We met family to eat at David's Catfish House in Atmore, AL. I always go for shrimp and grits if it is a menu choice. Hubby ordered gumbo. When our meal arrived, the portion was more than ample. Shrimp stacked on creamy grits with a...More

I have always enjoyed their coleslaw, catfish filets, and hamburgers. This time I ordered the steak and was very pleased with how juicy and tender it was. I am recommending that everyone try David's for steak and you will not be disappointed.
