Don't travel anywhere near Rogers without a lunch or dinner stop at Catfish Johns! If you've never had Catfish or think you won't like it, just try Catfish Johns...it's a southern tradition. They also serve chicken for the die-hard yankee. The catfish is southern fried, not grilled and I suggest sides of pinto beans, hush puppies and onion rings. The... More

On the way home and saw this place with a full parking lot, so glad we stopped. Lunch special on a Monday, catfish was great, all the sides and nice people working there. Food was fast, hot and with a smile.

We've been coming here since before they moved. The catfish is delicious - crispy, crunchy, perfectly breaded and fried fillets. The beans are delicious too, with a rich, well seasoned broth. And don't miss the green tomato relish.

Not too much of a fish eater so I got chicken also ended up eating all the fish and took the chicken home. All great food but fish is terrific. Cheap for the amount you get. Will go back.

When we want a consistent and predictable fried catfish this is the place to go. My husband always orders the catfish and I order the shrimp. It comes with french fries however I would like to have the option of a baked potato or a salad of mixed greens, not just an iceberg lettuce salad, something a little more on... More

We have eaten here several times since we moved to Bella Vista in June 2015 and have never had a bad meal. The catfish is prepared fresh for each customer and is served hot with french fries, slaw and hush puppies. You can also get baked beans if you want. The portions are large, 5 to 8 catfish fillets, lots... More

This is an informal clean and unpretentious restaurant for local cuisine. Meaning in this case: great catfish! The portions are large or shall I say generous! Be ready to share or take some home! The breaking is thin and the catfish is thick. Love that! You order at a counter but the meal is then brought to you! The service... More

We have eaten at Catfish John's several times when there was it was in Springdale. The food was always good as was the service, we were sadden when it closed. We saw the Rogers locations on a tip to Beaver Lake Dam and decided to stop on the way back for supper. The food is just as good as remembered!... More

I have been craving Catfish and just happened to be passing by Catfish John's. I had the lunch special, which was more than enough, I brought half of it home with me. They definitely know how to cook catfish and hush puppies. The service was excellent also.
