Some how we ended up here multiple times during our stay in Natchez. The catfish we had the first day was slightly under cooked (we had it grilled). But the wings and burgers we had the other times we stopped in were very good. Above all the service was excellent even when the place was slammed.

Had picked this place out from online research for a place to eat near Natchez Brewery we planned to visit. We wanted a bar/pub where we could get a beer and food.
Arrived about 2:15. Place was not busy, those who were there were waiting for LSU Auburn game to begin. We decided to sit at the bar. There were 2 Natchez beers on tap, but no identification as to which on the tap handles. Me: "What are the Natchez beers on tap." Bartender: "One is light one is dark." So I ordered an Andygator. Surely with the brewery less than 2 blocks away a bartender would know their beers on tap. Experience went downhill from here. Bartender obviously did not want to be there, and seemed annoyed we were there. Asked for some water, finally received a glass. Asked if we could order food and was given 1 menu. Finally got her attention and we ordered the house Seafood Nachos. Tasted good, nice size serving, only reason gave 2 circles. This visit turned out to be a poor choice and far from a pleasant experience.

We walked to this tavern from our hotel which was across the street. We had pizza that was good and drinks. The wait staff was friendly and the service was timely.

Overall was a fun experience. The food was very good. I had chicken fingers, which were some of the best I have had. Also had parts of a french dip and shrimp po-boy which were also good. The wings we had were not little scrawny thing they were delicious. We had food catered by them the next day at a party and it was equally good.Good selection of drinks. Our server Chasity, was very good and friendly. Had a few fun groups of people to mingle with which made the night. Din not really matter but the DJ was not that good.

My husband and I stopped by for a beer when we visited Bowies. Very neat old building. Fun to know that Jim Bowie had once lived here. Nice old bar and the food looked amazing- too bad we weren't hungry enough to eat. Bar tenders were interesting to talk to as they told us about places to see during our visit.
