We always get the all you can eat catfish and it never disappoints. It has a family atmosphere and the kids love the food here too.

Whenever I am heading from Jackson MS to Hattiesburg, I stop here and eat. It looks like a giant igloo so you can’t miss it. I always get the AYCE whole fried catfish. The coleslaw and hush puppies are incredible. Everything is always cooked to...More
