I'm not sure if this is a two or three star review; we went because when we were at the park across the street earlier in the day we saw their sign out front that said that the day's special was meatloaf. Hubby had been craving that meatloaf all day, so we went back for dinner later and crap. It's... More

From the daytime to the nighttime, this has always been a good choice to go to for a girls day or a date night/girls night. The bands on the weekends are usually awesome and the customer service is outstanding. Recommended for any tourist or Natchez visitors.

Good Chicken and Live Music, this was a quiet Sunday night and we had a nice relaxed meal sat outside whilst the band played, you can’t knock that. This is a big bar and grill and the music was very loud inside but we’ll cooked Southern fried chicken on the banks of the Mississippi.

Bowles is in a beautiful old building right across the street from the river park in downtown Natchez. The bartender was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on drinks and food choices, I had the artichoke, chicken, spinach pizza ( yum bang!) and my husband had the burger and said it was the best he had ever had. It's a... More

We had one of our most treasured nights of our road trip was spent here. Cocktails and karaoke what more can you ask for? Oh and ladies drink for 1/2 price on a Thursday.

Called here for a couple of beers after dinner whilst staying in Natchez. Loved the decor and especially the bar ... it's huge! Really enjoyed reading the history of the place and hearing about it from the bar man. We took our beers outside to watch the world go by. It was busy and as there was a band playing... More

Very casual bar and restaurant. We went for steak night and had the best steak I have found in Natchez. Then we went for Monday night 1/2 price wings; the lemon pepper ones were my favorite.

Bowies is directly across the street from the Grand Hotel. It offers a wide array of appetizers, bar food, daily specials, and other entrees. It has a good assortment of drinks, wines, and beers. On some nights there is also live entertainment.

I have eaten here twice. The first time was fine. The food is good. The second time (today) there was only my wife and myself in the place, and about 8 employees. 11:00 am. The staff was too busy chatting among themselves to pay us much attention. Our food took forever to arrive. The server said it came out a... More
