If you like catfish, this is the place to go. There are both filet and whole catfish on the buffet. We love the corn salad, string beans, and turnip greens. They have a large selection and staff keeps the buffet filled up. You have a choice of water, unsweeten and sweet tea. The choices are kept on the table. The... More

You look around to see if Elvis is sitting in the corner due to all of the memorabilia then you gravitate to the buffet line and understand why he is still in the building. Good friendly staff and good choice of food available for your eyes and fulfillment, thank you vey much.

The food is good and the service is amazing. Their sweet tea is top of the line. You can tell they are an Elvis Fan with all the Elvis Memorabilia. Very homely place, the perfect combination!!

I love Pap's Place! They have a great buffet...kind of on the pricey side....I usually just get the 3pc fish plate. Ms. Cherry fixes it and brings it back. She's a real sweetie! I guess if you're a big eater the buffet is the way to go. I just don't get my money's worth. If you get a chance, go... More

My mother and step dad, Sarah & Bill Tatum, of Starkville, Ms. have been eating here for over 25 years every week. When I come from Dothan, Al. to visit they take me to the best catfish place in the country. "PAP'S" You just got to eat here. It's habit forming. Lee Phillips

This is one of the best restaurants you'll find is this area,and they do have a few good competitors. The buffet has a wide variety of traditional southern comfort foods. Their specialty, I believe, is fried catfish, and it's "special" to me as the only fried catfish I'll eat by choice. The owners are wonderful! They will bless you with... More

We hadn't visited Pap's for about 11 years because we moved across the country. It's still great. The catfish was better than I remembered, the kids proclaimed the ribs to be better than the Rendezvous' ribs in Memphis, with tasty corn salad, decent greens, and many more southern side dishes and desserts. I think they redecorated a bit (to country... More

We called to get the address and the girl who answered the phone had to go get someone else to tell us. We looked at the buffet when we walked in and decided we better order off the menu. We asked a worker at the buffet if Thousand Island and Ranch were the only dressings they had. She said she... More
