I, along with my wife, am a very critical connoisseur of fried catfish and it must be hot out of the grease, firm crunchy outside and cooked done, but not overly, on the inside. If one element is missing then it doesn`t pass our test....More

Have eaten here fairly often over the years, the fish is consistenly good, the service can be spotty. Get here early on Friday night, they run out of fish sometimes (and space). Ps, bring your own lemon.

Have eaten here many times and its always good catfish, but the hush puppies are just OK. Service is always friendly and professional (at least as good as you can get around here LOL) and fun to enjoy your meal atmosphere.

As a review stated... if your shirt has sleeves you are over dressed. That's true. Good food but not the best catfish in the USA. Did not live up to all the hype from reviews. Heavy breading on fish.

Went there with local friends so it was highly recommend. We had to wait about 20mins for a table but once seated service came quick. Unfortunately even though it was only about 7.45 they didn't have any Catfish fillets, so the order was changed to...More
