We invite you to visit us and enjoy the best Mississippi Catfish and Gulf Seafood found anywhere. David's in Milton is your place for good ole "comfort food." Everything is prepared the old fashioned way...hand battered in a light cornmeal batter for the fish, and light flour batter on the shrimp, oysters and crab claws. Our secret recipes are made from scratch and everything is cooked to your order and always served fresh. We don't have a microwave oven in the building!

I drove over an hour with 3 other people to visit Davids. It was good, it was not wonderful. Lots of business and most were having catfish or shrimp. Very little else on the menu if one of your party doesn't want catfish. They had a hamburger steak but no chicken or other enter choices. The slaw had good texture,... More

I ordered two blackened catfish, cheese grits and baked beans. $10.29. My wife had shrimp and catfish combo for $9.49. Ice tea for two came in a quart size container, $3.98. Each portion of catfish was small, approximately 1.5"x5.0"x.75". My wife's shrimp was popcorn size and three fried catfish. (I got two, without shrimp but two more sides for more... More

An excellent place to eat especially when children are with you. Great food, great service. They have interesting decor. Pictures of all kinds of fish on the wall. Catfish is the pick in our family except one member who alwAys orders shrimp with his fish.

Went to David's for lunch after Church and had the catfish basket and it was very good. My wife had the stuffed crabs and she enjoyed those as well. Service is always good with a friendly wait staff. We will be back again

Coleslaw/salads came out first and was delicious. Our food came out & we realized no one ordered for 3 of the 4... More

We just moved to the area and saw the billboard for David's Catfish House. Kept watch in it for a couple of weeks to see the traffic that it gets and after noticing that a lot of people seem to eat there, decided that we would try it. We were very glad we did. The meal was great. The catfish... More

This place gives generous portions with the meals they serve. Needless to say, the cat fish is some of the best eating here. The hush puppies are not to be missed.

There is nothing fancy about this restauarant but if you like fried catfish, hush puppies and coleslaw, and sweet tea, you'll enjoy their food. The wait staff is friendly and the keep the a.c. on cold for those hot summer days.
