After seeing this restaurant featured on tv, we had to try it for ourselves. After leaving Hurricane Harbor we headed south for dinner. We went kind of early for dinner so there was no wait at all. The staff was very, very friendly. My son is 9 and was walking around taking pictures until the dinner crowd started showing up. The food was very tasty and had big portions. We did not leave hungry! Although we didnt experience anything paranormal it was still a wonderful, different, fulfilling restaurant!

my wife and i had dinner with another couple on saturday evening. we could not have gotten better service. the atmosphere and staff were great. now the food, i had the fisherman platter, for the price i think this was the best meal on the menu, i do not think anything was prevously frozen, large shrimp, scallops cooked to perfection and the catfish was great.
i read the previous negative reviews and cannot believe them.
guess they were having a bad day. anyway i will be returning.

Located on small Water Street in a residential area of this modest, but very historic, old city South of Dallas is this charming resturant in an old home, with the certified presence of at least three ghostly personages. Great food fried, baked, or grilled catfish with southern style sides, and other offering. Reasonable prices and superior service. Handicap access if you park in the rear lot behind the restaurant. Warning - if you do not want a long wait for a table get there EARLY as they are very popular. Also, parking is quite limited and mostly on a neighborhood street. We have been there many times over the past years (including before their fire and rebuild) and have never been disappointed. Our most recent visit was yesterday and they remain excellent in every respect. Haven't personally seen any of the resident ghosts - yet!

Had to see and experience this place while visiting Dallas. As seen on My Ghost Story, it promises a haunting experience. I was disappointed not to have had anything paranormal happen, even in the infamous rest room. Wait was long, about 45 mins but it was pleasant Staff was mixed. Some friendly, some not. Food was mediocre except for the fried pickles, which were amazing. All in all worth a trip just for fun!

Great atmosphere and awesome staff. The food is down home and has great flavor. The quality and service are there. Go get some fish.
