Great catfish! Comes with all the extras, drink is separate. Prices are reasonable service is good and friendly. Comfortable family friendly atmosphere, be sure to play a game of checkers and get a picture next to the giant rocking chair!

If we are in the mood for catfish, this is the only place we go. The all you can eat catfish comes with biscuits, sweet potatoes or fries and the catfish are fillets, not little cutlets. Always leave with a huge belly. The fig jelly for the biscuits is delicious. Have been here for family nights and large gatherings, they... More

We showed up with a part of 30, then after we were seated, 8 more showed up. It was no problem for the staff to accommodate such a huge party. We were all served terrific food with a smile from the 2 ladies who helped us. We had about 15 kids in our group and the wait staff handled them... More

My boyfriend and I went there today, and it was terrible. Just awful. If you do end up going make sure you say you're a party of 7, otherwise, you won't ever get a seat. I can't imagine what it would be like if you went by yourself. The catfish was not worth the wait and the hushpuppies were straight... More

Pros: catfish meal on Friday was excellent. Waitress was southern sweet, wanted to take her home with me. Everybody knew everybody even if they didn't know you. Friendly & economical. Cons: 45 min wait, no paging, if you don't hear your name when called you lose your table, inadequate wait seating, stay away from" FRIED PICKLES" just a mass of... More

Considering this hometown hotspot is only open four days a week and four hours a day, I was very curious. It's a bit of a drive into the a mix of residences and pastures, but don't despair. The menu is AYCE fried catfish or fried chicken. It comes with choice of potato, fresh slaw (made with mayo and bread/butter pickle... More

I had heard such wonderful things about this restaurant. As a veteran, I have been all over the country. But, when I got to this restaurant I cannot believe the atmosphere. It completely turned my stomach. The fact that over the bathroom door was a picture depicting the most racist thing about an African-American or person of color was egregious.... More

I’m recently moved to the coast so I am trying all of the local places Catfish Charlie was good. You could tell the biscuits, butter, and jam is homemade and yummy. The food was good, but I have had better catfish. The service was average. The real draw back for this restaurant is that you have to wait a long... More

I was here Labor Day weekend 2013. The Catfish was great. But They only open Thursday -Sunday 5pm-8:30pm. Service was a little slow but once the food got on the table the catfish kept coming all you can eat.

It was far enough back from the Gulf to survive "the storm" (Katrina). It's the place you'd want to go if both the catfish catch of the day was fantastic and the farmers' chickens were plentiful--a feast of the top of the season to celebrate the bounty of the Earth. While you wait for a table (which you most likely... More
