Catfish and all the fixings. Everything was great the food and the service was excellent. The blackberry cobbler and ice cream is a must. I suggest calling ahead and putting your name on the list.

We have exceptional service here. Our food was not very hot and the fish was a little over-cooked. If you are not a fried food fan - pass on this.

This is a great place to eat. I would come back in a heartbeat, and I don't even like fish. The sides they bring are amazing, you don't even need an entree. My husband had the all-you-can-eat catfish thought it was great. The staff was...More
