The service was alright. The waiter didn't know how to mix bourbon and ginger ale. The crab dip appetizer was amazing, but dinner was disappointing. The rib-eye was overcooked and heavily seasoned. The sauce on the crawfish ravioli was too watery.More

When visiting Natchez go across the Mississippi river to Vidalia La to get good home cooking . They had the best catfish plate. Don't forget their homemade desserts including the best bread pudding in the south.

Stopped in here in the late afternoon for “lunch”. Place was very cute with re-purposed items in several areas for decor. Wait staff was very friendly and efficient. Food was excellent. Would definitely go here again.
