good food but no anything special

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

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.

This restaurant is definitely low end but food is good. I had the jumbo shrimp/fish combo. All was good including the cheese grits & coleslaw. My son however had the chicken strips & didn't care for them.

The family decided to have lunch at David's Catfish House in Milton, Fl. after my granddaughters daycare class performance. Watching a group of three year olds try to sing songs they have practiced for months while excited parents wave, comment about which one is theirs really gets one ready for a peaceful meal that can really be enjoyed.
