Catfish Dewey's is your neighbor hood restaurant that makes you feel at home. As soon as you enter the front door, the staff is accommodating and friendly. Always have been seated immediately, even when they appear to be packed to the walls. The staff is right there to help you with any questions and take your drink order. The food... More

Omg yum! I had fried oysters that were cooked perfectly! The crab legs were amazing. I am such a seafood fanatic and this meal seriously couldn't be better. Our server was fast & awesome! If we lived here, this would be our regular place for sure. Highly recommend. I'm impressed.

My group of coworkers, (8 this time), came here for our weekly lunch gathering, and we all enjoyed our experience. The service was friendly and on-spot. The food was fresh and good. We had fried catfish, fried shrimp, lobster bisque and hush puppies, and there were no complaints. It's not one of the less-expensive spots that we go to, but... More

I like their food very much, but my friends are uneasy about the neighborhood demographics. Their men's room is also odiferous (urine) Good daily all you can eat deals.

Went for lunch. Don't let the outside deter you. The food is very good and the service is fast and friendly. The portions are large. I had a small platter and could not finish it all.

We enjoyed a delicious seafood dinner here last night. The place is definitely popular with the locals as the parking situation showed (but the parking attendant found parking for everyone it seemed). Immediately on entering there was an odd smell but we stopped noticing it after about 2 minutes so no big deal (we were forewarned of this by friends... More

After reading several reviews we decided upon Catfish Deweys for some seafood. They had an all you can eat option for catfish, snowcrab legs and stone crab claws; however, $54+ was out of my price range.So, we settled on the Sea Scallops and Seafood Platter. I chose the blackened sea scallops and they were delicious and perfectly seasoned. There were... More
