Plenty of Delicious Catfish and The Best Cole Slaw

We stopped on the way back from Vero Beach for some delicious catfish. We were not disappointed. The catfish was hot, plentiful and tasty. The cole slaw may be the best anywhere now. Being full from the abundance of catfish, we took some cobbler to go. We even took a pint of the tasty Cole... read more

Friendly waitress. Special was Mahi Mahi which was overcooked but the fried Oysters were very good. Much of the food was fried and not greasy.

Go early in the evening because it gets packed! It's locally owned and is obviously a local favorite. The special is fried catfish which my husband and son said were delicious. I ordered fried scallops, which were soft and crispy and flavorful but just FYI--they are bay scallops. (they were still delicious). We also got fried gator tail for an... More

The Catfish place is a staple in Saint Cloud. The catfish is good. I like their cheeseburgers too. Kinda pricy if you go for dinner and there may be a wait.

We had a great lunch after taking a tour with spirit of the swamp. We shared an appetizer of catfish, shrimp, gator, turtle, clam strips, and yummy hush puppies. We arrived mid-afternoon on Wednesday and the place had steady customers. We would recommend The Catfish Place to all looking for a delicious fish feed.

It's hard to beloved you are so close to Orlando when you are here! This place is a gem. We had a combo platter of gator, turtle, frog legs and catfish. It was all delicious!!! They serve plenty of "regular fair" as well. The prices are great, the food is incredible and the service is second to none.

Try turtle and gator! Besides these unique dishes the Catfish Place has awesome fresh seafood and a reasonable price! It is usually busy in there but worth the wait. Great portion size and a homely feeling. Could go eat there every week. Recommended!
