“Down home Southern cooking....and hospitality....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Didn't get my catfish dinner in Little Rock this trip so asked around about a good place to go in Rogers. Everyone recommended Catfish John's and I can understand why. Excellent catfish - big portions, not greasy, and tender - pinto beans to start and I had a side order of okra. WAY too much food to eat so took a doggy bag home. John was at the register talking to guests, walked around and chatted with us during the meal, wait staff were always there with fresh tea, funny (funny) card selection that we spent time on as we left. Lots of pictures on the wall and local memoribilia. Just a fun relaxing place to go for great food and service!

“Little skimpy but not bad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Pace was clean, good food, average price. You just didn't get a lot of food for what you paid. Family style place, good to bring the kids. Would go back again.

“Good Catfish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Ate here with my kids following a ballgame in Fayetteville. Friendly service. Large portions. We were stuffed by the time we left. Fish was very fresh and done well.

“Good food, good folks, clean and bright!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

Have gone here for years. Always good, always clean, always friendly! Have known the owner for years. Be sure to add this to your list for a good old family dinner! Be sure to ask for the tomato relish!

“Really good catfish and pinto beans like Mom used to make”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed our lunch of fried catfish, hush puppies, pickled green tomatoes and pinto beans. Food was really good. Service was friendly, but they didn't check on us after delivering the food. We had to flag them down for iced tea refills. I would go again just because the meal was so good though.
