“great fried food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This place is heaven if you love fried food. The fried shrimp and sweet potato fries were delicious, the prices reasonable and the service excellent. I love the onion rings, too.

“Cherry Creek Catfish is a Winner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We hadn't eaten here in years but I'm glad we tried it again. The Blackened Catfish with Creole Spices was super good. Even though it was Sunday lunch crowd, we got excellent service.

“Great Chicken Fried Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We stopped into Cherry Creek Catfish Co., based on local reviews for the best chicken fried steak in Austin. We started with their fried green tomatoes which were disappointing. The batter did not stick to the tomatoes and they didn't have much flavor. The chicken fried steak was much better with a crispy batter and excellent gravy. I would suggest a side of the corn nuggets which were sweet and flavorful. A nice, friendly restaurant with good service and an excellent value! We will return next time we are in Austin.

“Great hole in the wall!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

I am going to be honest, this place is a little outdated.. the decor makes you feel a little out of place BUT the catfish was AMAZING! Definitely coming back :)

“Excellent catfish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Love this restaurant! It is very homey, way casual, and really friendly staff work here. Very convenient access, parking, and I have dinner there at least 2X a month. The menu is all about catfish, of course, but there are a variety of dishes such as chicken, fish tacos, salads, ribs and burgers. I come mostly for the catfish, and their's is the best.

ALWAYS fresh, crispy, sizzling hot and so tasty from the perfectly seasoned cornmeal. It is no surprise that the 'Chicken Fingers' are also out of this world. The fried dishes are very consistent, not greasy and flavors do not 'overlap'. The sides are all good. The 3-pc Catfish Dinner may be called 'small' but it is plenty with 3 jumbo pieces and 2 sides. Be sure to try the 'Fried Green Tomatos' appetizer.

Really excellent catfish.
