We had a party of 4 and 3 of us ordered the catfish dinners, VERY GOOD- 4th person ordered the crab cakes, they were very spicy and lots... More

This restaurant is an obvious favorite of the local population. Great food delivered with outstanding service. Priced right which added to the delightful meal.

Went on a whim on a Friday night. Nice place, busy. Had great vinegar slaw and a Ribeye that was pretty tasty. Wife ordered Crab Cakes that were deep fried and not good at all. They were gracious and took it off the bill and gave her a free dessert. Little on the pricey side.

Last night was my fourth trip to Stookey's. It was just as good as the other 3. The service is always excellent and the food is great. The menu has a nice selection. I am not a big fan of whole catfish but had it the last time we were here and it was better than I expected. Last night... More

My wife and I ordered the prime rib, which wasn't inexpensive and was very disappointed. I have been going to Stookey's for several years and have always been impressed with all of their food, however this was not the case. The quality of the prime rib was sub-par and had very little to no seasoned taste. Stick with the onion... More

Just don't get the hype...The food is average and over priced. Don't offer catfish fillet "and the onion rings that are so awesome" can be found anywhere, the overpriced steaks are thin, dry and just all around not worth the $. The owner is rude & disrespectful to the staff in front of customers. Wouldn't recommend. Drive to a real... More

It's like going back in time...Stookey's serves food from the old days and it's absolutely DELICIOUS!! The Catfish is the best ever and the steaks are good too. The onion rings are also to die for. And on top of the great food everyone who works there is incredibly efficient and nice. I'll be back!!

Stopped by on a Saturday night. We could not believe the crowd. Clearly a very popular restaurant. We started with onion rings that were absolutely the best we have ever had. Vinegar soaked cole slaw was very good. I got the prime ribeye and it was quite tasty. Cat fish was flakey white and very tasty. Did not go for... More

We ate in the bar area and ordered the onion rings. Dynamite but a very large portion. A half order would of been fine. My sister ordered the filet mignon for $22.99 and I had the 3 piece catfish dinner for $16.99. The blue cheese dressing was home made and delicious, My baked potato was a bit underdone but I'm...
