On our annual trek back to Michigan we stop at Dowd's for dinner. We time our travels, so this will be our dinner stop. I ordered the catfish off the Senior Menu with green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy. My husband had a combination BBQ plate. The food was served hot and with a smile. I am always happy to find a place that can consistently deliver a good meal. Our server Katie gave us excellent service. The restrooms were clean and well maintained.

We stopped here for supper on our Route 66 tour. We enjoyed the regional menu and friendly service. Seemed to be popular with local residents as well.

If you go to a catfish restaurant, then you should order the catfish. However, my wife loves the smoked chicken. I always order the catfish and it is perfect. She continues to order the chicken and loves it. Their sides are great. I prefer the green beans. This place is deservedly busy, but they still deliver the meals on a timely basis.

My mother and I came here for dinner from going to Jefferson City back to Branson area. She told me this was a great place to eat so I was in. I ordered the nachos and they were delicious and HUGE. My mother ordered the catfish she said it was a little fishy. Our server(can’t remember her name ugh!) was really nice and super fast! The food comes out in a timely manner. We also got chocolate meringue pie for dessert and it was delicious! We got there around 5pm and they weren’t busy so we were a little worried but they picked up about 530 once people got off work.
