McGehee's is a neat out of the way restaurant for some good family style catfish. For one price you get all you can eat catfish, homestyle fries, cole slaw, hush puppies and pickled green tomatoes. Service is quick and food is good. They also offer a menu to order from, which I have never done - I always get the fried all you can catfish. The all you can eat allows fried, cajun or grilled. Please note if you order the all you can eat catfish, only order what you think you can eat they can always bring you more if you are still hungry. You will not be able to take it with you - so don't ask.
This time the hush puppies were a bit dry, still good but not as moist as usual.
The atmosphere is wonderful - you can see the cattle and the river from the restaurant and the grounds are beautiful.
When I say out of the way, I really mean it. Exit off I35 at exit 15 (Ryan/Marietta) and turn towards the Dollar Tree Distribution Center (towards Ryan, away from downtown Marietta)-keep driving and on the left about a mile down you will see the McGehee's sign, turn and you will keep going until you have to turn left or right. There you will see another sign "Restaurant --->" which is Allen Rd. Finally you will see one last sign about 1/3 a mile up then you will see the driveway.
It is worth the trip down the out of the way country road. Enjoy your visit!
