I have been there many times and I would definitely recommend this place. I love the steaks but the fried catfish is also one of my favorites. I suggest going early it's always busy but definitely worth it.

Great place to take a date, or your family for an enjoyable dining experience. Sometimes there is live music which is nice. Friendly, family type atmosphere. Great for one or two people, or a big gathering.

Some of the best fried catfish on the planet. Steak and chicken not bad either. Music at times on weekends. 😀👀

The food is great. Best fried catfish in 10 counties. The atmosphere is totally relaxed, down-home buffet style dining. A family run business with a quirky atmosphere. They're only open Friday and Saturday nights, so plan ahead!
