Located in an original 1790’s carriage house and stables, The Castle is the perfect setting for a wonderful dining experience. Having received the Wine Spectator, “Award of Excellence” since its opening in December of 2000, The Castle Restaurant has a wine selection compared to no other establishment in our area.
The view from this fabulous restaurant is among the most spectacular anywhere along the mighty Mississippi, and the food is equally grand. Our dining is ideal for a quiet intimate dinner for two to celebrate an anniversary or just to get away to reconnect. We can serve two or twenty and make it special!
Even if you are staying at a full service hotel or a bed and breakfast in Natchez, you somehow have to make your way to the Donut Shop. Now it may not sound like much, but when you sink your teeth into one of their sugary sensations, you'll know you've discovered something special. And if you don't wake up early enough for donuts, you can indulge in an order of succulent tamales. They make their shucks from scratch and they are some kind of good. People have asked why we list them on our website, and we just think it would be crazy to not let everyone know about one of Natchez' best kept secrets!
Local iconic restaurant serves seafood, southern cuisine and steaks.
It is a produce stand and unique eatery that doesn’t have to try too hard to please - they don't have to. It may be an old shotgun shack but don’t be deceived. You won’t leave empty-handed after getting an eyeful of freezers of fresh fruit smoothies whipped together on the spot, individual homemade tartlets, fresh squeezed lemonade and a room overlooking the river that's full of mason jars: peach butter, apple butter, jams and jellies.
True small town ambiance is found in this cafe, Three Way Seafood/Backyard Cafe, located in the back of a 1940s service station. The retail store sells fresh shrimp, crawfish and catfish as well as boudin and other regional sausages. Daily lunches feature a full course buffet of Southern home cooking.
In 1982, Robert Mosley brought his hot tamale business from Greenwood to Jackson. Photographs of generations of the Mosley family adorn the walls, along with authentic Blues posters, guitars, and other down home memorabilia in Tony’s Tamales. Mr. Mosley's fascinating collection of model cars representing the 1920's through the 1970's is displayed on shelves above the counter.
Toot’s Grocery is a local favorite. If you like locations only locals know about, this is the place for you. This family-owned grocery store is a favorite for its homemade pimento cheese sandwiches, chicken salad sandwiches, Reuben and numerous other tasty options.
Two Sisters' Kitchen is pure home cooking located in a two-story 1904 house that still has the atmosphere of a Southern boarding house. Politicos from the nearby state offices are regulars, and the birthplace of Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Eudora Welty, currently a writers' village, is right next door.
Built in 1946, Walker's Drive-In still has the same glass brick trim and authentic neon sign. Award-winning chef Derek Emerson creates plate lunches of chicken salad with cold cornbread dressing as well as fried green tomato BLT's.
