Great food. Quick service. Stopped during lunch, I bought the catfish basket with cheese grits. Other people in my part bought shrimp basket. Both were very good. Each basket was about $8. Service was great.

We have lived in Pace/Milton for a little over 6 months. I'm not a fan of fried food, but I guess you have to be to live here---or at least to dine out locally. I don't like fried anything, but have to admit their fried...More

thank you for the review Marian. We are pleased to see you enjoyed our catfish and shrimp. We do offer our catfish broiled with Cajun or lemon pepper seasoning as a non fried option, and the jumbo shrimp can also be boiled.

i doubt if you'll find fresh lobsters in the Pace/Milton area, just fried fish. Perhaps look in the Pensacola Beach or Destin areas.

We invite you to visit us and enjoy the best Mississippi Catfish and Gulf Seafood found anywhere. David's in Milton is your place for good ole "comfort food." Everything is prepared the old fashioned way...hand battered in a light cornmeal batter for the fish, and light flour batter on the shrimp, oysters and crab claws. Our secret recipes are made from scratch and everything is cooked to your order and always served fresh. We don't have a microwave oven in the building!
