This place is coasting down on a good reputation but needs some improvements and updates. The potholes in the road at the entrance say it all. Management is not paying attention to what is really going on. Take a trip from the lobby to the...More

This is a fine Southern fish joint. The breaded catfish was great. The sides were good. Hushpuppies were perfect. No alcohol served. Waiter was very friendly and service was prompt.

We had excellent service but the food was average. My catfish fillets were overlooked and my nephews shrimp was under cooked. Slaw and hush puppies were pretty good

Dont see the hype about this place. The building itself is pretty cool inside and out. The place is really clean and most of the staff seems nice. Food is served on thick plastic plates with cheap silverware. Kinda reminded me of chow hall items,...More
