I haven’t had catfish like this since they closed their restaurant in Smyrna, Tn. a few years ago. We took a ride a few days ago and drove up to this location. The place looked a lot like the one we had eaten at hundreds...More

The food starts immediately with a crisp batch of fried okra. It is quickly followed with hush puppies, white beans, and Cole slaw. It won't be long til the catfish arrives. I got the Cajun strips. Bottom line: Come hungry Wear stretchy clothes Get ready...More

I guess my expectations were too high for the catfish house in Springfield. I didn't think it was that great. Being from Louisiana the catfish was kind of bland. The side dishes needed a little bit more flavoring. I wasn't really impressed.

Excellent place for dinner. Good food, appears to always be clean. Waiters have always been clean and nice. Good management. Frequent this place often as do most folks in town.

For the cost it's not impressive. Sides are good but you pay for them . Paying for steak but eating Fish. The catfish is average. I found no difference between it and the meal from the gas station.

I have never been a huge catfish fan, but in this part of the country you find yourself with friends or family wanting catfish on a regular basis. If you do, the Catfish House is probably as good as it gets. They offer several types...More

This is a big place. I would think they have wi-fi, but do not know for sure. Give them a call.
