I really can't review on "eating in", but we get the 2 piece catfish dinners "to go" at least twice a month! You get two large filets, a good portion of fries, coleslaw, a dill pickle spear and an onion slice! I have never been disappointed. They package it well, so that it is great when you get it home....

Finchers is known for there fish and I was not disappointed. The fish was fried to perfection and the portion was a nice size. The sides were good as well. Finchers is a dine in restaurant.

I have been to Finchers many times and I have never been disappointed. The food is great. Catfish, pork chops, hamburgers, and chicken fingers are some of my favorites. Don't forget to try the macaroni and cheese! Save room for dessert. Different kinds of cobblers and ice cream are sure to hit the spot. Management is very friendly and the... More

This small "hole in the wall" joint was great. We had the fried green tomatoes as appetizer. Lightly breaded and HOT from the fryer. Great taste.My wife had the catfish nuggets while I had the filets. The waitress was extremely helpful & offered that I could have one filet fried & the other grilled. As I've never had grilled catfish,... More

The food is delicious! Friendly family atmosphere. You can find a smile and know they will take good care of you. Whether you dine-in or carry-out. My husband & I have enjoyed dining here for years.

Me and my mother went here and ordered two sundaes. The sundaes both had rotten bananas, the food isn't even that good... I recommend just going to Jacks next door.

This is a great local spot that is a hole in the wall filled with their regular customers. My favorite is the fried catfish, but they also have a very good chicken club sandwich. Save room for dessert as the hot fudge cake is wonderful, but don't miss the lemon ice box pie, if they have not run out when... More

I come here a few times a week. Didn't expect much from a hole in the wall but boy was I wrong! Taste like good ole fashion Merican cuisine! The catfish was delicious even to this Cajun pallet! And it's cheap!
