Catfish Dewey's--restaurant Review

I have been going to Catfish Dewey's for over 15 years but it had been awhile since I was there last. Robert wanted some catfish so there wasn't any decision except to go there. I've always loved their all you can steamed shrimp so that's what I ordered. The price of $20.50 is a 'little' higher then it was 15 years ago but it is still good. The all you can eat fried catfish has also gone up in price now being $16.50. The shrimp, though of a good size, seemed a little smaller but not that much different.

Both orders came with Cole slaw and a basket of hush puppies. You get a choice of fries, baked potato or rice pilaf.

We were having a late lunch, about 3 PM, so the place was on the quiet side. Andrew, our server, did a great job with refills of everything plus our drinks before we had to ask for any item. When we left--hey it IS all you can eat--about 2 hours later the place was filling up.

Walking into Catfish Dewey's is like walking into yesterday with everyone the same, friendly as all get out, everything the same whether the furnishings or the food yet the former is clean and looks new and the food is good.


I really enjoyed the familiar feel good atmosphere and, of course, the shrimp.

Sounds lovely. I'd rather go somewhere like that than a fancier place.

Not many fancy places--except in hotels--last long here.

Nice! Not one complaint!

It's one of those few restaurants that are consistent and you know what to expect and that is what you get! (Just like me! )
