The Cock of the Walk is a Mississippi staple. Good service. Great location. Good fried catfish and great side dishes! A hot spot for the Sunday lunch crowd.

This restaurant has the best and freshest catfish around! The service of the personnel was excellent. Every time I am in Mississippi I visit or place a take-out order for this restaurant because the food is so delicious! They give you more than enough. Kudos!

Same ole same ole. Catfish is good, but better catfish available at a lot of places. The prices have really gone up and the only floor show is the wait staff flipping cornbread. They need to add some new items to the menu. A fresh...More
