Want some great fried chicken, gumbo, fried green tomatoes? Oh, and try their cherry cobbler! We took our mom out to celebrate Mother's Day. When asked where she'd like to go...Rowdy's, of course...for her favorite...fried fish!

Homely restaurant with good food - the fried green tomatoes and seafood were excellent! Unfortunately, the service was very slow and the drinks took a long time to arrive (nearly 15 minutes). I would recommend getting there early to avoid the crowds.

Stoped in Vicksburg for a few hours to visit musems and decided to have lunch. We saw people waiting to get in this restaurant and decided to give it a try. I had the best bay scallops I have ever had and my wife was also pleasantly pleased. The place was crowded but the server was very good and I... More

I started with a cup of their gumbo and the only word I have is WOW. It was one of the best I ever had. I then had the combo fish plate, shrimp, scallops, and crab cake all blackened. It was perfect, hot and spicy. A must if you are ever in Vicksburg.

Fried geen tomatoes BEST ever, so delicious and generous LUMP crabmeat INDEED, not like so many places, RUSTY's delivers the goods! TERRIFIC quality in this price range, by comparison, we dined at a higher 'rated' place next night nearly 50% more costly, and not in the same league...THAT's how good Rusty's Riverfront was last Thursday for dinner. Husband, ex chef,... More

We ate the Fried Asparagus with crawfish cream sauce for an appetizer, and the Filet with crabmeat. It was all delicious! One of the best filets I have had in a restaurant, and perfectly cooked!

We were down by the Art wall walk on the Mississippi River and decided to try one of the local eateries. After checking the menu, we determined they had something for everyone in our group would like. On recommendations from our Server "Bea" the Redfish dinner was hands down one of the best food on our trip. Their baked sweet... More

Recommended by 'Monique' at our hotel, this local gem / hangout was spectacular in both quality and value. World's greatest fried green tomatoes topped with GENEROUS LUMP CRAB MEAT was the star dish, but all courses were wonderful and the 'in house' made pies are TALL & DELISH. Super talented kitchen in our opinions, all selections we tasted or witnessed... More

If you go away hungry, it's your own fault. Try the fried green tomatoes. My husband had the house special redfish, amazing. Leave room for dessert or take it with you. Great wait staff.
