Reviews:
We have stayed here for Spring Pilgrimage for the last 3 years. Food is great, beds are comfortable and hospitality second to none. We have stayed at Dunleith, Monmouth and others over the years, but Wilkins feels like home.

Cajun Cookin’ Restaurant

I have 5 words: There's nothing like Southern Cooking! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Those were the best shrimp I have ever tasted, EVER! The BLT was off the chain and the seafood Gumbo was different and off the chain gooooooooood! He didn't realize the gumbo would be filling so he ordered a cheeseburger, lol....he was about to pop. Everyone was so friendly and this IS a place I/we will visit again!
This is a must stop! Food was superb and the atmosphere delightfully fun! Owned and operated by a true blue New Orleanian. The muffuletta is worthy of lunch and take the rest home for dinner! The red beans and rice were piquant and just like home! If I weren't so full I'd have had one of everything...:-) Owner Chef Paul is a delight and his kitchen staff, Victoria and Rhonda can flat out do it to it!!! Will most definitely return!
Great Cajun food. Chatting with Chef Paul is an experience of its own. Very friendly place. Try the Shrimp Orleans

OHDEARLORDTHEMAJESTYOFTHEPERFECTLYMADEDONUT! Okay, now that that's out of my system ... maybe I can review this place with a bit more lucidity. I was out doing a little southeastern-usa-ride thing on my bike - kinda going out from Atlanta and riding in a big circle through the big heated area south of the Mason Dixon. A L_O_N_G day of riding found me in Natchez, MS ... still a couple of hours south of my goal for the day and with an extremely sore butt. I started looking for places to take a break when, stopping at a light, I saw this place over to the right. A light bulb went off in my head and I remembered that Alton Brown featured this place on season 2 of "Feasting on Asphalt". As those seasons were a large inspiration for the rides I try to do -- I had to try it. I'm just SO glad I did. This -- this is road food. Just a tiny shop on the side of a busy intersection selling perfectly cooked food. I waddled up to the window and ordered two donuts; a chocolate glaze and bavarian cream filled. I asked the guy at the window if I could leave the bike where it was and if there was a place to sit -- he gave me a broad smile, invited me to just hang out and pointed me to two old picnic benches on the side of the building. I gathered my donuts (and two sodas to wash them down) and sat down. The chocolate was just perfect. Melted into the top of the donut so it didn't flake off when I bit into it -- and quickly melting over my fingers. The bavarian brought something new to the table. Unlike "normal" donuts where it's just a large pastry with cream injected into the middle - this was a normal O shaped donut with the cream fried into the center hole. Of course, it was also utterly divine. The picnic benches were a nice place to relax and people watch. The place seemed primarily to be a "drive up and go" -- I was the only one sitting to eat - but I was impressed by the diversity of clientele. The businessman with dry cleaning hanging in the back of the Lexus on his way home grabbed a couple of boxes of donuts followed by a minivan mom with half a dozen kids piling in and out of the car. Overall great food, great atmosphere.
So delicious. I always get the original glazed donut. It is melt in your mouth good. The signs up say they also have tamales and hamburgers on homemade buns, but I have not been able to break myself away from the donut bag long enough to try one. Also- unlike some fancy gourmet bakeries, the prices are normal. We had 3 donuts for around $2.
Addictive like a drug... You cannot stop at one or two; gotta have an apple fritter, too. Take 'em home, close the curtains, & get the milk 'cause it's gonna be thirsty work! Confession on Sunday...

