I ordered the 3 pc fried Cajun catfish (which I was worried may taste fishy but it was not in the least bit), my husband-fried haddock and son-the blackened tilapia. Delicious food, generous portions, and wonderful service by Mary P. I would... More

Of course there is catfish but lots of other fish/seafood choices. Well-portioned meals, friendly and knowledgeable staff, well-priced menu and lots of daily specials. Very interesting appetizer idea - be sure to try it! CLOSED on Mondays!

I have celiac disease. We called ahead to make sure they had gluten free options before going off route for lunch. They assured me they had grilled gluten free options. When ordering I questioned my server about gluten free options (as I always do when ordering), and she was unsure so went to check. She came back and said they... More

The service was good, and they were crowded, the food was really good. Nice selection on the menu. It's cool that they bring you cole slaw and green onions in a jar, when they bring your drinks. The cole slaw was good. Prices are reasonable.
