The food here is aweful. The fried chicken was semi warm and the fried catfish tasted like mud. The baked potato tasted like it had been warmed up from the day before. The salad bar left much to be desired. There was only two choices of salad dressings....so thick they laid on top of my salad. No bread, no offers... More

This is one of the very best fish houses in Southeast MO. They have a wonderful buffet and I love their strawberry shortcake. It is country sides and they are all good.

We went here last night and it was not good. The fish was okay everything was below average. I had a piece of strawberry pie that left a foul taste in my mouth. The help was not at all thrill or even happy to have customers

I have eaten here twice the first time I would say it was good to fair this last time was poor I ordered fish and chips while I prefer Cod, Catfish is usually not bad, this fish tasted like mud! I highly doubt this was farm raised Cat Fish if so it is very low quality

Lunch at Fiddlers is always a joy. The food is all good, and plenty to pick from. Like down home cooking but you don't have to cook. The service is great too!

We stopped because of the ratings on TripAdvisor and were pleasantly surprised. We had the buffet and it was was very good. There was catfish, fried chicken, chicken &dumplings, salad bar, etc. we had only the catfish from the buffet, it was fresh out of the kitchen, and it was very good. A lot of people took chicken, we might... More

While travelling through we asked a local where to find some good food and they recommended this place to us. Great choice! The food was very good, with the cat fash being the star of the dinner. Only complaint I would have is the lack of attentiveness from the servers.

We just had lunch here the catfish was delicious and the people were friendly. We ordered off the menu the three piece with chips. It was all good even the coleslaw and I don't usually like coleslaw. The buffet looked good but we wanted it hot right out of the kitchen. We will stop again our next time through town.

Thank Dawn G
