My mother and I visited the Catfish King on 59N in Livingston today for lunch. Not only is the seating and atmosphere comfortable but spacious. Everyone there was so friendly and helpful and the food was scrumptious. We had salad, fried catfish, pinto beans, and cole slaw. I could not have done better. I am still impressed and making plans... More

Maybe I am out of touch with this type of restaurant but it is just a place of fried, greasy food. There are lots of families eating there.

Nothing to brag about. Fried catfish is decent. Salad and bean bar good. Not remarkable food. Livingston has better offerings

Ordered a steak, it was burned & dried out. The fish was supposed to be the specialty but even it wasn't good. We waited 20 minutes just to ask for a drink. Priced weren't bad but we've been once & never again.

Visited today with my Sister and Mother. We all thought the service and food were great for the price. The Shrimp and Oysters were good! The Salad Bar was fresh and good! Highly recommended!

Don't bother to go to this restaurant unless you like frozen food warmed up and called a restaurant. This is below run of the mill and long John silvers.

Ok, so yes, that is the name of the place. The others in my group found the fried catfish was really good and the salad bar has a good selection, but if your are looking for something besides fried catfish, don't go here.

The food was all excellent. The salad bar was fresh - everything was cold and crisp. There was plenty of room and it felt like family. The service was kind of slow, but in Livingston, nobody is in a hurry anyway! Gobs of delicious food! The fried catfish is excellent.

You will not be dissapointed with the food, price or service. Parking lot needs to be larger because it is so full. Friendly, efficient service.
