If you park on the street, get close to the curb as the tour busses squeeze by as they make their way down the hill.
