The waitress seemed short and impersonal at first but improved throughout the experience. Hush Puppies were my favorite thing and the food was overall OK. Just average katfish in my opinion though especially to have it in the restaurant name. And I hate when places do not take American Express. Personal peeve.

A great very casual & very rustic restaurant with friendly service, delicious entrees (mostly deep fried) and exceptional deserts. The catfish I had and the shrimp my wife had were done perfectly with a crispy batter. The pecan pie and the CARAMEL pie were tasted homemade. Grease, salt & sugar; if the heart can take it, it is well worth... More

The sweet slaw and hushpuppies are great. The catfish and baked potatoes were also good. The portions were a little lacking but the price was inexpensive, so if you're hungry order a larger plate. We had to wait a long time (Sunday lunch) so that may have played a part in being extra hungry.. Very busy, so they must be... More

Mexican restaurants give you complimentary chips and salsa. They give you hushpuppies and cole slaw here for free. Excellent idea! The food was absolutely fantastic! The server we had was very efficient and personable! They have miniature fishing rod and reels on the table as decorations. The service was quick and the prices are lower than expected for what you... More

McDonald's makes better fish. everything was drenched in grease, took a couple of bites and had to leave it was so awful. The worst fish I have ever tasted and that's if you can find it in the batter.

Ate here a few weeks ago while visiting family in the area. Was very excited to have the fried catfish. However, the fish was very muddy tasting and the batter was missing something. I believe it need a touch more salt. To be honest I think Cracker Barrel makes better fish. Was overall let down.

We had shrimp, catfish and chicken strips between the two of us. It was all delicious. The cole slaw and sides were good also. The prices were very reasonable and it was a good amount of food.
