The Catfish King is known all over East Texas as the best Catfish chain all across the area and this is one that I find very good.

My family arrived around 12:30pm for lunch on December 5th. There were only 4-5 cars in the parking lot which we didn't expect at that time of the day. The staff was very friendly that took our order but the food was cold/room temperature when brought to our table. It was like it had been sitting under a broken heat... More

Catfish is king here and people fill the tables each evening. Order the catch, and all you can eat of fried catfish filets come to your table before your dish is empty. Sides of French Fries and pickled tomatoes with fried hushpuppies and slaw could fill your tummy too, if you don't save room for the very good filets. This... More

We had eaten at a Catfish King restaurant in north Texas many years before and we were really looking forward to this. We made a special trip just to eat here in our travels. The restaurant was clean. A roof was being installed at the time and it was quite noisy. The manager and staff appeared cordial and helpful. We... More

Sad to say I won't be going to the Catfish King again. It's hard to underwhelm me when it comes to seafood cause it's my fav, but they did just that. It was very bland; next to no seasoning, & the sides were atrocious. On top of that I made it to my room only to find out that my... More

This place is a dump, poor customer service skills, if you go double check your order I was overcharged got my food then had to go back and defend what the drive through menu says because they still got my order wrong, took my whole 30 min lunch break and 2 trips to get it corrected. The catfish was par... More

Was disappointed with this restaurant. The interior was rather on the dark side and the prices are too high for the food quality and quantity. The service and the sweet tea was good.

We always enjoy the catfish at this restaurant. The consistent quality is enough to keep us coming back. They have a nice salad bar and a large variety of other foods as well. We always come for the catfish.

It's a nice down home friendly place...with fresh catfish, taters, and hushpuppies just the way East Texas folk like them. You can sit inside and go through the buffet style set up, or you can drive through....always friendly, efficient.

Thank John T
