The Story of Vinegar Jim's


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 salvaged 19th century homes and warehouses from the Pinch district in Memphis and old mansions in various counties. Entering Vinegar Jim's is like stepping into the past.

The open air porch has been enclosed to accommodate customers year-round. Our menu has expanded from Aged Black Angus Beef, Alaskan Salmon, Mississippi Pond Raised Catfish and much more. Lastly, Vinegar Jim's is best known for its amazing Homemade Fried Pies. Try one, and you'll be hooked for life. Dress is casual. We hope ya'll come see us soon!
