It's all about the catfish

Order at the counter, they'll bring it to your table. The catfish is quite good; service is friendly. We like the green tomato relish. HOWEVER, if you want REALLY good catfish, drive on into Grove to Your Place Restaurant for delicious hot catfish (cornmeal battered and perfectly fried), fried... read more

It's a crappy fast food restaurant. Need I say more? Nasty fried, fried, and fried. I actually would have preferred mcdonalds

This is really a mixed review of Catfish John’s Restaurant. We stopped in here when we saw the signs advertising catfish dinners for $5.95. The place looked attractive and there were several cars parked in the lot so we figured this must be a good place to dine. When we got inside, we noticed there was a counter where you... More

Very basic décor - if you're looking for a dining experience skip this place/ catfish was good but sides were just ok.

HOWEVER, if you want REALLY good catfish, drive on into Grove to Your Place Restaurant for delicious hot catfish (cornmeal battered and perfectly fried), fried okra, yummy cole slaw.

We tried a variety of things. The catfish was OK, but nothing exciting. The hamburger came from a frozen patty . The fried sides appear to be Sysco-like. With all the other attractions in Grove, I doubt I'll be back.

My husband and I both had the 3 catfish dinner which included a tomato relish, hushpuppies, cole slaw and choice of fries or baked potato. The catfish was very good with a nice cornmeal coating. We would definitely eat there again!

The food was okay for the price. We were told of this place by some other tourists who raved about it. The place is very down to earth and the employees were nice and attentive. The prices were pretty good for the amount of food that was given. It closes fairly early (9 p.m.) though. It is not an upscale... More
