We have been going to Catfish Charlie's for years, it is a great place to eat fried sea food . Their, beans, french fries and hush puppies are awesome. The beer is cold. The slaw is sweet. We get the three way platter and then ask to remove the other item for extra shrimp and catfish.

Came here for lunch when we were on vacation. The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious!! I got the catfish and shrimp plate. They serve you hushpuppies as an appetizer and they were so good!!! The tartar sauce was absolutely wonderful. Definitely recommend eating here if you're in the area!!

Good food service not so good. But I didn't mind too much they were kind of busy, and I came for the food, nor for the conversation.

It was okay. Really nothing to write home about. I will say, the hushpuppies and tartar sauce were really good, but the gumbo and shrimp in red sauce over rice were just so so. I was really expecting more after reading all the rave reviews....
