This is totally one of my favorite places to get catfish! It is clean, the employees are super nice, and it's the best fish in town! The building is one of those old but still going kind of places, but it is worth the money you pay!

This location came highly recommended by a friend but I was still skeptical as I was traveling with my Girl Scout Troop. We looked at the menu online and decided to try it anyway. THEY DID NOT DISSAPOINT! From the friendly staff to the well seasoned, lightly breaded, moist and delicious catfish, the experience was excellent! There was something on... More

Absolutely love their crispy catfish fillets along with hush puppies and great tomato relish! A must to stop by here for a scrumptious meal when in the area.

You must check out this place! Really good food in large portions. My husband and I shared a catfish dinner and it was more than enough for the two of us. Yummy hush puppies and green tomato relish came with the meal. Much fun fishing memorabilia decorated the place. Bayou music and southern accents were heard. We had peach cobbler... More

Came here because of the reviews and was not disappointed. Exceptional Catfish, great service and fun atmosphere. Loved the 70s-80s music! Only gripe would be that they don't have real butter for the baked potatoes.

This locally owned family diner has it all: great and friendly service (the owner, himself, walks around most days/nights to meet and greet the customers) and excellent fried catfish. The wait staff bends over backwards to make their guests happy. We have never been disappointed by the food or service at Huck's, and we visit this place several times a... More

This is a great place if you love Catfish. I know a lot of people do and this place has Catfish and many other wonderful items on their menu. A lot of people from out of town have gone here. It has a friendly atmosphere. I love to go there when i can.

We had lunch there yesterday after reading great reviews of this restaurant. I ordered the catfish "burned" (their term, not mine) and it was perfectly crunchy and great! Really good catfish is very hard to find, and this was worth the 140 mile round trip drive to try it. My wife ordered her fish "Mississippi style" and she loved hers... More
