This place was referred to us by the lady at the federal deposit museum tour across the street. There about a quarter mile apart. The food here was awesome. All kinds of fish and southern side dishes.

Upon entering, I waited a while to be acknoledged. I ordered a fairly expensive tuna sandwish. It was not restaurant quality. There was no ambiance, no warm feeling and I was not pleased with my choice.

We live not far away and phone in orders for pickup on a regular basis. It is quick, easy and tasty. Those who run the place are friendly and will try to accommodate special request. The catfish, okra and greens are a favorite. There are a couple locations around town (the 3360 Troost location relocated to 31st and Main, there... More

I wasn't sure either, but the signature fish omelette was very good, served with a side of home fries! Fish, roasted tomato, spinach, and garlic I'll bet the chicken and waffles are good too. Restaurant is on the corner of Main and 31st Streets.

This is basically a soul food restaurant but its primary specialty seems to be fried catfish. They also have items such as chicken wings, meatloaf, and sides include items like red beans and rice, green beans, coleslaw, fries,... More

The Comfort Inn recommend Lufti's, along with Trip Advisor recommendations. Being almost empty at 6:30 pm was our first tip. Then, out of shrimp and with three of the six fountain dispenser with empty signs. We chose blackened catfish (no lemon available); macaroni and cheese..the food was edible, not not even good. Avoid this place.

My two boys and I really enjoyed the catfish, this is kinda a little hole in the wall nothing fancy but the food and the service make up for their shortcomings in decor. We will definitely return.
