Would like some Vicksburg MS and surrounding area restaurant recommendations

We are going to be in Vicksburg MS for a few days and would appreciate some restaurant recommendations. We drove through there a year or so ago and ate at the round table at Walnut Hills so that will probably be on our list.

  1. I haven't been yet, but the Old Southern Tea Room has re-opened. I'm "friends" with them on facebook and the daily lunch specials that they post every day sound wonderful! You can read more about them here:

    The Tea Room
    4513 Old Shell Rd, Mobile, AL 36608

    1. Walnut Hills is outstanding. Go to Rusty's for great steaks and seafood. Here's a few suggestions.

      Main St. Market Cafe @ 902 Cherry St., Vicksburg, MS. 601 - 634 - 8088.
      Roca Restaurant and Bar @ 127 Country Club Dr., Vicksburg, MS. 601 - 638 - 0800.
      Rusty's River Front Grill @ 901 South Washington St., Vicksburg, MS. 601 - 638 - 2030.
      Solly's Hot Tamales @ 1921 South Washington Street, Vicksburg, MS 601 - 636 - 2020.
      Walnut Hill's Restaurant @ 1214 Adams St., Vicksburg, MS. 601 - 638 - 4910. *

      Solly's Hot Tamales
      1921 Washington St, Vicksburg, MS 39180

      Main St Cafe
      100 S Main St, Yazoo City, MS 39194

      1. You should visit historic Natchez, MS if possible. Stop by Old Country Store on # 61 on your way. Rosswood is a great place to spend the night. Good luck.

        Rosswood Plantation @ 2513 Red Lick Road, Lorman, MS 601 - 437 - 4215.
        Old Country Store @ 18801 Hwy 61, Lorman, MS 601 - 437 - 3661.

        Old Country Store
        18801 Highway 61, Port Gibson, MS 39150

        1. re: Littleman

          I want to thank everyone for their suggestions. We ate lunch at Walnut Hill at a round table (round tables are only at lunch). The food was very good, but the vegetables were luke warm or cold. Fried chicken was not on the round table menu that day, but they made some special for us. For dinner we went to Rusty's. The manager at our hotel told us that if we weren't very hungry (which we weren't) and if we wanted grouper, to order the grouper sandwich instead of the grouper dinner. The fish on the sandwich was very good (and a large portion) and the sandwich was about 1/3 the price of the dinner. The next day we had a buffet at one of the casinos and it was ok, but not great (however, it was fine for the price). That night we at dinner at Billy's which is an Italian restaurant in the outlet mall (someone at our round table had suggested it). We were pretty full from lunch so we split a Pizza. Not my favorite meal. On Sunday we ate lunch at the Old Southern Tea Room. It was ok, but not great. The shrimp and grits needed a lot of seasoning, the tea biscuits looked and tasted like they had been reheated. and the other selections were limited..

          We would definitely eat again at Walnut Hill and Rusty's.
