Description: Our farm-raised, grain-fed catfish is far superior to his muddy river cousin. Scientifically-bred and carefully tended, he has all but acquired a pedigree now that Gourmet magazine rates him the third-best-selling fish in America.Higher in protein than most meats, our freshwater catfish is becoming exceedingly popular among health-conscious American diners-and with good reason. Not only is our catfish low in cholesterol, fat and calories, he also rates high in aesthetic appeal since he has no fishy smell.It is also nutritious, healthy and downright delicious. Now, will we see you at the Annual World Catfish Festival in Mississippi next year? Or at least back at the Jumpin' Catfish next week! We will also cater for 40-500 people just about anywhere!! We come to you and cook in our catering wagon so all the food is cooked and hot on the spot!

Catfish was hot, fresh and tasty. Wanted to substitute fried okra for the beans, slaw and potatoes, but was told "no substitutions." Only way to get fried okra was from the appetizer menu for an additional $5.99. After eating fish and hush puppy, decided to try pecan pie. It was absolutely gross.

If you like southern style fried catfish, this is the place to go. They serve slaw, white beans, and hush puppies family style. Best slaw in town. They also serve chicken, seafood, and other wild game. So there is a something for everyone!

If you love seafood, you'll like this restaurant! You may have to wait a few minutes to be seated, but the menu selections and portion size are worth it. It's one of my personal favorites.

Great menu of unusual seafoods, and usual ones, too. They also have other entrée choices. Family style service. Great prices when you hit the daily specials. Not fancy. Comfortable.
