A waiter at another restaurant recommended this place for happy hour and she didn't steer us wrong! Beers are $1.50 and wine $3 during happy hr. The place is nicely decorated with plenty of TVs for sporting events. While we were there you could play trivia for a $3 entry fee for a chance to win up to a $50... More

Our experience was NOT good. We picked Bowie's for live music and waited to eat dinner late before the show was to begin at 9:00. We paid the cover, picked a great table near the band/dance floor and were looking forward to a fun evening at what seemed to be a great local hangout. There were four of us, the... More

We arrived on a Sunday night and decided to go here as reviews stated service was adequate and food was above average. Wished we could have experienced either. We were seated on the front patio outside looking over the park and river. It was a nice night, but after placing our order timely, we waited forever. After about 45 minutes,... More

I'm not sure if this is a two or three star review; we went because when we were at the park across the street earlier in the day we saw their sign out front that said that the day's special was meatloaf. Hubby had been craving that meatloaf all day, so we went back for dinner later and crap. It's... More

From the daytime to the nighttime, this has always been a good choice to go to for a girls day or a date night/girls night. The bands on the weekends are usually awesome and the customer service is outstanding. Recommended for any tourist or Natchez visitors.

This is traditional bar food. A good variety of beers and options to dine in or out. Under the Hill history here.

Good Chicken and Live Music, this was a quiet Sunday night and we had a nice relaxed meal sat outside whilst the band played, you can’t knock that. This is a big bar and grill and the music was very loud inside but we’ll cooked Southern fried chicken on the banks of the Mississippi.

Bowles is in a beautiful old building right across the street from the river park in downtown Natchez. The bartender was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on drinks and food choices, I had the artichoke, chicken, spinach pizza ( yum bang!) and my husband had the burger and said it was the best he had ever had. It's a... More

We had one of our most treasured nights of our road trip was spent here. Cocktails and karaoke what more can you ask for? Oh and ladies drink for 1/2 price on a Thursday.
