We were in Batesville a few days ago and wanted to eat before driving home. We picked Natalie's, as it was rated the best in Batesville. We were very pleased with our choice.

You order at the back counter and take a number. The staff then brings your food to your table. All the staff was friendly and efficient.

We both had the special, Shrimp Etouffee. It was excellent, just loaded with shrimp and spicy enough without being overpowering. Served with sweetened green beans and a roll it was a fine meal. Also a compliment about their iced tea, not too strong, not too weak, just right.

We'll be looking for an excuse to return to Batesville and eating at Natalie's.

Recommended highly.

Have wanted to try Natalie’s every time we come to Batesville for Business at Lyon College but either it is during the week and it is after hours OR on the weekend. So this time we made extra effort when we had to be at the College for a weekend visit. Drove up early to try lunch. So thankful we did!

Natalie came up to us while we were studying the menu. Told her it was our first time and she was so very warm and welcoming. She had us try samples of things we were interested in before we ordered. I’ll be honest, every bite we tried was AWESOME! We ended up trying the meatloaf, pot roast open face sandwich and the cheesy chicken spaghetti. All delicious. The Mac and cheese is the bomb!!! The sweet green beans are wonderful as well. Wanted dessert but was so very full had to pass until a future visit. If you get the opportunity you MUST eat at Natalie’s .... you will NOT be disappointed!

We stopped in for a bowl of soup while Christmas shopping. I ended up having the incredibly delicious avocado shrimp salad and my partner enjoyed the chicken noodle soup. The food was served quickly. The atmosphere is bohemian. I think we found a new favorite lunch spot when we get to Batesville.

Wonderful food and service! A nice surprise in a small town. The rolls are huge, fresh and delicious! One of the best chicken condom bleu I've had.
