We enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. They have a good menu with a lot of variety. The fried catfish was very good. They also have very good pie.

My husband and I are new to the area and finally made it to Chelle's for steak night. It was amazing! Nice sized steak that was seasoned and cooked to perfection. The Shabam shrimp was delicious and a huge portion as well. The service was great and the atmosphere was charming and relaxing. We loved that they had Christian music... More

My husband and I stopped by a couple of nights ago and ordered a 2 piece catfish dinner each + drink. $30 for the 2 of us. Usually 2 pieces of catfish fillet are plenty + 2 sides that come with the meal. When we got our meal it looked like they had cut one fillet in half and that... More

We stopped by here the other day for lunch. Been telling ourselves we wanted to give them a "try". Most impressive was the lunch special... For $6.95 there was a real value for your money spent. Not huge portions but definitely enough to pull out the wrinkles! Very good pork chops and the side salad was surprisingly good too. We... More

If you are hungry and just need a place to eat, then by all means visit Chelle's. If you are looking for excellent food variety with great taste then don't go to Chelle's. I was born and raised in south Arkansas. I know what good catfish and frog legs taste like. I did not get them at Chelle's. Basically, the... More

They give you free fried okra and bread with your meal. There is free soft serve as well. I have enjoyed what I've gotten, and I have a friend who swears by the shrimp and grits, which I will try some time I am in the mood to sample their more expensive offerings. Prices are good, starting at around $7,... More

I recently visited Chelle's for dinner on a visit to Camden. I had the catfish and froglegs. There was absolutely NO taste. I requested the grilled vegetables and they were drenched in oils and were fried not grilled. Don't waste your time or money. Too bad... when they had the buffet, they were so much better and the food and... More

All in all... The re vamp is good. We were the only ones in the place under 70. Food was good. People are nice. Just nothing that I "had to have". Can't even remember what I had....
