What can I say about Cock of the Walk other than it doesn't live up to its name. I thought this was going to be the best food Jackson had to offer. Boy, was I wrong!! For starters, they only sell catfish and chicken. I'm...More

Enjoyed our food. This is the place if you love catfish. It has that southern feel for you. You can look at the reservoir while waiting or after eating. We enjoyed it all!

Went here for a group function. As usual, the catfish was outstanding. I love their tartar sauce and cornbread. The pickled onions are also one of my favorites. You can't beat the cold ice water served in the classic tin cups. This is probably the...More

A great place for fried catfish and a great place with kids. Cornbread flip always entertaining. Fried pickles and catfish delicious. A bit busy, chaotic, and loud at times but worth it for the catfish.

The fried chicken tenders and cornbread were very good. The Cole slaw was in a pool of mayonnaise sauce, hush puppies were dry and the greens were really bad (bland and smelly). The atmosphere is chaos with so many people, a lot of children and...More

just for the Food I would give Cook of the Walk 5 stars. It is excellent. I have never had the chicken because I always get catfish trimmings and a pot of greens. Appetizers are excellent but I save my appetite for my faves. The...More

I called and asked that question. Sadly with the catfish and chicken being fried there is not a gluten free option unless you want to fill up on the greens and slaw. Which would not be that bad, both are wonderful!
