“Good Food, Good View”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

I have ate at Catfish Charlie's several times. I usually got the buffalo burger and soup; it was my favorite. The food is very good.

The price is a bit steep for lunch (even with the buffalo burger).

You get a view of Dubuque Yacht Basin and the back water connecting to the Mississippi River.

“Horrible food, atmosphere and service!!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Thinking our first visit was a fluke, we stopped again-big mistake!! Nothing has changed!! Along with all the nasty stains on the carpeting and the dirty dirty tables and chairs. There was one server for the 2 tables seated and he took forever to get anything done!! Food was awful...will never ever return!!

“Good find in Dubuque”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Located next to Mystique Ice and overlooks the water--would be very nice in the summer and fall I would think. Clam chowder is very good! A bit pricey for lunch, but food is very good! Biggest fish sandwich I've ever seen.

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

The place looked nice from the outside but certainly was nothing special inside, it just didn't seem like anyone knew what they were doing. The staff was not friendly and the food was edible at best. Also pretty expensive for what you get a piece of fish and fries.

“The best tenderloin in Dubuque”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

I enjoy a good tenderloin sandwich. Charlie has the best one in town. He prepares each from scratch and hand breads the tenderloin. The coating is excellent. The thickness of the loin lets you know you are eating something. The fries and slaw are very good. They fresh brew their tea. Not from a dispenser behind the bar. We sat at the bar for our lunch and enjoyed the view and service.
