Place is very plain, salad bar nothing to write home about. Oysters were good but just that. It was so plain that I have no desire to return but nothing was bad. Server was great but that was all that was memorable.

The food is good. Well stocked salad bar, and the fish was fried just right. Reasonable prices, large amount of food per plate. The employees we encountered were all very friendly and helpful. I will go back for sure.

While in Livingston for work I came to Catfish King with 4 co-workers. The service was phenomenal! We all had the Lunch specials: most had the catfish, I had the shrimp. The meal came with fries, hush puppies, and salad bar...PLENTY of food. And it was all good. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Party of 5 that was seated right away,... More

Fried catfish (the way you want it) and a Superb salad bar packed with fresh vegetables in a wide variety; hot beans for self service, several varieties of fruits on the salad bar as well.

Our experience started with a friendly greeting from the host and we were then promptly seated. Shortly after being seated and energetic and friendly waitress came by to take our order and answer any questions we may have. Between the four of us we ordered a; Catfish Lunch, Catfish Plate, Catfish and Oyster Plate and Shrimp Plate. All of which... More

Ordered the 4-catfish dinner that came with the salad bar, beans, fries & hushpuppies. Got 5 fillets, so there was that. But the waitress was obviously not interested in checking on customers...had to ask other staff for drink refill and more tartar sauce. Overall the fish is mild and prepared well, and the other items are solid. I've been to... More

One of the vendors at the Trade Days recommended this, so we gave it a try. It appears the look the owner(s) are going for is old country barn. It was somewhat crowded when we went, but we didn't wait long for a seat. Looking around, almost everyone seemed to be having the catfish fillets and fries. Dawn, our waitress,... More
