Went to Eddie's Catfish for lunch. Got there about 1 pm and the place was empty on a Wednesday. Both of us ordered shrimp and catfish. I was severely disappointed. The reviews I read had spoke very highly of this place. My food seemed to be overcooked and in dirty grease. French fries were the best thing I received but... More

Their catfish is the best I've ever had in my life. I have to say that I hardly ever eat there because when I eat fish, I like to enjoy to full meal deal. There sides are are average but I can't take the coleslaw. I have yet to find anyone that cares for it. I feel like I'm only... More

We do not reside in Midland but were passing through. On a Saturday afternoon we were looking for somewhere to eat. We decided on Eddie's after several others were closed. I do love good catfish! Well, we arrived and no one else was in the small dining area. We could not help but notice that we were treated very coldly.... More

My catfish dinner arrived at the counter in a brown lunch bag after a 20-min wait. I'll have to say it was with the wait, I just don't know if that's typical since I've only been once. HUGE piece of catfish. No way did I need to order the two piece meal. I just gorged on the delicious fish and... More

Hands down, Eddie's serves the best fried catfish I have ever had. The prices are low and the portions are large. Lunch hour is crazy so you may want to call and order ahead. It is owned by wonderful people who endeavor to better their neighborhood and who deserve the support of fellow Midlanders.

This place is the warm, satisfying goodness they mean when they say, down home cooking. The menu is short and they do it well. It is also a fun place to go because of the people who patronize it. Midland is a friendly place and this shows it. Reading the reviews I was prepared for a questionable neighborhood, but honestly... More

Stopped by and picked up an order to go, wow was I surprized when I got home and opened it up, the Catfish filets are so big, seasoned and cooked just right. Needless to say the wife and I were full by the time we had the Catfish, hand cut Fries not to mention the jalapeno hushpuppies. You need to... More

The seasonings in the breading really make the fresh catfish a hungry appetite's delight. The portions are large (we often get a meal withextra fillets and easily feed two or three). Limited seating might encourage carryout and I would definitely advise calling in your order.

Eddie's is definitely the best catfish I've ever had. Nice & crisp, great flavor, and very good value for the money. I love to eat there when I'm in Midland.
