The food is always great here no matter what you order. The catfish is my favorite. The service is also good. Tip weekend evenings are busy. You may have a short wait but worth it.

Went on a busy Thursday lunch time. The owner came over and was wonderful. On hearing I was from UK he offered me lots of tasty local delicacies to try. The Chocolate pudding was to die for. I will return next time im in Austin.

Stopped here on the way to the airport. The fried shrimp was outstanding - perfectly lightly breaded! Tartar sauce was tasty and suited my taste-buds - not sweet like some can be. My husband had the grilled fish tacos and gobbled them up! He also had the gumbo. He thought he cook make just as good; I thought it had... More

My husband and I love the catfish at Cherry Creek Catfish. I'm not a fish eater, but I love their catfish. Our server, Roza, was very friendly, helpful and courteous. She was also very attentive making sure we had what we needed or wanted. We would recommend Cherry Creek Catfish and make sure you ask for Roza. Thanks.

We have frequented this restaurant for years. Really good food. I haven't had anything that I did not like. The fried catfish dinners are huge and probably my favorite. But, I have enjoyed the grilled catfish and gumbo. Good place for family and friends to meet. Good for casual date night also. Reasonably priced.

Week Day, Late Lunch We were seated immediately. Food also arrived quickly. One salad, One catfish plate. The pieces of fish are small. Take that into account when you decide which plate to order. Food was hot. Sides were tasty.

We are talking cat fish. Oh yeah, go here a couple of times a month. The fish is great, the ribs are reportedly good (so says my friend) and you can hurt yourself on the hush puppies and sweet potato fries.

I lived in Memphis for 2 years and this was the "Hands down" the best catfish I've ever had. From the crispness of the batter to the way they sliced the fish. Awesome!! For 9 bucks you get a lot of food. I wasn't really sure what to expect when the beans arrived but they were really really good so... More

We used a buy one get one coupon and both ordered the seafood platter and took home enough for another meal! We loved the gumbo! The catfish, shrimp and oysters are excellent too! Great family style neighborhood restaurant, They even have live music outside on the weekend!
