Very loud in the dining area. All the food was good except for the generic french fries. Seemed to be stingy on the coleslaw, had to ask for 4 refills for a group of 4 people. Hushpuppies were small enough & had an excellent taste;...More

Fish is always top notch. Food was very slow coming out of the kitchen which in return made a long wait outside. If they could turn around customers faster by getting food to table quickly this would help out the customer and the restaurant. Great...More

My husband and I drove here from Collins, MS because the catfish is so good here. I'm not a big "whole catfish" fan, but it is absolutely amazing here. The hush puppies are bite size perfection. This is really a great place to dine.

Gee they have been there for a long time. I remember when they built the unusual shaped building they are in but it had to have been 20 years plus
