Great fried shrimp, cheesy grits and hush puppies. We love this place. They also have excellent crab legs.

It's not fancy, but if you going for catfish this is the place. They have boned in or with out. They do have drinks.

We were in Apopka for an annual event. A group of us went to lunch here at our recommendation, based on our visit last year. As much as we loved it last year, this year was a 180. The food was okay, but last year the service was amazing, this year it was mediocre. Our server would disappear for periods... More

We hadn't been to the Catfish Place in a while so while driving through Apopka we decided to stop. We were just in time for the early bird menu so we had the steamed shrimp and the fried clam platter. Everything was fresh and delicious and cooked just right. We shared a clam chowder and it was delicious too. Casual... More

The Catfish Place is locally owned and operated so they take pride in their product and service as it has become a go-to restaurant for the best fried seafood and fish in Central Florida

I only get to this area during Renninger's extravaganza, and probably best I don't live closer....simply the best catfish and hush puppies I have ever had. The staff is always wonderful, cheerful and extremely attentive. This time our server was Ashley and she was simply delightful... You can tell the management not only puts thought and effort into their menu... More

We went out on a Saturday night for dinner. There was a live folk/bluegrass band playing. That added to a wonderful fish meal local to us. We both had the boneless catfish. The meal was generous and the service was very good.

This is a great down home restaurant with well thought out flavors and wonderful friendly service. Though incredibly tempting to leave your diet at the door, you can get by with some non-fried dishes but you have to eat at least one of those hush puppies. Awesome sweet potato succotash and all of their dishes are well conceived and seasoned... More
