After waiting 40 minutes in line for six orders to be completed ahead of us, the food was cold and the french fries soggy and inedible. We have eaten here many times but it appears to be under new management

Penn's catfish and chicken are famous in this part of Mississippi. This holds true for the Reservoir location. Besides great fish and chicken, the Shrimp and side dishes put competitors to shame. Great service and reasonable prices keep me coming back.

When I visit my family in Brandon, I always ask to go to Penn's. I can't find a place in North Carolina that fries catfish with just corn meal. I love the catfish and fried pickles. Generally we get the family pack. It is also great the second day. Wish they would expand to the Carolinas.

Got the combo-- fish and shrimp. There were 3 fried shrimp, I was expecting more. All foods were overly greasy. The slaw was very good.

In the past year, I have only eaten at this restaurant in the drive thru. The food has always been to my satisfaction, but I prefer the dine in experience when eat fried foods.
