This restaurant is shore side of the Rez. Watching the sunset and the water so soothing and relaxing. Food and service is good. Great place all round.

Been here (and the one in Nashville) several times. Always got good catfish and chicken, always received good service. We been at the one in Ridgeland 4 times in 2016 so far. We enjoy the food and sitting on the lake watching the sail boats run across the water.

Rustic charm. Corn bread flying in the air. Catfish, slaw and pickled onions describe this local favorite. Great for the family and large groups. You can even call in your order for pickup. The view of the water is a must see.

This is a FRIED CATFISH restaurant - of the first order. You can get chicken and I'm sure it's good, I just can't remember eating chicken because I eat the catfish. And, it's good, as good as you'll get anywhere. And they have plenty of different sides. Of course, they have FF's, but they have good onion rings, turnip greens,... More

Although, the food is good it is not exceptional and the selection is very limited. The atmosphere makes up for the food. servers dressed in keel boat hats, the decor is early keel boat with shades of Mike Fink and Davy Crockett. The view lets you enjoy the activity on the resevoir.

Fish is okay, smaller portions. The drinks are served in tin cups, produces a nasty taste. Do not care for it. Cole slaw was not good. If you want a better fish experience, go to Jerry's in Florence, MS.

Excellent family style meal. Great service. These folks know how to serve a lot of people at once and they do fill this huge place up. Love the greens and catfish! Should go more often.

The go to place for catfish and fixings! It's all good! The service has always been quick and friendly. I would like to see them remodel the restaurant. Great location and view but the place is very dated and has an almost sour smell.

a little on the loud side when full to capacity, great view of the reservoir. Great catfish, pickled onions, coleslaw, turnip greens and the ever famous cornbread skillet!

We came for a family reunion dinner...nice atmosphere...not sure of the theme...had deer heads? The fish lacked seasoning not salt...you can not salt/season fish after its fried and begins cooling down...we had Cole slaw, fries, corn bread and picked onions...nothing to go out the way for..

Thank Lori H
