Wonderful place to visit after visiting the beautiful KY Lake area

Excellent food & wonderful staff. Sometimes there is a wait but the food is definitely worth it. Catfish, coleslaw, white beans, hush puppies & baked potato are my favorites!

Loved the catfish but do not order the chicken. Tastes like frozen patties. Quick service, fun antique decor. Felt rushed, moved quickly. Would go back for the catfish. Do not order home fries.

We don't come here often enough even though they serve the best fried catfish within fifty miles. Although they offer a grilled fish and fried chicken options, we've never deviated from their always delicious and perfectly prepared fried catfish, served piping hot. Can't imagine the chicken not being as flavorful, crunchy and tasty as their fish. May be worth experimenting... More

Every year, we take 35 people to Catfish Kitchen as part of our annual family reunion at Cozy Cove. They always honor the reservation, the tables are set and ready, the slaw/hushpuppies/beans are flowing and the family has a great time. The menu is fantastic (from unlimited catfish to clams to fried pickles as a starter). We have a kids... More

What can I say. When you visit the south you need to have catfish. I cannot argue with anyone that has given this place rave reviews. I had a few new dishes that I'm not familiar with and everything was great. If you have a group call ahead but if you have to wait it is worth it. The fish... More

We have made this a dinner destination each year we return to the area. The catfish is wonderful. With your meal you get beans, slaw and hush puppies family style. There is always a wait so try to get reservations. While waiting you and the kids can feed hush puppies to the huge catfish, turtles and geese at their pond.... More

I've eaten at this restaurant for years, but since it is local for me, I just haven't written about it. If you are in the Paducah, Calvert City, Benton, Eddyville Kentucky area and you like Catfish, you NEED TO VISIT CATFISH KITCHEN! Their fried catfish is awesome. The grilled fish is good to, BUT you have to call ahead for... More

we have been here before and the way the restaurant is situated directly next to the pond with large floor to ceiling windows is lovely. There is a long wait here on the weekends for good reason, the food is good and a two piece catfish dinner with beans, hush puppies and coleslaw and a potato is only 9.95. They... More

Catfish Kitchen has wonderful fish with all the fixins. If there is any hush puppies left you can take them outside to their deck and the fish in the pond will come right up to the edge of the deck and wait for you to throw the crumbled up hush puppies to them in the water. It's really fun for... More
