We try to eat there Everytime we come to Anniston Al. The river boat special is so much fish. We get the whole cat fish. The greens, cole slaw and cornbread is fabulous.

Delicious fork tender fried catfish platter. You get a small pone of cornbread to table share, as well as coleslaw and pickled onions. My only wish is that they had sweet potato fries as a potato option.

If you like delicious Southern fried food this is your place. I always get the River Boat special - fried catfish, slaw, hush puppies, corn bread, fries - all the healthy stuff. They bring the food fast, and keep your drink from running dry. The fried dill pickle chips are delightful. I've eaten there many times and it is consistently... More
