Soft yeast rolls with butter take the hunger edge off. Medium-rare Filet is always perfect, served with Vinegar Jim's secret Marinade, which also brings out the flavor of the Pork Tenderloin Medallions, another favorite. Cajun dishes are authentic & served in large portions. Blackened Catfish...More

The food was good, especially the catfish. The service was a little slow, but not due to lack of effort. They appeared to be short staffed. The atmosphere and setup is really neat. I would definitely go back.

For good country cooking at a reasonable price. Great staff and good service. Vinegar Jim's has what you are looking for . From steak and potatoes to fish and fried okra. And don't forget to try their appetizers . Their fried green tomatoes are delicious

We enjoyed the atmosphere, but the food didn't seem to be freshly cooked. It wasn't terrible, but we weren't crazy about our experience. We most likely will not return in the future.