Steampunk Coffee Roasters

114 High St
Natchez, 39120
Reviews:
Exceptional! Learned about siphoning and other brew methods here. This place is to coffee what the Chimes in BR is to beer without the attitude. Unique fresh baked goods, quiche, and fresh fruit. But the star is clearly the beans. Several specific flavor and Multi national offerings. You can expect that the owner is a gracious and patient man bringing such a specific passion for coffee to our little town, but I am very thankful for it. Two other coffee/roasting shops in town, but none operated with the enthusiasm as Steampunk.
Wonderful experience! The staff taught about different types if brewing, beans, roasting etc, coffee was phenomenal and the crepes... Out of this world. Friendly and inviting atmosphere, I cannot wait to go again!
Very good coffee served by very lovely people. Great relaxing atmosphere as well. It is a wonderful place to stop in and have a nice cup of coffee and relax. The staff is knowledgable and very friendly offering suggestions on places to visit while in Natchez. I highly recommend!

Great quality food, good service. Great for dine in or carry out! My to to for sushi in this area!
Delicious!! The servers were great. The hibachi show was a lot of fun. We had a great time.
Went there for the first time last night and it was very impressive. The food and service was great. Wonderful atmosphere. My hubby ordered the fried rice and crawfish sushi and I ordered the habachi jumbo shrimp meal with vegetables and fried rice and their fried dumplins then to finish off the night we split an ice cream tempera. Every thing was delicious and not at a bad price with everything our bill was around $45.

I ordered 3 racks of ribs for a pot luck I didn't have time to cook for. Did not disappoint. Great flavor. I just wish the cook wouldn't have dosed them with a gallon of sweet BBQ sauce. The wife has had the rib tips many times.
Great service for sure, the people here had no problem helping slim down my choices, prices are definitely affordable!!! The food was good. I ordered the hot non-breaded wings, my friends ordered the small catfish plate, and a burger; nobody was disappointed, we ate in silence which indicated how great the food was! I strongly recommend!
Looks like a hole in the wall from the outside... looks just as bad on the inside... wouldn't go there after dark... but the food is good. Order from them every time I am in Natchez & they have never disappointed. Friendly service & they are quick!

Soda Pops

Reviews:
The Hawaiian Club, potato salad, and homemade banana pudding ice cream were really good but quite overpriced.
Wow. What a great find! Soda Pops sandwiches and ice cream are handcrafted and delicious. We had the BLT on French and the Ribeye supreme in sour dough. Both great and hearty. Not "fast" but quick considering it's all made fresh. Quick enough for a 1/2 hour lunch break.
Good sandwich & sides!

Cotton Alley Cafe

208 Main St

Reviews:
would definitely recommend and probably go again. The sandwiches were tasty. I had the dixie chicken.
I have been a lunch regular at Cotton Alley for several years. I have always had a good lunch and decent to excellent service. The lunch menu has a good selection of sandwiches. salads with heavier entrees such as Pasta dishes. They have an excellent burger, Caesar Salad, I like the Dixie Chicken too. The Pasta with shrimp is excellent. The earlier review saying the Pasta was terrible here I do not understand. The reviewer said go to Pearl Street for Pasta - The owners of Cotton Alley (David Browning & Guy Bass) founded PSP. I am sure any Restaurant can have a bad night. Cotton Alley is probably one of the most popular Restaurants in Natchez. It moved location and scores of positive reviews were deleted with the move. The "new" Location is attractive with some sidewalk seating, and even a more private downstairs. It is located right across from the Natchez Convention Center - it can be crowded for lunch during conventions.
This quaint little cafe is awesome. Also, when you think of cafe you probably imagine something small and quaint. While the restaurant is small and quaint its a big place. Decorated with folksy, eccentric art work its a real delight to look at everything. The food,though, is what brings folks in. Big portions and excellently prepared meals. I got the cotton alley sandwich with fries for lunch and i didnt feel the need to eat until the next day. YES...the portions are that big. It's easy find and parking is relatively easy so if you are in Natchez and you are hungry go here.

