Unique building and great food

Yes the food was so good no matter what you ate but let me tell you about the building which was a building inside of a building. Take an old log cabin....have dining rooms inside and around it and you get this restaurant. It's just amazing how this cabin is preserved and how this restaurant was... read more

The staff were all very friendly! Sort of seemed like a big family with frequent customers. The appetizers (complementary hush puppies and coleslaw; and the fried pickles we ordered) weren't bad, they just really lacked seasoning. We were kinda disappointed...until we got our BBQ pork sandwiches. They were AMAZING. The pork is smoked on site and it is so very... More

Went to this restaurant on a Wednesday evening in December with out-of-state guests. We are new to the area and had not been here before. We loved the building and the server. The young lady told us about the history of the building and got the answers to any questions that we asked and she didn't know. She brought cole... More

Passing through on our way home from Destin, Florida, this restaurant was recommended by hotel staff and we were delighted we took their recommendation. Historical building (150 yr old log cabin transported to current sight) provided great atmosphere. The proprietor came over to our table and talked about the history. Wait staff was very pleasant and helpful. Hush puppies and... More

We told the hostess at the town's welcome center that we were only going to have one meal on our brief visit to Alabama...where does she suggest? She said Katy's Katfish had the best chicken fingers! She was right! The catfish, fries, unlimited slaw & unlimited hush puppy's were all great. Their special sauce for dipping the chicken fingers was... More

This place it tucked away an hour outside of Chattanooga, and its just a really great restaurant. From seafood dishes to BBQ to steak, and of course their famous fried catfish, All at prices you won't believe. Service is really friendly, and plenty of parking and seating. If you're in the neighborhood, stop it, I don't think you'll be disappointed.... More

We stopped by at 5:00. Had chicken fingers, catfish with baked potato as a side. All fresh and piping hot. They make their own breading for their fried meat and its light, crispy and tasty. They make their own sauces too. They do give you their house-made slaw and hush puppies first: both excellent. The portions of everything were generous.... More
