We drive an hour to eat here because it's just different than anywhere around where we live. This weekend we showed up about 40 minutes before closing. Staff was still pretty friendly even though it was late. The catfish was hot, like it'd just been...More

Spanish moss on trees, tables facing the bayou. Great place for family gathering. Lots of food and the place to be for a good catfish feed.

EXCELLENT FOOD great waitress, everyone was so friendly, well equipped for any size group. Beautiful scene out the window of Caddo Lade, Got to see a lot of water vehicles that added to the fun, beauty and enjoyment of the scenery from the window.

The family had burgers and fried catfish. The food was better than average and tasty. Staying open only until 7pm was inconvenient, but understandable considering the small size of the supporting community. The view of the river/lake (Caddo Lake) is exceptional. Outside seating options were...More

This is a family restaurant right on Caddo Lake. The jalapeño hushpuppies, cole slaw, sweet pickled tomatoes are wonderful. The sweet tea is southern sweet tea, which I love, but some may find it too sweet. I ordered the whole catfish which were a little...More
