Absolutely Incredible

I have been going to Huck's Catfish since I was a young child. I have never once been disappointed with the taste of the food or the helpfulness and kindness of the staff. I would recommend this restaurant to any and all passerby's of Denison; you will not regret stopping here!

Good place for a great meal. Was crowded when we went, weekend evening. I got chicken fried steak because I don't like fish. It was big with a thick piece of steak. My mom and grandmother got catfish and it was also big and very good. The sides were great, the potato salad is a bit different than I'm used... More

Busy place but was seated quickly. Our server, Margaret, was very helpful and knowledgeable. The food came out quickly and was fresh and very tasty. Our drinks were kept full. Would recommend and will return.

One of the best restaurants in Texas, in my opinion. Always try to go there when I'm in the Sherman/Denison area, and I take my 84 yrs. old aunt there because it is her favorite place. Can't get fried catfish or the vegetable sides like Huck's serves in very many places. Brings me back to my childhood living in Sherman... More

I have never been disappointed eating at Huck's! Generous helping, friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere. Wait staff keeps your tea glass filled and owner comes around to check on you. I highly recommend this fine establishment. We go here OFTEN!

Looking for some good catfish with down home cooked veggies? This is the place. You might have a little wait to get a table but the catfish will be hot and NOT greasy. Fish portions are large and vegetable selection is varied. Cole slaw is a must have. Ask for their homemade relish as an garnish. No appetizer needed as... More

There is no question this has to be the most popular restaurant in Denison and by the way without a GPS it may turn out to be a little difficult to locate and it is at the edge of town in an industrial complex. When we drove up we knew that the place might be full as the parking lot... More

The filets were cooked excellently and we're not greasy at all. The blackeyed peas were very tasty and the service was spot on.

The fried catfish is consistently good. I also love the grilled catfish. The hush puppies are amazing and the lemonade is fantastic. This place is locally owned and worth a special trip. It is delicious.
