Very casual but nice atmosphere. Seating a bit tight. Service was excellent. Catfish fillets, fried shrimp and fried oysters yummy. Cheese grits and fries very good. Fried scallops breading was soggy and fell off. Portions generous. Though a bit pricey for atmosphere and quality.

We had frogs legs as an appetizer. I'm not sure where they found the frogs but those were the biggest frogs legs I've ever had! Fried oysters for me. Perfection!! This place is a hidden treasure. Well worth a visit!

The fried shrimp was fantastic and the service was great. Will definitely go again. My husband had the fried catfish and enjoyed that as well.

The Catfish House is a staple in Hobe Sound, FL. Food is always consistent. They have more on the menu than just catfish. Good place for dinner. Crowded during season but not during the summer.

I have been going here for years. It is always consistently good and serves the best shrimp around. Service is also fast and friendly. I also like the combo platter and build your own which allows you to select your favorites from the menu.

I've eaten here several times over the year and the best thing about this place is the consistency of great food!! The owners run the bar and kitchen and nothing goes out without them looking at it for quality and freshness. Staff is so friendly...More

Our party of four had dinner at the Catfish House on a Friday night during Lent. We showed up without a reservation, but we're seated in about five minutes even though it looked like they were busy. One in our party had the Catfish Fillets,...More
