We have never been disappointed. The catfish, chicken livers and crab claws are as good as it gets around here. The service has always been dependable and I like the ice tea.

Food was just not that good and portion size was small for what you paid for! Had seen this place for some time, and after one visit, it will be my last!

Good catfish is becoming more difficult to find in Alabama. Catfish Cabin is a place to get good catfish. Fried or blackened, it’s moist and tender and flavorful. The hush puppies are cooked perfectly and have a tough of whole kernel corn added for a surprise sweetness. Slaw is also a winner.
This is worth your stop.

Friendly service and always good food. The menu is expanding with new seafood options. The grilled shrimp and frog legs are very good.

I was in the Athens restaurant today at 3pm. We was seated right away and given a menu as we was seated. At 3:15 pm we was still setting there, no one came and took our drink order or ask if we was ready to order. Three different waitress walked by us on different occasions asking other diners setting all around us if they needed anything like refills and other things. This was my first time in your restaurant and was looking forward to trying it out. At 3:15pm I got up and walked out. I will never be back to your establishment and plan on telling everyone I know about my experience there. No stars given for no service at all.

Hi Darryl, thank you so much for taking the time to give us some feedback on your recent visit with us. Every one of our staff members are trained to be quick, efficient, professional and friendly, so it's disheartening to know this was not how it came across to you. Customer service that is not provided to its full potential is unacceptable and will be addressed immediately! I would like to assure you that this is certainly an isolated occurrence, and not a representation of how we normally operate as a business. We hope that you change your mind about returning, we would love to have the opportunity to show you what we're really capable of.
