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..

This was my first visit to a place my family has been bragging about 4 years. I actually was there on the 4th of July and loved everything about it. We order the catfish, greens and cornbread. I have to say I was a bit skeptical but they won me over 100%. The catfish was some of the best I... More

While in Mississippi I decided to try a Catfish restaurant and was advised by a local that Cock the Walk was the best. He was right. As other reviewers have indicated the menu only consists of catfish or chicken, but that was alright as I went specifically for the catfish. I was seated immediately by a window so I could... More

Went back expecting to enjoy the meal like I did last time. Menu for lunch during the week is very limited. I order the "catfish filets (2)" and what they actually served as 2 tiny pieces of catfish that MAYBE equaled one filet. I mentioned that to the waiter and he said that is the way they serve it. Said... More

We used to have one of these in our town. We were a little disappointed when we saw the menu was different, but was still good food. Fairly quick service but had to wait on our check. We had a window table, but with two young kids, 3 & 1, it was difficult to keep their attention. The ducks outside... More

We have eaten here several times, but having moved from the area and back for a visit, we wanted to eat at the restaurant. It seemed better than previous times eating at the restaurant. The service was top-notch. The Catfish was cooked perfectly. The entire meal was great. If you are visiting the area and want good Catfish with a... More

I have been eating at Cock of the Walk since 1984 and have never had a bad piece of fish there! IMHO this is the premier catfish place in the south. Always get the greens as an app to go with the coleslaw, fish, hushpuppies, and fries. This location is my favorite, right on the rez! You can arrive by... More
