“Once was one time too many”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Without much doubt, this was the worst meal I have had in well over a year. I went in for lunch and was the only person there. A few others came in before I left, but not a successful lunch business. There was one server who was very nice and very professional. After delivering the menu, she told me about the lunch specials. I chose a catfish plate which came with one side and a salad.

Salad was cut strips of lettuce with a tomato and pickle, accompanied by a small package of dressing. At least it was eatable. The catfish had a sauce splashed on both filets, but it was so thin that it became difficult to cut since it was a bit over fried. The sauce had a nice flavor and had both shrimp and crawfish. The baked macaroni was prepared totally without seasoning. Who cooks pasta without salt? This place does! And it was ice cold. Uneatable.

I called the waitress over, and asked for my check, telling her that meal could not be eaten and why. There was no offer of a reduced price or no charge for the still full plates of food. As I was walking out the door of this old Pizza Hut, a young lady stopped me and said that they don't season things here, but put salt and pepper on the table. I mentioned that the catfish while over cooked, was nicely seasoned, and she just looked at me.

I left wishing that the Pizza Hut was still in business.

“Decent place, nice service, but food not very good.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

The service was good. The waitress was nice and attentive. It was clean. But...there was six in our party and most of us didn't like our food or eat much of it. It was expensive since it was seafood. We paid and left most of it on the table.
