Talk about GREAT food, you definitely can't miss going to the Willow Pond - best hush puppies EVER! I even took home a bag of mix and spoke with the owner to get a few tips on preparing them like they do. Catfish was excellent, but the Okra was the best!! Right out of the garden and into the fryer... More

We had planned our trip to be in this area around dinner time. My wife loves catfish so I wanted to surprise here for a nice sit down dinner while traveling rather than the normal fast food when you have been driving 12 - 14 hours for two days in a row. I found reviews on the restaurant and decided... More

Everything began with a BIG bowl of awesome hushpuppies followed by white beans and onions. We tried both the catfish and fried shrimp which were both delicious.

We eat here often, it is always great food. Their hush puppies are the absolute best around! The fish is fantastic and it comes with white beans and slaw and all you can eat hush puppies. The menu is limited if you don't like fish, the have a chicken breast and a pork chop along with your usual sandwiches.

This is a very clean restaurant with extremely friendly employees. If you don't mind "fried everything" it's for you. I had to order a little creatively because I cannot eat fried food. Otherwise, it was very good!

Very good food and excellent service. Food service was fast even on a busy night. The food is always hot, great taste and plenty of it. Serving sizes are beyond the norm. Good family atmosphere at a reasonable price.

This Restaurant is very Southern like and the wait staff was so friendly and cute.! Enjoy the girls accents and so much food that we had to take a doggie bag with us.

We had the catfish which was delicious. The time we visited the restaurant (9:00 PM) was about to close, which they did -- but served us anyway.

Always good food and service. Be careful not to fill up on the hush puppies and white beans. All the fish selections are excellent. Be sure to leave room for the delicious desserts.
