Our party of four had dinner at the Catfish House on a Friday night during Lent. We showed up without a reservation, but we're seated in about five minutes even though it looked like they were busy. One in our party had the Catfish Fillets, another had broiled Catfish, and two of us had Fried Shrimp. Hush puppies were brought... More

Really good, fresh food. Excellent service (we had Emily...attentive, kind, cheerful, patient). Our friend is a vegetarian and there were plenty options for him to choose from. Wonderful, homemade cocktail and tartar sauce in bottles on the table. Love this place!

This is my favorite place for seafood and chicken ,fried. Over all the food is very good and the people are very friendly Service is excellent. Not a fancy place but I've been going there for many years. Family owned and operated. Only open for dinner and closed on Mondays.

Catfish fillets and whole fried catfish. Crab cakes and fried oysters. Very fresh and nothing overlooked. Flounder and mahi and tuna. If you can't find something you like, you're way too picky.

Tried it first in December then again in January. Each time the fish and shrimp were fresh and tasty. Cole slaw was fresh and crunchy too! You get full on the meal and it is a good value for the money. Staff is very friendly, relaxed casual atmosphere...we will continue to eat there when in the area.

I grew up in Florida, and this place really reminds me of my childhood so I like it more because of that... You have to know what to pick from as some of the dishes are just "okay", but some of them are really quite good. However, the sides are generally VERY LAME... BUT, maybe that's they way they did...

Went with Family from Ireland. Service was excellent and Food delicious. We started with fried green tomatoes and fried Gator. Really good. We all had The Catfish. Very enjoyable and reasonably priced. I will definitely be back.

This place is authentic Florida. It it one of the oldest restaurants in the area. The food is simple and good. I especially enjoy the fried catfish and key lime pie. We go here every year we come to Florida; no visit feels complete without it!

It's funky, usually crowded, a tad warm, but a big step back in time. We love the blackend catfish, hush puppies and cheese grits, and service has always been great and friendly. A must do in Hobe Sound.
