The staff was very attentive and friendly. My husband had the chicken fried steak. It was average, without much flavor. I had the fried fish platter and it was very good except a bit salty (and I like salt). The fish was cooked to perfection,...More

Looking for something different for dinner. Tried the grilled catfish. It was delicious. I previously had the fried catfish on many occasions but this was my first time trying the grilled version. Will definitely try again.

The owner's son has taken over and he was raised in this business. We do not expect any changes in our service or attention to our customers. We will greatly miss Rowdy but we are excited about what his son brings to the business. Please...More

Son had the catfish which was delicious . I had the Rowdy burger, also delicious . The only disappointment was the mac & cheese. I think they forgot the cheese. Very bland. Kraft out of the box is better.

Below average, totally ordinary very greasy grub. Lots of fried stuff, a salad bar that seems like a Wendy's circa 1973 and a menu lost in the same era. At least it was open and the waitress was lovely. The food however is totally below...More

We actually ended up at Rowdy's due to the place we wanted being closed. Let me start with how good the thin fried fish tasted. My new favorite. Mac & cheese tasted homemade and the hush puppies were the best I've had. We go to...More

This place specializes in catfish which is fine if that is what you desire. If not, and you are there on a weekend when there are no lunch specials......find another spot. They also charge you more on the weekends which is unfair.

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.
