Walnut Hills

Walnut Hills

Some things never change, and then again, some changes are never noticed. But this year, Walnut Hills has seen some changes such as an extensive remodel project, including a new kitchen and the addition of a chef for the evening meal.


But the familiar mismatched rockers are still on the porch, along with whiskey bottles of the wonderful homemade hot pepper sauce on each table. And the delicious cayenne-laced fried chicken served by Miss Herdcine Williams, cook of all cooks, is still everyone's favorite. Some call this chicken the world's best!


Respecting tradition, down to the most minute detail, is what keeps the lunches and dinners popular at this Southern mecca. 


The handsome old house on Adams Street in the historic district opened in 1980 as a round table restaurant, equal to the old time boarding house style restaurants. The house was built in 1880 by the Rogers family with a striking homey presence: wide porch, tall shuttered winds, and Vicksburg pierced columns. The home's name has it own history. Centuries before the town existed, the Spanish named the area Nogales, after the walnut trees that grew along the bluffs. The 1868 house next door to Walnut Hills was restored by Mrs. Clingan and appropriately named The Nogales House.
