The people who help me were great, and the catfish tasted great. The place looks dark, the garbage bags where outside of the store.

This place was recommended by our hotel. It was very good and ladies very friendly. It is small restaurant attached to gas station. Very clean and food was great.

Loved it. Not busy on a Monday night. Catfish was excellent. Comes with fries, cole slaw, HUGE hushpuppies. Will gladly return next time I'm in the area.
