“Love this catfish place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

The best all-you-can-eat catfish/shrimp. Great to accommodate families. Good price for some good fish.

“Great Food...low prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

We visit the Catfish King each time we're in town....absolutely love the hush puppies and beans. Truly a Shreveport/Bossier landmark of restaurants.

“Finally others are starting to see this dump, for what it is!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2010

I've said this place was a pit for a few years now. I've had fish out of a plastic bag from the supermarket that was better than this. Plus the fact that it looks like a dirty run down dump.

“Lots of protein at the salad bar if you count FLIES”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2009

I had heard people talk about David Beard's Catfish King and felt I would try it. Sorry, but I won't be back. It was dingy, dirty and unwelcoming. The fish was fair but the hush puppies were processed garbage. The fries were OK.
Service was rude and slow. The price was satisfactory for the amount of food.
