The Pilot House pays homage to its bluff-top views and was inspired by Mark Twain's Life on the Mississippi. The restaurant's appeal, much like that of the riverboat captain's quarters, serves as a meeting place where tales are great and long (but don't worry...our service isn't slow.)

Beautiful view of the Mississippi. Very attentive staff. Excellent food. Couldn't believe the restaurant wasn't packed based on our exceptional experience. This would be our favorite, go-to-restaurant, if we lived in Natchez.

My wife and I did not have a good experience the night that we went. There was a very large party in the lounge area that had most of the staff occupied. Service was incredibly slow. Our food was overcooked and very dry. That said, I would like to believe that it was just the crowd in the lounge that caused our night to be less than stellar.

The view from the restaurant to the Mississippi River would be better during daylight. The lights from the interior of the restaurant reflected on the windows making seeing the river difficult at best. It would be a great view during the day, though.

The waitstaff were rude and could not provide helpful information about the menu. Each question we asked went unanswered because "they didn't know". We hoped the food would make up for the poor service.. Boy, were we wrong. We ordered a blackend ahi tuna (rare) and a seared ducks breast (rare). The ahi came out with a sprinkling of seasoning, not blackened, and tasteless. The duck was served raw, extremely under seasoned, and was impossible to cut due to its rubberiness. The skin of the duck was not rendered and crispy.. It looked like it never touched the frying pan. This was possibly the Worst resturaunt experience we have ever had. Over the last few days, we have had many individuals tell us they had a similar experience and will never return. My heart hurts that I can not post an exciting review, I was really looking forward to a wonderful evening and the opportunity to brag about this resturaunt, unfortunately that's not the case.. 😔

Read in some reviews that the food was not up to standards. That was NOT the case with us. We ordered the grilled pork chop and the duck dishes. They both were outstanding and I was very surprised based on what I had read.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!! Great view, nice ambiance and the food we received was outstanding..

The view of the river was magnificent. The food and service were very good. We were expecting a more formal atmosphere but the clientele were mostly hotel guests, dressed in everything from covered-up swimwear to shorts and flops.

I always leave a cash tip and I always tip accordingly. When the waiter saw that I put 0 on my card for gratuity he was offended. He came to the table inquiring on our like or dislike of his service. He wanted to know why I did not leave a tip. I have never had a waiter do that it was very disrespectful and unprofessional. My bill was 70.00 I left him 20.00 at the disapproval of my dinner aquatints. We want be back.

Our food was really good but it took our waitress over an hour to get our tickets to us. We had given her our names for drinks, and our entrees and it made no difference!
We probably won’t be back

Worst service we've ever had. Lost order. Other servers: " not my job, not my problem". 2 1/2 hours to get meal. And it was Luke warm at best. And there weren't that many diners.

Had the filet for dinner, crab cakes and fried green tomatoes for appetizer. Everything was great. Topped it off with dessert, my friend had the pecan pie and I had the creme brûlée - both were excellent

The Vue Hotel has a splendid setting over looking the river. The food is very good and good service once they get you seated. Like everything at The Vue it is a little disorganized but overall a good experience.

Very good food. Great specialty drinks menu but somehow we always choose the one they’re out of. Great Cesar salad, basil pesto salmon and fried mushrooms. The crab cakes were scrumptious. The firecracker shrimp were tasty. Definitely recommend it.

Food was beautiful, in a fantastic location, we paid the bill and left a tip ,then went in the bar and the waitress came over to us to complain that we never left a big enough tip. She then proceeded to give us dirty looks for the rest of the evening.

Great customer service, good food. The shrimp salad with crab was delicious. The bread and seasoned butter is amazing. I try to eat low carb but this was too good to pass up! Make sure to get a window seat for a view of the Mississippi River.
