Everything we tried was very good. Catfish was fresh and crisp, not greasy. Fried green tomatoes and even the burgers are great. Would highly recommend.

Really enjoy the American Fried Catfish! The catfish is always excellent and the service is very friendly. With your meal you always get a pot of bean, onions, hush puppies, and coleslaw. Worth a try!
