We are in the area every year and don't miss out on eating here. It is a small, cafe atmosphere with some of the best catfish around. The portions are large. My family loves the pickled tomatoes. Great service.

The sign on the door said, "The best fish and hush puppies in Arkansas." I was skeptical because my mom said it wasn't that great but my dad insisted it was a great place to go. I loved it. Great fish and they have a...More

Stopped for a bite and wanted a local fare. Wish we would have driven a bit further. Service not friendly. Food not worth the price. French fries not good, hush puppies cold and hard. Fish OK. Really was hoping it would be a place to...More
