Always a great place. Old, local, but worth a visit if you live here or just passing through. The food is great. The sweet tea is awesome. Be sure to check out their daily specials.

Maybe 4-5 years and we are a frequent visitor to catfish Dewey, same welcoming faces, honest simple food, GREAT VALUE, wonderful flavors and fast service. My favorite plate is the seafood combo platter, grilled or fried, scallops, shrimp, and catfish fillet with fries, coleslaw and hush puppies...$20

We are from Ohio and this is our second time here. The place is nothing to look at outside limited parking but inside is a bar and great atmosphere. The all you can eat crab legs on Sundays was awesome They just kept coming has to ask them to stop bringing them. Good service and great food.

Its a hole in the wall with the best food ever. The scallops and fried clams are huge and so good. The snow crab is very fresh. I come from Denver just mainly to visit this place. Everything is just delicious

Catfish Dewey's is a great place for seafood. Everyday has an all you can eat special. The prices are very reasonable and the service is great. There may be a short wait, but it is worth it. Wonderful fried oysters and grilled scallops.

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

Wow! What a meal. We were visiting Ft. Lauderdale and looking for fresh seafood at a reasonable price in a comfortable atmosphere - and we found it! 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
