My wife and I had a nice weeknight dinner at Vinegar Jim's. The Blackened Catfish was great. Vinegar Jim's is an historic place. Our waiter was a pleasant young man and made sure we were satisfied with everything.

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
