Great food. Quick service. Stopped during lunch, I bought the catfish basket with cheese grits. Other people in my part bought shrimp basket. Both were very good. Each basket was about $8. Service was great.

i doubt if you'll find fresh lobsters in the Pace/Milton area, just fried fish. Perhaps look in the Pensacola Beach or Destin areas.

We invite you to visit us and enjoy the best Mississippi Catfish and Gulf Seafood found anywhere. David's in Milton is your place for good ole "comfort food." Everything is prepared the old fashioned way...hand battered in a light cornmeal batter for the fish, and light flour batter on the shrimp, oysters and crab claws. Our secret recipes are made from scratch and everything is cooked to your order and always served fresh. We don't have a microwave oven in the building!
