good catfish house

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... read 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.

Food and service was real good and was pleased to see they had rebuilt it after the tornado but I have not got to eat in the new building but friends tell me that it is as good as always. Looking foward to go back

This is a repost from another site: "Katy's couldnt have found a better person endorse their resturaunt than Mr. Zimmern! After he's through eating the under cooked greasy catfish and cold stuffed crab, he can finish his meal with the cockroaches that decorate the walls and crawl up his pant leg!"

if you don't want fried, probably should skip. Other than that...huge catfish filets, hushpuppies can't be beat. Ask before you order two filrts as those are some big catfish. Very friendly and welcoming
