Have eaten here years ago but won’t return. WAY to expensive for Cisco food truck food. Nothing outstanding at all except the fried green tomatoes and the sweet tea.

We both sampled their Cajun fare and were pleasantly surprised. They have a nice deal called the “set up” which is brought to the table promptly after ordering. It includes pinto beans, hush puppies, slaw, and their famous relish. You can request a salad instead,...if you prefer.More

We were in town for a triathlon and the restaurant was busier than usual they said. The waitress was hustling and the food came out fast and was good. We both had a breaded tilapia with cream sauce and shrimp. It was an enjoyable dinner.

Went on a weekday. Severely understaffed. The waitress was doing all she could with no help. The food was marginal at best and ridiculously overpriced.

Food was quite slow but waitress was great and apologetic, it wasn’t her fault at all. We were told last time the presumably owner (older gentleman) couldn’t find workers. Well, tonight we may have really figured out why he doesn’t have workers …. He was...very rude and uncaring when checking out. Not a good business plan when it already took almost an hr to get our food. Not kidding. Won’t return until there’s a new owner/manager.More

My wife and I were out for a drive to to get away for the day. We stopped in at the Fish Net around 2:30pm. She order a Tuna steak with mixed vegetables and I ordered a Ribeye with the same mixed vegetables. The meal...for 2 people was $56.00. The Tuna was cooked perfectly but came on a bed of rice which I might add was fake rice (minute rice) the vegetables were from a package frozen so they were rubbery. You would think if you are going to charge $56.00 for 2 meals and 2 teas you would get real rice and fresh vegetables. Very disappointed for the price of the foodMore

We come for the catfish which is the best we have eaten. The hush puppies, beans, chow chow, etc are very very good. We drive from Texas to eat here 3 or 4 times a year.

We stayed at DeGray Lake Resort and stumbled upon this place. Got there before but owner came out and welcomed us in. Food was excellent. Had their coconut shrimp and experienced a “set up” for the first time. Didn’t realize that set ups were bottomless....Fried bread pudding was a nice twist to the norm. Christa was our waitress and was very attentive. Owner dropped by the table on occasion. I will return if back in town.More

This is a WAY WAY off the beaten path place but worth the drive. It has a bit of an identity disorder but the seafood was fresh and excellent. Portion sizes were massive. Great staff and fair prices.

Was in a rush and short on time so we hoped that they would be quick. Set down and were out 35 minutes later! Food was good, quick, and service was quick and helpful too!

Stopped here on our way to San Antonio and were very pleased with everything about this restaurant. The service is fast and very friendly. I had the catfish and it was delicious. Eat here if you get a chance.

We were at DeGray State park for the 4th weekend, and being on the lake made us crave fish, so we headed to th Fish Net Family restaurant. The fried catfish is cooked to perfection. I loved the "set up". So few places are this...generous with their side orders. The pickled green tomato relish, brown bean, cole slaw and hush puppies were delicious and perfect compliment to the fried fish ! We also ordered the coconut shrimp as an appetizer. The flavors were light and delicious! It was served with a apricot sweet & sour sauce. The staff was very polite and attentive. We will be back to eat fish when we are back in the part of Ark.More

Horrible!!! A hair came in the alligator bites, fried in the batter. We returned it immediately to the kitchen. The manager did not care about this total lack of sanitation and hygiene. He changed us for mediocre hamburgers and he said he would not charge...for the alligator with Cook's hair. A total disgrace if restaurant and manager, only the waitress was apologetical and her service was good.More

A hair came fried with the alligator bites batter. When I told the manager he unapologetically said that he didn't charge for it. Then he charged for the rest of our meal. We also ordered hamburgers which were just below standard. The manager look angry...at the waitress name and I told him that the hair was not her fault. Anyways he looked again at her name, and said she should have told him. We gave her 15% tip. Bottom line this restaurant food and manager are just horrible and a disgrace for the food and hospitality industry. It was ridiculously arrogant when he implied that to compensate for his lack of sanitation guidelines we were not charged for the food with hair. I just told him that it be totally wrong.More
