Reviewed 17 October 2013

This is a great local Catfish place. Food is always good and so is the service. Definately a place you want to visit. We have eaten there many times and never leave disappointed.

“Best catfish ever!”
Reviewed 18 June 2013 via mobile

There's nothing but greatness here. Personalized service, guidance on cooking menu items at home, and the best food ever. Brought back some of the sweeter memories I had of growing up in the area.

“Nice beans, slaw and hush puppy courtesy dishes”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

We stopped by Fred's between Batesville and Moorefield just before supper hour and they were quite busy already. Service was prompt, and we loved that the waitress brought us beans, slaw and hush puppies before we even placed our orders. That and sweet tea settled us right in. The catfish was good, but we thought the servings pretty small compared to other places. Pretty much the size of chicken tenders, corn meal batter good, meet tender, but just too small for a big man. Small chef salad, on the other hand was HUGE. We couldn't imagine what the large size looked like.

Our waitress was a very professional and pleasant gal who lives in Cord, recent transplant from Texas, and very on top of her tables. Our apologies for not remembering her name, but if she is indicative of the wait staff there, it's AAAA all the way home. Hostess runs the cash register and there was a back up there, folks waiting to pay as well as waiting to be seated when we left. Friendly though, you just have to adjust to Arkansas time.

We have found that the myriad Freds vary in service and kitchen. No reason not to go to this one.

“Regulars; it's good.”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

Catfish is good, we come here all the time. This is the place to take out-of-town relatives for a traditional Arkansas meal with green tomato relish, beans, and hush puppies. Don't forget the raw onion!
