We got the smaller seafood platter, and am I glad we did. There was a lot of food. Very good and pretty fast getting served. It was beginning to get busy as we left, because we were early. Would stop again if in the area.

We have never been disappointed. The catfish, chicken livers and crab claws are as good as it gets around here. The service has always been dependable and I like the ice tea.

Food was just not that good and portion size was small for what you paid for! Had seen this place for some time, and after one visit, it will be my last!More

Friendly service and always good food. The menu is expanding with new seafood options. The grilled shrimp and frog legs are very good.

Way over priced for what you get!!! Combination platter and drink were $21 with very small portions. Tasted all alike - grease and more grease. Never again.

Excellent service food was very fresh and hot. We all left satisfied. Only don't like corn in the hush puppies.

We arrived at 11:00 for lunch and, from the looks on their faces, apparently surprised the staff. We were promptly seated in an area that was dark and unappealing. The place hasn't had a makeover in years. We had fried catfish fillets preceded by hush...More

Used to come over from Madison often, but moved to Georgia a year ago where we couldn't find good catfish. We were passing through Athens earlier this week and decided to get our catfish fix. Were not disappointed; the food and service were as excellent...More
