Best hushpuppies!

We eat at Woods every time we are in Camden. The fried catfish is always good and the hushpuppies are wonderful!

Several months ago I surprised my parents with takeout as a celebration for my father's 71st birthday. There was several things wrong with our order that night and the quality was subpar. However, the restaurant gave us a gift card to make amends for the mistake. This past visit was our return, utilizing their hospitality. Our waitress was extremely friendly... More

Not saying it was bad though. Food and service were both good, chicken fry was huge and wife and I could share it and it was plenty for both of us. Would like to have tried breakfast there but had to move on down the road.

I was surprised at how big the portions are. Certainly you get more than you pay for. Typical southern style menu. Lots of fattening fried food, but they also offer salads. If you are watching your weight, might want to order the salad. For me, the other choices were too tempting.

This is a hometown restaurant that I frequent a few times a month. I am never disappointed. Fish, shrimp, bottle caps... it's all good. Our service has always been very accommodating - whether it's just the two of us or a party of 10. My only complaint is the value... seems to be a bit expensive for what it is.... More

Good food at Woods Place in Camden. Known for Catfish but have great Steaks and Burgers. Locals love the homemade daily lunch specials. The rolls and hushpuppies they give you are mouth watering (and they are free!). You have to try this place if in Camden. Open everyday 11-9. This is probably the best mom and pop restaurant in South... More

Wood's Place has the best catfish & hushpuppies in the state. It is worth a drive to Camden. The building was originally a Big T (Tastee Freeze), so it lacks ambiance, but the staff is friendly and it is a good value.

Don't miss Woods Place if you're in Camden, AR! The rolls alone are worth the trip, but throw in catfish, hushpuppies or fried chicken or pot roast and vegetables and you won't leave hungry. Friendly service, local owner whose employees have are long-term workers there…..
