Approx. 11 years ago while visiting with a 'great' friend at Un. of Miss. Med. School, I inquired about a great place for dinner. He called it 110% - drive South on Hwy 49 South for approx. 12 miles and when you run out of commercial businesses, on the left you will notice a big white igloo in a pine... More

Upon our recent dining at Jerry's, we received our ticket and was charged .50 for tap water. Very good fried catfish and sides. I knew this day was coming due to restaurants charging $2.50 for a glass of tea when you can make a pot for .50.. Just saying!!!

My wife and I ate with some friends of ours. The food was hot and fresh and was very tasty. We enjoyed the food. Our waitress was a little slow but she was overwhelmed with another large crowd. They charged my friend and his family .50 cents for water? $2.50 total for a family of 5. I've never seen a... More

We went here while visiting our Aunt and she guaranteed us it was the best in the south and she was right...the turnip greens and coleslaw was out of this world.

Typical catfish house with not so typical food. Best catfish, shrimp and oysters in the area. Whole or filets, combination platters with various selections. Choose sides such as French fries or turnip greens. Good hushpuppies. Lemon, onions, tartar sauce, etc. Open Thursday - Sunday. Sometimes a wait but well worth it.

We've eaten there more times than I can count, the food and service is exceptional, and that for me makes up the wait time.

I have been to this location, and it is just (OK). I would tell anyone to take the time to go up the road to Berry's Seafood & Catfish House and you will so happy that you did! Berry's is a true gem, and I don't ever want it to leave Florence, MS.

If you are looking for the best catfish & fixins in the South, you can stop looking. For years, this giant igloo looking building has been the home of the greatest catfish you'll ever find. The hush puppies must be made with a dash of cocaine because they are very habit formin'.

I really wanted to love this place.... My friend and I walked in and waited to be greeted... But that never happened... We were shuttled upstairs where we sat at a table only to be moved by the server because table lacked a napkin dispenser... Waitress did not introduce herself did not offer appetizers... Got our drink order and then... More
