If you like delicious Southern fried food this is your place. I always get the River Boat special - fried catfish, slaw, hush puppies, corn bread, fries - all the healthy stuff. They bring the food fast, and keep your drink from running dry. The fried dill pickle chips are delightful. I've eaten there many times and it is consistently... More

Riverboat Special is always our favorite; plenty of fried catfish fillets, hush puppies, coleslaw, cornbread and pickled onions. We enjoy a baked potato with our meal. Drinks are served in a very large glass, which hardly ever needs a refill. They have other seafood choices, but Riverboat Special is the best for the money. They also have a to-go window... More

Stopped in in our way to see the Christmas lights at Noccalula Falls. Our party of 11 was immediately seated, a rarity at any establishment. Our server was super efficient and sweet. As always the cornbread, onions, and slaw brought before our meals was stellar. We ordered popcorn shrimp and catfish. The portions were large and the food was delicious.... More
