This is probably the best place in Midland to get fried catfish. Be warned, the portions are big! Small location, friendly service, great food!

This is the place for catfish in Midland. Nice and crispy with a very good flavour. Just be observant in the neighbourhood, it's kinda rough.

We had the catfish and shrimp for four. The catfish filets were huge!! Well worth the price. But what really got me was the cleanliness of the restaurant. It is one of the cleanest places I have eaten in, in Midland. I would definitely recommend the catfish filets (which are breaded in cornmeal and served with hushpuppies, coleslaw and French... More

This is another Midland local hotspot. Eddies is tucked away on a back street with catfish that taste like you are in grandmas kitchen.

Great food in Midland. We usually order the fried catfish, fried shrimp and hush puppies. Although seating is available inside, I recommend calling ahead and planning to do carry out--especially with kids as there isn't much room to sit.

You can't beat the fillets of catfish at this joint. Biggest I have ever seen. Combo comes with coleslaw, fries or onion rings and your fillet. Always busy at lunch. There is also takeout.

The catfish was good after the long wait. Which was a surprise since there wasn't that many people there. The people working there seemed to be put out if you asked for anything. They were rude and made you feel like you weren't invited. Would I recommend this place? Sure if you want a decent piece of fish served with... More

Went to Eddie's Catfish for lunch. Got there about 1 pm and the place was empty on a Wednesday. Both of us ordered shrimp and catfish. I was severely disappointed. The reviews I read had spoke very highly of this place. My food seemed to be overcooked and in dirty grease. French fries were the best thing I received but... More
