Great place for Catfish.....the original is still fried - crispy, golden brown but baked fish now an option, as well. Hushpuppies are small, light and fluffy, never doughy. White beans and fried potatoes complement the fish dinner perfectly. Closed Monday & Tuesday and not fancy so you can go directly after fun day at the lake.

Great catfish and hushpuppies, coleslaw and white beans. Plenty of cold ice tea and dessert if you have room.

Been going to Catfish Kitchen since my now grown children were Catfish Clubbers. Now the grandchildren enjoy it. My husband and I have progressed to the baked fish while the "kids" still enjoy it fried . Call ahead if you want baked. Fried pickles a delight and dessert good too. The main event is the ever sweet and delicious catfish.... More

This a great restaurant with outstanding food! They're known for their catfish and hush puppies. I've never been disappointed with any the food, though, or service for 25+ yrs! If you can keep from eating them all, save a hush puppy or two to feed the fish! :)

Why even fish? I don't like to clean fish, I can't cook, hate the thought of doing dishes. I love to go out to eat, Catfish Kitchen has good food, then you go back to a comfortable hotel.

Frankly, anybody that doesn't "get" this place simply knows nothing about Southern cooking or fried catfish. Owned by wonderful folks that I have done business with for over 30 years. No telling how many times I've eaten here and never had a bad meal. The slaw and hushpuppies are excellent, the white beans are as good as it gets...always. And... More

The best catfish in western Ky. We don't eat here a lot but when we want catfish this is where we go. I can't stand to cut into a piece of catfish and have it pink or runny inside. Have never ever had that happen at this restaurant. I always make reservations or you probably won't get in.

Thank Ron R
