Thursday night is steak and shrimp night. The crowd is diverse yet friendly. The service is great. They also offer a variety of drinks. After dinner you can stroll along the Bluffs or visit Magnolia Casino.

Here's a great place to have lunch if you are fortunate enough to stay in Natchez, Mississippi. For a couple of Aussies on a Road Trip, this place provided us with our first Poboy experience. I had a crawfish Poboy and my mate had the catfish Poboy and we also ordered a plate of beer battered onion rings. Both sandwiches... More

Went here for a drink and were very warmly welcomed by the bartender, Justin. He even let us try beer samples before we decided. And all in all he was just very friendly so thumps up! Menu wasn't that interesting so we chose to dine at another place.

Did an order to go. Both my husband and I had the Chicken-Bacon wraps. The wraps were very large and full of flavor. Excellent. Our side were the Large Crispy Beer Battered Onion rings. Some of the Best and Crispy onion rings we ever tasted. Bowie has an excellent menu with a variety of food offerings. Would totally recommend this... More

We visited Bowies which in Natchez for a wedding. I enjoyed it very much. The food was great, wait staff was friendly and helpful and the Sweet Tea was great. For the beer drinker they had lots of different ones including several local beers on draft. I would definitely recommend this place.

We stopped in Natchez on a road trip from New Orleans to Toronto with 2 good friends from the UK. We should have looked up our options on our smart phone before choosing, but Bowie's was 80 feet from where we succeeded in finding a parking spot. There were almost no other customers and yet it took more than 30... More
