Catfish Dewey's is a total surprise. The location is nothing special, but you go there the first time because somebody said it is the greatest. My first visit and most of my many other visits I eat the fried shrimp. First the small plate of creamy coleslaw Then the best hush puppies I have ever eaten. Then the lightest breaded... More

Differentmenu every night for all you can eat. I chose Thursday for the crab legs. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and I did eat all I could possibly stand. We had a great friendly waitress, and did not have to wait for a 2 person seating. The place was packed, and the staff kept the legs coming all over the joint.... More

We made reservations online but I don't think we needed them. We were seated immediately and greeted with a dozen hush puppies and cole slaw as we placed our order. The service was... More

We had blackened seafood combo. Scallops, shrimp and choice of fish and was so amazing ! The spices in every fork full was spectacular. We also had fried fish and shrimp and it was plentiful! I am getting crab legs next visit. The hush puppies were delicious for house appetizers

While Catfish Dewey’s isn’t much to look at on the outside (it is actually pretty shabby looking) and parking is rather limited, the food makes up for where it lacks in these areas. The all you can eat Alaskan crab legs (offered on Thursdays) are delicious! It isn’t cheap but if you have a big appetite and you love crab... More
