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!!

We have known the owners of this restaurant for years. It is always consistently good food. The atmosphere is unique. I recommend reservations if you have more than 4 people. Seating is limited but it's worth the wait. Then you can go outside and feed the catfish in the ponds!!!! Children love that. I recommend this experience as a positive... More

Food was simple, fresh, and delicious. There are two options: chicken or catfish (of course). We tried both and we were not disappointed. We called ahead and were seated right away. The staff was friendly and courteous. Our favorite place we tried in KY.

Should definately be a stop when you come to the Moors. This is farm raised catfish right there at the restaurant. Staff is accomodating and friendly.

I have always enjoyed coming to Catfish Kitchen. The staff is so friendly and the food is very tasty. I love the hushpuppies. I could eat my weight in them. But I must say if you go on the weekend (that is the only time I have ever been) get there as they open or call and reserve a table.... More
