I called Rowdy's yesterday to place an order to pick up for a meeting. The owner called me this morning to make sure everything was set up correctly. When I got there, everything was great! Super easy for picking up for meetings because you can get everything here - great food, plates and cups, tea, sides and desserts!

we just had to try a place that has the name "rowdy" in it. It's not the fanciest place, but it offers good home cooked meals. The service was good, and the prices are good as well.

Just what you'd wxpect from a downhome, southern style, family restaurant. Catfish was great, fried and blackened. No wonder it was voted best in Vicksburg. Get the breaded fries with Tod's sauce. Bobbie, our waitress, was so friendly and attentive. We'll be back next time in Vicksburg.

Great service, great food, great prices! Two in our group had the veggie plates on the lunch menu, blackeyed peas, fried okra, pasta salad and their famous battered fries with cornbread. One had fried shrimp on the lunch with greens and blackeyed peas, the other had "jacked up" fries-batter fries with cheese, jalapeños and bacon on top. All were pleased... More

Stopped by Rowdy's for lunch and thought the food was delicious. Catfish lunch special which was plenty of food. One price included catfish 2 sides,hush puppies, dessert and tea. Lunch hit the proverbial spot. Would recommend.

I've eaten here for years. Finest catfish in America. The restaurant is clean and the wait staff is friendly and efficient. Dang I should have gotten a basket of onion rings. They looked tasty as the just came by. Everything is good but it's a homestyle catfish restaurant.

The chicken fried steak, with its cracker crumb crust, was unique and delicious! Loved their onion rings, too. (Was underwhelmed by their famous fries, but that's just me!) Service was exceptional, from the waitress to the guy who busied himself with cleaning the windowsills (how refreshing is that!) and offering us polite conversation to the guy who seated and checked...

This is the kind of place that makes me love traveling in the south. All your classic favorites are here. Chicken, catfish, steaks and more.

The parking lot was fairly empty but we went ahead and gave it a try. The food is only average tasting and portions are small for the price charged. I ordered the country fried steak platter and my wife ordered the chicken tender platter. The menu stated that all entrées come with a skillet of cornbread, but ours came with... More
