Good food, featuring Cat Fish, fresh vegetables and a bar for drinks. On the weekends they have a bluegrass band for your entertainment. Bring the kids and have a good time!

Cool restaurant, great menu and friendly staff. Has a country camping/cabin feel. An indoor pond with catfish swimming around. Would recommend if staying in the Opryland area.

The restaurant is chock full of fishing memorabilia and has live fish pond. The ribs were excellent. The grilled shrimp was good. Service was sporadic due to a large party being served It is a good basic southern restaurant.
