“Good fish and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

The catfish was great and so was the sweet tea! Only complaint is that you have to order the "All you can eat!" They do not offer a two or three piece smaller meal, which is all I wanted. Service was great, my tea was refilled before it was half empty each time.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

This is one of the best fish restaurants for fried catfish anywhere. An all you can eat meal is reasonably priced and includes everything, not just fish. Only drawback only open evenings and closed on Sundays and Mondays. Fridays and Saturdays call ahead and make reservations or if you have a large group anytime.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

The Fish Fry probably has the best catfish in the area. Well, other than the semi-annual Garrets Bluff fishfry! They offer a nice environment with really good catfish. Their hushpuppies, whilce machine made, are adicting when you start dipping them in butter. And the pickles green tomatoes are awesome.
But what I find desturbing, is that my favorite item on the menue isn't the catfish or the shrimp, but their steaks. Yes, the steaks at a place called "The Fish Fry" are truly great. They season them nicely and I've never had one that wasn't cooked exactly as ordered. And tender, oh my gosh! And at about half the price you'd expect to pay in Dallas. If you ever visit Paris, TX, you must run by for dinner.

“A Little Expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

The restaurant was nice and the food was good. It is right off Loop 286 and looks to be built originally in a house. Plenty of room although it is suggested you make a reservation. I had a steak which runs around $19 while the catfish specialty is around $13. They bring hush-puppies out prior to your meal to snack on. It was a good restaurant, but not over the top!
