The fish here is fresh tasting and fried just right. Sides could be a little more generous, but taste good.

We arrived within 10 minutes of opening and were fortunate to find two seats! Busy, busy, busy! However, we had great service. Catfish was overcooked :-( but the shrimp was awesome. Granted they were serving a huge crowd, so overall the trip was very nice.
