Great Fried Catfish

Building is not much to look at, inside or out but the place is clean The small staff works hard and the food is good. Especially the Fried Catfish plate. That's what we go there for, although we have had the hamburgers and a couple of other things. Place your order when you walk in and they bring... read more

After I moved to Granbury years ago, when I asked people where to get good catfish, they would all say Irby's. And they were right. Just like any other place, sometimes it varies a little when you get some catfish that tastes a little muddy, or when it turns out greasy for that particular visit. But all in all, it's... More

We had grandchildren visiting and wanted something quick and easy. We were so surprised when we had the catfish and it was cooked perfectly! Our group had a variety of things, grilled chicken, hamburgers, hotdogs, and grilled cheese. Everyone was happy with their food, so I would say it was a great experience. BUT, for great catfish, this is the... More

This small restaurant has great fried catfish and cold slaw. The fried shrimp is good too. We enjoyed looking out the window and watching the ducks on the water. When you walk in, it is not very friendly and you may not like what you see either. Someone had told us the food was good so we stayed.

I had a hard time finding this place...it's not on the 377 or downtown...but it's worth looking for..it is on the lake. The catfish and hush puppies are wonderful...but the fried okra is amazing (and I don't even LIKE okra!). The service is friendly...but if you are looking for atmosphere ...go somewhere else. This is somewhere you go for the... More

We had a catfish dinner and a catfish sandwich. Fish was very tasy. Fries were good too. They don't skimp on the sides, at least not the fried okra. Prices very reasonable. Doesn't look like much, but the food is tasty and priced right. Small dining room as a window looking at small piece of the lake. Will be back... More

I have my mother visiting for a couple of weeks and she wanted a "good ol' hamburger." I loaded MiMi into the car and headed to Irby's. MiMi is 95 years young and a very picky eater, so feeding her something she thinks is "fit to eat" is quite the challenge. Much to my surprise, MiMi ordered a hamburger, cut... More

Sometimes the hole in the wall with limited seating is the best place to eat. This is one of those kinds of places! Well rounded menu - Burgers, catfish, and chicken strips are at the top of my list!

We go to Irby's on a regular basis. This is truly a hole in the wall place but with recent updates to interior carpet and walls. We love the shrimp and catfish combo. So delicious.

We'd heard about the catfish. It lived up to the hype. The sides were awesome, too! We had pinto beans, cole slaw, and fried okra - all excellent. And those hushpuppies! Wow. We like it so well we went back the next day for the cheeseburger special. We split one ... they brought it out, not only cut in two,... More
