Restaurant is filthy. Floors are dirty. Just really grimy and run down. Bathrooms are filthy also. Parking lot is very rough and lots of potholes.

Local eatery with good service. We got the all you can eat shrimp and fish and what you get is plenty! We had plenty on the first trip. Also, comes with a tasty salad bar and friendly service. The shrimp and fish were good.

Had the fried shrimp plate. The shrimp were delicious and fresh. They were large to jumbo's. The service was spot on and didn't have to ask for anything.

I am not sure how this place gets such good reviews. We drove for an hour just to eat oysters at Cathy's. We found the place unclean, the waitress grim and unsmiling, and the oysters fried in rancid grease. I had a dozen (actually 11)...More

Fish and shrimp very good, grilled or fried, generous portions. Salad bar is fine, service is very good. Can be quite crowded but service usually stays decent.
