I stopped by after looking at the reviews when I was in town on business. I had a simple meal of fried catfish. It was served with a very large bowl of delicious coleslaw and a cup filled with what I think were scallions? I didn't eat any of them but noticed other people were munching away as if eating...

Our neighbors and us decided to go back to Catfish Country since we wanted seafood. Restaurant was crowded but we were seated immediately. Waitress took our drink orders and left us to read the menu and determine what we were going to have. Decided on the cod loins and fries. Also ordered the beer battered onion rings. Fresh coleslaw and... More

The staff are not accurate with pick up orders and call you a liar when you say the order is incomplete. Then in same breath they find the order they did not include and hang up on you and do not pick up their phone again. Do not eat here if you want a correct order amd professional service.

Stopped by for a late lunch (2p) last Sunday, about a 10 minute wait for a table . I ordered the 3 pc fried Cajun catfish (which I was worried may taste fishy but it was not in the least bit), my husband-fried haddock and son-the blackened tilapia. Delicious food, generous portions, and wonderful service by Mary P. I would... More

Of course there is catfish but lots of other fish/seafood choices. Well-portioned meals, friendly and knowledgeable staff, well-priced menu and lots of daily specials. Very interesting appetizer idea - be sure to try it! CLOSED on Mondays!
