The catfish filets were really good. Liked the okra a lot too. It was crisp, the way it should be. Good fries and slaw as well. 👍

I love being able to order just the amount I want to eat and not feel tempted by the other buffet style locations in town. This place is always clean and the employees are super nice. The food is wonderful too!

You'll not be disappointed by this catfish. I've eaten it all around the US and been disappointed lots of times by small fillets. Murdocks' is one of those places where you will get the best along with a slice of onion. Highly recommend.

Always a good meal and you can`t beat the price. They give large servings that won`t break the bank. Great for lunch or dinner.
