It's so good that you will want to order another one to go.The service is very friendly and the restaurant is very clean but be aware that when I say clean because you get shelled peanuts and you are allowed to throw the hulls on floor.

Typical small town feel with home style cooking. We had the crawfish etoufee and it was very good. The salad bar lacks a little bit to be desired, as in not many choices. It was however fresh.

This place is nothing fancy (you throw your peanut shells on the floor) but the food is great! My husband had never had catfish and does not like to try new things, but he really liked it. My grilled shrimp and catfish were also delicious.

My family loves catfish and I humor them. Well, the next time we are in Kinder I will be suggesting they humor me and eat at Roy's. The catfish was perfect.

Have to eat here, when we are in Kinder. Great food, love the fried catfish. We had a group of eight. The waitress, Lana, was very friendly, attentive, and accomodating. The food was served quickly and it was hot. Will be back!

Many trips to Kinder and this was our first time eating at Roy's. My kid picked it just to throw peanut shells on the floor. Good call kid! I had the grilled catfish with crawfish etouffee over it.

This restaurant was pleasing to the whole family (and we all ordered different foods). I had the fried fish and it was down-home cajun fried fish.

We love Roy's Catfish Hut! If we are passing thru Kinder, LA we try to stop & eat. This is very casual dining. We had the Large Fried Shrimp & the Hamburger Steak with baked potatoes. The food was delicious! The service was very good. We are repeat customers!
