I ordered a catfish poorboy, it was fresh and hot. I really enjoyed the fresh fries also. Good place for a quick seafood meal.

This is not a good place the building needs a lot of attention and the last several times my family and I have went the orders was not right and had to return the food several of times. The food is ok good be better but not a clean environment nor a good clean setting to dine in.

We ordered the chicken on a stick dinner and a small cheeseburger. The food was fresh cooked when ordered and was ready quickly.

This little place was really busy on our visit. Great chicken, fries and hush puppies. The chicken bites were tender, juicy and delicious. Staff is friendly and accommodating. It took a few Minutes to get our food and the manager bought us drinks. Southern hospitality!

Well done! For fried seafood, it was magnificent. Their sauces are not generic and everything was cooked perfectly. The seafood platter, oysters, shrimp, fish and craving cakes were all great with seasoned fries and hush puppies. Very good and worth the stop. A bit difficult to find the correct road, take the hotel entrance. Good job though!

I periodically eat at Penn's when I am in Mississippi. It never disappoints. It is one of the few places I will order fried food. The catfish, chicken shrimp are all lightly battered and expertly fried. Portions are always plentiful. My only critique is that the french fries could be more crisp.

The people who help me were great, and the catfish tasted great. The place looks dark, the garbage bags where outside of the store.

We've gone to Penn's a couple of times now and it has been consistently good. The po-boys and the chicken are fabulous. We were amazed that about four hours from the coast the shrimp is still pretty darn good. There are a lot of dishes that we want to try, but this Penn's is a good choice to eat when... More

They are probably most well known for their chicken-on-a-stick, but I mostly go there for their seafood platters. If you like fried seafood, it's one of the better places in town to get some.

Catfish Shrimp Dinner was delicious. Good fries and slaw. Food was good. Needs some work on the floors and décor.
