Great place for Catfish or burgers

Irby's is located on the Lake in Granbury. They have great onion rings, really good burgers and mine wife says the best catfish in the Granbury area! Everything else is good although not homemade, such as crinkle cut fries instead of hand cut, but it is a good "hole in the wall" place to go when... read more

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

After I moved to the Granbury area almost 20 years ago, I asked a few people where I could get good fried catfish. They steered me in the right direction when they all said Irby's. When I ate there recently, it was as good as ever. Nothing has changed, which is fine with me. Their catfish is coated with cornmeal... More

I would venture to say, the food here is very good. Greasy and messy. The catfish was down right tasty and the chili burgers are just as good. The food is very reasonable priced. The service is one to be desired, depends on who is at the counter, you get the rude or the sassy. You decide.

Love the old fashioned cornmeal breaded catfish here. I've probably eaten here 10 times and have found the catfish consistently good. Service is small town friendly and efficient. The ambiance is small town cast-off fast food restaurant furniture, but it's comfortable and there is a nice small lake view in non-drought times. The only other thing I've had besides catfish...

Located just as you come into downtown is a small non-descript restaurant known as Irby's. We had heard about the place from locals and decided to stop. It is nothing fancy, however we like these kinds of places. The hamburgers were very good. Sure was a treat off the beaten path of fast food hamburger places.

Always eat at Irby's, especially when we have company. Great catfish, burgers, everything. Can get to it by boat. Sit inside our outside. Don't miss it!

Typically, there are multiple cars parked in the lot at this business; indicating that the food must be pretty good. On a recent Sunday, we purchased 4 fried catfish platters including okra, cole slaw and pinto beans. I must tell you that both Stumpy's and Hoffbrau serve better food than Irby's. I really wanted this to be good, or even... More

I don't know where all of these people that are writing these reviews are eating but it ain't Irby's. This place is horrible. Dirty dishes and silverware were the first turn off. The smell was the second, and the last straw was the catfish I was served was only half cooked. So many people including my own mother have bragged... More
