Best fried pickles and catfish!

Forget about your diet! This is the place to eat fried everything and anything. I was introduced to fried pickles here and it was love at first bite. It is a basic recipe - take a jar of sliced hamburger pickles, dip them in milk/eggs (just guessing here), coat them with a flour/cornmeal/spice... read more

The food is very good; especially the cole slaw. You get four small pieces of fish or chicken with your order. Portions are smaller than they used to be. Service is always slow.

This place has been around forever and it is a good concept. Their catfish is good and everyone will leave satisfied. Do not order a "Keelboat Special" for each person unless you and your group are used to overeating. Two reasonable people can split a keelboat. I say that becaseu their prices are high for cafe catfish. One Keelboat Special... More

Love it! The food is excellent. Make sure you get the turnip greens. Best I've had since grandma. Pickled onions go really well with the slaw and fish. It's fun for the family to watch the waiters flip the cornbread.

Fun place for families. Great catfish. Cornbread is awesome! A bit of a wait, but it was worth the wait.

Nobody does catfish better-- perfect battering, cooked golden brown. Throw in cornbread, coleslaw, turnip greens and fried pickles-- simply awesome. Only complaint I have is that the tin cups they use for drinks are small-- but that is part of the ambience-- this is a great place with a great water view-- enjoy!

Excellent food, service, and view of the water. I usually try to stop by and have a meal. The prices are comparable to other restaurants I have been too. I took my wife there this past weekend for her second time in her life.

This is a storied restaurant in the Jackson Area. If you like catfish, then this is the place to go - it is basically an "all you can eat" catfish place. There is literally only two items on the menu -Fried Catfish and Fried Chicken Tenders. They have cornbread and some veggies (like collard greens and fried pickles). And, you... More
