We arrived right as Catfish Charlie's opened. There were already several cars in the parking lot, so a pretty good size crowd was waiting with us. Wow... was I thrilled that this place is run like a well oiled machine! Our order was taken, drinks arrived and very quickly our dinner was delivered. Wonderful food! We would go back every... More

All you can eat terrific catfish, chicken or shrimp all served with a variety of potatoes, green onions, slaw, bread, and other condiments. Ambience is quite nice. Waiting area has some good peanuts in the shell. Very good service. A little pricey.

Tried to convince my boyfriend to go there. When we went we waited for more than an hour to be seated. They aren't hospitable at all. Didn't even refill our drinks. The food isn't that great.

Ok so came here to have some catfish. And it was beyond excellent. The catfish is pulled fresh from a pond on property and to say it was fresh would be an understatement. Big shout out to Tash who went above and beyond to make our visit enjoyable and who was an awesome server. The chicken was awesome as well.... More

We always enjoy our meal here! The catfish is fried just right and the shrimp are a nice size. Lately we've been seated right away and service has been prompt.

I dream of eating at Catfish Charlie's... The hostess is perfect, our waitress was great, (think her name was Danielle). The food, was absolutely perfect. My kids always look forward to feeding the live catfish outside.

Stopped by on a Friday night,seated right away. Country style decor (think cracker barrel). Simple menu, I got the catfish buffet for 15 bucks and was served a generous portion a catfish, fries, & slaw. Hush puppies were meh.... a little out the way, but worth the trip.

We asked for a recommendation on a place to eat that was not a chain at the hotel we were staying at and were given Catfish Cahrlies as the place to go. We found it easily enough and the decor was a hoot . . . . the waitress was super and attended to what we needed while not being... More

Great catfish! Comes with all the extras, drink is separate. Prices are reasonable service is good and friendly. Comfortable family friendly atmosphere, be sure to play a game of checkers and get a picture next to the giant rocking chair!
