This place is beyond awful. My wife and I went there for dinner and the fact that there was only one other customer there should have warned us. The place was freezing cold and the TV's were blaring. But it was late and we needed...More

The only thing we eat here is the catfish and now it is awful. If you want to eat greasy food then you need to go

Looking for something different for dinner. Tried the grilled catfish. It was delicious. I previously had the fried catfish on many occasions but this was my first time trying the grilled version. Will definitely try again.

Son had the catfish which was delicious . I had the Rowdy burger, also delicious . The only disappointment was the mac & cheese. I think they forgot the cheese. Very bland. Kraft out of the box is better.

Come taste the original Johnny's Sauce, a Vicksburg favorite for eighty years. Our specialty dessert is Mississippi Mud Pie. We proudly serve Pepsi beverages distributed by Brown Bottling Group.
