Catfish Kitchen is pretty consistently good. I think that their prices are a little on the high side for level of dining experience that it is. This is possibly just me because I’m finding most places to be too expensive and have adjusted the frequency...More

Fried to death...fish and quail...so fried and breaded you can't taste what it is. The coleslaw is good and the hush puppies are the best I've ever had anywhere. Nice service.

Local (not imported from Asia) fresh catfish cooked the way you want it. Served in a friendly atmosphere with excellent service. Bottomless drinks, choice of all you can eat or a generous portion meal. Reasonably priced and have other things to eat beside catfish.

The Catfish Kitchen has been a local favorite for decades. Located not far from the Montgomery Bell State park in the city of Burns. It's close to Dickson and a bit farther drive from Nashville, yet a pretty drive if you come from that distance....More

Sorry, you would have to call them for that information. It tastes like a good hush puppy made up of flour and corn meal combination.
