Had the Seafood Platter and it was the best I have had in years, highly recommend as prices are moderate. Thei Catfish Platter is as great, had it on my last visit.

The food is exceptionally good The cheese grits are my favorite as well as the seafood platter. The service is just as good as the food, too. I was just surprised at the prices--a bit high for my way of thinking. I'll go back but will skip any appetizers or desserts to save money.

Lunch with some friends. First time there in about 5 years. Don't know what kept me away. Delicious food, good service, old Florida atmosphere. I ordered the grilled grouper, comes with hush puppies, and 1 side. I choose cheese grits but there are many options such as side salad, vegetables, fries, etc. All for just $9, a great deal! The...

I never fry food at home so when we go out I will order it. They use fresh oil and different vats. We sat outside with our dogs on a gorgeous day for a late lunch. Started with fried green tomatoes with a tasty tiger sauce. I had cup of gumbo soup and shrimp po boy and my husband had... More

We've been several times, and as much as I want to love it because it has shown up in Southern Living and other places - it isn't all that. It isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination, nor is it someplace we think of or want to go back on a regular basis. Give it a try and tell... More

It's not fancy, but if you going for catfish this is the place. They have boned in or with out. They do have drinks.

We were in Apopka for an annual event. A group of us went to lunch here at our recommendation, based on our visit last year. As much as we loved it last year, this year was a 180. The food was okay, but last year the service was amazing, this year it was mediocre. Our server would disappear for periods... More

We hadn't been to the Catfish Place in a while so while driving through Apopka we decided to stop. We were just in time for the early bird menu so we had the steamed shrimp and the fried clam platter. Everything was fresh and delicious and cooked just right. We shared a clam chowder and it was delicious too. Casual... More
