Catfish is good, not as good as it used to be. Place is just a building with tables and chairs. No ambience at all!! Service was good. Good home cooked vegetables!!

I went in for dinner and ordered a vegetable plate and wings. The vegetables were cooked true southern stye and the wings were some of the best I have ever had. There was a good sized crowd for a Wednesday night at 8:00 PM. I will make the Soul Fish Cafe a regular stop whenever I visit Memphis

My husband needed a break from all the BBQ. This place was amazing. Great service and awesome food. Hubby said it was some of the best catfish he's had. We almost couldn't find it because of the construction but definitely don't give up finding it. It's definitely worth a u-turn or two.

Although this place may look closed (due to construction), it is very much open! Such great southern food here. I had the fried catfish with mac&cheese and sweet potato fries. Delicious! We were very full after our lunch. I will definitely come back if I visit Memphis again.

As it is with everything in the States, particularly down south, the food is not overly healthy and comes in absolutely ridiculous portions, but by gods does it taste good! Soul Fish Cafe is no exception. Just be sure to order sensibly, unless you want to roll out the door.

We ended up at this one by mistake. We wanted a sampler and they don't serve those here. The waitress was a tad uptight : ( Our food was good, the atmosphere causal (under reconstruction) Best thing I have liked here and all through Memphis....no wait, been lucky, yes. Would try the other locations. The one in Germantown looked real... More

Excellent for; excellent service; and did I say excellent food!!! The place is under construction, but still open. I was in a party of six hungry adults, and EVERYTHING we ordered was excellent! I will definitely eat here whenever I return to Memphis.
