Love Catfish

Usually, I order all you can eat when I'm at a place known for catfish. But, I was happy with the two fillet meal. It was perfect for lunch. This place was full of local folks and we did talk across tables. This is why traveling is worth the long rides. Kimberly was our waitress and she was... read more

Good southern style cuisine, but menu seems a little limited. Service is good, and pricing reasonable. The best catfish in the local area!

I had a pleasant experience here. I was greeted promptly on arrival by a friendly employee, and enjoyed friendly/prompt service throughout my stay. The quality and taste of the food were also very good. I had the all-you-can-eat catfish fillets and was pleased that there was no wait time to get my next order of fish. My server was asking...

We went there for lunch. In reviewing price difference between three pieces of fried catfish filets and AYCE, I selected the AYCE for my $2.00 more. My dining partner got the AYCE popcorn shrimp. We were both happy with our choices and we didn't have to search for the server to get our next round. A lot of AYCE options... More

We went to celebrate a friend's birthday. We love David's catfish. We had three order the 3 piece catfish and one catfish and shrimp with a stuffed crab on the side. We all love their coleslaw! It's some of the best! Catfish was delish! Stuffed crab was very good...not too spicy. Shrimp was sooo good. Service was excellent. Also key... More

Stopped in while driving to Mississippi and were eager to try the catfish. Very disappointed. The catfish had no taste and could have been cooked crispier. Also, the shrimp were tasteless as well. They were white in color not the traditional golden brown. Friendly, courteous service and one bright spot was the coleslaw, excellent creamy and finely grated.

Our lunch of whole catfish at David's was good but I don't see anything to write home about. Everything seemed to lack seasoning.
