My boyfriend and I both enjoyed our meals here. He got the 'all you can eat' fried catfish. Apparently for dinner you can only get the 'all you can eat'. They do not offer a catfish meal other than that at dinner. However, our very nice and friendly waitress said that you can order a meal plate at lunch time.... More

My husband and I went to this place for the first time today and was highly impressed. We are both from Mississippi and were brought up on catfish so we can truly say that this place reminds us of home. We will definitely be back and will spread the word of this amazing restaurant.

I love fried catfish and this place has it down pat. The restaurant is laid out nicely and service has always been great. I only wish they have you as much food as they do at the Catfish Place in St. Cloud.

Having lived in Mississippi, Tennessee and Arkansas previously I am accustomed to eating catfish with a bit of flavor and seasoning on the fish. Way too bland here for me. The fish is served in very small pieces rather than filets which would have been fine if there was any seasoning at all. Hush puppies OK, good baked potato and... More
