Visited this place for dinner, wasn't impressed in the least. Spent 20.00 and didn't like the food. Waitress staff was nice but fish was not good. Very small portion for the money. Loud taste to catfish. Might have been a bad night??

Catfish Cabin has been my favorite place for a catfish dinner for many years. The catfish is farm raised and fried (my favorite) crispy and golden. The hushpuppies are the best. They have other menu items that my family members really like such as fried chicken livers, fried oysters (fresh) and gumbo in the winter. The ice tea glasses are... More

Today we had lunch at the catfish cabin and it was the best grilled fish I've ever had! It was cooked and spiced to perfection. The hush puppies were fantastic too. The service was accommodating and friendly. We had the feeling "gee I'm glad we stoped bye"

We asked for local fare and this restaurant was recommended. We had the gumbo which was very thick. The catfish filets were tasty. The extras of coleslaw, hush puppies, and fries made it a filling meal.

I had not eaten at this location since 2005 and was amazed at the transformation since then. It was just a good fish place back then but now features astounding fresh fish. Took a long time for food to come to the table after ordering but found out why when it did come. Fish was warm and right out of... More

It is not the famous Catfish Cabin from Memphis Tn. but they do have good food. I got the small combination plate. If you get it you need to get the large for a couple extra dollars you get twice the amount of food. Would have liked to get frog legs but the only offer them on Fridays.

I was greeted as I walked in by a pleasant young lady and quickly seated. I was meeting some friends I haven't seen in years and they were brought to my table by that young lady! The service was very quick and friendly and polite. The catfish with fries, slaw and extra hush puppies are my favorite. I enjoyed every... More

As usual the hush puppies and slaw were a perfect start to a great meal. Shrimp were also good and fries were cooked to order for me (extra crispy).
