Traveling to South Carolina, I stopped in Calvert City for the night and Willow Pond was recommended by the hotel desk clerk. Wow, am I ever glad is was. Willow Pond had absolutely the best catfish that I've ever tried. ... and the prices were very reasonable. I'm sure the "locals" are already aware of this gem but it's one... More

What a pleasant surprise to find such great food in walking distance from our hotel! The catfish is so fresh and cooked to perfection. All the side start went with the meal were just as yummy! My only regret is, I was to full for dessert... If you are ever close by... This is a must!

Recommended by the staff at the Super 8, and it was a good choice. A very good seafood restaurant with hushpuppies to die for. Their grilled shrimp was excellent as well as the slaw with vinegar (also comes with creamy mayonnaise). Like another reviewer the air conditioner didn't work very good so it was a bit stuffy, but the food... More

Visited Willow Pond for supper. They were really busy but we were promptly seated and served. Everything was delicious. We had catfish, beans, hushpuppies, slaw and baked potatoes. The hushpuppies are so good! The only problem we encountered was the air conditioner wasn't working well. It was stuffy and a bit uncomfortable. We will make sure the air is working... More

If you want some of the best hushpuppies you want to head to Willow Pond. They set a fresh cooked bowl of them on the table after you sit down. They are small, on the sweet side and just really good. We really enjoy their catfish. They have a small menu but we have been pleased with whatever we have... More

We occasionally eat there, but we usually order carry out. The fish is always great, along with al the fixins. Pretty reasonably priced too!

This was the best catfish we have had in Kentucky. The service was great and the food was outstanding. I would recommend this place to anyone.

This is not a lunch restaurant as they don’t open until late in the day. The fried catfish are our favorite and we have stuck to that single entree for many years. There are two very good catfish restaurants in this area and this is one of them. The hush puppies my spouse swears are the very best. Service is... More
