If you are in Vicksburg, this is one of the best places for good Southern food. Known for their catfish and batter fries, but everything on the menu is good. Good service and southern hospitality.

Our regular catfish dinner plate includes 6 catfish filets-original, grilled blackened or thin-sliced with pickled onions, french fries, cole slaw and cornbread served with a glass of our specialty blended tea. Come taste the original Johnny's Sauce over batter fries, a Vicksburg favorite for the last 65 years. We have a broad range of items for all ages and tastes.
