The restaurant have great food, great service is easy to find and I like to see that it was always busy so you can see the food is fresh , you can order to take out. Not much parking. They also have on some specials for each day and a no sharing policy on some dishes. Overall I like it... More

Casual dining, but good reasonably priced food, their specialty is catfish, but everything tastes good, breaded oysters, breaded clams, mahi mahi, shrimp, tilapia. All fish has a choice of grilled, breaded and fried or blackened. Always busy same owner for 40 years.

We were on vacation and we were looking for someplace local that we couldn't get back home. We had a starving 5 year old so we made a quick decision. The food was amazing. I kinda didn't like their no sharing policy, especially since my 5 year old wanted crab legs and it would have made more sense for her... More

Well we sat at the bar and had our meal and the staff were very friendly, attentive and willing to accommodate a change to the menu (wrong time of day) without any problem. The food was fast, good and there was enough of it. It is hard to say much about fried catfish - it was fine. Not great. The... More

The place seemed quite crowded and busy, however we didn't have to wait to be seated. I had wanted crawfish and noticed they had it on their menu. The service was ok. However the food wasn't anything to rave about. The crawfish wasn't seasoned good at all. It was bland and tasteless. The food was reasonably priced. They give you... More

The place is very good. I had the crab legs and it was seasoned very well. Even tho I did ask for old Bay seasoning, I didn't even need it. Our waiter was on point and I didn't have to ask him anything. They gave so much crab legs that i couldn't finish it. But it's worth the price. The... More

That's what I went for and got some really good ones last year around this time. They were packed with regulars but fortunately I did not have to wait. Lots of extra sides however I went for the claws and they did not disappoint. Very nondescript looking location and it can be hard to find a parking spot.

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
