We went there for dinner. The service was excellent as was the food. I had 2 Catfish fillets & my wife had 2 whole Catfish. They were large portions and cooked to perfection. If you order tea they also set you a large picture of tea on your table.

David's Catfish has the best Cole slaw in the world! Catfish and popcorn shrimp are great. Prices are reasonable. All food is delicious here.

I could go here and eat nothing but their coleslaw and crackers. Being from this area fish and seafood are my favorite meal. Honestly mullet is my favorite fish and I do wish y'all would serve it too, but I understand catfish is your specialty and it's also out of this world. Hands down Davids is the best !!!

We are from a fish camp area. This was the closest food to what we are use too, that we have encountered. Catfish and all was good. Had seafood platter and fish and shrimp. Baked beans tasted like Bushes BBQ beans. Little pricey for the amount of food given, The wooden chairs are uncomfortable.

Glad to see y'all enjoyed our catfish and shrimp, and were the closest thing to home cooking you found on this trip. Sorry to see you did not like the seats. But, next time you come down from the Carolina's come back and see us. More

Stopped by to see a friend and when dinner talk came around he suggested David's. Was greeted with a smile seated at a nice large table and waitress came immediately to get our during order.

If you like catfish and good iced tea, then this is the place for you! There catfish is fried to perfection! The service, ambiance and menu selection are good. You don't really get what you pay for though unless you order all you can eat catfish.

Ive only visited once (for some reason) but I will be returning. Went over lunch with some of my fellow employees and had the shrimp. The breading was tasty, not too dense but not too light. Overall pleasant experience.

You can't beat David's Catfish. Oh my goodness it's good! Cheese grits and Cole slaw are good. No need to rush. Just enjoy the visit.

We try to go once a week. My Grandson loves the shrimp basket with fries and coleslaw. I love the fried catfish. Cooked perfect every time. Nice family restaurant to go to and learn table manners.

Mrs Eddins thank you 1st for being a loyal regular customer and more importantly thank you for doing your part to pass on the lost art of manners to the younger generation. Family dinners are not a thing of the past at our little restaurant, its why we don't have TV's and blaring music, families should be able to talk... More

Description
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!
