I moved away over 8 years ago and was so excited to come back for a visit so I can eat at one of my favorite places to eat only to be disappointed. Not like it use to be! Everything was average, the portions quite a bit smaller and they didn't serve fry bread like they use to or onion... More

Years and years ago when it first opened it was really good. As of the past 3-5 years we haven't found it worth eating there. We always see lots of cars there but we don't know why. The fish is usually over cooked and the hush puppies are usually overcooked. The beans are usually undercooked. Prices have gone up but... More

Reading reviews and past food critic reviews made us try this little roadside place. We had a totally different experience than described by everyone else. Fried pickles and cold beer were the only good part of the evening. Beans were undercooked, salad was pale & mediocre. Chicken is pre purchased mass produced product, catfish could possibly be the same. Hush... More

I have eaten here several times and have not been disappointed yet. The service is good, the fish is excellent, and I like the atmosphere. I have had better catfish but not often. The only drawback I have found is the tarter sauce, I just do not care for theirs. I highly recommend this place for great tasting catfish.

We had heard about the catfish at this place so decided to stop in one Saturday. Service was good. I had the three- piece fried catfish and my wife the four pieces of Cajun grilled catfish. My catfish was good. I have had better and have certainly had worse. My wife said her catfish was excellent. The beans were good;... More

I have driven past this restaurant for quite some time and thought it was a little honky tonk bar. Luckily, I slowed down and paid more attention a few weeks ago and found some of the best home cooking I've ever eaten. Their catfish is out of this world! Light, flakey, and tasty, loved by even those in my family... More

You'll miss it if you're not looking for it. There are no blinking signs out front to guide you and no fancy commercials on TV enticing you to take a drive to south Bixby, Oklahoma to check this wonderful little place out. The place is small, but the taste is huge. Some of the best catfish around. The fried dill... More

We go to The Lazy Fisherman whenever we get in the mood for catfish. It is a small restaurant south of town right as the road turns to the east towards Leonard. Rustic wooden building looks like it has seen better days. The food is really, really good. It has gotten to the place that my wife and I do... More
