The fish was absolutely fried to perfection as always, and was not the least greasy. We had a large party, but still got impeccable service. The view is wonderful, and I WILL be back.

We have to drive about 45 minutes one way to get to this restaurant. And it is well worth the drive. Their catfish fillets are large and well-cooked. They have the best hush puppies around. Don't get dressed up to go there because it's extremely...More
