Great for a quick bite to eat

We needed something close to our hotel, so on the recommendation of the staff we walked over to the Willow Pond. Hush puppies and vinegar slaw were very good, the Catfish, house speciality, was also very good. We went close to closing so our baked potato was over cooked. Great service.

If you want catfish done right this is the place to go. They do the sides right too. The hush puppies are the best ever. We always bring out of town friends here.

We recently visited Willow Pond quite by accident. We stopped off the interstate to grab a quick bite and this restaurant caught my husband's eye. The kids were a little leery since the outside isn't "fancy". But the food was excellent. They have the BEST hushpuppies! We all ordered different varieties of seafood and it was all excellent. Service was... More

I had the t-bone as I was in the mood for a steak. It was tough and underdone. My husband had the blackened cod, tilapia and catfish. They were all good, but the tilapia was excellent. The hush puppies and white beans were great. Our server was fabulous. Atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired, fairly noisy and vinyl tablecloths,... More

Service was just ok, food wasn't all that great. High priced for the food quality and quantity. Looked clean though.

I went here as there was not much else around the area. It was packed and i was alone. I ended up at a 4 top with only one chair. Seemed odd but it was fine. The food was country for sure. Everything came with hush puppys, white beans, and cole slaw with your choice of dressing; mayo or vinegar.... More

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
