We only had time for one restaurant meal while in Memphis, and this one was convenient to where we were. It is a great choice, food-in-a-basket type of place. The prices are a little high for catfish, in my opinion. I had an oyster po=boy which was a good sandwich, but the oysters were tiny, making the finished product about... More

Blackened catfish salad was delicious. Loaded and so fresh. Had a basket of hushpuppies and fried dill pickles too- yummy! fast, friendly service. Cooper Young area could use more shops to complement all the restaurants in the area.

Can't go to Memphis and not have catfish. Husband had blackened catfish and couldn't stop raving. Loved the fried shrimp, hush puppies and Cajun cabbage. Friendly service, great food.

Just love the food, service and atmosphere at this place. The food is just wonderful. Fried catfish is my favorite. The grilled catfish tacos are not far behind. Zucchini as a side is a really good healthy option.

The cafe was comfortable and family style. The catfish was light, airy and crunchy but the headliner is the homestyle hushpuppies and tartar sauce that stole the show

Altho I usually get take out, sometimes I eat in. They always accommodate menu requests: cabbage without meat, and oysters without the poboy bread! Lemon pie is made in house and yummy.love the place

We loved the flavor of the fried catfish. It was seasoned with just enough spice. The hush puppies were delicious! They are a must have. We didn't save any room for dessert. But, they have a huge selection. I would definitely go back.

Soul Fish Cafe delivers simple, delectable food. The service is fast and courteous. The open space offers booth seating, tables and stools at a custom-made bar that features fishing lures cast in resin. We chose a booth, where we were quite comfortable. The food fits the name: Soul Fish offers a wide range of southern soul food. Menu available online.... More
