Southern paradise. Fried foods and overcooked vegetables. Friendly waitress that talks you out of ordering the farm-raised catfish cooked any other way but fried.

We went here with a large group while staying at a local hotel. Everyone raved about their meals, especially the fried catfish. My husband enjoyed the dozen fresh oysters that he ordered. I had a cheeseburger and in spite of being a mainly fish restaurant, it was very good. Our server was great even though we had a large group... More

Moss Creek was recommended to my wife and I while staying at a local hotel. The server recommended the "big bowl" of Crawfish Jambalaya to me and I got it! It was delicious with the right amount of "heat". The serving was so large I could not finish it. My wife had the "shrimp and grits" and thought it was... More

I usually reserve a five rating for fine dining options, but..... If you are looking for fresh catfish and seafood expertly fried or blackened Moss Creek is an excellent choice. I most recently has the fried catfish and shrimp. The portions were plentiful, very lightly battered and piping hot. I have also had the blackened catfish topped with shrimp that... More

The meal of blackened catfish, shrimp, sweet potatoes and broccoli and cheese. It was excellent. Service is top notch in this family dinner. Glad I decided to stop here.

We are bad about comparing but then again they set themselves up with the thin and crispy catfish that Middendorf's is famous for so here goes. The thin is crispy is good. Not great but good. Clean taste. Some crispy but some thicker and not so crispy. Not much seasoning but overall pretty good. The slaw is tasty. The fries... More

Just visiting area and was sent to the restaurant by locals. Found out the fish is locally grown. Very quant and enjoyable. I had the catfish filet. The batter is light and tasty. My dining partner had the combo of catfish and shrimp. He stated that the shrimp was nice and meaty with good taste. I suggest this restaurant when... More

This was our second visit and we can honestly say "just as good the second time". The catfish reminded us of Middendorf's Seafood Restaurant (near New Orleans). We both recommend the catfish thin. The hush puppies very well done and coleslaw is creamy and tasty. Mmmm. Don't miss this place if your in the area.

Moss Creek has mastered grilled catfish! I have never had anything like this before. Much healthier and much lighter than fried fish. They also have both grilled and fried shrimp as well as other items. When my son has come with me here he has enjoyed the fried shrimp. Their cole slaw is a sweet version and is much better... More

Heading home from Dallas - stopped in for a Mississippi Braves game and decided to eat here after. The food was just average. I have always loved whole fried catfish and pride myself in knowing when it's prepared correctly. Not sure if it is the batter they use or the oil but it was just "ok" nothing I would stop... More
