Just got back from eating at this place after taking in a movie. We visited the location in the shops of Forrest Hill Irene. Our service was excellent, the catfish was lightly breaded , crunchy and delicious. The sides, mac and cheese, collard greens and hush puppies were just wonderful. I think the decor fits the spirit of the place.... More

Great fish and small selection of other soul food items like greens, fried okra, hush puppies etc. Very eclectic beer selection. Small but cozy, and within walking distance of the cooper-young district. Friendly staff and decent prices,

The food was very good. This is a very small non formal restaurant where you go for the food not the decor. I had the salmon cesar salad and it was amazing. I paired with a draft beer, I was in heaven. Great price as well, I would return.

For this to be a Southern Catfish restaurant they sure don't serve up that Southern hospitality. The fish is good. Th food is good. The tartar sauce was good. They served me what looks to be two day old fries and did not want to make the situation right. The fries were clearly cooked way too long. They were hard!... More

Fresh fish served any way you like it-grilled, baked or fried. Big beer selection to choose from and the expansive space. Casual dining nestled in shopping center parking lot.

I love visiting Memphis so many food options! I ordered the catfish bites and black eyed peas. My Neice ordered the tacos. My catfish bites went so fast I didn't get a picture! The fish was lightly breaded which is a plus! The place is open and airy! The staff was nice and food comes out fast! I did get... More

A friend wanted to go to the one on Poplar, I was reluctant but she raved about so I decided to give it another try.

Great value, Great food,and a Free Souvenir!! I had the Memphis Sandwich, "sliced pork with BBQ sauce and Coleslaw" and fries and drink for less than 8 bucks. You get to keep the plastic cup your drink come with and it's a pretty cool cup
