“Hot and thirsty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2011 via mobile

Over priced fish and chicken and that's it!! The give you a small tin cup of drink which keeps drink cold but is far from enough, our waitress got an attitude when we asked for more to drink!! It would have been cooler sitting outside!! If this is the top rated in this area they must be starving.

“Best coleslaw & cornbread! Beautiful views of the reservoir!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011

This place is great to go with your spouse, friends, or family. It has ample seating which is great for large gatherings. They bring out delicious coleslaw, onions, & cornbread with your meal. They bring the cornbread out in a little skillet and flip it in the air for your entertainment before serving it to you (it's more exciting than it sounds). :) I've had everything on their menu. This location only has two options, chicken strips or catfish and each meal runs you about $12. Most people come here for the catfish. The chicken strips are ok though. Both meals are served with fries and a couple of hushpuppies. I always get a "pot-o-greens" which is around $2.95 for the smaller pot and $3.75 for the larger pot. Their onion rings are good and fried pickles are great for starters. You can also get a mixed plate of rings and fried pickles. The sweet tea is SWEET and very, very good! I love the rustic plates and cups they use. Your silverware and plenty of napkins are in a container on the table for ease. I've been to this location several times over the years and the food and service have been superb each visit. A few neat items to look at in the waiting area along with a huge map of what Jackson looked like many, many years ago (I believe around the 50's). The bathrooms are rustic and worth checking out, sort of an outhouse style but within the building (and pretty clean). There's usually ducks around that you can feed a few leftover fries, etc. Just don't feed them on the areas the restaurant has marked as no feed zones. They are open for both lunch and supper. It has a very laid back atmosphere. Enjoy!

“Chicken or fish! What else do you need? Oh yeah, cole slaw and greens with cornbread.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2011 via mobile

One of the absolute best places to go and eat with friends and family. Great for birthdays. Just don't forget to feed the ducks your left over fries.

“Great Southern Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

Great down home cooked food. The catfish was as good as I've gotten anywhere. Everything was awesome, and can't wait to go back soon!
