Florida cooking at it's best!

Although they have a large number of items on the menu, it is the Florida items that are most memorable. Whether it is the fried catfish, the fried alligator tail or turtle, you will not be disappointed. This is not a restaurant to come to if you are health conscious. (Although I am sure they have... read more

This place was recommended by our fishing guide, Jay Turner (who by the way put us on some nice bass on Lake Toho!) We went twice for lunch and had shrimp, catfish, clams, cheese grits, black eyed peas and squash. Wow! If you want to go where the locals go for some of the best seafood in the area, go... More

This place has been shut down by the health dpeartment before for cockroaches climbing the kitchen walls! When I tried it, (before the shut down), I found the food to be oily (everything is fried) and battered or beraded to the point where I was unsure what I was eating. Everything on the plate tastes the same. There are always... More

Have visited several time - always pleasant people and good food. Try the fried green tomatoes! Fried fish or broiled or any way - it is always good.

We came here after swamp tour and this is definitely the best place to eat in central Florida. We had catfish, shrimp and house special. Everything is very delicious and the service was one of the best. Recommend to everything visiting the area. Btw, the turtle and alligator meat was a must try. Taste really good!

We have been eating here for years.My parents before me.Food is great and plentiful. Favorite slaw.I usually order small catfish with bones.My husband orders shrimp and filet catfish.Anything they fix is great.We like to put honey on our hushpuppies. Onions in our home fries.My only problem is long drive,but worth it.

Was visiting in the Orlando area last week and knew we would like to go back to the Catfish Place again. We had the pleasure of dining here two years ago and wanted to go back. The food was just wonderful. I had the lunch fried shrimp dinner (six large deep fried shrimp, salad, baked potato and hush puppies) and... More

We had a superb airboat tour with Spirit of the Swamp, who recommended the Catfish Place. It's a little plain from the outside and we would never have stopped here without a recommendation. We were glad we did: the restaurant was welcoming, busy with locals and had a fairly diverse menu. Okay most things were deep fried but it was... More
