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.

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!

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.

This restaurant is located right on Ross Barnett Reservoir and has excellent views. It has a nautical theme. The menu is very limited -- catfish plate or chicken plate in a choice of 2 sizes. 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
