Everything was wonderful. Service, fried green tomato app, crayfish poboy, and the shrimp tacos. It was all too much and we had to forgo dessert. Again great service by Katie. Our first visit, definitely will not be our last.

Any time we are in Memphis, we always plan a trip to enjoy the wonderful catfish, hush puppies and sides. Portions are generous, price is very fair and service is fast and friendly. The sides are also very delicious.
