I love seafood. The catfish was not that great, not much taste. The hush puppies and the onion rings are the best thing we ate. Hand battered goodness.More

We chose Fat Daddy's based on the good reviews on TripAdvisor. When we walked in on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was empty, we should have been suspicious. Once we were seated and had our drinks, we proceeded to order shrimp (by it's name,...More

One would normally pass up a restaurant with questionable exterior decore but a nearly full parking lot prompted us to visit. The service was great and so was the food but the portions were small and expensive. Thus our average review.

Description
Welcome to Fat Daddy's Fish grill! We are the winners of Terrell's Best Seafood award by the Terrell Tribune. We are a small business who takes pride in our Fried Catfish and Shrimp. We also have other crowd favorites like PO-Boys's, wings, hamburgers, chicken tenders, shrimp tostadas and shrimp cocktails. Shop small and support our family owned business. You won't regret it! Meet the owner Fat Daddy's Fish Grill is a small family owned restaurant. My name is Mervat and I am from good old Terrell, Texas, born and raised. Chelo, the head honcho around here and also my amazing mother, has strived to perfect the taste of her famous catfish and shrimp. She is well known around Terrell for managing different restaurants in the past and after years of hard work, fulfilled her dream of having her own restaurant. I'm the friendly face in front who takes the love she puts into her cooking and shares it with you. BYOB
