What it says it is

Hey is you remember old catfish fries and just like some nice fried fish. This place is great. It's not fancy. But it's good.

The Comfort Inn recommend Lufti's, along with Trip Advisor recommendations. Being almost empty at 6:30 pm was our first tip. Then, out of shrimp and with three of the six fountain dispenser with empty signs. We chose blackened catfish (no lemon available); macaroni and cheese..the food was edible, not not even good. Avoid this place.

My two boys and I really enjoyed the catfish, this is kinda a little hole in the wall nothing fancy but the food and the service make up for their shortcomings in decor. We will definitely return.

Friend suggested this place. I had 1/2 l b of blackened catfish, red beans/rice and greens/cabbage. Excellent! Lady at register who took my order was super friendly, very helpful. Great food for the money. I'll be back and will tell friends.

The parking was not marked, so we thought we were actually parking at an apartment complex. I was afraid to park for fear I may be towed. Once inside, the decor was tired and rundown and ther wasn't much of a selection on the menu.

have eaten at the 38 Main (spacious) and Raytown locations. both have great service...the comeback sandwich is properly named, because it makes you come back again and again...servedon ciabatta bread (a big plus!) with lettuce,onions , tomatoes, tarter sauce on the side-with a choice of one side (many to choose from) ...the sunshine cake is YUMMY especially if you love...

You can't catch better catfish! Fried to crispy perfection wih not a hint of grease and Tasty spiced crust. Have the green bean side. My "mama" didn't make beans like this. Great fresh slaw. No atmosphere but clean and friendly service. New address at 59 Prospect.
