Get a fish sandwich on white or rye, hush-puppies & a drink. You will be full I promise. Best tartar sauce in town. Plan on eating in your car. Very small inside. Best fish sandwich in the city.

Hours on the door 11am-8pm. Sign says no restroom, better not come if you need to wash your hands or other. $0.37 for drink refills. Fries OK. Fish sandwich is made of finger-like pieces. Akward parking. Bread disintegrates before you finish. Drinks inexcusably small. Expensive for what you get, especially when Mody Dick's is just a mile away...

Whew. $35 four three fish sandwiches and some fries. I live in neighborhood. Ran out at 7:30 on Ash Wednesday to get dinner. I will keep driving. Very pricey for what you get. The food is not bad but just small portions and expensive.

...to eat fried fish once in awhile. Great selection of fried fish from catfish to perch to shrimp, oysters and clams. One of my top-three favorites in Louisville.

My favorite Louisville fish diner (as good as Mike Linnig's but slightly lower prices). Locally owned and personally prepared seafood. Yes, it's all fried. But you gotta live sometime.

Food was good--I really enjoyed my fish sandwich and fries--and the hushpuppies were GREAT! But I had to ration my tea because I was not about to pay for a refill. That is just NOT the area for a restaurant to cut corners--I don't care how small you are!

I have driven past this place many, many times and was somewhat skeptical but when faced with needing to get a quick dinner in this neighborhood AGAIN, we decided to give it a try. The owner was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. The food was great, much better than Kingfish. There are just a few... More

Price was very reasonable and food outstanding. These people know how to fry fish AND shrimp. The hushpuppies were so muchbigger and better than at a fast food chain.
