The menu is limited to catfish and chicken but if you're looking for outstanding catfish, this is it. We make this a "must" whenever we come to the area. You will not walk away hungry. And for those with a smaller appetite get the half portion.

The plates come with greens, coleslaw, corn bread, hush puppies and French fries. The catfish is very good, the sides less so. This restaurant is... More

Love the food, a little loud, but good dining. Had a great anniversary dinner there. Fish is great, turnips and cornbread, wonderful and love the coleslaw. Something for everyone, some like the chicken better. The servers are always very friendly.

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.
