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.

Ok. I was travelling and looking for a place to eat dinner. Read the reviews of what is available in Livingston and nothing really turned me on. There is an italian restaurant that I would have tried but I had italian for lunch. So I decided to try Catfish King. It was better than I expected. First of all, it... More

The food was good, the waitress acted like we were old and special friends, and the price was reasonable. And, I forgot to get an itemized receipt for my expense account and called back 3 weeks after our visit. Erica couldnt get the original but asked what I had and put together a duplicate and faxed it to me. Exceeded... More
