The view of the Mississippi River from the restaurant is great. The food was amazing. Their catfish roulade is something everyone should try. It is so unique, it is hard to explain. The prices are a little steep, but the food is worth it.

Most come for the view but the food is good too. I came with a Natchez resident and she was able to identify most of the guests at the other tables - so definitely a local favorite too.

We had an experience at this restaurant. Our waitress, Diamond, was extremely accommodating. The view was amazing. However, food was mediocre at best. Ahi tuna was well done. Who takes a nice piece of ahi tuna and cooks it until it's dry? Sides were good....More

Named this place after the Soap Opera! Made a reservation, but they didn't even know about us. NOT Well managed. A whole bunch of Geriatrics must find this place interesting. Truly amazing. NOT THE BEST RESTAURANT IN NACHEZ, MS.

Late evening drinks after a long drive but welcomed by charming staff and drinks brought swiftly to a table by the window where we watched the lightning light up the river. Amazing

First off, the view is gorgeous, which is probably the only reason why the restaurant is still open. We went to The Pilot House for our anniversary dinner and could have not been more disappointed. We waited a solid five minutes to be greeted and...More
