This is a great place for catfish dinner. The fillets are cut into thin strips, lengthwise and are nice and crispy with good flavor. The price was reasonable. Staff was friendly.

Food is cooked to order so there may be a wait, but it's worth it. The portions are huge and great value. There were many locals the Friday evening we went... More

I really enjoyed eating at Jugheads. The catfish was just awsome. It was fried to perfection. The fries were tender and seasoned just right.

First time to Natchez and decided to try the catfish at Jugheads. It is just a little white house with a gravel parking lot so don't expect fancy tablecloths. Fried chicken and catfish are the specialty here. As other reviewers have noted, it does take a little more time than expected to get your food. Catfish was quite good and... More

On the outside it looks pretty rough. Don't let that scare you away though...the Southern Fried seafood is some of the best in the area! The only problem with Jugheads is how long your food is going to take, or if when it comes, it's going to be what you ordered. It's a shot in the dark!! Both the thick... More

We were hungry after a long day of driving and sightseeing and came upon this authentic looking place and stopped. We are glad we did. The shrimp Po Boy was great and really hit the spot. We liked the waitress and cook a lot.

Definitely not a touristy spot, but fantastic food! Wonderful fried catfish and shrimp, boiled shrimp, and popcorn shrimp. Also had the fried gator bites! The dining area is pretty small, but there was a steady stream of locals coming in the pick up take out order. Reasonable pricing and large portions.
