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

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.

Have been living in the area for 3 months and was looking for a place with all you can eat Crab Legs and found this place. It is the best Crab Legs we have had since leaving Orlando FL over 24 years ago. What a deal for just $34.. The service was excellent as our server Mallory was right there... More

Good deals on all sizes of stone crabs (seasonal) that come with plenty of sides and good service. As good a deal on stone crabs that you'll find anywhere.

Every year for 22 yrs I've had the pleasure of eating some of the best catfish, crab legs and chowder, at Catfish Deweys. My recent visit was a total LETDOWN.! The hush puppies were as hard as nails, the. corn and potatoes were cold, and the catfish tasted awful. Waitress was very professional, and asked me if anything was wrong,... More
