I had a little bit of everything they sold but everything had 0 flavor , I mean not even salt and pepper were used , they only deep fry everything in a flavorless batter it was so disheartening when we let the waitress know we did not like it, she got upset in a shouting like voice saying we have...

We stopped here on the way back from Kissimmee Swamp Tour (which was great; see separate review). We couldn't decide what to get and there are just three of us, including our 9-year-old daughter. We ended up with way too much food even though we only got two entrees. It's because we wanted to try the appetizers. We did the... More

The Catfish Place was recommended by our airboat captain at 'Spirit of the Swamp', so my family decided to eat here on the last day of our Florida vacation. The service was good, with the waitress taking the time to explain the menu items. She even brought out a small plate of catfish for us to sample before ordering. I... More

My boyfriend and I LOVE The Catfish Place. We come here every time we are in Central Florida. The food is fantastic. I always order the fried catfish with hush puppies, a side salad and the vegetable of the day. The catfish is always cooked perfectly and is super white, flakey and delicious. The service is very good. This is... More

The special was Alligator, turtle, frogs legs and catfish ;-) with chips of course Service was good and food was deep fried in a crispy batter so you needed the waitress to point out what you were eating. The did of course do more... More

My family and I were visiting my cousin and she recommended this place for dinner on a Thursday night. It was pretty busy so it took a few minutes for our waitress to appear but it wasn't too long of a wait (plus we weren't in a hurry!). We ordered drinks and an appetizer of fried green tomatoes - we... More

Wow! Found this in a coupon book for Orlando and it was advertised where the locals eat with a 10o/o coupon. I love places that are not chain and we entered the address in my phone and took off for we weren't sure where. We were not disappointed , knew immediately we were at a local spot when several of...

Visited this place with a group of friends. I had their catfish dinner. They're small strips of fried catfish. It wasn't anything special. However you do get generous portions for lunch. The hushpuppies were very good. I got mixed reviews from everyone in the group. It was very busy when we had arrived and still just as busy when we... More

Our family visited this restaurant at the recommendation of our tour guide, Dennis, from Wild Florida Airboats, and thought it was great! It was obviously a local favorite judging from the people there. We had catfish and gator tail - food was well prepared and delicious! We are planning to return to Florida in February, 2015 and will definitely return... More

Visited following recommendation from Scott (Orlando airboat tours). Coming from the UK and keen to experience something good, local and not Disney for a change - this fitted the bill. Had the fun of eating catfish, gator, frogs legs etc. You could tell from the attendance by locals that this is a valued restaurant. The only interesting/strange thing is how... More
