We love the #11 on the menu (senior discount for 8 of their most popular dishes). Before your meal comes, you are served cheese dip, hush puppies, green pickle relish and slaw, plus iced tea! Mmmm

I loved this place growing up, but the quality of food has went down significantly since then. Really need to step it up.

The fried cat fish and fried shrimp were great. They also serve excellent slaw and hush puppies that came with my order. They close early during the day and open back up in the evening. My only suggestion is you get there at least a hour before each closing especially if you order all you can eat.

This is a local favorite with typical cornmeal catfish. Fried shrimp is some of the best I have ever had. Being from out of state I didn't quite know what to do with the "cheese" sauce but once I learned its for dipping their hush puppies all was good. Not sure if it is real cheese dip, it looks more...

My husband and I have been to Leon's Catfish twice and it was okay, but not our favorite. We like good fried catfish, and the meal at Leon's was okay but not exceptionally good.

We took some friends of ours to eat. I had a curly hair wrapped around my shrimp. I didn't eat any more. Won't be back. I'm still gagging.

The restaurant isn't much to look at from outside or in but I would return for the catfish! It was light and fresh and just delicious! Kids eat free! (Under 5)

Pine Bluff happened to be stop for the night on vacation, so we were looking for a place to have dinner. Other ratings brought us here. They were fast and friendly and the food was as expected. The place was decorated quaintly, although the overall feel is definitely not what you'd find in a chain restaurant. If you like mom... More

Leon's is a friendly family operated locally owned restaurant. When they're on their game, Leon's is quite good. I down-rated them two stars because I have occasionally received buffet warm fish rather than the hot out of the fryer fish which I expect from a cook to order restaurant. I also enjoy their bbq, but it has twice been largely... More
