Best

This place was packed!! They had the best tasting catfish. I tried the spicy fried and it was not greasy Pros: Fresh fish Cons: not enough of them!

Worst

Think deep fried buffet and very large patrons filling their gullets with mediocre food.



Save your money 9/16/2011

Just got back from eating at this place. SAVE YOR MONEY!! I ordered the shrimp cocktail and the three shrimp on were anything but fresh, they only had part of the shell peeled and the veins were still in them. I also had fried shrimp and oysters, the shrimp are bought frozen and all you taste is the breading. Oysters were completely tasteless and dry. Cole slaw had so much vinegar in it we could not stand to eat it. Beans and hush puppies were the only thing which were good and the hush puppies are also bought frozen but were ok. When I went to pay the manager was at the register and I asked her abouth the shrimp cocktail, she told me ""that's how we always serve them, I dont know how you would expect us to get the veins out of the shrimp"". I will save my money and get better seafood at Long John Silver's next time and would advise all of you to do the same. more

Good meal 2/22/2011

The food was good and plentiful, but we have had better fried catfish. I love the family feel of this place. more

Worst Food in Texas 1/13/2008

If you enjoy visiting nursing homes or trailor parks this is the place for you. Everything is fried or comes from a box. The food is dry, overcooked and lacks originality and flavor. I was very dissapointed that I wasted my money on bad food and a bad experience. If you don't feel like throwing up I recomend you avoid this establishment. Pros: Smells like a trailor park Cons: Smells like a trailor park more

It will do 5/30/2007

The food was not just the best seafood I have ever tasted, but it was good. Pros: food is actually good Cons: the price is almost too much more

Pretty good 4/11/2007

I went here one time and the food was pretty good. The shrimp and fish were delicious and their oysters were to die for! Their menu really dosent offer as many things as I had hoped for. The service was lousy, but since it was the only time I have ever gone, I don't know if that's something you always get there or if I just got a ltitle bit of bad luck. The food is a pretty good deal for what you pay, but honestly, I would recomend Cherry Creek over this place any day. Everything there is SUPERB! Pros: oysters, shrimp Cons: limited menu, service more

Catfish Heaven 11/7/2002

Best fish I ever had. Not greasy and very tasty. I also loved the gumbo and the side dishes. I was stuffed and could not attempt the deserts. Pros: filling, cheap more
