Great crab legs

Took 6 people (3 adults, 3 teens) to visit on a busy Sunday night. Made reservations and were seated within 10 minutes. Ordered ribs, chicken tenders and snow crab legs. All were above average, especially the crab legs, 2 of which were all we could eat. They kept coming, fresh and hot, unlike... read more

My daughter and I went to Catfish Deweys for the first time in a long time. We had previously had a couple of bad experiences but decided to give it another try. I'm glad we did. I have a severe shrimp allergy and requested a combo plate without the shrimp. Unfortunately, someone did not get the message that is was... More

Went here based on several recommendations in tour books and on Trip Advisor. The food was amazing, huge portions and good selection. Sonya, our waitress was wonderful and attentive. We ordered crab legs, catfish and shrimp and swamp platter (gator, catfish, frog legs). Everyone brought home huge servings of leftovers.

Up until we visited Catfish Dewey's we had been pretty under whelmed with the food in Ft. Lauderdale. We chose this place based on the Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed! Our waitress Jen was fantastic and attentive, she kept up with her multiple tables and never missed a beat! My son, a Crab Leg fanatic, was thrilled with... More

All you can eat catfish, crab legs, and shrimp. Great little place in the middle of the city. One of my favorites in the area, down sound is, catfish is farm raised and not river caught.

I love this true southern fried seafood restaurant as a rare indulgence, though it isn't for everyone. Crowded during most meals with a diverse crowd. Don't go for the atmosphere or look to closely around the bathrooms. Hush puppies and fried shrimp are my favorites and they have all-you-can-eat specials throughout the week - catfish all the time.
