Had the catfish and shrimp plate. Typical fried food it was nothing special. The waiter was very nice and concerned I was not cleaning my plate. They do give you a large Texas size portion so you will not leave hungry.

I like this place a lot. Nice decor, relaxed atmosphere, friendly service, dependable food. My dad really likes the catfish and hush puppies.

I had the grilled salmon and their onion rings. Both were great, as well as the rice. The only thing I'd stay away from in the future in the Lone Star beer, if it should actually be referred to as beer in the first place.

I usually go for the seafood. It's always fresh and very good. They also have great burgers and steaks. They also have a bar. I hope this was helpful. Be sure to try the crab cakes!
