Great setting in historic district of town. Warm welcome at the door and well looked after from start to finish. Good menu with plenty of specials. Went for Shrimp n' Grits for the first time: was not disappointed. My wife had Gumbo which also was spot on. No room for cake or pie but they all looked delicious. Good value... More

Walnut Hills is one of those rare places where family memories can be made. There are large round tables where the meal is served family-style. And the food - oh my! Brought back memories of special occasions where the aunts all cooked their specialties. And save room for dessert - or take it with you for later.

What a fun Lunch! Beautiful old house near downtown has been converted to a quaint restaurant. Service was first rate. The menu is old school southern staples that made us feel good. Seafood Gumbo, Fried chicken, mashed sweet potatoes, carrots & PIE. were all well prepared and tasty,

The fried green tomatoes are excellent, and save room for desert!! The fish is also excellent and the wait staff is top notch. Very close to the Vicksburg National Park.

This charming eatery is located in a house built in 1880. It offers what they term "Plantation Food." I had fried chicken, which is one of their specialties. The dark meat was delicious but the breast was a tad dry. It came with grits, which are different from grits found in Charleston and certainly different from grits at Cracker Barrel.... More

We've been traveling and were hungry for a serious home cooked meal, we were lucky enough to find Sunday dinner. The vegetable selection was great, we had one fried chicken and one shrimp and artichoke dinner. We asked to have our desserts packed to go since we were full! Beautiful old home from 1880, wouldn't have minded to sit on... More

I frequent Walnut Hills and its next-door neighbor several times a year. I love the friendly atmosphere where you sit down with strangers, usually travelers, and enjoy what's so great about Southern cuisine. Whenever I have out-of=town company, I take them to Walnut Hills for the fun of it. Usually, however, I sit at one of the smaller tables with... More

We always was eat here when in Vicksburg. The Fried Chicken is the best of any I've ever had (and that's a lot because it's my favorite food). The purple hulled peas and greens are delicious too. Pies are all good if you have room for dessert. It is a bit pricey at dinnertime. Try going for lunch. Lunch menu... More
