Well visited by locals, but not impressed by the meal -- average, but for the price reasonable. Wait staff was responsive and friendly.

I like to stop here when in Athens. Good catfish, good prices, good selection on entree size. Catfish is lightly breaded and tasty. I have always been waited on promptly and had friendly, attentative service. Agree with another reviewer that the decor isnt much to look at, but what the heck. I came to eat, not to admire the decor. I always end up with a take-home box - food is plentiful. Hush puppies are good too ! My only complaint is that they have bad, ancient, or barely-working air conditioning which is an issue in the summer. For most of the year its no problem but in the summer they have to run several floor fans to keep it bearable inside. Its a large building inside and maybe the system they have cant keep up ? But they try. It doesnt stop me from coming anyway.

This restaurant has been serving since 1982 and the decor certainly looks 30 years old. If you can look past the mix-match of window treatments and the plastic table cloths to dig into some great catfish, you won't be disappointed!
After a long day of shopping at CANTON FIRST MONDAY MARKET DAYS on Labor Day weekend Sunday, we were hungry! We both selected the "regular" fried catfish platter which was 5 pieces of catfish with fries or baked potatoes, cole slaw, 2 "pups" and this uniquely tasty green tomato relish along with a big ole slice of sweet onion. All this for $7.95! YUMMY!!!
Waitress told us they buy their fresh catfish out of Louisiana.
Lots of seafood items on the menu - even all-you-can-eat shrimp and catfish for $12! The take-out was very busy for a Sunday evening.

We had a meal here while overnighting in Athens as it was the only restaurant we could walk to from our motel. We had the catfish and fries, the fish was battered and tasteless, you could only taste the batter. We asked for our fries crispy and brown but they just came pale and soft as normal, Cheap enough but very disappointing we were the only ones there and the restaurant inside is very run down, we would not go back.
