This is a fun place. Very small and homey which I REALLY liked. Nothing too fancy, My only issue is the pricing. The lunch special prices were more like dinner prices.

We stopped in for lunch right before they closed. We sat down at a wooden table with wooden seats. There was one other customer in the restaurant when we came in. I noticed a sign on the wall that said "Many have eaten here, Few have died". They don't serve alcohol so we had sodas. I ordered the small fried... More

Even though I have lived on the Westbank for about 1/2 of my (rather long) life, this was my first time to go to this Belle Chasse jewel. We had a group of about 18-20 that was running late after a tour of the flood system further down the highway and the wonderful manager agreed to stay open past the... More

We drove in to NOLA, arriving dinner time and sisters had gotten food take out from Adams Catfish House. Wow wonderful food, homemade tartar sauce, sweet potato fries, over the top. Crispy, well cooked filets of Catfish, $30 for two fish dinners...a little pricy though very good. did not see the restaurant or experience the service, only the food. Enjoy!

I have been going to Adam's for many years. The Catfish is always perfect. For lunch you can order 3, 4 or 5 pieces of Catfish with Hush Puppies and Fries. Don't forget to order a side of Cole Slaw. The waitstaff and owners always treat you like family. Give Adam's a try next time you're in Belle Chasse.

We have been going to adams years. It was just ok on this last visit. The food did not seen to be as flavorful as it once was. Overall the service is good, but there are better places to eat in belle chase especially for the price.

These guys have great catfish but they have other things that are good too. One of my favorites is their hamburger steak. The owner are real friendly & it make me want to stop in for lunch.
