As a river community where cultures have always intermingled, Natchez restaurants offer some of the most delicious food and diverse dining you'll find anywhere in the South.
Of course there's traditional Southern staples. We're talking crispy fried chicken and creamy cole slaw, breaded catfish and cornbread hushpuppies, po-boys and pulled pork barbecue. We take our hospitality seriously, so whether you're from the next state over or halfway around the world, expect to feel like one of the family, and expect to leave full!
Of course, Natchez dining goes far beyond its Southern heritage, too, offering homestyle Italian, authentic Chinese and fiesta-worthy Mexican fare.
Because we're right on the Mississippi, dining in Natchez also offers an abundance of fresh, delicious seafood. In fact, when the first steamboat dropped anchor here in 1811, the newspaper didn't hail the dawn of a new economic era. The headline was "Fresh oysters available in Natchez now"!
Last but not least, foodies take note: While you can find great food in Natchez throughout the year, you especially don't want to miss the annual Natchez Food & Wine Festival in July. This culinary showcase sells out in advance, so plan ahead and get your tickets now!
