Ranked #49 of 206 restaurants in Olathe
Cuisines: American, Seafood, Healthy, Family Fare
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!

Attended event with catered food. Catfish was very good and not greasy. My favorite! Chicken, beans, slaw where also great! Used to frequent jumping catfish when I lived in k.c. area. Still great!

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!

We visit twice a year when in Olathe, last Friday night was a super busy night and Cindy had her hands full with the largest section. But she kept up great! We always had fresh water and drinks, our food came out hot and she was very cheerful, even with several large parties seated,in her section. As always the food... More

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.

The place was not very clean, at least not our table and the bathroom was not the cleanest place. If the places customers can see are dirty, makes one wonder about the kitchen and food contact surfaces. The food was hot and good.

Although this business has been here many years it was our first visit. The restaurant was almost empty the night we ate here so there was a server for each table. As a result service was excellent. Food was okay, but nothing special. Had fried chicken and fried catfish.

I just left Jumping Catfish, after ordering the 3 catfish meal plus a side fried okra (to go). After waiting all of 3 minutes, I knew that my food was just grabbed from the buffet, and it was going to be unpleasant. While in the car, my wife and I decided to taste the food, before we got home; and... More
