Stopped here for fish and chicken, and luckily didn't want anything else because chicken and fish are the choices. Service was prompt. Waiter was personable. Food was good. Restaurant was clean. View was nice. An overall good experience.

The food was excellent and more than I could eat. The service was only surpassed by the atmosphere and view of the water. Our waitress was not only efficient but very friendly and talented.

I lived here years ago when this place first opened, and it immediately became my favorite restaurant. Came to visit for the first time in 15+ years, and it's still just as great!!!!

After twelve hours in the car, we stored in Jackson for the evening. Found this place on TA, it sounded interesting, so we checked it out. Glad we did. You have exactly two choices, catfish or chicken. It looked like everyone else was having catfish,...More

We always take the family here and have been doing so for years. There is basically one meal option which is catfish that they specialize in.

I called and asked that question. Sadly with the catfish and chicken being fried there is not a gluten free option unless you want to fill up on the greens and slaw. Which would not be that bad, both are wonderful!
