Best Catfish Dinner!

Whether you like them whole or thin and crispy fillets, this is by far my favorite catfish restaurant! The hush puppies are awesome, and I can eat my weight in the creamy cole slaw! I'll see you there on Friday! Did I mention the incredible onion rings.

I enjoyed my first experience at Jerry's from start to finish! Courteous staff and great food. Our waitress was very good too. Good food and service is hard to find. Look no further! This is IT!

We have driven by dozens of times. Always busy. $14 per person. Were rushed to place order. Flagged server down for condiment; never saw her again. Charge for a glass of water but we could not get a refill. Curiosity satisfied. Fish good rest bland and fries undercooked. Wont stop again.

Let me start this review by saying I'm not an huge catfish fan, overall, but this restaurant is outstanding. It's one of my proudest restaurant finds while traveling. Outstanding food, service and atmosphere. Kind of like a roadside attraction for it's building alone, the food dose not dissapoint. I have already recommended this to personal friends who may be traveling... More

Jerry's is one of the oldest fish houses in Florence. Good people, good food but prices are way too high. Also there is always a very long wait to get in to be seated. If I am going to eat fis, I will go to Moss Creek in Pearl.

This is the very best catfish, coleslaw, hush puppies, and fries around. We take out of town eyes here often, and when they return to Jackson, they always want to go back. The service is great, the food always meets expectations. This is also the best coleslaw.
