We were in town for a wedding and ate lunch and breakfast here. The catfish sandwich was unparalleled for lunch. The breakfast special was eggs, sausage, grits, gravy and biscuit for $4.99. It was real southern cooking and delicious. We will definitely be back.

I have been coming here for years but it wasn't call Little Libby but Jackson. The food is great I had there simple but good chicken stew with a grill cheese and it was a touch of home. It was just like my wife would have made it. I do a lot of traveling for work and it great when... More

I never go home to Huntsville without a trip to Little Libbys I always get the catfish bones in. The portions are generous and they offer a variety of sides. Only suggestion I have is its hard to get wheelchair into restaurant and the bathroom.

If you are looking for a stroll down memory lane and what breakfast used to be like with grandpa at the local diner, then give Libby's a try. It's that off-the-beaten path kind of place where overalls are still commonplace, local pastors and politicians still meet to discuss the day's affairs, and waitresses still call you sweetheart no matter your...

Food taste as if it was cooked the day before and reheated. Only thing worth eating is chicken stew and grilled cheese, but I can make that at home.

Great food, reasonable prices, friendly and efficient waitresses. You've found the right place. Sundays after church are a little crowded

Friendly staff, great food. Clean and pleasant. Meat and three, free dessert. Great catfish plates and ribs. Cornbread and biscuits are delicious.

You have to search to find this place (it's tucked behind the Arby's on Madison Blvd, or as the old timers call it, "Highway 20"). You will find plenty of locals eating here. Great "meat and 3(vegetables)" choices daily. They always have good Bar-B-Q shredded pork and of course, their namesake Catfish platters. Not fancy, but clean, with friendly service... More

Pretty good Southern cooking. I had the catfish bites. They were flavorful, but weren't the most tender I've ever had, but still good. I had the okra and peas...very good. They threw in a piece of strawberry cake at the end of the meal that I wasn't expecting.

Thank Tom L
