Lake Bowen Fish Camp is a great little restaurant. Even if there is a line it typically doesn't take long. They have great catfish, shrimp, and even chicken fingers. My family particularly loves their Sunday buffet lunch with lots of southern style vegetables. They also have great hush puppies!!

This is our new favorite restaurant. The decor is light and colorful with wall and ceiling muruals painted on everything. The back of the restaurant has big windows to look out over Lake Bowen. The fish is to die for. Fried shrimp terrific, and comes with fries coleslaw and hush puppies served on school-like trays. Huge portion that a plate... More

This is a typical Southern Fish Camp with a view of the lake. Value for money is there for over fried frozen sea food. It does quite the business. Bring cash I don't think they take credit cards. They have a recipe for success. Place is always packed. Big portions and very cheap. It is fried fried and deep fried.... More

If you're looking for fresh, cheap food, this is your place! They cook it just right and they give you plenty! Of course, it's not gourmet or anything, but it's just plain good!

Decent fish for a decent price. Beware they do not accept debit or credit cards,and the other real downer about this place is the shrimp is not deveined. However the flounder and perch are good. My husband likes to get the whole flounder.Pretty good value.

Good old fashioned no frills fish-fry joint. Not the totally "healthy" dinner, but a great for an occasional treat .... although they do have salads and offer your fish broiled. The fish was lightly breaded and flavorful. The onion rings were great and fresh. The huge parking lot was jammed when we arrived about 6PM on a Saturday, but we... More

My husband and I took the kids tonight. We thought we'd go early and beat the crowd. Even at 4:20, it was already packed! Luckily there was no wait. One thing that I did not expect is that they do not accept credit or debit cards, so we did have to make a trip up to the corner store to... More

Pretty building to eat in and a great view but the food is just fried fish. It's a pretty local fish camp and that's all you can say about it.
