The only negative about Brown's is that it has ruined all other catfish at other restaurants. Every time we have ordered somewhere else, we compare it to Browns and nothing measures up. Best catfish and hush puppies we have ever eaten.

We are pleased each time we visit Browns! The catfish and ribs are superb. The staff is friendly and very attentive. Top that awesome buffet off with those delicious hot cinnamon rolls. Our favorite place to eat and well worth the 45 minute drive.
