We had a nice lunch of fresh fish. The catfish was really good. Plus, my son thought the shrimp were really tasty. We had a good server, and the restaurant was clean.

Never liked Cat Fish, but this place the fish does not taste like mud. Nice and friendly people. Love it.

This is a favorite for Apopka locals. Friendly staff make you feel like family.
We much prefer the fingerling bone in little catfish to the boneless. Much tastier closer to the bone‼️. If the chef is cutting the tomatoes very thin, these are the best friend green tomatoes anywhere. Last visit they were too thick.
We could make a meal out of the thin crispy horseradish mayo dipped vegetable-like fruit. Grilled grouper was ok, but not fresh. Great tea. Try their pies. I've never had good fresh lightly breaded popcorn shrimp anywhere and my guest said his was not fresh but better than most. Give it a try, especially if catfish are your thing.

A co-worker told us about this restaurant. Our family of six really enjoyed the appetizers, our meals, and the service. It is a nice Southern menu of foods, accommodating for Vegetarians in addition to Meat & Potato eaters. The manager answered our questions, "About the history of the restaurant and ownership." Be advised, it is Closed on Sunday & Monday.

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.
