If you like catfish - this is the place for you. Even if you don't like fish, there are other things on the menu. When we were seated, the tables were sat up with beans, coleslaw and hushpuppies for us to enjoy while we decided what to order. The fish was good - but the hushpuppies were the best ever.

Have eaten here for 20+ years and never disappointed. Food starts arriving the minute you are seated. Ham n beans, coleslaw & hushpuppies are delivered to your table immediately with your fish or entrée coming shortly. Best to call ahead for reservations.

I know my catfish and this is the best in Western KY. So what that I had to wait to be seated for 25 minutes. The place was packed and for good reason. Service was simple and speedy. You get endless slaw (DELICIOUS), hushpuppies (served the purpose) and white beans ( I don't even care for them but these tasted... More

What a unique little place! We were told they have the best catfish in the area and they were right! Just seeing how busy this restaurant is tells you it must be good! We made a reservation ahead, were seated as soon as we arrived, and immediately had beans, cole slaw, and hush puppies on the table! Our order also... More

We arrived at 7:30 Friday evening. Many people had finished dinner and were leaving. We were told a 15 min wait. We were seated in less than 5 min. The waitress was there to take drink orders literally before I was comfortably seated. In less than a minute, we had the beans, hush puppies and slaw on our table. The... More

Never go to this place, the owners are rude and very unfair in seating , they will seat people who walk in that they know first, the food is not worth it, do not give this worthless place any of your money!

Terrific restaurant, great food, great service. You'll need to call ahead to make a reservation, and if you want baked fish you need to call ahead also. I've been there many times since and a lot of friends there and have never been disappointed.

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 served and were... 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.
