This small "hole in the wall" joint was great. We had the fried green tomatoes as appetizer. Lightly breaded and HOT from the fryer. Great taste.My wife had the catfish nuggets while I had the filets. The waitress was extremely helpful & offered that I could have one filet fried & the other grilled. As I've never had grilled catfish,... More

The food is delicious! Friendly family atmosphere. You can find a smile and know they will take good care of you. Whether you dine-in or carry-out. My husband & I have enjoyed dining here for years.

Me and my mother went here and ordered two sundaes. The sundaes both had rotten bananas, the food isn't even that good... I recommend just going to Jacks next door.

This is a great local spot that is a hole in the wall filled with their regular customers. My favorite is the fried catfish, but they also have a very good chicken club sandwich. Save room for dessert as the hot fudge cake is wonderful, but don't miss the lemon ice box pie, if they have not run out when... More

Some of the best grilled fish ever, very busy place and the food is consistent every time, "Amazing". The fried fish is great not greasy like other places I've had, don't understand other posts. A must when in town!!!

I come here a few times a week. Didn't expect much from a hole in the wall but boy was I wrong! Taste like good ole fashion Merican cuisine! The catfish was delicious even to this Cajun pallet! And it's cheap!

although this is a landmark for the town, we have tried it several times and tried to get into the vibe. however, i have to say i don't like it at all and can barely eat the food. the place looks dingy and feels greasy and the staff is usually snippy. the last time i was there, i ordered chicken...

If you want to taste your Southern-style catfish, go somewhere else. Salads are decent, burgers mediocre, and anything fried from their menu may as well be anything else fried from their menu. Catfish, hushpuppies, and fries all taste exactly the same.

It's a little "hole in the wall" that's barely visible through all the cars at lunch time. The food is consistently good (I've eaten there numerous times in the past 12 yrs.) and I don't think the menu has changed significantly in 10 or so years. It's not "broke" so it doesn't need "fixin'".
