Great little catfish restaurant.Fast and friendly service.Small lake with geese to view from the window tables.The fish is yummy.Call ahead if you want the baked fish.They also have great chicken.My grand kids love it.If you have extra hush puppies left you can go out to the gazebo and feed the fish and geese.

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

I can't say enough good things about this place. Food is incredible and priced fair unlike many other now famous catfish joints. My kids had chicken and claim is was some of the best they have had. Service is great. Even if you don't like catfish you will love this place! Take any scraps that you don't eat from the... More

We had heard a lot of good things about this restaurant and now we know they are all true. Catfish Kitchen is not a big restaurant, so we made a reservation. They seated us quickly and took our order. While we waited for our meals we munched on hushpuppies, dried beans, and cole slaw. There aren't a lot of choices... More

If you are planning to visit the Kentucky Lake area & love catfish like I do, have dinner one night at the Catfish Kitchen. If dining there on a weekend, I would recommend making a reservation – We were not aware that they took reservations & were told our wait was 30 minutes (apparently they were telling everyone that:) We...

We've been eating here for years and love it. The food is all good. We like the hush puppies and the home made beans are super.
