Great catfish at a great price !

Living my catfish ! If u come during the lunch hr you will be lucky to find a seat. Typical sides, the main draw is the fish.

Ken's has good catfish and good sides, but the service is so very slow. I am not sure the wait is worth it.

I ordered the large catfish dinner that had 6pcs of catfish, and hush puppies. I ordered double brown beans for my sides. All was... More

First - the hours had changed - it is currently closing at 2 pm. Call before going to make sure it is open. And get there as early as you can. It gets packed, and the wait for the food is lengthy. It is well worth it, though. I had quit eating catfish because in recent years, so many times,... More

The Fried Catfish is the only thing I go for although they have other items on the menu. The catfish is freshly fried to perfection. The wait time is a little long but that is because the don't start frying your fish until you order it. The sides are good but the catfish is special. The only issue with Ken's... More

This is home cooked food, and the fish comes with all the trimmings. The burgers are just like mom would make at home. This establishment is owned and operated by family members and the service is great.

I love fish, but not catfish, unless it comes from here. I don't know what the secret is, but I have never had better fish anywhere. I love the fact that they have healthy choices for the sides as well. Broccoli Salad, Cole Slaw, Green Beans, Beets, Cabbage, etc., but also fries and hushpuppies as well. They also make one...

This is not a fancy place and it is not quiet, so don't go if you are trying to visit with friends. Go because you love catfish. It is not cooked until you order, so it is hot and fresh every time. Prices are reasonable. I try to go there about once a month.

My husband & I dropped in this down home catfish restaurant today around noon. We ordered at the counter while checking out the erase board with the Menu above the counter. Simple to read, not too big a menu but enough to contemplate on. it wasn't busy when we got there. We settled on the 3 pc. catfish dinner w... More
