It's been a long time since I had a fried food extravaganza, but if you're going to do it, do it right. Cock of the Walk does it right. This is casual with a Capital C. A great location for people who have difficulty making decisions as there is a very limited menu: fried dill pickles or onion rings, catfish or chicken, sweet tea or something else to drink. Those fried dill pickles are addictive, the catfish is delicious and even those who don't like greens liked these. We had a large group, on a weekend night and were seated and served very promptly and efficiently. Many restaurants could learn from Cock of the Walk, do 1 thing and do it well.

Yumm is the word, very casual, great for families, sometimes the fish can be greasy if the oil is not fresh, but most of the time it has been great, coleslaw is wonderful as is the turnip greens!!!

If you ask someone the best place to enjoy great catfish on the Reservoir near Jackson, they’ll almost unanimously tell you, “Cock of the Walk.” Please note that they specialize in this and tea, not alcoholic beverages. (But there are some places very close-by for after dinner drinks, if you desire.)

Went to Cock of The WALK based on local recommendations. My wife wanted some good catfish. This place is on the waterfront but couldn't see much since it was at night but seemed like it was a nice area. The catfish and chicken were average tasting but this was an interesting dining experience. The server flipped the corn bread in the air and caught it in the same pan....hard to explain but entertaining. Nice meal but nothing special. Worth a try.

If you like catfish, this place delivers. The fried pickles are delicious, and the flipping of the cornbread never disappoints (especially the kiddos). The portions are enormous, but you can always feed your extra fries to the hungry ducks outside.
