Fried Catfish? Not Impressed

I went here wanting to eat what the locals ate. I ordered catfish as the name of the business would identify their specialty. Before the food came, I went around the salad bar and was disappointed. The different salad items and foods were cross contaminated with items from other bowls. The dressing... read more

I visited this establishment my first week here at fort Polk wanting to have a tatse of Louisiana and was treated as though they were doing me a favor by even taking my order as I ordered my food to go, the cashier did not know how the menu items were served and made no attempt at asking management if...

Everything tasted like Deep fried Grease. I had a mixture plate of fish, hush puppies, crawdads, and everything tasted exactly the same, not to mention my stomach ache that night. Not sure why it is so busy there all the time. I guess, different strokes for different folk. I prefer not to have a stroke, if I eat there again.... More

I will pass on this place. Nothing here that I care for. I would not recommend this restaurant. I don't like the food or service.

If you don't mind waiting over an hour for your order, being charged for food that you never received, being over charged for the food that you finally do receive (which wasn't anything to write home about), and extra charges added to your bill...then this is the restaurant for you. Catfish Junction used to be one of our favorite places... More

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
