The mouthwatering lunch specials attract a crowd to this casual three-year-old restaurant from 11am-2pm every weekday and we know the reason why. Everything here is made from scratch, and nothing hits the spot like good home cooking. Catfish and seafood combo dinners with a choice of two side dishes come in different sizes depending on your appetite. Seriously hungry folks go for the Big Cat, a butterflied whole catfish in a crisp cornmeal coating for only $7.95, and choose from sides like hush puppies, fries, cole slaw, beans, fried okra, or gumbo to round out the meal. Save room for homemade desserts if you can.
