I love their catfish dinners. Service is always good. This place gets busy at lunch time. Good ice tea too. Parking is tight if your driving anything bigger that a pickup.

We had grilled catfish and shrimp. Very delicious. Their hushpuppies were wonderful. It was a recipe created by the owner. The best food we have had in Louisiana.

The fried catfish was very very good. Large fried fish filets in a delicious batter. The hush pups were very large and moist, not dry like many places. I highly recommend Adams if you like catfish!

The family owned restaurant has good service, food, and atmosphere. They have the best catfish this side of Middendorf's.

Husband had a hankering for hush-puppies so we stopped in for a bite. Hush puppies were pipping hot, slightly sweet with just the right amount of green onion. Several bottled varieties of hot sauce provided the right spicy bite. Breaded Catfish was hot and not greasy but a little bland, fresh coleslaw was wonderful. Service was friendly and efficient.

I've not been to Adams for several years and my wife and I have been talking about making the short trip to Belle Chasse for a couple of months. The perfect opportunity arose recently when some friends from Chicago were in town and staying just a short ferry ride from Belle Chasse. We all got the catfish and some opted... More

The place is ok. Nothing special. The catfish is good. The inside is plane. The people are ok. Better than Salvo's
