This is a fine Southern fish joint. The breaded catfish was great. The sides were good. Hushpuppies were perfect. No alcohol served. Waiter was very friendly and service was prompt.

We had excellent service but the food was average. My catfish fillets were overlooked and my nephews shrimp was under cooked. Slaw and hush puppies were pretty good

I'm not crazy about catfish, so I had grilled chicken tenders. It was great. Everyone who had the catfish liked it. Plenty of hush puppies and slaw and both were good. Service was a little slow. I think our server was a little overworked. We...More
