I went here with my parents for a late dinner (they were closing soon), and it was so good!! It was my first time at the Catfish House, which I have lived in Modesto almost my whole life, so I am not sure why I waited so long.
The decor was awesome, think True Blood's Merlot's, that is the kind of feeling I got. Things were simple, rustic, wood and metal, laid back and casual.
The servers were great, fast on the refills, good with the memory, and constantly moving. Even though they were cleaning up for closing, they never stopped serving us, we always felt like we were taken care of.
The food was so delicious! I had the shrimp, which was amazing. I did try the blackened catfish, and that too was soooo good! While you are waiting you get fries, hushpuppies and coleslaw (which is not all liquidy, it was amazing!!) you get a side of beans and rice with your meal, so much food, I could not even finish mine.
The food is not healthy by any means, but if what you are wanting is good down home cooking, in a casual atmosphere, this is the place for you!! It is not real cheap, so make sure you go knowing you are gonna spend a little money (but so worth it)!!
