“Fantastic catfish - tacky decor!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

This restaurant has been serving since 1982 and the decor certainly looks 30 years old. If you can look past the mix-match of window treatments and the plastic table cloths to dig into some great catfish, you won't be disappointed!
After a long day of shopping at CANTON FIRST MONDAY MARKET DAYS on Labor Day weekend Sunday, we were hungry! We both selected the "regular" fried catfish platter which was 5 pieces of catfish with fries or baked potatoes, cole slaw, 2 "pups" and this uniquely tasty green tomato relish along with a big ole slice of sweet onion. All this for $7.95! YUMMY!!!
Waitress told us they buy their fresh catfish out of Louisiana.
Lots of seafood items on the menu - even all-you-can-eat shrimp and catfish for $12! The take-out was very busy for a Sunday evening.

“Pretty average”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

We had a meal here while overnighting in Athens as it was the only restaurant we could walk to from our motel. We had the catfish and fries, the fish was battered and tasteless, you could only taste the batter. We asked for our fries crispy and brown but they just came pale and soft as normal, Cheap enough but very disappointing we were the only ones there and the restaurant inside is very run down, we would not go back.
