Perfect catfish, wonderful sides

If you ike catfish, you need to make a stop here- hot, fresh and tasty. The hush puppies were sweet and my husband ate a bunch and he doesn't normally eat hush puppies. I'm not a fan of creamy coleslaw but this was just sweet enough with a hint of tangy too. Beans (great northern) were also... read more

I have never had a bad meal here. The food and service are outstanding. On Friday and Saturday plan around peak times to avoid a wait.

They are always friendly, clean, fast, fair priced, and have plenty of good food to eat. I always order the 2 piece and if I have an urge for more just ask the waitress to up your order to a 3 piece or even all you can eat. They are totally ok with it and then here comes more fresh... More

I have been eating here for 20 years, it is a must have every time I visit the area. We usually make reservations a day ahead, and are NEVER disappointed!

Well, just left from eating here and I really don't know what the big fuss is. Granted, I am not a catfish person, but there is little else for those of us that don't eat catfish. I had the fried clams, and they were just OK. Definitely not great. If you want your fish baked, you have to call in... More

Food is ok. Catfish is ok, nothing spectacular. Atmosphere is cramped and nerve wreckingly noisy. Definitely NOT a relaxing dining experience. View of pond is nice but the noise and cramped quarters are overwhelming.

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!
