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.

I will be the first to say that the fish is great, sides are great, but the real star is the hush puppies. They are to DIE for. Dip them in the white beans and you have experienced heaven!

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!
