We stopped in for some fish on our way home from a short trip. I ordered walleye and my wife ordered catfish. We also each got one side. WE DIDNT EVEN FINISH HALF! Order one fish and two sides to share and that will be plenty for two. There is only one picnic table outside...no other seating. Most people take... More

It's good takeout food. They usually have fried catfish or walleye deep fried. They also sell locally caught fresh fish at a amazing price. No place to sit and eat. This is not a very safe area. So would be careful in night

Don't let the little wooden take out shack with the line standing in front of it scare you off. This is some of the best fish in Springfield. You will leave with a paper bag full of fish and fries.I think they are still only open in the later part of the week, and when they run out of fish... More

Saw Carter's shack and tried it at the urging of people waiting in line. Fish was fried almost greaseless with Cajun style spices. Sweet corn dumplings and fried okra right on the money. One order more than enough for two hearty eaters for about 10 bucks. Quite amazing. Went to a park to eat it.

THE best fried fish in Springfield. Fresh and seasoned to perfection, the catfish and walleye baskets are great. Enough fish for 3 sandwiches at a good price. Only problem is there is not a west side location. C-A-R-T-E-R-S!!!

I moved from the east coast and was spoiled on the freshness of fish and seafood in general. Since living in the midwest, I avoid it all together since most experiences are less than par. Someone gave me a catfish sandwich from Carters and I about died of happiness. I don't know what they do to their fish, but it's... More
