I'm a frequent diner at David Beard's Catfish King. The fish are consistently seasoned well and fried to a just-right-golden-brown. The salad bar is small but has a good variety of veggies and dressings. Whole catfish, fries, and a sweet tea -- can't beat it!

Very reasonable prices. Food was good although it wasn't real hot when it arrived at our table. Our appetizer finally arrived as we were getting ready to leave. We never once were offered a refill on our drinks. A waitress spilled beans on the floor...More

There a reason why they're so slow. Spends place to eat. Fish on scale of 1-10. I give it 4. Sides even less impressive.

A group of us ate there and had a variety of dishes. No one was satisfied. The seafood platter I had consisted of shrimp that were very good, a very very small mediocre tasting stuff crab, greasy/soggy oysters, and mediocre catfish. Fries were pretty good....More

I've eaten here for years. I stopped in today and got a 1/2 pound a-la-cart catfish. It was good. It's definitely farm-raised fish and local. There is no "fishy" taste that can ruin your meal. The prices are reasonable.

I like the fried catfish filet the best. I have only had hot, and crispy ones. All of the add on have also been good. some of the best and plentiful onion rings are to die for. LOL I have also enjoyed the country style...More
