My friends had the... More

We stopped in just to get a drink but ended up eating some healthy fried pickles and cheese sticks! The staff, owners I guess, were extremely friendly. As we sat a lot of locals showed up to eat lunch. That speaks volumes about a local joint.

My husband and I both ordered catfish. I had fillets and he had whole catfish. It was the best fish I have ever eaten. Fries, okra, beans, hush puppies, coleslaw were excellent!! Service was great and very friendly. We will be going back!! It gets 5 stars!!

Nothing fancy, just good home cooking and great food. They have had some hard times in recent days. They had their home and restaurant flood by the spring rains and Caddo Lake, but they have came back and are now open for business again. We had a part of 7 there on 7/8/16. We had fried catfish fillets, whole small... More

Stopped here for lunch after visiting Caddo Lake. This is a little mom and pop diner, our waitress was wonderful. The Chicken Fried Steak is outta this world with homemade cream gravy. We will definitely return!
