We eat there very often. The fish is cooked to perfection. I love the slaw and beans and hushpuppies that are complimentary! The fried shrimp is so tender and the home made cobblers are amazing~! The staff and servers are all so nice and friendly.

I have eaten at Catfish Kitchen for years and there is no better place to eat a meal in western Ky! They absolutely load you up with hush puppies and other vegetables before your meal and the servers are the best in the industry!

Get there early or be prepared to wait... but it's worth it. A good wait is a good sign for good food and this one has it We try to get there before 5:00... just FYI.

This is by far the best catfish dinners in the 'Western Kentucky area. Good atmosphere and fish, white bean and fried pickles are all great. Reservations probably needed on Friday and Sat nights especially. Fish is crisp and golden fried to perfection and generous in quantity. Always a full house of tourists as well as locals here as has been... More

Let me start by saying that I can take it or leave it when it comes to fish. That was before we went to Catfish Kitchen. My wife and I have become fans of this restaurant. My daughter doesn't like fish, so she goes for the chicken dinner when we go there. All of the food is excellent. The nonstop... More

Catfish Kitchen is our favorite place for catfish. It is always cooked to perfection with lots of delicious sides to go with it! There is not any other restaurant that we have ever been to that the staff is more friendly and attentive than here!

Loved the catfish, hush puppies are kinda sweet and bland to me. People are wonderful. I would love to eat there every day!!! Everyone has different tastes so you may like their hush puppies. Their white beans may be good but I like mine thickened. Fantastic place!!
