You get plenty of food for the money, catfish is great and also the shrimp. You must try the onion rings and between the coleslaw, cornbread you will have plenty. We eat there about once or twice a month.

Food and service were excellent! Everything was very good from the appetizers (cold slaw corn bread, and pickled onions) to the fantastic seafood!

This is a 'must-do' restaurant in the Anniston area; tasty fish dishes of every variety. Above the quality of the fish and sides, the staff is very welcoming and the service is impeccable. We visited on a Friday night expecting a long wait, but were...More
