Loads of locals eat here. Casual and unpretentious. Food cooked fresh with a variety of fish on the menu. Give it a try.

We like The Catfish Place! Friendly service in a turn of the century railroad depot. Everything on the menu is good, which is the reason they have been in business at this location for almost 35 years.
