Being from the south, I've become a little picky when eating out.. Especially at a place that offers southern vittles. But this place by far exceeded expectations. Food) Catfish, slaw, fried green tomatoes, all good. As was the cheese grits and collard greens. But, it was the hush puppies that stole the show. Really flavorful.. In fact, among the best... More

My wife and I took our Pastor and his wife to dinner for their 30th anniversary. We asked where they'd like to go and Ezell's was their choice. So we drove 100 miles from Albany Georgia to Phenix City to eat supper. Everything was great. Shrimp seasoned perfectly. Chicken tenders grilled to perfection. And zipper peas that were flavored and... More

Stopped by while traveling thru Phenix City one mid Saturday afternoon. My wife and I both had grilled chicken tenders and field peas. Excellent. They serve coleslaw and hush puppies as a free appetizer. Cole slaw was smooth and creamy with just a hint of onion. Hush puppies were among the best I've eaten in a very long time. Others... More

Ezell's in Phenix City has the best catfish, calabash shrimps I've ever eaten. You will definitely love their southern style homemade hush puppies and cokeslaw. You will get full off just the slaw and hush puppies along while waiting on your main dish. Ezell's has the best catfish in the Phenix City and Columbus , Ga area.

My friend received one small whole catfish for almost 10.00. It was very disappointing. We will not go back.

The Cole slaw and hush puppies were excellent. There drinks were big. We had the fried alligator as an appetizer but some of it was burned up. I had the catfish and Shrimp combo. The fish was overly breaded with corn mill and I didn't like the taste. The shrimp was extra small. It was okay but it wasn't the... More

The catfish is good but almost takes a back seat to the hush puppies, slaw and cheese grits. We enjoy Ezell's on a regular basis and it is always the same...Delicious.
