Good (not great) fried catfish and shrimp. Salad bar is fresh but not much variety. I've eaten here for years, but not overly impressed after the re-open (after a fire). Rooms were partitioned and our table was in a very cramped location. The gumbo is not very good. Weak roux and the rice was crunchy (under cooked). Place is always... More

Food was excellent, and so was the service. They were damaged by a fire in August and completely redid the kitchen. I had the gumbo, fried shrimp and of course the fried catfish. Best in the area!!! Good salad bar too!

After being closed for 6 months due to a fire I was there for lunch today. The fish, salad bar, hush puppies, and ice cream were delicious. Their shrimp and oysters are very good as well. They have lunch specials Tuesdays-Fridays 11-2.

My friends and I meet here once a month. I order the grilled shrimp and they are delicious. The salad bar always has very fresh lettuce and coleslaw along with other vegetables.

Good fried fish and such. Love the hushpuppies with the pickled green tomatoes and slaw. Just a small old restaurant. Nothing fancy at all. Comfortable and relaxed.

If you grew up in Southwest Louisiana or Southeast Texas, the fried seafood is just what you would expect. At this location and all of it's related restaurants (Catfish Hut in Rosepine, and Glenmora, La) the food is prepared the same way. Everything is greaseless, not over battered and a good value for your money. I like the cole slaw... More

Went for lunch - prices comparable to pappadeaux lunch menu but food is far less superior. Food was rather bland, and a bit overpriced, but good. Had blackened catfish with baked potato. Salad bar was good - lots of variety.
