We are one of their "regulars" and enjoy eating there and getting takeout. Catfish is always delicious and prepared perfectly.

Our group had reservations on a busy Friday lunch hour so not a long wait for a table. Their menu of BBQ & fish lends to quick service. The beef brisket was delicious and the prices are very reasonable

My lovely Bride and I wanted to have a fish dinner at Gumlog BBQ. I have to admit we were a bit late, however, that does not constitute a reason to be somewhat rude and to be basically thrown out. We had placed a to go order along with our dinner. As we were leaving, they could not find the... More

You're a long way from everything and there are no other restaurant choices for miles. That said, if you like home cooking, this is a great place. I didn't see a smoker so I didn't try the BBQ. The fish was good, though. Service was slow on a busy Friday afternoon, but other than that it was a good stop.

We liked this place last year and decided to have dinner here again and the ribs are so good! Fall off the bone tender and flavorful. It's busy on Friday nights and that speaks to how good the food is. Very inviting atmosphere and sense of community in this town. They are very attentive to waiting on the tables and... More

First question is What is up with the brunswick stew? They said that was a favorite dish but honestly looked like my dog vomited or babyhood. I pride myself on knowing bbq but this just was the worst I have ever had in any state. Two people in our party ordered catfish. Those two ended up nearly throwing up immediately... More
