Catfish on the Mississippi Delta
Set on the Mississippi Delta in the central part of the state, this river community is found 70 miles northwest of McComb and 100 southwest of Jackson. Keep in mind, you don’t sit along the Mississippi River without knowing a thing or two about southern cooking.
Biscuits, catfish, fried chicken? This is why we’re here. Try a number of Natchez eateries for the best in southern fare. For a real homestyle meal, stop by Cock Of The Walk Restaurant for the perfect fried menu – and don’t forget to order the catfish.
Another great spot is Mammy’s Cupboard on Highway 61 South – an eatery you can’t miss since it happens to be a 40-foot smiling woman. For a nightcap, head to Biscuit & Blues on Main Street right on the shore of the Mississippi River.
Natchez festivals are also a must-catch. April brings the Natchez Bluff Blues Festival, and treats attendees to the crawfish boil kick-off – as well as a number of Mississippi’s culinary staples. Or visit in July for the Natchez Food & Wine Festival – a collection of southern chefs, brewers and winemakers.
