I like to go to listen to the bands on the weekends when I visit Natchez. The food is good, but I it tasted like the spinach/artichoke dip came out of a jar. Sandwiches are good, drinks are good and decent prices. Great atmosphere to meet with friends and hang out.

We stopped by for dinner on a Friday evening. The building was amazing and you overlook the Mississippi River so it was fun from the start. Our waitress was very personable. My wife and I shared the seafood platter and a cup of gumbo. All was delicious. We also tried the homemade croissant bread pudding with bourbon sauce and it... More

We loved it. Our server, Leah, was the best waitress we had while in natchez. The food was excellent and such a beautiful place. We sent people to eat there our whole 10 days in town.

I got the burger (and had it topped with pepper jack cheese) with a side of sweet potato fries. The burger was great but the sweet potato fries were severely undercooked and still a little crunchy in the center. Overall a good experience.

If you are lucky enough to stay in the area please visit this place. The food was great and the service we received was first class. Our server Alyssa E. was the bomb. Beer cold with laughter ended our day on both nights.

Bowies offered bar food in a pretty neat atmosphere. I loved the tall ceilings and large doors, but the burger we had was ok. It seemed more like meatloaf with cheese. Our son liked it but it wasn't my favorite. I did have the French onion soup and it was pretty good, I just would have preferred more o ions... More

Situated in the centre of the historic area of Natchez and backing on to the river walk, this former cotton warehouse is a fantastic lunch stop. Serving great burgers with a free beer from very friendly staff, this made a good break during our brief stay in Natchez.

Our friend was playing here so we came to see him. We have visited this place on 2 seperate occasions and service was completely different between the 2 visits. The food and the cocktails here are great and some servers are amazing. Some of them however, clearly didnt want to wait on anyone. Hopefully the manager saw this on such... More

Only went once in May, hot and open doors. Bartenders were inexperienced in cocktails. Didn't try any food, don't know what they have, actually. A good hangout for social interaction. Location is great.
