This use to be a great catfish place but is is ringing down. Not real clean. Old building with needed maintenance. Cutting corners everywhere including using bottled lemon juice instead of real lemons. Loved this fish over the years but probably will not go back. Grungy.

I try to stop at this place every time I'm in the area. Catfish and coleslaw are to die for. No frills, friendly service with excellent food!

Today was the second time this year, both times I sent the fish back because there was no crust on the fish. The third time I got fish it finallly had crust, and was good. They need to train a cook on how to fry whole fish.

We went to Windy's on July 25 with several corvette people. The service was efficient even with 30 or so people to serve. The catfish is crispy and reasonable at $10.99 for 3 catfish filets, french fries, hush puppies and cole slaw. If you are real nice they will give you a small dish of their sweet pickled tomatoes.

Ok, so I see some harsh reviews on this place. And I can't really argue with some of the complaints, however here's my opinion. If you are looking for an excellent fried catfish dinner this is the place. I have been going to Windy's since I was a little girl in the 8o's and nothing has changed about the place... More

We have been going to Wendy's for 19 years and by far this management is the worst I have ever come across here ar anywhere. The evening Manager was loud, obnovioux and she had everyone in the restaurant talking about her and the way she talked to the wait staff. There were more people there than I have seen a... More

Grandpa, said the chicken fried steak was great! Grandma, loved the chicken strips! However, they have not been out in awhile; very sad-food cold-over priced-food smelled-filthy dive. Waitress tried hard. Embarrassed, we took them there for a birthday. Used to be good. Just awful. Dog behind green truck bit me. Good luck, you will need it.

I love their fish but it needs to be updated. The greasy carpets need to go. Their beer was out dated so it wasn't very good.

Driving north from Sherman, Texas, toward Lake Texoma, you leave the state of Texas and enter Oklahoma and then cross over a long dam into a gas station sized town of Cartwright. There you'll find Windy's Catfish, a homey, nothing-fancy eatery that specializes in catfish. Four of us ate here---two of us had the catfish fingers, one had the catfish... More
