“Pricey with an attitude”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

I have visited this place several times hoping that it would get better, but I was sadly disappointed again. The lady who operates this establishment needs to get her an attitude makeover for working with the public. The food is just okay and you will pay a pretty price for it. The portions are too small for the large price. And there is a charge for everything. Shocking that they don't charge for ketchup while dining in. To-go orders take forever and the set up inside is backwards.

“Catfish for a price”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The food is good if you want to pay extra for it. The price may not be so bad since you do not have to drive into town to eat fish if you live in Dixie. I much prefer to go to the all-you- can eat fish places. They have other items which folks say are very good also, but the complaint from everyone is the price, but they are always busy when open.

“Southern Comfort Country Sunday Buffet”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

Finally took the opportunity to do the Sunday Buffet (11a-2p) at Newt's. What we found was a very extensive assortment of country comfort food items. Overall a Very Good experience. It was just like an old friend use to tell me "ain't enough o's in smooth". After the banana pudding, I had to loosen my belt to get in the car for the ride back home. Yabba-Daba-Doo

“Dixie Delight”
Reviewed 31 October 2012

A Dixie Delight and no doubt about it. This is a catfish plus kind of place. Have been to the place several times and have not had a problem. Service is excellent. Atmosphere is casual and cozy. Seating flexability and a very good seafood combination menu. So far I have sampled 3 or 4 different combination items and am about to formulate my favorite. Presently, leaning toward the catfish and fried shrimp combo plate..
