Really good! Went on Saturday afternoon about 2:30, place was packed! That's always a good sign, especially for that time of day, you know it must be good. It is in a rougher area, and you could be intimidated, but go during the day with a group if you are hesitant. The walleye, the shrimp were soo good, but we... More

I went on a business lunch and my client recommended Mad Jacks. We both like catfish so we ordered a pound and a half with hush puppies. I travel around the country and try fish everywhere I go, I promise I can't remember eating better deep fried catfish anywhere. I highly recommend Mad Jacks

Food was great. The place is a bit of a drive, but if you like seafood it is worth it. The price of drinks is a little high, but the food prices are well placed. There is a slight smell in the shop, but the fish are everywhere. The place is small and crowded. It was a decent experience overall... More

This tiny dive is half fish market, half restaurant. Order your cooked food at the counter. I like the fried catfish, frog legs and fried oysters. All of the fish is rolled in corn meal, so pick a type that goes well prepared this way. The sides are less impressive. The prices are reasonable I wish they offered metal forks... More

It is a restaurant and fish shop, only place I know where can get tilapia without the bones and shark steaks. They have a daily specials which most plates are enough to satisfy any hunger. Service is what it is, if there for lunch yes it will be packed be so call ahead. The inside is neat see fresh fish,... More
