Great salad bar to compliment some great seafood for this area. Sunday country buffet is "killer". Everything tastes so fresh and cooked to perfection. This is definitely the place to go for great value for great food!!!

We've been there a number of times, usually for their Sunday buffet. You can always depend on them having great comfort food. Salad, fried chicken, pork chops, fried okra, mashed potatoes, and many other veggies.

Decided to give this a try for our Sunday dinner. It was packed when we arrived at 1330. Took half hour to get in. Food was hot and good. No fish on the buffet.

At a reasonable price, Sunday (11am-3pm), Catfish Cove offers a tasty all you can eat southern cooking buffet that is both delicious and doesn't bust the budget. The buffet offers four delicious selections of meat (country style steak, fried chicken, stewed chicken and one other...More
