If you like fried food, this is a good choice for you. The outdoorsy themed atmosphere, except for the noise level, is unique and interesting with lots of mounted animals and fish. The meal begins with all-you-can-eat beans, hush puppies, and coleslaw. The fish is...More

First - I hate any thing that lives in water. I always get their country fried steak dinner, with their potato wedges. All their fried foods (to me) seem to have a flavor of fish - that I hate. So my review of this place...More

We are originally from the Great Lakes region of the country so when we found Jumpin Catfish and had their fish it reminded us of home! Thank you for such great home cooking and the family atmosphere!!

Third visit to Jumpin Catfish. Always delicious food and plenty of it. Have always had the fish but am told the country fried steak is wonderful. Never ending beans and slaw.

Jumpin’ Catfish is a great, large family restaurant. I always get the fried catfish filets & homemade mashed potatoes with cream gravy. As soon as you sit down they bring a big bowl of hush puppies, navy beans, and Cole slaw. The peach cobbler was...More

The chicken livers and hushpuppies were very good. Drink refills were very slow. I'll go back for the livers, but I'll have to get the attention of the wait staff sooner about drinks. My friend liked his catfish fillets and the free beans.

The server was excellent and an access to Jumpin Catfish. The baked potato was ¾ baked and cool. The fish and chicken dishes were average.

Our farm-raised, grain-fed catfish is far superior to his muddy river cousin. Scientifically-bred and carefully tended, he has all but acquired a pedigree now that Gourmet magazine rates him the third-best-selling fish in America.Higher in protein than most meats, our freshwater catfish is becoming exceedingly popular among health-conscious American diners-and with good reason. Not only is our catfish low in cholesterol, fat and calories, he also rates high in aesthetic appeal since he has no fishy smell.It is also nutritious, healthy and downright delicious. Now, will we see you at the Annual World Catfish Festival in Mississippi next year? Or at least back at the Jumpin' Catfish next week! We will also cater for 40-500 people just about anywhere!! We come to you and cook in our catering wagon so all the food is cooked and hot on the spot!
