You get great service and great food. I have never been disappointed every time I have eaten there. I eat there several times a month.

The smell of the fried catfish from David's wafted over me as I walked out of the nearby post office. I had to visit after that and I am glad I did. The restaurant was incredibly clean and had a very nice atmosphere. It was lunch time and the place was very full, however, I was seated immediately. I was... More

The service and food were outstanding. Seafood platter served hot, fresh, and timely. Our server was courteous, helpful, and friendly. Everything was clean and tidy. Looking forward to going again soon.

Any time we are in Milton or passing through, we make sure to make Dave's Catfish House a part of our day. The fish is always great and clean tasting. Their coleslaw is AMAZING and I have to be careful not to fill up on it so I have enough room for the fish.

We ate at David's when we stayed in Florida at an RV park last winter. The fish was flaky and beautifully done with a light not overbearing crust. We have eaten a lot of catfish in our lives and it is either pretty darn good or pretty darn bad. This was a "good" experience.

I love whole catfish and usually its greasy or way to much breading. Davids catfish was not greasy nor did it have all of the thick breading like most places. The boiled shrimp slipped right out of the shell as well. Very good place to eat.

David's Catfish is in my home town and it is my go to restaurant when I am craving Catfish. Catfish is a fish that can be very very good or very very bad. Since Catfish are bottom feeders, their taste can be affected if they are raised on a sandy bottom or a muddy bottom. If you ever taste catfish... More

It had been a while since we ate here, so we ventured back. We got the filets and remembered why we had not been back. The mix they use for the catfish coating is very salty. The food is always done very well. All the sides are great. But we found ourselves needing tartar sauce in order to eat the... More

My brother and sister in law ordered the filets, as is custom in England. I got them to try the whole fish. They were hesitant at first, but me being a southern gal persuaded them to try it. They loved it so much that the next batch they ordered only the whole fish. It is just a different taste and... More

I love to eat the catfish at David's Catfish. Try the whole fried catfish unless you have a problem with the bones, then get the filets.
