Large portions of shrimp and catfish. Unassuming building attached to fish market. Only negative - they were out of cole slaw so we had to stop elsewhere to pick some up.

It's good takeout food. They usually have fried catfish or walleye deep fried. They also sell locally caught fresh fish at a amazing price. No place to sit and eat. This is not a very safe area. So would be careful in night
