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

Charming decor. Greeted w smiles and bowl of hot hushpuppies. Best hush puppies ever. Really great. Beans were ok but under seasoned. Cod fish, fried, was very well cooked and light batter. Pork chop also good. Reasonable prices. Will go back.

The servers are excellent, and friendly. The catfish was hot and fresh. The bowl of hush puppies were delicious. They offer 2 types of slaw, both were tasty. I highly recommend this restaurant.
