Best greens and cornbread ever; delicious marinated onions; fried pickles are great, and the coldest iced tea on the planet! Now for the fish- - - great!

My family loves catfish. So this was a great go to place for us. Oh, the cornbread and greens are just delicious. A great location for the family to enjoy a Sunday meal, take pictures and just enjoy the sounds of the water.

This is a go to for us at least once a month. No question what you will have as they only serve catfish (and chicken tenders). The greens, slaw and cornbread round out a great meal and I could eat a bucket of their tarter sauce.

We have been eating here off and on for at least 30 years. I am afraid we are going to need to find another fish house. The food and service were average at best. Most concerning to us are the over population of birds---geese, ducks and seagulls with their droppings that the public might possibly be tracking in the place.... More

It did not take long to be seated, however, after being seated we were ignored. Large tables in our section took precedent. I can somewhat understand that, but people seated after us git quicker service than us. It took an hour to get food from a restaurant that serves only two options. When going to check out, I asked to... More

We have been coming here since they opened, probably over 30 years, and it was our children's' favorite when they were growing up. It's nice to see that after all these years it's still true to its original mission, providing fun wholesome family atmosphere with good food. We took our 34 year old son and his girlfriend who visited at... More

It's perfectly fine to have such a simple (small) menu when every single item leaving the kitchen is perfectly executed. This was my first experience with Cock of the Walk and my only disappointment is that we don't have one closer to home! All food is excellent. Servers and hostesses were a delight, and caught very well. Lunch was an... More

By far to us Cock of the Walk has the best catfish that we've eaten. Quality Mississippi farm raised catfish. Add to that the slaw, greens and cornbread and the meal is fantastic. A true southern experience. Be aware that this restaurant serves catfish and chicken only so if you're looking for a steak this is the wrong place. But... More

I was here last week and they do not disappoint. It's a simple menu. Fish or chicken. Get the fish you'll Love the tartar sauce. Get a side of greens or fried pickles. Service is always immaculate and the prices are great if you're on a budget.
