Restaurant Description
Vinegar Jim's was originally built to resemble a Natchez Trace tavern from the mid 1800's. The restaurant was named after a civil war-era character who, on a bet, attempted to carry a barrel of vinegar from the old Arlington Depot to the General Store and dropped it on his foot.

The original owners built VJ's from Poplar trees milled from their property along with salvaging 19th century home and warehouses from the Pinch district in Memphis and old mansions in various counties. Entering Vinegar Jim's is like stepping into the past.

Since then the open air porch has been enclosed to accommodate customers year-round. The lunch menu is still old southern cooking with different items daily. The dinner menu has expanded from Steaks and Grilled Chicken to Fried and Grilled Shrimp, Catfish and Salmon Grilled or Blackened, and Frog Legs and Crawfish. Lastly, Vinegar Jim's still carries on the tradition of the Homemade Fried Pies that it is famous for. Dress is casual. We hope ya'll come see us soon!
