    The hushpuppies are a breath of fresh air, the Catfish is delicious, the collard greens are breathtaking and the fried okra will give you life. Great soul food spot that welcomes you to the south.

    I like this place. Nice small atmosphere that is usually packed. And I love their cornbread btw…and the other foods I've tried. Good eating!

    The small fish basket is really small. In comparison to a small basket from Catfish Station or Crock Pot where you can get a lot more fish that is just as good for the same or cheaper price.

    Try the veggie plate - it's three side items (like mac'n'cheese, green beans, cucumber salad, etc.) and a cornbread roll for about $7.

    Try the banana cake for dessert - even if you don't like bananas. It is sooo yummy. Thanks to Serafina for suggesting it.

    The hot wings are great, but more than an appetizer. About 10 wings on a plate of fries. Plan accordingly.

    The mild wings are out of this world! Order some up with a side of black eyed peas, you will Not be disappointed.

    While the catfish and sandwiches are all fantastic, if you're on a diet, the blackened chicken caesar salad is calorie-friendly AND delcious.

    Blackened tilapia is the best. Don't forget to ask for hushpuppies instead of cornbread. Yum!

    By far THE MOST underrated thing on the menu is the hot wings. They come with fries and the sauce from the wings oozes down and the fries just sop it up. It's the best thing on the menu at a fish plac

    The veggie plate is where it's at - you can get 3 veggies or sides with cornbread for $6.50.

    Catfish is incredible, large basket is enough for 2 (no, really). But, the Cuban Sandwich is the hidden gem on this menu. It is amazing.
