Glad to have had the opportunity to visit and eat the fried catfish a week before the closure of this family run business.

If you love catfish then Henderson's is the place. Best in town and plus hushpuppies and best sweet tea. They have steak, chicken, shrimp, plus much more fixed the southern way.

The sad news is that the DOT road expansion project will close them down. The good news is that they are still open and we are able to enjoy great southern cooking. Their hushpuppies are the best I have ever had in my 62 years of experience. Staff are great. It's family run and you feel like family while there.

If you have to have good fried catfish and don't want to drive to Mississippi, check out Henderson's. Served with dill pickle slaw and maybe the best hush puppies I ever tried. Well run family restaurant with local patrons supporting for many years. It's no secret why they come back again and again. I came here on the recommendation of... More

fried fingerling catfish, hush puppies, frozen fried potatoes, and cole slaw chopped so fine they cut out the crunch, but added a dash of pickle relish and sweet tea served in all you can eat portions or two and three pieces of fish per order.sweet tea that will keep you from tasting dessert. this may be the best fish house...

Great country food and wonderful service! Staff is genuine! Catfish and veggies are always a win! Don't be fooled by the building! Family owned and operated for years.

We have been here for fish but decided to stop for Sunday lunch when they have meat and vegetables since we were in the area. We had cube steak and vegetables. You get plenty of food, and the $6.99 included meat and 2 or 3 veggies plus dessert. I do wish they would offer more low-carb choices. The staff is... More

I have eaten here twice! Their specialty is Catfish and you can get it in whole filets (with bones) or finger filets (boneless). Both are delicious. The owner comes around to each table to see how your meal is. Her family has owned the restaurant and been in the same location since 1956.
