It did not take long to be seated, however, after being seated we were ignored. Large tables in our section took precedent. I can somewhat understand that, but people seated after us git quicker service than us. It took an hour to get food from a restaurant that serves only two options. When going to check out, I asked to... More

We have been coming here since they opened, probably over 30 years, and it was our children's' favorite when they were growing up. It's nice to see that after all these years it's still true to its original mission, providing fun wholesome family atmosphere with good food. We took our 34 year old son and his girlfriend who visited at... More

It's perfectly fine to have such a simple (small) menu when every single item leaving the kitchen is perfectly executed. This was my first experience with Cock of the Walk and my only disappointment is that we don't have one closer to home! All food is excellent. Servers and hostesses were a delight, and caught very well. Lunch was an... More

By far to us Cock of the Walk has the best catfish that we've eaten. Quality Mississippi farm raised catfish. Add to that the slaw, greens and cornbread and the meal is fantastic. A true southern experience. Be aware that this restaurant serves catfish and chicken only so if you're looking for a steak this is the wrong place. But... More

I was here last week and they do not disappoint. It's a simple menu. Fish or chicken. Get the fish you'll Love the tartar sauce. Get a side of greens or fried pickles. Service is always immaculate and the prices are great if you're on a budget.

Enjoyed the catfish and greens very much! Cornbread was not as good as in past.. service was not good, took too long to get food and walked by table many times without filling drinks. Still, best catfish you can get!!

The Cock of the Walk is a restaurant that keeps things simple. They offer two main courses: catfish and chicken. Every order comes with a small skillet of cornbread and greens. The catfish was above average, but the service was very slow. Our waitress did a good job. However, I believe the restaurant did not have nearly enough servers for... More

Great place when you want something delicious, but want to keep it simple. The menu is straightforward, chicken or fish. Excellent for families, small or large groups, and even couples can find a quiet spot and bond over flipping fresh cornbread on a miniature cast iron skillet. Situated next to the Ross Barnett Reservoir, views of the water on a... More

It was my first visit, but it will not be my last. Everything was great and the coleslaw was delicious.
