Catfish kingdom of the world

Last fall we ate on a Friday nite and the special was catfish. Now I've had catfish just about at every restaurant in the universe. Some good and a lot not so good. Boy was I surprised when my plate arrived. No strips, no steaks but a whole channel cat fried to perfection with what was obliviously... read more

Yes, the view is wonderful. The service is always professional. But, the food is why we go to Janssen's. I do not review a restaurant based upon one visit. My wife and I have dined there about six times. Each visit was 5 stars. They certainly have a superb salad bar. I order the same dish every time while my... More

The food here is remarkable. I had the filet one night and salmon with horseradish sauce the next. Both meals were cooked to perfection. Two of the best meals I have had anywhere and that has been many meals over this great United States. The server was attentive and always had a smile even though they were packed both nights...

Four of us had brunch here recently, and really enjoyed the nice view and delicious food. There are lots of choices on the Sunday brunch buffet. It's one of the best restaurants in the area!

The view was great sitting outside. The server was on top of things and the food was well above average. Eating outside is much better than eating inside at Janssen's unless it is bad weather. In a big city, this would be an average to just above average restaurant but for the few dining options in this area, Janssen's is... More

Had heard good things about Janssen's - all true! We dined on the patio mid-afternoon on a Friday - no wait, attentive service, phenomenal view of Greers Ferry Lake, terrific Chicken Caesar Salad and above average burger. We were able to order a side of sliced avocado for the toddler - a somewhat rare occurrence when venturing too far from... More

It was great but if you are a large party split up and and put separate names on the list !! Or they will rip the wait staff off and add a 15% sure charge not 15% gratuity !! To your bill !!! I feel really bad for our awesome waitress !! The owner said they don't prefer large groups... More

We generally enjoy dining here. The food is pretty good given the options available in Greers Ferry, and the desserts are homemade and huge. However, if you are visiting anytime between Memorial Day and Labor day, expect a huge wait for a table (typically around 2 hours at peak dining times). Knowing this, I recently called them to place a... More

We arrived by boat and docked at the restauant's slips. We called before and tables we set for our large party. Great food and service.

The view here is incredibly relaxing. The food was very good and the cheesecake was home made and worth the trip itself. I had the cheeseburger and fries both were great but the burger was cooked and seasoned perfectly. If you're in the area please stop in!
