I had mouth watering scallops with the best sweet potato fries ever! My friend had delicious catfish and her favourite - biscuit and grits with gravy. Cute souvenirs and T-shirts were available. The thoughtful... More

Captain Dale from the Spirit of the Swamp Air boat tour recommended the Catfish Place. He was not wrong, great deep fried food with excellent service when the place was very busy. Alligator, turtle, catfish, oysters, shrimp and the list goes on. One problem to keep in mind; the servings are big and two of us ordered the sampler platter... More

This is a traditional diner very popular with locals but welcoming to visitors. As its title indicates it specialises in catfish and other local seafood but also has choices of pork, chicken & burgers& salads. All its food is made onsite or freshly cooked to order therefore not really fast food but worth the wait. Whilst most of the dishes... More

After a full morning of fishing with the legendary Capt. Bill Whipple, we asked for a good place to have a fish lunch. He immediately suggested the Catfish House. We were not disappointed. The food was all hand made, delicious and reasonable. Would like to return

Captain Dale with Spirit of the Swamp airboat tours tipped us off to this place when I asked about a good place to try alligator...what a tip! We came for lunch, and our family of four was seated promptly. Lunch portions were large (for both adults and kids), and very reasonably priced. But most importantly, the food was delicious! The...
