I don't eat fish (I'm allergic) but everyone that I have gone with swears by the fish!! I love the chicken fried steak! The beans are good as well! So if you're looking for some good food. Head over there!!

Our family came here to eat. We ordered 2 kids meal popcorn shrimp. The shrimp was very good. We then ordered the family dinner that serves 4-5. We were able to get half catfish and half chicken. The portions were plentiful, the service was quick and friendly. Highly recommend if you like fried catfish.

I've had quite a couple dishes from here and they've always been good. The all you can eat catfish is awesome and comes with hush puppies, onion slices on ice, green tomatoes, and a couple other items. The hushpuppies are really good and come with butter that makes them extra good! The grilled chicken is fabulous! It's cooked to tenderness... More

We had eaten there several years before and it's still as good as before. Crowded at noon but the service was quick.

First, when I searched TripAdvisor, I think I saw there are two separate listings for this one restaurant, so be aware of that in reading reviews. The fish, about the best catfish you'll find. This location also has a really good price for the 'regular catch' -- where you're getting a good meal of fish, fries, hush puppies, slaw, beans... More

This was a surprise for us. It was recommended by our hotel which was great so we took a chance. The oysters were fried to perfection. The staff was very nice and efficient. It was a little confusing to order and find a sitting which is why it only got 4 stars. The chicken fried steak was huge and very... More

If you like seafood, this is a good place to stop. Their food is always good. You go through the line and order and they bring it too your table. No frills but still a good meal
