We had the catfish dinner and it was pretty good. Fish could have been cooked a few minutes longer but it was still very good.

Stopped in at the original #1 Catfish King (called Catfish Village at Ore City) for an early dinner around 5 PM on Monday, April 24, 2017. Was promptly seated and greeted by a friendly server. I ordered the catfish and shrimp for dinner. The catfish was good though it had a bit of a muddy taste which is sometimes the case when eating catfish. No problem, though I was here last year for lunch, in July, 2016, and there was no issue with the taste. The shrimp with the catfish was a bit of a letdown. Nothing to right home about and seemed what you'd be able to purchase frozen ready to fry at your local grocer. A baked spud in place of the fries would have been a nice option.

The Catfish King is known all over East Texas as the best Catfish chain all across the area and this is one that I find very good.

My family arrived around 12:30pm for lunch on December 5th. There were only 4-5 cars in the parking lot which we didn't expect at that time of the day. The staff was very friendly that took our order but the food was cold/room temperature when brought to our table. It was like it had been sitting under a broken heat lamp because there was not ANY warmth to it. I would not eat there again and would not recommend it either.

Catfish is king here and people fill the tables each evening. Order the catch, and all you can eat of fried catfish filets come to your table before your dish is empty. Sides of French Fries and pickled tomatoes with fried hushpuppies and slaw could fill your tummy too, if you don't save room for the very good filets.
This Catifsh King is in Ore city, Texas, near the Lake o the Pines, and still the bet of the locations. The Longview one is closed on Judson Road. Good place for family reunions and friends. Closed on Sundays. Yes, sad but true. Go and enjoy.
