Catfish was great. Others had different items and all were plentiful and good. Service was ok. Would go back if I was in the area!

“Best fried catfish and shrimp”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

This is literally a mom and pop operation. But if you view the guest book in the restaurant, you will see that people come from miles around to savor the tasty fish, shrimp and oysters. The desserts are all made onsite by the proprietors and the food and drink prices are extraordinarily reasonable.

“I've had better, I've had worse!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

I had catfish and french fries. The catfish was ok. The fries were good. Our waiter was very nice. He encouraged us to try fried gator. I don't recommend it, unless you are into chewy. He was very nice to our grandsons.

“Hushpuppies are GREAT”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

But that is not enough to keep me coming back. Vegetables are good, but the variety does not seem large enough. Or maybe it is the variety is lacking. Fish is ok, but nothing special. One friend got a burger and it was "OK " she said, but nothing to write home about. It is run by very nice people, but it is just ok.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Catfish special was breaded strips as described by waitress but there was more batter than fish. For the same kind of money I could have done better at a dozen or more places in Dallas. Wife only ate half her etouffee. Wish we would have settled for hamburgers elsewhere.
