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

I love the food at Cock of the Walk! My favorite are the greens and a cornbread and coleslaw . The atmosphere at the reservoir location is special because of the waterfront views, but the Hwy 49 location offered shrimp which are delicious!
