We had eaten there several years before and it's still as good as before. Crowded at noon but the service was quick.

First, when I searched TripAdvisor, I think I saw there are two separate listings for this one restaurant, so be aware of that in reading reviews. The fish, about the best catfish you'll find. This location also has a really good price for the 'regular catch' -- where you're getting a good meal of fish, fries, hush puppies, slaw, beans... More

This was a surprise for us. It was recommended by our hotel which was great so we took a chance. The oysters were fried to perfection. The staff was very nice and efficient. It was a little confusing to order and find a sitting which is why it only got 4 stars. The chicken fried steak was huge and very... More

If you like seafood, this is a good place to stop. Their food is always good. You go through the line and order and they bring it too your table. No frills but still a good meal

Lunch special for everyone else is $5.49 and comes with all above except beverage. The fries were crispy outside, soft inside. Beans & coleslaw good, catfish was... More

They have the best quality catfish by far. I love the green tomato relish and the hush puppies. Their beans are really good too.

I went to this restaurant on a recommendation of a coworker and I must say that I was pleased with the quality, the taste, and the price. Upon arrival I was greeted with a smile and friendly service. I wasn't sure what to order so I was given some great recommendations. And the recommendation was spot on... The cajun fried... More

My wife and daughters always get the chicken fried steak with all the trimmings. But my mother and I always get catfish, all catfish, and nothing but the catfish. Although I can't decide if I like the plain or the Cajun better. The only place I've ever eaten in Paris. When you only go by once or twice a year,... More

We were regulars at the Sherman establishment a while back. Never having been to the Catfish King in Paris Tx we decided to give it a try tonight which is Thursday, they weren't too busy and no cars at the drive thru. We went thru and checked over the menu. I tried to ask the girl, Heather, a few questions... More
