We absolutely love Eat My Catfish! Reasonable prices, great food, fast service, and they are very friendly. He hires lots of kids in school and teaches them responsibility and manners. It's a great place to patronize!

This is a nice, local, catfish (and some other) food joint. Used to serve up out of a food truck, now expanded. Honestly, I don't much care for the actual physical restaurant. Not exactly fine dining, but that's minor because the food is great. Fresh...More

Visited on trip home to Texas. Arkansas is known for their farm fresh catfish and the catfish at Eat My Catfish is a great example. Catfish had a fresh taste (not a strong flavor) with a great lite batter. The shrimp were fresh tasting and...More

We are from California visiting family and our family took us here to eat - it was well worth the visit! The crawfish were great ( try the spicy! ) and so was the catfish. We will be back next time we visit!

Fish is fantastic! Shrimp is seasoned to perfection! I wasn't crazy about the fries, but the hush puppies were on point. I can't wait to try the crab legs!

Daughter and son-in-law took us here, we didn't know what to expect but were we surprised. The food was excellent, the service was awesome and I loved the atmosphere. I couldn't eat it all, no one went away hungry.
