Cherry Creek Catfish Company

5712 Manchaca, 440-8810

Mon-Thu, 11am-9pm; Fri-Sat, 11am-10pm

Cherry Creek is a comfortable family restaurant with something on the menu to please everyone. There's a burger for the non-fish eater, and dieters can order boiled shrimp or fish from the grill, while fried food lovers can choose from catfish (fillets or whole), shrimp or oysters alone or in combo platters with hush puppies, fries, cole slaw, and pinto beans. Southern-style po'boys come on a toasted roll dressed with tartar sauce, lettuce, and tomatoes, and make a full meal with an order of fried green tomatoes as an appetizer.
