We come here every time we're in the area: husband loves the gator bites, and I adore the fried catfish. It's seriously a master class in how to fry fish, shrimp, and salmon. It's also about 2/3 the price of what they could charge for...More

The Catfish House is a staple in Hobe Sound, FL. Food is always consistent. They have more on the menu than just catfish. Good place for dinner. Crowded during season but not during the summer.

I have been going here for years. It is always consistently good and serves the best shrimp around. Service is also fast and friendly. I also like the combo platter and build your own which allows you to select your favorites from the menu.

Really good, fresh food. Excellent service (we had Emily...attentive, kind, cheerful, patient). Our friend is a vegetarian and there were plenty options for him to choose from. Wonderful, homemade cocktail and tartar sauce in bottles on the table. Love this place!

Catfish fillets and whole fried catfish. Crab cakes and fried oysters. Very fresh and nothing overlooked. Flounder and mahi and tuna. If you can't find something you like, you're way too picky.
