Stopped for a bite and wanted a local fare. Wish we would have driven a bit further. Service not friendly. Food not worth the price. French fries not good, hush puppies cold and hard. Fish OK. Really was hoping it would be a place to remember.

I loved the food. The catfish melted in your mouth. The hush puppies were excellent. Service was quick and friendly. My tea glass never ran dry.

This restaurant has the same name as another one in Mtn. Home, Arkansas, about 45 minutes away. However, there is no comparison. This restaurant just doesn't measure up with the atmosphere, customer service, or quality of food. Don't get me wrong, if you haven't been to the other restaurant by the same name, it will be at least an average... More

Pretty good and always US raised catfish....that is saying something today because I find that even some of the best catfish restaurants have gone to the foreign fish (which I am told is not really catfish). Sometimes they are real busy and turn out hush puppies a little under done but this is not the rule.

The food is pretty good, as long as you enjoy deep fried foods....hush puppies need some improvement.

Fred's in Mammoth is the best fish house in the area. Great fish, hushpuppies and all the trimmings. Frog legs ain't bad either.

I'll start out with my usual gripe about dining out in a dry Arkansas county. For some reason the local powers that be have decided to deny me the option of drinking an adult beverage with my meal. I don't always drink alcohol with my meal even when I can but I enjoy the exercising my adult option to have... More

The cat fish is the best in the state, if not the country. Even if you don't love cat fish, this will get you hooked. The only reason I give this a 4 star rating is the ambience is more cafe than comfy or even cozy. There are other menu items, but cat fish, hush puppies, and pickled green tomatoes... More

If you like good fresh fried catfish or walleye this is the place to go. We always make a stop when visiting relatives in southern Missouri. Worth the short drive down to mammoth. Fish is lightly breaded and crisply fried. Not greasy. Comes with potato, hush puppies, slaw, and pickled green tomatoes and sliced onion if desired at a very... More
