I was told this restaurant was one of the best in Vicksburg and it really was. The fried chicken was the best I have ever had. All of the sides were delicious and the service was very fast and friendly. We went there for lunch and enjoyed it so much that we went back the next day for dinner. This... More

Walnut Hills was recommended to us by the chamber of commerce. It lived up to it! The food was tremendous. Kenny was our waiter and he was superb. Great ambiance. Friendly staff.

The restaurant is in a fairly large 19th century house. It could be cosy and “of the period” but it manages to be totally soulless. It’s a rabbit warren of a place and they spread the customers out between the various rooms. So, there’s a couple of occupied tables in this room, another couple in that room and, in the... More

We went there for lunch and had the choice of one of two meat selections, two sides, rolls and iced tea for $10. I had fried chicken, chose breast, rice and beans and green beans, my wife also had fried chicken breast with fried corn, cole slaw, and added on mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious and the chicken was crispy... More

Visited Walnut Hills while staying at a nearby B&B. Very conveniently located in the historic district. Beautifully restored Civil War Era mansion. Great food & service. Highly recommended.

Drove 6 hours and postponed lunch until we arrived. Oops! It was 2:30 and many places were closed for the "gap" between lunch and dinner. Based upon a recommendation, we headed to Walnut Hills. Wow. Had delicious late lunch in a cozy, historic atmosphere. I ordered pork medallions with cranberry pecan praline sauce (not too sweet as the tart berries... More

This is a very layback restaurant. Wood floors, nice atmosphere. Nice casual dining. Quiet. We could actually talk to eachother. Food was good, but not outstanding.

We visited this on a tour recommendation and we were not disappointed. My husband said the fried chicken was the best he has had in a very long time. I am vegetarian/ vegan, and while I know the food was not vegan, I appreciate the vast amount of vegetables that were available to choice from for a vegetable plat.

We ate here. Fried Chicken and Rib Plate 4 beers $75. No atmosphere even though it was in a old home it was not old anymore it looked more like a diner inside. Can't say much about it except food was good but I have never paid $22 for a plate of chicken with mashed potatoes. Won't go back just... More

Walnut H, Manager at Walnut Hills Restaurant, responded to this review

We’re sorry you felt that way, Elaine. Our philosophy is that it’s not about the quantity of food on your plate, but the quality of ingredients and preparation that goes into it. Of course cheaper options are available at fast food restaurants, but we use higher quality meat and prepare it using an old family recipe passed down in the... More
