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

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
