Service was friendly, fast and efficient. Pot of beans,cold slaw and hushpuppies were part of the meal and a nice treat. Catfish being the main meal were below average as well as the hushpuppies.. Prices were moderate or above.. Will not make a special effort to return.

I try to eat here at least once a year when I visit Fairfield Glade. I always leave full-to-the-gills and the Import Catfish is absolutely fantastic! BEST Catfish I ever have had. Knockout punch!

An elderly waiter brought us colrslaw,beans,and hush puppies when we arrived even before we placed orders Said "let me know as soon as you want more". No waiting to eat. Then the waitress got our drinks and served us our catfish. I thought my fried import was delicious and I loved the hush puppies. One friend ordered grilled, which had... More

Was traveling between Knoxville and Nashville. Exited and looked on TripAdvisor here. Looks like a hole in wall kind of place but food was excellent. My wife got grilled tilapia and I got Cajun catfish. Both perfect! They also bring you hush puppies, beans and slaw out ahead of the meal which all were good. Don't expect fine dining. But... More

Really awesome catfish, lightly breaded and fried, with slaw, pinto beans, and delicious hush puppies. Add a side of fried green tomatoes for good measure. Bring your appetite, it's hard to stop eating. Goes well with the Calfkiller beer. Good service, friendly people, including the local customers. Worth the stop, just north of I-40.

The Catfish Cabin was recommended to us by the desk clerk at our motel and was very convenient to the interestate and our lodging. Fried catfish with hushpuppies and other southern favorites were included with the meal. Very tasty and prepared fresh. Only negative about the meal was that th potatoes, both baked and sweet were cold in the center.... More

Catfish was ok, tilapia was horrible. If you want fried, good place to go, but if you want healthy, don't go here!
