We visited this location years ago and weren't impressed. We decided to try them again. I'm so glad we decided to try them again. We got there as the doors opened at 11am. The catfish was hot fresh and well seasoned. The hush puppies were really good too. The sweet tea was perfect Southern style extra sweet. Everything was GREAT!!!

Souls Fish is great. Excellent southern styled seafood and sides. This is a great place for lunch. Catfish, tilapia, crawfish, tacos and po boys. You can't go wrong.

Dropped in while staying nearby for a meal after a long days drive. Service was fast and food was fresh. As the name suggests, fish is the theme of the day and they don't disappoint. Treat yourself while in Cooper Young, Memphis.

My husband put me unto this restaurant and the first few times we went together it was great, but I've noticed the last 3 times we went how sloppy they have gotten. We drive a considerate distance to come eat here and for food to be left out and order wrong gets old sooner or later. If you can make... More

We went based on good reviews on Trip Advisor, and we weren't disappointed! Sometimes I find fried catfish to be too salty, but the catfish here was perfect. The shrimp were amazing too. Highly recommend.
