Love the hush puppies. Had combo platter of catfish and small shrimp. Really liked the shrimp with cocktail sauce. Catfish was a bit salty but ok.

Returning to the airport with plenty of time to spare, I pulled over on the highway and went into a catfish restaurant. Oh my gosh! Like catfish? Like seafood gumbo? GO HERE! What a gem! You'll see.
