The food, service, and atmosphere is all just so,so. The grilled fish and the blackened did not have much taste. Even the cobbler tasted like store bought. Probably would not revisit.

After a long day of moving this hit the spot. We walked in a little less than an hour before closing and were met with nothing but kindness. The food was fresh and delicious. The service was very good, despite it being the end of the night. I cannot wait to go again and try more of the menu.

There was nothing wrong with this place. Everything was clean, food was good, staff friendly but I was expecting more of a local experience. It reminded me of a Famous Dave's. The portions were smaller than I thought they would be as well though not overpriced. I would give it another try if back in the area.

This was our first visit and was pleased. We went during lunch and had the expedited lunch. You place your order and help yourself to all the sides in a buffet type setting. Catfish was good.

Food over fried. Almost burnt shrimp. The sauces, i. e. ran out like coctail sauce and not replaced during our meal. The service definitely not what it use to be. One time someone came to our table. Overall, the flavor and service are only average and not above like when they first opened.

The Senior Menu is a bargain! The food was fresh, nicely cooked, and good service. The wait person was personable and good natured. Comfort food at its best. Only the hush puppies were a little undercooked. But the Jalapeño Tartar sauce was very good!

This is a chain that started with the original restaurant on Ben White Blvd in Austin. That facility was basically a large warehouse with a kitchen and a food line. People there were very friendly and did everything they could to make our time there great. This one, in Georgetown is a NEW purposely built restaurant. The food is good... More

Hey Jeff thanks for taking the time to write a review. It's true that we are the third Catfish Parlour. My dad built the original in 1973 in North Austin that is in it's original building still. My Brother runs that one. The South store (1976) you mentioned was relocated about 100 yards when the highway expanded in 1999 so... More

Several visits to Catfish Parlour have left us full and satisfied each time, and we never have to ask for the complementary seconds on sides. It's hard to pick out a favorite here because everything is good from the salad bar to the seafood (always hot and fresh and never greasy) to the beans and slaw and hush puppies. They... More
