Husband and I decided to try this top rated restaurant for my birthday dinner. Google maps directed us there without any problems. Road signs directing us to the restaurant were also reassuring since this place is far off the main roads. We arrived right before sundown, which was a treat watching the sky change over the Red River. I had... More

Catfish dinners are all you can eat & served family style. Sides were pickled green tomatoes, hush puppies & french fries. The star attraction was the catfish. Served hot, crisp and with corn meal breading. Wished we lived nearby as we would be there often,

The catfish is very good, the fries are cut fresh, the coleslaw is great! Over all 9 out of 10, don't forget to take a fried pie home!!

This was my first visit to this hidden place. My family had been here before, so no problem to find it. We came for the catfish and I really liked it! The hushpuppies was also fantastic and not to forget their green pickled tomatoes!! I liked the old house, our service was ok, a little slow, but there was many... More

This place was well worth the drive from our home in Flower Mound. We are catfish lovers and our food was delicious. Not a fancy place, kind of dark and off the beaten path. We met my brother and his wife there, they were on vacation at Lake Murray. We married the same year within a month of each other,... More

I have heard this is the best, so the wife and I decided to give it a try. We both were very disappointed. As mentioned in earlier reviews the service was terribly slow. The fish was only average but nothing to really brag about. I can say the hush puppies were some of the best I've ever had. Price was... More

Took my husband there for a Father's Day meal. Three other patrons in restaurant. Wait staff was unresponsive. This must be a place for locals because we were neither greeted nor seated and expected to know the menu without being given one. Menu is mainly catfish, grilled or fried, hushpuppies, slaw, pickled green tomatoes. They have chicken & shrimp which... More

Great food but you don't have a choice its fish and fries with cole slaw or nothing. The food is excellent but sometimes I might want a baked potato.

If you leave here hungry, it's your own fault. Off the beaten path, this little catfish place has been a must stop every time we cross the Red River. It is set on the hillside overlooking the Red River Valley so you need to get the window seats for the breathtaking views. The Hush Puppy's are the best I have... More

We haven't been to McGehee's since sometime back in the 70s so wanted to try it again & see how it's changed. We were pleasantly surprised as it was just as we remembered. Food & service were very good & we'll be back.

Thank Perry F
