This is a great down home restaurant with well thought out flavors and wonderful friendly service. Though incredibly tempting to leave your diet at the door, you can get by with some non-fried dishes but you have to eat at least one of those hush puppies. Awesome sweet potato succotash and all of their dishes are well conceived and seasoned... More

We were fortunate to find this place when we visited parks in the area. Catfish, fries and hush puppies were outstanding, and the employees very friendly and helpful. I plan to save room for key lime pie next time.

This is one of the most visited restaurants in Apopka. The food is great and prices are reasonable. I go because it is nearby and like the way it is "run".

We stopped here to eat lunch after a trip to the nearby springs. We were very happy with our meal choices, the prices, and the atmosphere. The menu included catfish, as well as other local seafood.

Want a taste of yesterday? Visit Catfish Place and order the fingerling catfish. There was a time when commercial river fishermen caught these guys by the bucketful in hoop nets. Then they made their way to roadhouses where hardcore catfish fans had at 'em. What are they? They're young-of-the-year cats served whole and bone-in for full flavor. By using the... More

Small but big in taste, excellent customer service. Gator meat is great. Parking is small but easy to get into and out. Always busy because folks enjoy coming back over and over again. Check out their House Special, you'll love it. Located in Apopka, years of excellent service, I approve this message. Drphilgood apopka.

The catfish, whole or filleted is the cleanest flavor catfish around. get the hash browns extra crispy with onions and cheese. The cole slaw is a "must" add on
