Everything was good. If you arrive too close to closing time, they won't let you order the all you can eat catfish. However, the four piece meal is more than enough for a hungry traveler. The ribs, sliced brisket and hot links are tasty, too!

What a comfortable place! Pinto beans like Grandmas. Home style fry perfection. Just good ol' home cooking, with country nostalgia dining, and great country hospitality! Blackberry cobbler was oh my good!

The wife and I had lunch here. She had the catfish, which they are famous for and I had a brisket sandwich, both were very good. Reasonably priced and service was quick. We'll back for sure.

I was coming back from Wyneewood and stopped here. I loved the catfish. Didn't love the hush puppies, coleslaw was ok, beans were good, tartar sauce was ok, and they have a green sauce with a kick that is delicious! I love the atmosphere here...More

Had to cut the catfish with a knife. The coleslaw that had such great reviews was mediocre. Hush puppies were bland and the baked potato was not done. Best things we got were fried pickles and the French fries. Will never go back!
