Got it from Trip Advisor. When we pulled up we almost drove away. Real local hole-in-the-wall. No indoor seating. Drive through was busy. 3 outside tables. My wife said we had to try it. Probably the best Cajun catfish we have ever had. Everything was fresh and made same day. Fish fish daily. A wonderful, local place that is truly... More

Delicious local food with great service, Willie's is that perfect hole in the wall restaurant. We each ordered the two piece catfish with fries and sweet tea. There wasn't much seating available so we got ours to go. When we got back we opened our food and to our surprise they gave each of us 5 pieces of catfish with... More

I got the little fish sandwich and the slaw. Couldn't finish either one. One order is enough for two. Would be 5 stars but the fish is just a little too salty for me. It's a perfect day in Dalton so eating outside was nice. I'll try a burger next time.

Willies doesn't disappoint whether BBQ, catfish or subs!!! More food than one person can eat!! May seem over priced on first visit, but you will find you get your money's worth and leftovers or can serve 2. You'll be back!

Hamburgers and fish sandwiches are their specialities. The little fish sandwich was only its name. It was not small at all. Delicious. The fillets were bigger than the bun; the same with the burgers. Fries came in one size, extra large. Great place to eat and enjoy fried food.
