As being new to the area we were told about this restaurant. As an avid reader I checked up and things looked good. We expected great catfish and looked forward to the green tomato relish. Not impressed and felt rushed by the young server who was flirting with a table in her little shorties. The relish tasted like it came... More

Sorry we didn't show you a great meal when you came in recently. That's all we want to do! I wish you'd let us know about your catfish while you were here -- we'd never want you to eat something that wasn't right. Hopefully we'll get a chance to show you that this was an off day and "Katfish" is... More

We tried the chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes, cream gravy, fried okra & biscuits. Food is served in a homey dining room. People are friendly & service is very good.

So a re-review. Horrible sums it up. Cold food. Slow service. Wrong order. Arguing waitress when she messed up the order and I mean argue. What do you want me to do about it attitude.

After over 20 years in the food service industry, I always held the opinion that the customer was always right. However, that was not the case in this situation. This was a classic case of the customer taking a resolvable problem and turning into a major incident. I concede that this gentleman's order was wrong. When we tried to resolve... More

This is not a place you expect to be wowed by the food, but don't let the outside fool you. The food is good, not as good as my last visit 3 years ago, but still good. Service was great and the pecan cobbler is an absolute must try if you are in the area!!

As for the food, you said it was good, but not as good as the last time you were here -- I wish I had more details about that. Feel free to reach out next time if... More

The catfish was great. They serve you 3 large pieces along with the choice of sides. They are cooked perfectly. Saw some others had the ribs and they looked fantastic. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Conroe.

Really appreciate the 5-star recommendation here on TripAdvisor! Couldn't be happier to hear how much you enjoyed our catfish. Think you'll give the ribs a try next time or stick with catfish? Either way, we're looking forward to having you back soon. Best, Buster, General Manager More
