Rowdy's is always a place that we have to stop to eat when we make it back to Vicksburg. Yesterday we had lunch and Rowdy's did not disappoint.

We enjoyed the fried fish. The cornbread muffins were excellent as well as the greens. I recommend this place for the fish.

We stopped for lunch while visiting Vicksburg. My husband and I both had the fried catfish and really loved it. We split a piece of Mississippi mud pie for dessert...d-lish! Our server was both friendly and helpful. We will definitely stop next time we're visiting.

Lived there for 18 years. Every time we go back we hit the place up for batter fries and “Johnny sauce”. GET EXTRA sauce. Their MS Mud Pie is very famous as well.

Thanks for returning to Rowdy's! We agree..batter fries & Johnny's sauce is the perfect combination. And, always end your experience with Mud Pie.

Our regular catfish dinner plate includes 6 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 over batter fries, a Vicksburg favorite for the last 65 years. We have a broad range of items for all ages and tastes.
