Took my sons to Cock of the Walk for lunch and was pleased with the service, the atmosphere and the price. As usual, the catfish was excellent and the greens and Cole Slaw were really good as well. Always one of our favorite places to...More

Serving Mississippi Catfish - It is the best. Service is ALWAYS very good and you are given more food than most could eat. They also have a lunch menu which includes your choice of several vegetables including my favorite fried corn on the cob
