Went for lunch - ordered the small catfish dinner. Catfish was crispy and hot, very well seasoned. Baked potato was great and had plenty of toppings provided. Hush puppy and relish tray was good as well.

First of all the staff were courteous and nice. However, the food was okay but steep. I am not too sure if I will visit again.
