This place has good fried catfish and amazing sides. The white beans are seasoned perfectly. The huspussies are more like little pieces from a broken funnel cake instead of balls which is fun and they taste great. We have always had great service also.

Brought my neighbors. We had very good service. Pork chops were ok. Baked potato was excellent. There was too much food-had to take some home. Was a lot of room and clean. Price was average.

We have ate here many times and have never been disappointed. Service is great and food is always hot, fresh & plentiful. Highly addictive ocean boneless!! If you’re looking for fresh fish that’s as good as you can get, look no further.

The Catfish House specializes in serving pond raised Catfish whether it be catfish fillets, catfish steaks or catfish fiddlers. We even carry imported catfish also known as basa or swai fish from Asia. We have butterfly shrimp as well and serve chicken tenders and hamburger steaks and hamburgers for our land lovers. Our unique way of doing hush-puppies is of legend status, you will have to try them for yourself to see all the fuss. Our recipe for fish breading is also unique for our area, a little hint of New Orleans in there. Our chicken tenderloins are hand breaded served with choice of sauce. Every entree dinner we serve is always served with all you can eat slaw , white beans and hush-puppies ! You won't be disappointed and you won't go away hungry!
