This is the first time we ate at Soul Fish Cafe. I had whole catfish with french fries, cajun cabbage, and hush puppies. Others in our party of five adults and two kids had: catfish fillets with mac & cheese, and a pork chop. Te kids had a grilled cheese sandwich and chicken nuggets. Everything was well prepared. Service was... More

Souls Fish is great. Excellent southern styled seafood and sides. This is a great place for lunch. Catfish, tilapia, crawfish, tacos and po boys. You can't go wrong.

Dropped in while staying nearby for a meal after a long days drive. Service was fast and food was fresh. As the name suggests, fish is the theme of the day and they don't disappoint. Treat yourself while in Cooper Young, Memphis.

My husband put me unto this restaurant and the first few times we went together it was great, but I've noticed the last 3 times we went how sloppy they have gotten. We drive a considerate distance to come eat here and for food to be left out and order wrong gets old sooner or later. If you can make... More

We went based on good reviews on Trip Advisor, and we weren't disappointed! Sometimes I find fried catfish to be too salty, but the catfish here was perfect. The shrimp were amazing too. Highly recommend.

We always get the catfish basket here, and did so today as we visited for the first time since the restaurant's recent renovation and expansion. The fish was crispy and hot; the sweet potato fries tasty, the slaw just right. The expansion doubled the size of the dining room and added patio seating, and on a Sunday at lunch both... More

The restaurant has been renovated and no longer looks like the pictures of the exterior on tripadvisor. I added one of the new sign. The food was terrific and very reasonably priced. We had a catfish platter and a soul fish platter, which was a combination of catfish, shrimp and crawfish. I would recommend just getting the catfish platter. The... More

I gave it a 4 because of the help. Nice place also. My husband liked his catfish. I have had more tender shrimp. The flavor was good...just a little tough. The hush puppies were a little over cooked also.
