Truly Southern Fried

If you're looking for that home town local cuisine, this is the place to go. Service is great and VERY friendly. Portions were HUGE! It was not what us Canadians were expecting. Southern fried is not the same as maritime/British style fried fish. (this is NOT fish & chips!) All in all we were... read more

Overall the catfish is great! The service....ahhhh not so friendly sometimes and slow. The health inspections haven't been up to par either lately so I'm thinking it will be a long while before I go back....

My husband and I had lunch at the Catfish during our trip to Florida. We wanted to try fried gator for the first time. This restaurant has a diner feel. Our server was very friendly and she even talked to us about how they catch gator and prepare it. The gator was ok very chewy but I think that's just... More

have visited the Catfish Place on many occasions, taking family members whenever they are in town (from twenties to nineties). Always had a great meal. Tonight was special. My husband and I ate off the midweek special menu. More than enough. Butterfly shrimp NOT popcorn type. Father in law who is ninety loved it.

Had the opportunity to have lunch at the Catfish Place on Monday, 3/2/2015. Value is very good. The food was very good, and provided good value. This is a great place to go for a basic meal. I had fried shrimp, which came with fries and a salad, for about $8.00. We were a party of 5, and everyone enjoyed... More

The restaurant is rather unassuming located on a major road through town so don't pass it up. We had the appetizer portion of Alligator (the best I have ever eaten) which is ample for a meal if you choose. It also cost the same as a meal so share it with everyone. The Catfish dinner is more than ample so... More

Appears to be a favorite of locals and that's great with us. Their menu is extensive on the seafood side. Sounded interesting. But we both opted for catfish. After all, you mustn't ignore the name of the place. The fish was fried just right. It was cut unto smaller strips. But that didm't matter. It was great. Couldn't find a... More

Never haven eaten gator or catfish we went to this place by chance. As the signs says. It's for locals... However, The food is really good and I guess if you are a regular they will be friendly. We are not and the service was ok. Most of the items on the menu are fried. It could be a great... More

Our airboat capt hooked us up with this place. I've eaten gator before when I was in Texas and this was by far much better. We tried the catfish too. Both were top notch! This is a great place to eat! But, they could have been a little more friendly.
