Great food and service. Be sure and try the Nosser Sauce and the homemade ranch dressing! We purchase extra to take home! It is a must go to place when we travel to Vicksburg!

Party of seven. Batter fries for appetizer, fried and grilled fish or shrimp for everyone else. We all enjoyed.

My husband, son and I stopped here on our way home from Atlanta. It seems like a nice small family owned restaurant, which we like to frequent rather than large chains when traveling. In this instance, this was a mistake, as we sat there for 45 minutes without getting our food when other tables around us who arrived after us... More

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.

Voted Vicksburg's Best Catfish for the last nineteen years. Our regular catfish dinner plate includes a half pound of catfish filets-original, grilled blackened or thin-sliced with pickled onions, french fries, cole slaw and cornbread served with a glass of our specialty blended tea. Come taste the original Johnny's Sauce, a Vicksburg favorite for eighty years. Our specialty dessert is Mississippi Mud Pie. We proudly serve Pepsi beverages distributed by Brown Bottling Group.
