Restaurant details
Reviewed May 7, 2019

Soul Fish Cafe is by far the best place for catfish in the midsouth. The service is always fast and friendly. The food is always hot and great-tasting. When we can't think of anyplace else to eat, we always just say "Soul Fish!" Never been disappointed at any of their restaurants.

Everything was wonderful. Service, fried green tomato app, crayfish poboy, and the shrimp tacos. It was all too much and we had to forgo dessert. Again great service by Katie. Our first visit, definitely will not be our last.

I ordered a Southwest salad with chicken to-go. It did not come as advertised on the menu at all. The mixed greens were some really poor looking iceberg and romaine. There was no guacamole, pico, or cheese on the salad at all. It was just some lettuce, a little bit of corn, chicken, some poorly drained black beans.

You just can not go wrong at Soul Fish! One of our favorites to hit when in Memphis. The fried catfish will melt in your mouth, Hush Puppies perfectly seasoned and drinks refilled almost before you ask. Be careful when your food comes because they deliver it piping hot! It's great to get such a fresh hot dinner delivered perfectly and fast. I ordered a small side salad thinking I would enjoy that and one piece of fish, and the salad was big enough for a meal. And try the desserts! We had the Mississippi Mud dessert and it was a large portion of a brownie covered with a sauce, served with a huge scoop of ice cream. It was plenty to share and so very good!
Our server Karema really outdid herself and did a great job. She was constantly on the move, helping many, but always had a moment to stop by and check in with us.
Soul Fish might not be a night of fine dining, but we think it's a fine place, great food, great servers and you always walk away knowing you've had plenty of great food to eat.
Be prepared to wait a bit during busy lunch and dinner times, but there's seating inside and out, and it's worth the wait. We only waited about 10 minutes at a 6pm dinner time for a table of 2, but it was a packed out restaurant.
We will be back!

Any time we are in Memphis, we always plan a trip to enjoy the wonderful catfish, hush puppies and sides. Portions are generous, price is very fair and service is fast and friendly. The sides are also very delicious.
