Have visited this establishment several times over the years! The fried catfish is the best I've ever had and so is the tarter sauce! It's a must do if you are ever in the area! Check the hours of operation since they are only open certain days of the week and times.

The catfish salad is divine and the fried pickles are to die for also. This restaurant has been in Belle Chasse, LA on Hwy. 23 for many years and I never get tired of going there when I have the chance. It is right across the street from the Firehouse4 so you can't miss it. Keep up the good work... More

Great food, service was great. We were seated right away, our waitress was there quick and was great. I will be eating there when I go back again to bow fish with Souther Style Bowfishing.

I love their catfish dinners. Service is always good. This place gets busy at lunch time. Good ice tea too. Parking is tight if your driving anything bigger that a pickup.

We had grilled catfish and shrimp. Very delicious. Their hushpuppies were wonderful. It was a recipe created by the owner. The best food we have had in Louisiana.

The fried catfish was very very good. Large fried fish filets in a delicious batter. The hush pups were very large and moist, not dry like many places. I highly recommend Adams if you like catfish!

My wife and I were having a craving for some fried catfish and we recently moved to Belle Chasse. So what better place to go to than Adam's Catfish House? We walked in and awkwardly stood by the front door waiting to be sat, until someone who was maybe an employee told us to sit where we want. The booth... More

The family owned restaurant has good service, food, and atmosphere. They have the best catfish this side of Middendorf's.

Husband had a hankering for hush-puppies so we stopped in for a bite. Hush puppies were pipping hot, slightly sweet with just the right amount of green onion. Several bottled varieties of hot sauce provided the right spicy bite. Breaded Catfish was hot and not greasy but a little bland, fresh coleslaw was wonderful. Service was friendly and efficient. This... More
