This restaurant came recommended and so glad we went there, food was very good and reasonable, decent view of the river and guide boats. We had the catfish and shrimp and both were good but catfish is the way to go!! Friendly waitress and took good care of us, would go back for sure!!

It was just OK. The catfish was good but nothing special. Wasn't crazy about the beans, hush puppies and fried okra. Food was too greasy for my taste. Waitress was not very friendly.

We are from Louisiana and we know food, so without any hesitation we highly recommend a stop here. The servings were plentiful and the prices very reasonable. Some of the best fried catfish we've ever eaten!! Great job, Jojo's.

We ate at Jojo's for the first time this weekend and absolutely loved it! The catfish was perfect, the sides were delicious, and the hush puppies were out of this world! Add to that the wonderful staff and the location right on the river, and it was an absolutely perfect experience. We'll definitely be back each time we're in Mountain... More

I really enjoyed my visit here. The portions were great, food was good and the service was awesome. We came with a large group and I never had to ask for a drink refill, my waitress filled my glass before it was ever empty, and we had just one waitress for our big group of over 20 and she did...

Nothing to write home about. Very dry tasteless fish. The coleslaw was good. Not sure what all the hype was about this place.

I had the pleasure of staying within walking distance of Jojo's Catfish Wharf for the weekend. I quickly picked up on the crowds of people in the parking lot waiting to get in. Once I rolled the window down, I knew why. The catfish was so tasty and fresh and the hushpuppies can be a meal by themselves. The staff... More

Very nice setting on a beautiful creek. The catfish is excellent and the hush puppies are so good they should be a controlled substance! Don't miss the pickled green tomatoes either. Portions are huge so take a big appetite. This restaurant has a very friendly and efficient staff, making for a very enjoyable experience.

Drove an hour to have a meal with my husband. I informed the waitress that I had a shellfish allergy. Was informed that the fish and shrimp were prepared in the same oil. So I ordered chicken fried steak...out of chicken fried steak. Ordered a hamburger with sweet potatoes fries...fries cooked in same oil as shrimp. Even the fried fruit... More
