Started out with the alligator sausage and shrimp cheesecake. The low country shrimp and grilled oysters were out of this world. We finished by sharing a Mississippi Mud Cake. We both decided to retire this meal

My husband had the biggest raw oysters he's ever seen - A meal in itself!! From the salads to the dinners we had a great dining experience. The coconut shrimp was the best and more than I could eat. My husband enjoyed the catfish. Sweet Liza was our waitress and she did a great job! We've been in the South... More

Nice, casual place with lots to choose from. We had raw oysters and oysters diablo - they were better than those we had at an oyster festival recently in Texas. We actually liked the Oysters Diablo better. We also ordered a very rich, but tasty, appetizer - Shrimp and Alligator Cheesecake. Try it - different, but very good. The Bloody... More

I've eaten here several times now and always found it pretty good, but not outstanding. The menu is large, with lots of variety. One thing I've noticed is that they seem to often be out of menu items, which is kind of weird. Overall though, Roux 61 is a good choice for both lunch and dinner.

I want to clarify that we cook and travel a lot, so we have pretty high standards. That being said, the oysters diablo are nothing short of amazing. Seriously, don't skip this appetizer. The restaurant itself has a cool vibe. But----- the rest of what we ordered was meh....average. Nothing stood out. I should also note that we didn't find... More

On a recent trip from Jackson,Ms to Florida my family and I decided to try Roux 61 which on Hwy 61 in Natchez,Ms . We learned quickly that we made a great decision. We began with Louisiana's finest oysters buttered, cheesed, and chargrilled they were fabulous. Next we had a mountain of nacho chips topped with a crawfish, shrimp, and... More

This place is so good. It is busy though on Saturday night, so allow for that. We got seated immediately because we were ok with sitting at the oyster bar but there was a line out the door for regular seating. We ate raw oysters, chargrilled oysters, friend green tomatoes, crawfish cheesecake, gumbo, etoufee, and wedge salad. ALL were amazing!!... More

Food and atmosphere here is pretty good. If you are hungry do not pass it up because there isn't much in either direction. Typical southern fare with their own twist.
