Wonderful traditional fish restaurant downtown Memphis. Don't expect fancy surroundings, but a wonderful place to go get good seafood before a game or other activity.

You order at the counter.. The fresh oysters were shucked right then and so good.. fair price too. A choice of hot sauce, cocktail sauce or tartar sauce. The catfish had a little too much breading but tasty and cooked when ordered. The sides were very generous...service was quick and helpful

So on first impressions this place wouldn’t have been my number one choice but the food was gorgeous, I had the wings to start and then the bbq shrimp poor boy which was not only fresh tasting but filling too. If you’re in Memphis looking for a place to eat this is the one.

If you are looking for affordable good tasting seafood in the heart of Memphis this is your spot. Lots of menu choices, I had the garlic Catfish platter. The fish was nicely cooked, and accompanied by delicious zucchini and rice with beans. The restaurant is cafeteria style, after ordering you wait until the pager goes off. A good selection of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages is available.
