The catfish plates are one of my favorites, with the fish being cooked to perfection! I also recommend their potato salad, which is... read more

Based on Trip Advisor reviews of Woods Place, we decided to give it a try. The service was efficient and friendly. The food was good and the portions were huge. Within our... More

We came here as a group. This was our lunch stop on a motorcycle road trip. We had reservations and when we arrived our tables were ready and had bread, hush puppies, butter and tartar sauce waiting. Our waitress (sorry I forgot to get her name) was absolutely on the ball. She was one of the best servers I've ever... More

If you visit Camden, Ar., this is a must on your places to dine. James Woods and his staff are fantastic, I have eaten there many times and never disappointed. If you live in Camden then you know the truth of what I am saying.

Great southern food including the best catfish and hush puppies and fresh rolls. Very friendly service! On the walls are shelves of old southern products like the grape soda called Grappette.

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
