Heard about this from some locals and we loved it. Super friendly staff, fabulous catfish and live music!

I am lucky enough to visit this roadside stop quite frequently. The food is always good and the staff very pleasant. My family also enjoys this place. If you are looking for something quick and easy, I highly recommend. Their Friday night fish and ribeye are also very good!

The food is absolutely amazing, and there are really good deals for budget dining. The only issues is that on Friday night, there is loud live music (which most people like) and it can get very crowded, so the food takes a while. But, definitely recommend for food.

Best Ribeye Steak sandwich in town. I have them put onion and cheese on mine, for my twist on a Philly Cheese Steak. Or, a grilled Ham and Cheese with onion, tomato and mayo is amazing. I sometimes order two of each just for me quite often.

I wish I could eat here everyday this rib-eye sandwich is the best thing since sliced bread. my wife loves the catfish and the burgers I can't comment on anything other than the rib-eye sandwich. I ate this the first time I went and I have ate the same this every time since

We eat here often for the catfish. It's never overcooked and always fresh and tasty. You also get a choice of two sides with a 2 or 3 piece or all you can eat. The salad is not "bagged" salad, it's handmade. Come early, it's always packed on Fridays. Catfish is only on the menu on Fridays. Good, average restaurant.... More

I have eaten here a few times when passing through the area. It is a good roadside stop. The food is good country cooking in my opinion. It is worth your time. They call places like this a "little hole in the wall", Stop in, and try it, you will be glad you did

This place is the best food by far from any place in town if looking for a good ole fashion burger. The Farm Buster with Cheese is the best, and the buttered buns just take a little more over the top. You can tell when eating the food from here that the people really want you to enjoy the food....
