Great Food Not Healthy

Everything is Fried. Really everything is not fried but this is not the place to go for a healthy dinner. The food is good and there is Southern Hospitality. I like environment of a southern mom and pop restaurant. The facility is a little tired so don't expect a perfect chain restaurant. They... read more

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

We saw this place listed in "Enjoy Florida" magazine and thought we'd give it a try. We were excited to get away from all the chain restaurants in Orlando and experience a place that was a bit more authentically Florida. We enjoyed the delicious catfish and clams, and thought the fried shrimp was amazing. Our server was very friendly and... More

I've never eaten catfish before going to The Catfish Place in St. Cloud with my daughter and two grandsons, ages 9 and 7. When I shared this with the friendly server, she immediately brought out a little bowl with a piece of catfish for each of us. What a wonderful service that put me at ease. I learned that indeed,...

Ok, let's start with the positives. The restaurant offers a variety of nightly specials. We visited on a Tuesday night and therefore were lucky enough to have the "Two meals for 16.99". The provide a smaller menu to choose from for the special, but we still found that it had plenty to choose from. The place was packed when we... More

Family owned business that is always crowded with locals. Yummy corn fritters and hand breaded Okeechobee catfish. Lots of sides, including fried okra and fried green tomatoes.

How ironic that I live on Florida's Space Coast, minutes from the ocean, yet drive an hour inland to find seafood in St. Cloud that is better than anything closer! The Catfish Place does a great job with the eponymous catfish, with shrimp, with red snapper -- in fact, with everything we've tried so far. Even their hushpuppies are perfectly... More
