Basic Panhandle catfish joint

Good prices for seafood and fish this close to a tourist area and excellent specials every day. Hushpuppies and cheese grits are great. Crunchy layer of breading on my catfish; not too much to make it soggy. Baked beans were a little too sweet. I saved them for last like a dessert. Hostess and... read more

We were staying at a RV Park close to Milton, Florida. Saw the sign for The Catfish House. The food was very good. We had the catfish fillets and shrimp. The coleslaw was good as was the sweet tea. Our server was very friendly, the place was decorated nicely and clean.

I was actually surprised at how big these shrimp were! Fried catfish was pretty good. I've never like hush puppies, but these were amazing! The gumbo didn't impress me, it actually reminded me of a Campbell's soup I've had before..

I will start by saying that neither the wife nor I are huge fans of fried food. That being said, the Catfish here is pretty good, and not too greasy. The sides are OK, and for a quick meal in the area, not too bad overall. The other seafood place down the road, is not as good, and definately the... More

My family stopped here for dinner and it was great!! We were craving catfish so we decided to stop at David's Catfish House. Our customer service experience was superb. We were greeted promptly and seated right away at a nice, clean table. Our waitress was very nice and friendly as well. The restaurant and bathrooms were clean too. Our food... More

We dined there on a Wed. evening, July 8, 2015. Awesome, tasty food. They apparently have specials most evenings, which we took advantage of. Catfish was GREAT, nice BIG fillets, but you can also get whole, on the bone, fried catfish. The fried shrimp were really flavorful and nicely cooked. Will visit again on our next trip thru.

I didn't care for my fish/shrimp/coleslaw, but the the cheese grits were great. My family really enjoyed their catfish and coleslaw. I was really upset in the kids' menu, as the waitress said everything was fried. We ended up having to pay $8 for a single broiled filet for our son. The broiled fish is soggy; they would do better... More

Yes, the fried catfish is good but expensive. My lunch included one piece of catfish, 4 pieces of shrimp, 3 hushpuppies and my side choices were coleslaw and fries that I could not eat. They were obviously frozen fries and perhaps they were freezer burnt. They were inedible! The coleslaw was edible but left a lot to be desired. The... More

Davids Catfish House does catfish. Excellent catfish. They offer other menu items, all very good, the specialty is catfish. Mississippi catfish. I am an MS native and David is the best.

The food is good but portions are small and nothing special ...... It's the same fried food you get from down the street.
