Excellent place to eat catfish and other seafood. I do admit that their catfish is so good We have not tried the other menu. I am sure it will just be a matter of time before we do. I love their fries and okra also.

Very clean, friendly staff. Fish is cooked when order. Delicious. Hush puppies were not so good, maybe not fresh cooked as these were not even warm and somewhat tough.
