You need to stop here for catfish, oysters or any other fish. The fish can be fried or grilled, and you have your choice of what type of breading you want. The prices are outstanding and it is like a deli where you place your order and then pick it up, so it is even more reasonable. They serve drinks,... More

I had friends coming to town who eat only fish. I looked up online and gave them this restaurant. I was meeting them for dinner and they said let's go back since we have been there the past 2 nights. Food was great. I had fried catfish and shrimp. It was very tasty and so were the hush puppies. The... More

I think we stopped in here at least 3 times to share fish tacos with our friends. Had the grilled tilapia. So so good. And the frozen margarita was fantastic! We also tried the mud bugs (crawfish) for the first time. Not my favorite...good I guess as far as mudbugs go I guess, but loved the seasoning they put on... More

This is a great place for lunch. Very popular. The catfish is delicious. Its self service but worth the effort. Best value in Memphis.

Catfish was very good and menu inexpensive. Many seafood choices will please all including kids. If you want regional food and a fun fishing atmosphere this is a good choice. It's an order at the counter but large restaurant.

I ordered grilled catfish by accident but I am so happy I did. It was very fresh and tasty. My only regret is that I only had one meal there. So many other dishes looked so amazing. My wife had a great shrimp kabob. If I get back to Memphis I will be back for more. The location is perfect... More

Cat fish tacos are the best! Get the beans and rice as a side, as well as some fried okra. Great bottled beer selection and margaritas. The kids meals are service in cute little cardboard boats. We choose to eat here a lot when we are downtown.
