If it were only closer to home! Still, it's the first restaurant I consider when I need to satisfy that craving for tender, flaky, mouth-watering catfish. After my first visit, I returned the next day, and that wasn't the last time. It really is that good! Want to find out? I'm betting you'll enjoy it just as much as I... More

Selection is limited. Food temperature was good, but not very tasty. Don't bother ordering a side salad or baked potato. Served me white vinegar to put on my salad. Potato had a rotten end on it. But hey, fried okra was good. I wish we would have ate closer to home, this place is a train wreck. One waitress was... More

Huck's is the only place I order catfish even though I grew up in the south and my uncle had a catfish farm. It is always light and delicious. They have other main courses but why bother? The sides are great and varied so all can be pleased. No matter how busy there are smiles all around and service never... More

Just off Highway 75,this place serves up fresh catfish with a smile and plenty of delicious southern sides. The half order will fill. Hungry guy, and it comes with two sides. Hush puppies, fresh onions, and green tomato relish come along for free and along with the tartar sauce make for a tasty, filling, meal

I was in Denison for a reunion and Would Not leave until until I had some of Huck's Catfish!! My girlfriend and I always get it "burnt" (aka crispy) with fried squash and a baked potato.....the green tomato relish is yummy! The service was superb, even though it was really busy, everyone was super friendly!!

At least once a month we go to Huck's and order the fried catfish filet, extra crispy. It is mouthwatering delicious, and the huge order of homemade fries comes piping hot. If you have any room left, try the heavenly pecan cobbler. The place is always busy and somewhat noisy, but the food makes up for lack of sophisticated ambiance.

Place was packed...for lunch. Get there early. I had a wonderful catfish meal. The breading is fantastic. For those that don't like gamy tasting fish, don't worry. You'll think you're eating tilapia. Great experience, can't wait to go back.

Food is great! Prices are reasonable, portions are good. Owner comes table to table to make sure dining experience is good or he will personally take care of problem. I have never had a bad experience and that is hard to say about a restaurant.

This is one of my favorite places to take clients. They are always happy with their meals. I guess everyone can have a bad day, but I have yet to eat here and have a bad meal. This is, without a doubt, my favorite catfish in the world. The breading is light and cooked perfectly. You can also request extra... More
