I tried a new "catfish" place in town and came right back to Wayne's. While I am not a big catfish fan, I do love seafood and the fried shrimp I had today at Wayne's were three times the size and flavor of the other place.

I only had the gumbo for supper and it was delicious. Others in the family had fried catfish and grouper. Great food and very tasty. Family fun for the nearly table who were celebrating a todler's birthday. They were allowed to bring in a birthday cake and the waitress served it.

Love Wayne's! Their wings are relish! I also love their burgers. They are freakin' huge. If you visit this restaurant make sure you go hungry.

We had lunch here - catfish, of course. It was very good, freshly cooked. Also had fried okra, cole slaw, and french fries. Our server was friendly and helpful.

This is a diamond in the rough. I love to eat here and any family that visits always wants to eat at Wayne's. The staff is friendly, the prices are reasonable, the service is good and the food is quite tasty. I love their take out service as well. They serve catfish, burgers, and have a children's menu that is... More

Went with 9 family members and were seated immediately. Good selection of seafood. Had the Fried Catfish basket, 2 pieces of fish and sweet potato fries,and coleslaw. Delicious. Lightly breaded, crispy outside and moist inside. No one had any complaints on their food, quick service and attentive server kept everyone happy. Within minutes the place was packed. Get there early.... More

Seating area is not appealing. There is plenty of parking. Typical fried catfish, cole slaw and other menu items
