They have the catfish recipe down to a science. Cannot find another restaurant even close to their flavoring. And their recipe for tarter sauce is like not other.

Do you offer gluten free option?

Response from dmalone2016 | Reviewed this property |
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!
