We eat at Willow Pond frequency for family outings with the whole family. I have only gotten the catfish so I cannot say how their other food is. However, the catfish is good and sometimes the catfish is great. The hushpuppies are super good too especially with butter. The service is friendly and prompt and the restaurant is clean. If...

Willow Pond, is my 2nd favorite place to eat catfish in the Land-Between-the-Lakes/ Paducah/ Benton Kentucky area. Unlike my favorite catfish dinning place. I've eaten at all 3 area restaurants - Calvert City, Eddyville & Aurora Kentucky. All three have good service and the food is pretty much the same - Excellent. Because it is good, go early and be...

Food was great, Service was great, We got fish "3" pieces with 2 sides, and they let us have "1" of each kind of fish, white beans and hush puppies all you can eat, were excellent. The one at the above address was closed, we had to drive 20 miles to get to it. But it was definitely worth the... More

The food is over greasy and served room temperature. My impression is that the oil was old and not hot enough when the fish and hush puppies were fried. I only ate a few bites before feeling sick and leaving the table. My husband ate most of his grilled fish sandwich and was sick for two days! I have complained... More

This is a terrific restaurant with a wonderful atmosphere. The prices are more reasonable than most and the food is just awesome. The bowl of beans and bowl of hush puppies as free appetizers are especially delightful. I plan to eat here on every trip to Cincinnati.

Let me start with the good: the hush puppies and frog legs are terrific. The batter on the legs is perfect. The staff is friendly and helpful. Now for the not so good: oddly enough, it's the catfish. The batter was great and cooked perfectly, but the fish was very very dry. I don't know what causes this, but it... More

My husband stopped there on our way to Nashville, I loved the white beans that are served with the meals (it reminds me of my mama and her Louisiana roots). The hush puppies are fantastic(thank you for wrecking my diet)! We both had the fish sandwich and left the restaurant so full, I hope we make Nashville before we fall... More

This restaurant is only open on weekends.From the moment it opens til the minute it closes, the restaurant is full. The reason is simple; the food is excellent. I enjoy the fried catfish, while my wife prefers the cod. The waiters bring out homemade coleslaw-either vinegar or mayonnaise, white beans, and hushpuppies, and it is all you can eat. Just... More
