“New favorite”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Went to catfish country with family and friends and had a great time. The server was very friendly and efficient. We all loved our food since they know how to do fried food right here. One really nice thing about this place is that they bring cole slaw, green onions, and the best biscuits ever when you order. Very unique of them I thought. We will be back.

“Great seafood”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Our friends recently turned us on to Catfish Country in Bartow, FL. I don't know why we haven't been here before but it is a great place. We used to drive to Lake Wales, FL when we wanted good seafood, to go to Scuttles [but it is 40 miles from our home]. Catfish Country serves delicious family style coleslaw on the table, great warm biscuits with honey or cinnamon spread. I've tried the battered haddock and the broiled scallops. Portions were generous and the meal was delicious. Very friendly staff. Recommended to friends on Friday and saw them there on Saturday and they raved about it! Will be back often. I'm curious about the reviewer who said they could only visit once every 6 months. We found the prices to be very reasonable. You can Google "Catfish County" to view their menu and prices.

Great catfish and sea food, we usually vist this dining spot at least once a year, during one of our Florida trips. The portions are large, one can order an all you can eat catfish or order from a fixed menu

“Delicious! Can't wait to visit again!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

We were visiting relatives in Winter Haven and they took us here! At home, we have a favorite catfish place, operated by very close friends of the family. We always have something to say about catfish we eat anywhere else, but not this time! The catfish was delicious. Fresh, tasty and piping hot! Everything was excellent! A great variety of sides -- including fried green tomatoes -- were offered. The menu is quite varied so there is something for everyone. The sweet tea was great, not too sweet!

The staff welcomed us and made us feel at home. Our server was very attentive without being bothersome!

The only thing we were upset about was that our hosts waited until our last night there to take us! We'll be back!
