Ordered the fried catfish platter and requested it to be extra crispy. When I finally got my food the batter was sticky and the fish was no where near extra crispy. It was probably some of the worst fried fish I have ever tried to eat. I've had better fried fish at a fast food restaurant. I went on a... More

This our 2nd time to visit since the new ownership. The 1st time I ordered fish and did complain that the taste and smell of the fish was so strong it turned my stomach. The owner did apologize. Tonight we went in to try it again because the restraint we were wanting to go visit was closed on Monday. Once... More

This restaurant used to be the best place to eat in town. It has changed owners twice in the last year and really gone down. I loved fried oysters and seemed to get sick every time I ate them. I finally asked about the process and was told they dip the shrimp and oysters in milk before dipping in batter.... More

Stopped by for dinner and had the catfish plate with fries and salad bar. The salad bar could have been fresher with a bit more variety. However, the catfish filets and french fries were really good. The service was just fine and this would be a place I would go back to. Nothing exceptional, but decent food at a reasonable... More

New owners. Great staff and new items on menu. Service is good, hours are inconvenient, should be longer opening hours.

Ok, so since I saw that this restaurant was under new ownership I decided to give it another try. I'm glad I did! I ordered the regular catfish plate which came with three large pieces of fried catfish. I got the loaded baked potato and it came with extra helpings of butter, sour cream and cheese. It also came with... More

Gador nuggets where very good! Frog legs needed something they seemed plain. Crawfish shrimp and crab were good. I would have liked more flavor but it was good over all.

Came to eat here after it had been closed for a while. Shrimp was actually good but catfish was not. Alarmed to see that all the tables had tartar sauce in squeeze bottles on the table. Maybe i am wrong but isn't it supposed to be refrigerated???? Will not be going back!!!!

I went here with my extended family and I must say the fried catfish was great! I had the crawfish etoufee and it was ok, but certainly not the best I've ever had. I'll probably stick with the catfish in the future. The small salad bar is a nice addition to tide you over while you wait for your food.... More
