Went here for a family gathering and our waitress was very efficient in taking care of all of us. I had all you can eat fish ($8.50) and the wife fried 1/2 chicken dinner ($7.95). Both were very good. I'd go back.

Fat Willies is a favorite for fried chicken and whole catfish. And in addition to great food, the staff are friendly and make you feel welcome. Even the owner circulates the restaurant and visits with all.