Monmouth Historic Inn

36 Melrose Ave
Natchez, 39120
Reviews:
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Monmouth Historic Inn. Everything was as promised and all the staff people were delightful. One of the best home-cooked breakfasts I have ever enjoyed eating. I would definitely stay at Monmouth again and highly recommend the property to anyone looking to stay in Natchez, Mississippi or the surrounding areas.
We took the tour of the house which had a great history and we enjoyed learning about the families that had lived there. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and I got many great pictures. Although we couldn't see it (this is a working B&B), a custom-built bed had been made for the 6'3" General Quitman. Most men at that time were only 5'4" tall. The story about the marble fireplaces was very intriguing. One fireplace was found in pieces out behind the house and put back together like a 3-D Jigsaw Puzzle. The other had been painted to resemble the first - it actually looked like marble. Fascinating painting skills using a technique called "feathering" - with an actual feather! Walking through the gazebo, and over the bridge then past the cypress trees was a pleasant stroll to see how pleasant it must have been for them. You need to put this house on your list to see when you come to Natchez.
Natchez is a beautiful little town on the Mississippi and this is probably one of the nicest places to stay in town. A converted plantation house with new rooms built on the location of old out buildings that used to be part of the place. It has a very nice bar and restaurant in the main house that are well worth a visit and the complementary breakfast every morning is quite tasty. The rooms are very nice and spacious. I stayed in one of the out buildings, Quitman's Retreat, that had three rooms and the proprietor's property. It was nice and quiet. The whole Inn is definitely oriented towards couples on a romantic get away. The canopied bed, the his and her sinks, the bathrobes, everything screams romance in your face so if you're coming through on your own like I did, you'll either find it hilariously blatant as I did, or loneliness inducing as I'm sure others have. One thing that I found troubling was housekeeping. I left my room at about 10:00 AM Sunday morning well aware of the sign that read "The Hotel is not responsible for personal belongings." So I locked my room and through my stuff in the deep closet, bringing some of my more precious items with me. I was out for many hours and probably got back around 3:00 PM. It was clear that housekeeping had been through but they hadn't finished. My room was left unlocked and there was no one around. I understand that the Inn is not responsible for stuff that I leave locked in the room, but when they leave my room unlocked and unattended, even if only briefly, it does become their problem. I won't make that mistake again.

Roux 61 Seafood & Grill

453 Hwy 61 S
Natchez, 39120
Reviews:
This is the best food we had while spending a week in Natchez, MS. The price was moderate, the service was excellent.
Ate here for dinner and loved it! Among our table we had - fresh oysters, shrimp cocktail, wedge salad, blackened catfish dinner, the combo dinner with popcorn and butterflied shrimp and the alligator cheesecake (it's savory, not sweet). Everything was good and the servers were fantastic. Highly recommend!
Roux 61 is basically a fried seafood restaurant just outside the city limits of Natchez. The menu is large but the majority of seafood is fried catfish. It's been open for over a year, but upon arriving at 5pm on a Saturday night there was almost no place to park. The wait was stated to be 35 minutes but thankfully did not take that long. The interior is open and fairly plain with lots of wood and animal heads giving it the feel of a lodge. Our appetizer was shrimp cocktail and gumbo. The shrimp cocktail was better than expected with many large shrimp nicely presented in a martini glass. The gumbo was small and acceptable, but a different tasting dark roux than I expected. The Bloody Mary was overfilled with vegetables - a very tasty drink with a large price. The side salads were the best I've ever seen to come free with a meal. They included a selection of greens (no iceberg), plus mandarin oranges, cranberries, feta and pecans. However the balsamic vinaigrette appears to contain onion powder as every bite of this delicious looking salad tasted like onion. I'll try a different dressing next time. We had a very pleasurable meal of blackened redfish over pasta and a combination of coconut shrimp and fried catfish. The redfish was a nice portion including 3 shrimp but the best part was the sauce which was very flavorful without being spicy. Still, the sauce had too much onion for my taste. The fried platter was large and delicious with very tasty shrimp and a fantastically light breading on the catfish. Service was above par. I think you'll enjoy Roux 61 if you don't mind waiting to get in.
