Fun Place!

We ate here for dinner. The staff is very friendly, and the atmosphere is great. The food was good. We got the grilled fish, which was a little dry for our taste; next time we'd get it fried. We also got grilled veggies and red beans and rice. I loved the fish plaques on the wall.

We enjoyed the good fish and sides. I also got a shrimp cocktail, but it was just okay. They have an extensive menu too. If you are expecting something fancy, it's not, but if you want good fish in a quirky place, this os the place to go.

$19.64 for 2 dinners and an ice tea. The catfish is wonderful! The hush-puppies are very good. There are many options on the menu. I have been here many times, and it is always good.

Took the family to eat before a Grizzlies game. We are from Memphis but had never tried it. Awesome dinner, reasonably priced, definitely will visit again!

Very friendly staff. Grilled catfish and tilapia tacos were amazing. I love fish tacos and there were among the best I have had. Went on a week night and it wasn't crowded. Quick service. Lots of fun things to look at on the walls.

Horrible service, we had to clean off our own table!!! We have never been there so I expected someone to let us know what to do. We had to just keep going and checking to see if our food was ready.

I was surprised to see this restaurant in Memphis as I thought it was more local to the Fort Worth/Dallas area. I'm a regular at the one near my office and felt at home here. The hush puppies alone are worth the stop.
