Catfish Hill Restaurant
Wolfe Lane, off Hwy. 71 E. in Garfield, 247-2528
A new generation of the Washington family operates this small catfish farm and country restaurant, but the fish is as wonderful as always. Order a whole catfish or several filets and they'll arrive in a lacy cornmeal coating, crisp and crunchy on the outside, sweet and mild within. This is one restaurant where you can taste for yourself that the main course was raised with tender, loving care. Worries that the proximity of the new airport would spoil the bucolic charm of Catfish Hill have fortunately proved to be unfounded.
