We had not been here in some time so stopped in again. If you are looking for something fancy, this is not it. It is very casual and laid back and the area we set in was a bit warm with no ceiling fans. They...More

Came here today with my mom for early mother's day. The salad bar was very fresh. Beans and fried okra were good. We both had the fried catfish with baked potato and was great. We'll be back!

Went to Catfish Haven because it was close by. Salad bar was oddly not really fresh. Everything on it tasted exactly the same. The appetizer we ordered never came and since we weren't charged for it and everything else was so bad, we decided not...More

We ate at Catfish Haven a couple of times while visiting Fredericksburg between August and December, 2016. There are many good places in this town to eat but we always try to visit Catfish Haven, if possible, at least once or twice. The food is...More

Salad bar was OK, sorta fresh, nothing amazing. But the main dishes really sucked!! Steak was not eatable at all, fried mushrooms were heavy and greasy, baked potato was super old and tasted moldy or something. Cant believe this place is still in business after...More

Catfish Haven is a catfish joint, but that's not all we are! We offer steaks, grilled fish, salads, burgers and our New Orlean's style Po-Boys. All our entree's come with our 21-item salad bar and our hot veggie bar, which consists of pinto beans, fried okra, and the veggie of the day. SO, if you leave here hungry, it's your own damn fault!
