Description: Our farm-raised, grain-fed catfish is far superior to his muddy river...
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!

I happened to stumble upon this restaurant when driving around. I'm a sucker for authentic homestyle cooking, and this looked up my alley! We had a party of 4 and were quickly seated. Upon arrival we were given ham and beans, coleslaw, and hushpuppies. These sides made it worth it, before we even ordered the main. The coleslaw is simply... More

Jumpin' Catfish should be called Dave's Crab and Lobster House, because on Thursday nights they feature all you can eat Snow Crab clusters, and the Friday night feature is Twin Lobsters! And these are quality seafood specials. The crab legs are the larger grade of snow crab, not the small thin legs you get at Red Lobster. The lobsters are... More

This is a great family restaurant. The kids can be entertained by the stuffed wild life on the walls. You get coleslaw and beans right away. The price is reasonable and service was good.

Took a motorocoach group there on a recent Saturday afternoon. I had communicated with managers several times and they knew we were coming. One the good side....hushpuppies, coleslaw, and beans were wonderful! Fish was very good..but some guests were not fond of chicken fried steak dinner. Tables were set up for us when we arrived but was a little disappointed... More
