Went for lunch - prices comparable to pappadeaux lunch menu but food is far less superior. Food was rather bland, and a bit overpriced, but good. Had blackened catfish with baked potato. Salad bar was good - lots of variety.

We live in the area and frequent Catfish Cabin for their fried shrimp. During a recent visit I wanted to be different and ordered the Fried Crab Cake Dinner. Big mistake!! The initial presentation resembled 3 small brown hockey pucks. And the inside was awful. There was so little crab meat in the cakes it is ludicrous to call them... More

Great food, salad bar, peanuts at the table and an ice cream machine. Have never had a bad meal here. Just don't forget your silverware and napkins at the salad bar, I have been here many times and still forget to get them.

The service was extremely slow and the food is way overpriced for what you pay for it!! Also fish was not fresh at all!! VERY dry!!

We live here in Lumberton and visit Catfish Cabin often. The food is always great and the service couldn't be better. Make sure you try Catfish Cabin.

The first time we ate here it was okay. However, I've eaten at much better catfish restaurants. The fish wasn't seasoned at all! And, Why leave a tip when you have to get your own napkins, tartar sauce, silverware, etc. We won't be back, but we do love Floyds!!!

This restaurant offers good food in a casual atmosphere (cardboard egg cartons on ceiling). The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food does not have a lot of seasoning, but offers a big variety for all family members.

Loved the fried shrimp and the seafood gumbo! Just wish that they served gumbo all year long. Great service and food is always consistently good. And if you love peanuts, they are in abundance to crack and throw the shells on the floor.

We go to this restaurant often. Well we did go often. We stopped going because the fried fish had gotten to be just batter crispy but hardly any fish. We had friend in from Colorado we had taken them here before and they wanted to go back. So we went. Same thing just crispy batter and high prices. I did... More
