We tried the Catfish Place based upon Tripadvisor reviews, and were severely disappointed. The servers were nice, but inattentive, and the food was borderline inedible. The fried okra was good, but basic, and that is the only positive I can say about the meal. I also got a sampler with broiled flounder, shrimp, sauteed scallops, and crab legs. The flounder,...

We went to The Catfish Place because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. Being a long term Florida cracker resident being born on the west coast of Florida I am very familiar with Florida's seafood cuisine especially Florida's fried seafood cuisine. I was weaned on fried shrimp fried scallops, and fried fish. My family was constantly out on the... More

I had the sampler and tried a few other things that others ordered. The gator was ok. The crab was a bit over cooked. The fish was unappealing. The scallops were rubbery and tasted fun. Everyone at my table though the meal was pretty bad. There better placed in town for seafood.

captain Jack told us this was the best place in St. Cloud. He was so right! We shared an appetizer of turtle and alligator. Our server brought us some catfish. If we had not eaten about an hour before we would have ordered two entrees. So very good! Don't miss this spot after you take an airboat your with Captain... More

The Catfish Place is iconic in St Cloud. Usually always busy, especially in the winter when all the "snowbirds" descend on this small town. Great dinner values, too. Special 2-for dinners on M-T-W make this an affordable option for repeat visits. Wild catfish is always on the menu as are other fish and seafood. Good hush puppies and sweet tea.... More

Family had wanted to take me to this place for some time. Glad I did as I really enjoyed dinner here. Friendly waitress and huge fish portions. Of course I had to have the fried catfish which was done quite well. Light breading and good flavor. Coleslaw was good; creamy and sweet. Large baked sweet potato/potatoes as a side option.... More

We went in to try the Gator and it was simply fantastic, delicious. Our server, I can remember her name but she was perfect, looked after us and couldn't be better!

I guess we should have known, but the reviews were good, so we tried this restaurant. If you want big platters of fried food you will probably like it. We would have been happy with some healthier menu choices.
