Catfish without the hassle

Fish Daddy's has become one of our favorites when meeting friends or just dining alone. They always have something everybody enjoys and it is always prepared just right. Since moving to this area I have had a hard time finding good fried catfish. There's is excellent. We have a friend that... read more

The prices here are remarkable for the food you get. The food is not terrible and not great, but it's consistent. You know what to expect. My favorite thing is the $1 hush puppies. :) I had a Signature Salad on my most recent visit that was not nearly as good as a similar one I can get at Wendy's.... More

Just had the worst restaurant experience I've ever had in my entire life! The manager on duty, Lacy, treated us horribly and told us to never come back because THEY messed up our drink order multiple times. She insisted that I ordered something I did not because "that's what the bartender told me". When I explained it all again, she... More

We always eat here when we come to College Station. Wonderful atmosphere, great staff, good selection on the kids menu. The fish is always cooked just perfect any way you order it. The lunch menu prices are very reasonable.

We had lunch here and it was the first and last time. Chips and queso with beef is really good but 1/2 rack of bbq ribs were dry and french fries were old, not even warm. The place has a lot of potential, it's beautiful and service could be much better. We have our food fast and refills were done... More

The place was full of energy and we had a good dinner. Nice fish choices. Great for a family and they had a nice large bar area for those that want to eat far away from the kids.

My wife and I celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary here on June 3, 2015. We have dined there for as long as they've been established. We joke and say that we don't like the name of the place because it reminds us of catfish and hushpuppies. But, this place has a wide selection of delicious sea food, always prepared to... More

The food is fresh and delicious , the prices are reasonable & the service is above par! If you go to other national chains, you are paying for a salad & biscuits which is included in every meal price even if you don't want those items, but here the meal is cheaper but for a small price you can add...

In College Station to visit President Bush's Library and stopped at Fish Daddy's for dinner. It was more upscale than we expected. Very contemporary furnishings. Not too loud. Mostly couples with some family groups. We had the stuffed shrimp and the tilapia. Both were less than $12 each and were prepared nicely. The server was very nice and efficient. We... More
