Enjoyed the food. Catfish was light, hush puppies were first rate. We probably had the worst table in the restaurant just at the top of the stairs. The ceiling and walls need a good cleaning.

Visited on an late Saturday afternoon. Restaurant was very busy. We were promptly seated and almost immediately approached by a waitress. She took our drink order and food order. Drinks were delivered within a minute or two. Food only took about 10 or so minutes. I ordered the small fried catfish plate and Hubby ordered the fried shrimp. Both were... More

My husband and I drove here from Collins, MS because the catfish is so good here. I'm not a big "whole catfish" fan, but it is absolutely amazing here. The hush puppies are bite size perfection. This is really a great place to dine.

Best Catfish anywhere! Fillet or whole, great service and flavor. You will not be disappointed! They also have great boiled shrimp and fried oysters.

Ate here about a year ago and had to come back. It's a simple place, but the catfish is really good. The hushpuppies are good too along with a side of fried dill pickles.

I have traveled across the country and dined at all kinds of establishments, high brow and low. After attending service with my host family, I asked where to go for some good catfish...this was the place they recommended. I was warned the lines would be long and service a little slow, but the food was supposed to be worth it.... More

This is a World renowned catfish house. People come from everywhere to try this great place. It's very rare to get poor service and they are usually very busy. Come early or be prepared to wait. Wait line usually extends to the parking lot. Best all-you-can-eat catfish you can get. Whole and filet catfish are available with a full menue... More
