We went to Grumpys because last year my grandsons loved their catfish. I don’t know what they changed but they are not the same. I had the meatloaf dinner. The meatloaf was barely warm and the green beans were so salty they were horrible. Our...More

I took three co-workers and my daughter there for dinner. It was the first time we had been there. Two of my friends ordered all you can eat fried catfish. The catfish nuggets were very small and the portion size was a palm size. They...More

Grumpys' Smokehouse provides different types of food for every taste for the family. The aromatic smoke as you drive in to park makes the mouth water for the food. Grumpys' also provide outside sitting and permission allow pets to dine with you outside only.

Ordered a Bbq pork sandwich plate to go at the drive thru. When I got home I was shocked to find a miniature bun with maybe 2 tablespoons of meat on it- just slightly larger than a white castle burger. I have never been served...More

Food was amazing, large portions good price. Good prompt service. Entrance from highway was something left to be desired. Had to call to get hours of operation.

Stopped in for lunch. My Bar B Q sandwich was as good as I have eaten. My grandson had the 1/4 Bar B Q chicken which was large and tasty. I see some spotty reviews here, but my visit to this casual restaurant was just...More

As a southern girl at heart, I never like fish most places. I do like Grumpy's though. Best baked beans ever. Hush puppies need some help. Best thing about Grumpies is they aren't just a fish place. Their ribs are fantastic!

Ok bbq. My standard of average is bandanas but this is quality and price. Generally I would either make my own ribs (bare minimum 14 hour job because I dry brine them), go to bandanas on the cheap, or fork over $22 for exceptional ribs....More

This is a barbecue place that has only been in business for about a year. I've seen some reviews elsewhere, specifically on yelp.com. The address says Carterville, but it's actually closer to Herrin, IL./
