We stopped in here yesterday for some old fashion southern fried catfish. It came with french fries,hush puppies and we ordered the fried okra and cole slaw as sides. The meal came with two slices of plain white loaf bread which I thought was odd, why not rolls or biscuits or corn bread? This is what I call a "hole... More

A hidden gem! Delicious, moist chunks of very lightly fried fish, that will make you beg for seconds, even if you don't like fried fish. The entrance and the place is misleading: is a dark, hot (no air), small hole in the wall, with 1 long table. Frequented and run mostly by the local wise African American community, who prefer...

Ample portion of Flounder with seem Cole slaw and fries. Fish was great. Liked the Cole slaw too. Hush puppies could've been cooked a little longer but that didn't detract. All in all a very nice meal with a new friend. Lots of laughter and good vibes in the place added to the experience.

Just a little restaurant, very simple decor, paper plates, nice people, excellent sea food especially the shrimp and cat fish. We'll go back when we pass that way which is often in the summer; would recommend to anyone who loves good sea food and who is not too concerned about the the decor. Good french fries, great hush puppies, not... More

After stopping by the Zora Neale Hurston Museum, my friend MJ and I had lunch at Gordon's Be-Back Fish Fry. Thanks to a Trip Advisor's review. It is a short walk to the end of the small Town. It is the type of place where "everyone knows your name". It felt like home. Rocko, our server and gracious host, greeted... More

We visited this place after a funeral ( of all things) and boy O boy!! They serve the absolute best Friday fish and desserts than you will find anyplace! I didn't even like Key Lime pie but they made me a believer! We drove all the way from Tennessee, and it was the highlight of an otherwise not so happy... More

I had to stop in when I was in the area because of all the great reviews... I may not be back... The basa fish was not bad, however everything else was... we ate in and the condiments at the tables were caked with dried food, the slaw was frozen... yes, frozen! We got a very small serving of tartar.... More

Food was okay nothing really special but very affordable and everyone there was so friendly and nice. I haven't tried the bbq yet but I would definitely stop in to try that.

Go here. You won't regret it. The catfish and shrimp are out of control. My only regret is that I didn't have enough room to also try the chicken wings.
