The grilled fish was soggy and flavorless. It was a waste of money and time... Should have gone to the Riverbend down the road, instead.

Small cafe-type restaurant with excellent waitresses definitely has some of the best catfish and hushpuppies I've ever had -and in large portions. Arrive hungry so you can eat your fill!

You haven't experienced Arkansas until you pay a visit to Fred's Fish House in Mammoth Springs. truly Southern and, for a Yankee such as myself, a unique dining and cultural experience. the atmosphere is very casual. the tables are simple and the red vinyl covered dining chairs and fishing nets hanging from the ceiling complete the ambience.

Now, about the food. I couldn't believe my companions (who live in Missouri) had never had a fried dill pickle. All agreed it is a real culinary treat. The fried ochre and catfish just could not be beat.

If you go to the springs, which are interesting, be sure to stop in at Fred's. You' ll be glad you did!

We always stop when we pass that way. Very country but good food. Don't dress up or you will be out of place. Just good food.

This is one of the best fish places in the region. People literally come from miles around to eat here. I’m not much of a fish guy myself, but everyone raves about it. The hushpuppies are awesome and they have great chicken and hamburger options as well. Most locals get the "Thursday Special", which oddly it’s available every day of the week. The meal includes a generous helping of fish or chicken strips, hushpuppies, cole slaw and maybe one other side. You get all this for around $10. This is a quaint, southern style place with friendly service. It’s located right on Main Street of Mammoth Spring with lots of little shops to check out after you eat.
