Great catfish. I usually get the grilled catfish, but fried catfish is good too. A great choice of home made side dishes are available.

My husband and I just ate lunch here and had one of the best meals ever...poboy fried oyster sandwich and I had the grilled mahi and vegetables! The food was cooked perfectly, we were waited on and served quickly with a sweet smile. We will definitely return.

We were in a party of about 20. Waitress clearly overwhelmed. No help from any other staff. Took order, brought salads, she yelled out dressings at the front of the tables. Forgot my potato, finally got it at the end of the meal. No real butter, sour cream in a tube, no bread, saltines. No water. No busing of dirty... More

We ate dinner here while staying in nearby Waller. It was a bit late when we got there but they made us feel welcome. Wide variety of choices even on the kids menu. My favorite was the fried okra. Would recommend if you are in the area.

The food is good and the service is acceptable - fast. All the seafood is good. Stay away from the hamburger steak. It is a pre-made hamburger patty.

The services was just great with the food being even better! The pork chops were excellent! Others in my party had her steak cooked to perfection and the shrimp and scallops were very good too! Would highly recommend it to anyone!

Best fried fish I've ever had! Always clean and good service. Great gumbo too. Try the stuffed crab, enough for two people

I live in the area and eat here as it is an alternative to the Mexican restaurants in the area. As the title says it is good but not exceptional.

Stopped in for a late lunch on a recommendation from my trip advisor add. The restaurant looks sort of run down, but it is very clean and cute. We all loved our meals. We had shrimp cocktail, Mexican shrimp cocktail, fried shrimp, catfish and frog legs. Everything was so good. We are all planning a trip back by so we... More
