A Hidden Gem

This is an amazing hidden gem that was recommended to me by a good friend. The catfish is one of the best that I have sampled on my travels. The staff are interesting, as is the interior.

This restaurant serves great catfish along with fantastic sides including fresh homemade onion rings, sweet potato fries, & fried pickles. The menu of catfish allows choice between traditional fried, Cajun style, or baked. All are good, portions generous, & prices fair for quality. My favorite dish is the "Papa Platter," all you can eat order! It is shameful for me... More

The food is hit and miss. Mostly miss. Sometimes the catfish is not catfish at all but something called "swai". The hostess will leave you sitting around for an hour with empty tables because they would rather you were bored in the waiting area than in the restaurant.

Food average and greasy. Not sure what the hype was about. Service fair. Waiting area inside as hot as it was outside only shaded.

Seating is crowded little tables. Fried catfish was loaded with grease, paid for this later. Food was slow in coming and could have been hotter. Server was just ok.

We were traveling from Missouri to San Antonio and needed to stop for the night. We asked for a non-chain restaurant in the area. The Catfish Plantation was recommended. The menu starts with the story of this historic home and the hauntings. We were more interested in the food. The wine was generous. The catfish can be fried two different... More

My husband and I enjoyed visiting this unique restaurant, which is located just around the corner from the Chaska House Bed and Breakfast. I loved this restaurant. Everything from the historic old home it was housed in, to the 1940s music they played (a refreshing change from the music you ordinarily hear in restaurants), to the food was outstanding. Such...

Catfish is king here. Waitress was really fun. Blackened catfish was the best but only by a little over the fried catfish.

With a name like Catfish Plantation what else would one have for dinner? I recommend the whole fish. They are a little smaller and a cooked evenly

While this is a haunted restaurant, what keeps me coming back is the food. The farm raised catfish is amazing you can get it cajun or cornmeal battered, the chicken fried steak is amazing, the fried pickles are to die for. the desserts awesome. The portions are huge.
