Great Experience

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.

Best farm raised catfish you can get. Great value for lunch. Comes with several sides. Very nice ambience with great views of the waterfront.

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

The best fried catfish in this area. The breading is not heavy, so you can enjoy the taste of the catfish. Cornbread comes with it...it arrives in an iron skillet that the server flips! The fried pickles are also delicious. Pickled onions, fries, and hush puppies also come with your meal. You can order fried chicken, but we always order... More

Very good food, sits right on the water. Not much of a menu, only fish, chicken and sides, but the fried fish is great. We go there all the time.

Cock of the Walk has a limited menu, but the food is very good. My husband and I usually get an order of fish and one of chicken and share. The Cole Slaw and corn bread are my favorite foods at the restaurant. Also, the iced tea....

First, let me preface this review by saying that this place sells farm raised catfish and no Vietnamese Swai. This place is a great representative of the Mississippi quinine. Everything from the ambience of the inside to the actual location located on the reservoir to the tossing of the cornbread you'll enjoy. This restaurant only sells two meats. Catfish and... More

Great view along the water and catfish was great! Try the pickled onions also, they are addictive but didn't care for the greens as much.

If you are looking for fancy seafood, don't go here. If you are looking for catfish done the way it is supposed to be done, don't miss this place. Catfish, hush puppies, collard greens, fried pickles, onion rings, and fresh cut French fries. Some of the best ever. I will definitely go back even if I have to drive out... More
