Dont see the hype about this place. The building itself is pretty cool inside and out. The place is really clean and most of the staff seems nice. Food is served on thick plastic plates with cheap silverware. Kinda reminded me of chow hall items, but without the tray. The food itself is OK. Nothing special, nothing really stands out,... More

I'm not crazy about catfish, so I had grilled chicken tenders. It was great. Everyone who had the catfish liked it. Plenty of hush puppies and slaw and both were good. Service was a little slow. I think our server was a little overworked. We sat in the big room in the back and I would rather sit somewhere else... More

I've eaten a lot of catfish & I've eaten at the Catfish Cabin many times. It is always a solid choice. Slaw, fish, etc. is just right & prob the best hushpuppies I've eaten in a restaurant. Waiters are quick & helpful. It's a good place although a bit difficult to access & exit due to heavy traffic. Price is... More

The hush puppies and slaw are delicious! The catfish and other sides are always yummy. This is a simple, family run place. Nothing is fancy. Nothing is complicated. It's just plain, good food.

The parking lot was full, but we were seated immediately and drink orders taken very quickly. My green beans I chose as a side was cold. I told the waitress who took them back to warm them. They still were barely warm when brought back out, but were edible. The catfish was good.

A group of 14 family members gathered and were accommodated. They do not take reservations but asked that we phone 15 minutes before we were to arrive to allow staff time to arrange tables, which they did. We were seated immediately. Menu selection was varied and food arrived as ordered. Side items of slaw and hushpuppies were already available. We... More

The service is always good. I love the fish and stuffed crab. I have tried other menu items and have never been disappointed. The hushpuppies (and the story behind them on the menu) and slaw are the bomb! It is built like a cabin and rustic...I like it. The hot fudge cake is good. Heard the crab and frog legs... More

Beautiful log cabin full of great staff, excellent food and happy customers. I had the broiled catfish and shrimp. WONDERFUL!! Mary loved her fried catfish. We tried both slaw. I liked the mayo and she liked the vinegar. The non-stop hush-puppies were great and very filling. Hurry in.

Very good portions on the fish plates and very tasty. Family atmosphere. We were here for an early dinner and didn't have to wait to be seated but just a few minutes.
