The girls took K to Eat My Fish in Benton to celebrate her birthday. The facility was recommended by the son in law and we all love catfish or chicken for the grandsons so it was a no brainer. It’s off Military Road but even...More

My first visit here and it will not be my last. Warm welcome and attentive waiters, the food was wonderful, but the floor felt slippy, presumably from the effects of all the cooking?

We absolutely love Eat My Catfish! Reasonable prices, great food, fast service, and they are very friendly. He hires lots of kids in school and teaches them responsibility and manners. It's a great place to patronize!

This is a nice, local, catfish (and some other) food joint. Used to serve up out of a food truck, now expanded. Honestly, I don't much care for the actual physical restaurant. Not exactly fine dining, but that's minor because the food is great. Fresh...More
