“Not what it used to be!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

Have been stopping by Brown's for years to get gumbo and/or catfish. You can't expect too much from a gas station bait shop "restaurant." However, for years the service has been good and the food great at a reasonable price. Over the past couple years, the prices have gone through the roof. Prices now approach a real restaurant with linen tablecloths and actual waiters. My wife and I stopped by today. My wife and I both spoke to the man behind the counter who took our order. We got no response and I will make no further unprofessional comments as to his appearance and manners. This was the last straw for us....I am not paying real restaurant prices for service that can't speak along with extremely small portions and have someone take $25 from me for 6 catfish strips, 1 baked potato, 3 small hushpuppies, 1 small coleslaw, and a small bowl of gumbo with 2 fountain drinks....and you pay for a refill. Pass on by and go to a real restaurant.

“Dinner on Caney Lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

This place is your basic down home food on the lake place to eat in the middle of a bait stand and a convenience store. The fried fish and burgers are tops. Add fries or tots and you can feel your arteries hardening. Good stuff. The staff is friendly but a little quirky. When you're done with dinner you can pick up some worms or crickets to fish the lake.

“Great fried catfish.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is the marina on caney lake . They have the usual fast food, burgers, fries,etc. but their specialty is catfish dinners. Very tasty, and a lot of food for your money. Excellent cole slaw with the fish dinner. Sweet potato fries are also a treat. Skip the ribeye steak, overpriced and not that good, too tough. Hamburgers are also good, and service is fast.
