We always take the family here and have been doing so for years. There is basically one meal option which is catfish that they specialize in.

The Cock of the Walk is a Mississippi staple. Good service. Great location. Good fried catfish and great side dishes! A hot spot for the Sunday lunch crowd.

This restaurant has the best and freshest catfish around! The service of the personnel was excellent. Every time I am in Mississippi I visit or place a take-out order for this restaurant because the food is so delicious! They give you more than enough. Kudos!

Looked like it could be a very popular place. Places that serve a very generous quantity of high calorie food seem quite popular here in Mississippi. Had catfish. It was heavily battered, crispy but also oily. French fries were not to my liking, limp, soft...More

Went there again with a group of coworkers after a training class. Food is served homestyle, meaning they bring out large portions of things and you just serve yourself out of the pots. I had the catfish platter, coleslaw, greens, and cornbread. The food was...More

I called and asked that question. Sadly with the catfish and chicken being fried there is not a gluten free option unless you want to fill up on the greens and slaw. Which would not be that bad, both are wonderful!
