This place specializes in catfish which is fine if that is what you desire. If not, and you are there on a weekend when there are no lunch specials......find another spot. They also charge you more on the weekends which is unfair.

The catfish is their specialty and does not disappoint. I would also recommend the blackened shrimp. The Johnny sauce they make themselves is really good too.

Voted Vicksburg's Best Catfish for the last nineteen years. Our regular catfish dinner plate includes a half pound of 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, a Vicksburg favorite for eighty years. Our specialty dessert is Mississippi Mud Pie. We proudly serve Pepsi beverages distributed by Brown Bottling Group.
