I am not a fish eater but I went with a friend who is. I had the chicken sandwich. It was on a hoagie bun which made it a very large sandwich-more than I could eat. Tasted good but was a little disappointed in the...More

This was my first visit to David's in about six years. I'd remembered it being good in a generic sort of way, but this visit was much better than I remembered. Although it's a 15-20 minute ride, I'd recommend getting off I-10 to eat there.

Description
We invite you to visit us and enjoy the best Mississippi Catfish and Gulf Seafood found anywhere. David's in Milton is your place for good ole "comfort food." Everything is prepared the old fashioned way...hand battered in a light cornmeal batter for the fish, and light flour batter on the shrimp, oysters and crab claws. Our secret recipes are made from scratch and everything is cooked to your order and always served fresh. We don't have a microwave oven in the building!
