Catfish place has a great atmosphere , lots of antique thing to see there . This is an older southern cooking style restaurant . A lot of the food is fried and they have some old style items that you will not find in the area , like "hush puppies" . One of the things of course you must try... More

I love their fried green tomatoes! Some people that I have went here with do not like them. They have great cheese grits! The sweet tea is wonderful and is not instant. They have great tasting catfish and scallops.

As it's name implies, the catfish is top notch, the hush puppies are unique and all of the menu reflects an attitude that is laid back, eat slowly and enjoy the great food. The restaurant ambiance is soft, with wooden interior... More

No way - too... More

Went for lunch with my wife and we both ordered the lunch combo which included catfish, shrimp, scallops and clams. the meals came with hushpuppies, fries and a side of cold slaw. Unfortunately everything... More

This was my 4th visit. And every time it is just as good. I always get the fingerling catfish. So delicious. Just like my Mom fried when I was young. And the hush puppies are yummy. We had the fried green tomatoes for an appetizer, also tasty. Others in our group had the fried shrimp, steamed shrimp, and boneless catfish.... More

Had the Seafood Platter and it was the best I have had in years, highly recommend as prices are moderate. Thei Catfish Platter is as great, had it on my last visit.

The food is exceptionally good The cheese grits are my favorite as well as the seafood platter. The service is just as good as the food, too. I was just surprised at the prices--a bit high for my way of thinking. I'll go back but will skip any appetizers or desserts to save money.

Lunch with some friends. First time there in about 5 years. Don't know what kept me away. Delicious food, good service, old Florida atmosphere. I ordered the grilled grouper, comes with hush puppies, and 1 side. I choose cheese grits but there are many options such as side salad, vegetables, fries, etc. All for just $9, a great deal! The...
