Visited here with a group of friends for lunch. Almost everybody order the catfish some getting the filets and others on the bone. The meal includes fries, hush puppies and coleslaw along with three pieces of fish. The beverage options are water, sweet tea, tea or soft drinks. This is simple fare served with pride and there is no reason... More

We picked the Gumlog BBQ and Fish Lodge as it was only 5 minutes away and we had already read some really great reviews of the place. We were all... More

Been around forever but the food is getting smaller and the prices are going up. I don't come here much anymore as there is better and cheaper close by.

We are one of their "regulars" and enjoy eating there and getting takeout. Catfish is always delicious and prepared perfectly.

Our group had reservations on a busy Friday lunch hour so not a long wait for a table. Their menu of BBQ & fish lends to quick service. The beef brisket was delicious and the prices are very reasonable

My lovely Bride and I wanted to have a fish dinner at Gumlog BBQ. I have to admit we were a bit late, however, that does not constitute a reason to be somewhat rude and to be basically thrown out. We had placed a to go order along with our dinner. As we were leaving, they could not find the... More

You're a long way from everything and there are no other restaurant choices for miles. That said, if you like home cooking, this is a great place. I didn't see a smoker so I didn't try the BBQ. The fish was good, though. Service was slow on a busy Friday afternoon, but other than that it was a good stop.
