REVIEWS OF Jerry's Catfish House IN Mississippi

Patrick Waterman

Dang good food and service

nancy young

Awesome food!, awesome service!...NEVER disappointed!!!....the all you can eat fillets are "ON POINT!"

Ricco Vance

The little igloo is the best stop you could ever make! Fried catfish - whole and fillet - PERFECTION! I always leave beyond full. Make sure you bring an appetite and plan for a crowd.

John Macoy

Love this place, been going since I was a kid. All you can eat catfish is the best choice. Of course, they are always busy.

Guy Gaines

Great place

Maggy Butler

The fish taste good but the filets are very tiny as are the hush puppies, the waitress was impatient, inattentive, and kinda rude, the lady who had answered the phone before we got there was rude and curt. The cashier was rude and I saw no friendly or smiling staff anywhere, the French fries were terrible frozen things, the 12 dollars for sad Cole slaw yucky fries, marble size hushpuppies and 4 basically fish nuggets was ridiculous, if you aren't getting all you can eat catfish don't bother going to Jerry's. The pie is frozen store bought cheaply made pie, dont bother. Pretty much I don't reccomend this place unless you do all you can eat. I never saw a bathroom or anyone looking to be helpful enough to direct me to one so I could wash my hands before I ate, also they are very very stingy with drink refills, and they have their syrup to co2 mix set thin, so the drinks taste watered down. Good fish just very little of it dosen't make up for being treated poorly.

Michelle Beemon

Everything was good. Prefer to have hot fish on my first serving of fish, each time I've been, the first order is always cool, second order is served hot.

Mickey You so fine

I've been coming here for 25 years.. Tonight the food was great as always. However the server was at best horrible. Her name is Amanda. She literally sat down with her friends visiting and ignored her customers. When customer service is the mojority of your business, you can't let that slide.

tom schwab

Fish was excellent service above average. All food was fresh and plenty

Billy Dawg

Great Fish, Cold Slaw off da chain, if you Order the Buffet you better be Hungry!!! Great Price.. Ohh good Sweet Tea .. You will be Back!!!

Southern Breeze

Great Food, Great Service, Highly Recommended.

JT's Reviews&comments

Best catfish in the state

Selena Williams

I was disappointed in how our waitress treated our party of 9 like we really didn't matter. Although they were extremely busy, she was rude in telling us that she had to wait on her tables and didn't have time to get something ordered that she had forgotten. We also felt that some of the regulars were served before us and we had been seated over 30 minutes. Food was delicious but they were out of potatoes by 7pm. I won't be going back soon because there are other good catfish restaurants in the area.

Buddy VanMeter

The best catfish in town

Lyn Hazen

The catfish is good but the service is slow. I am disappointed to be charged for a glass of water. This is the first place I have been that charges for tap water.

Melitta Walker

Jerry's catfish is the best catfish around. The slaw is fabulous the sweet tea just right and the tartar sauce is delicious. Just be sure to wear warm clothes because it is cold inside the restaurant.


Love the food

Sarah Amos

It was great. Love the prices.

Alston Curtis

The fish was wonderful.

BernNadette McLin

Waitress didn't come to our table for awhile. Received food but nothing to eat with. Didn't get refills on beverages until I asked. Other than that, everything was great

Mark Vice

It's so good

Summer Abernathy

Absolutely love this place. I grew up eating at Jerrys almost every weekend. It's still at the top of my list for.catfish. If you want a seat you better go early!

Tameka Evans

Good food

Kane Roper

Best fried catfish in town hands down!

Stephen Wilson

Food has gone down hill in the last few years. It's a shame, because it used to be good. Service is ok, but could be better.

Matthew Smith

Took my dad for Father's Day at his request. Bet popular place, because there were about 50 people in line outside 25 minutes before they opened. We sat upstairs. We both ordered the catfish, which is all you can eat, with cole slaw, hush puppies, and green beans. Everything was very fresh and hot, the catfish was excellent. My father really enjoyed it as well as me. I would totally go back.

Robin Smith

The best catfish and cole slaw i have EVER had!!!!

Amanda Koger

Dont waste your time and .o ey unless you only like catfish as an option

Mark Losset

Simply the best catfish for decades. Fixing are good also. Maybe some of the other things too, but I always get the catfish. If you are not a big eater, the small plate gives you 4 filets or one whole fish for a lot less than the all you can eat.

Scooby doo

Great catfish and sides, all-you-can-eat and other options. Service is always fast and friendly.

Mike Knott

Love dinning there! The wait is worth it. Living on the Gulf Coast now but every opportunity to go north, we have to stop in at Jerry's.

Harvey Collins

It is fried catfish. Welcome to Mississippi. Fish filets, corn meal, salt, pepper and peanut oil.

James Kilpatrick

David McCoy

Great but expensive.

Kathy Gardner

My grandson’s favorite place to eat! Good food at a reasonable price.

Tara Bradley

Great food and service! Perfect for someone with a shellfish allergy as they fry the shellfish SEPARATELY!

Sallie Galbreath

Its judt that good.

Casey Hill

Had good service, food was ok, A bit overpriced, especially driving from Brandon for food that taste about the same as McDonald's for two times the price

Cathy Craven

We always enjoy Jerry. I got the seafood platter and my husband got the all you can eat whole catfish. The service is always good too

Ricky Saul

Great fish, none better

Calvin Keith

The best catfish in the metro with fast friendly service . Much more on the menu to choose from. Check hours and days open before going.

Goyo GTO

Passing this place the igloo shape and the full parking lot grabbed our attention. We turned around and sat for a meal. It’s very anti-Keto, but definitely worth cheating for. Locals come for the ‘All You Can Eat’ $15.95 dish. We had the combo platter with five catfish filets & five shrimp. It came with coleslaw and fries for $14.95. This place was packed to the gills! (Catfish humor) The place is clean. The atmosphere was subdued; likely mellowed by the yellow interior paint. Tell them Goyo GTO Highley recommends. Please consider giving me a ‘like’ for the review.

Michael Miller

Great food, fast even though we stood in line to eat would eat again if I get a chance.

Calvin Smith

Great friendly service. Great food. Nice atmosphere. I highly recommend eating there!

Brooks Taylor

Try the thin n crispy catfish fillets! My favorite fish house in Mississippi and I've tried many. Cool atmosphere in the igloo. Service can be slow at times and there can be waits to be seated. Still a great time and value of you're in the mood for catfish.

J. E.

The best catfish you'll find anywhere! Plus the coleslaw is awesome. In fact, that's all I eat whenever I eat there ... Catfish & coleslaw ... No need to fill up on anything else! Get the "all you can eat" catfish fillets!

Joycelyn Myers

It was great. Food was really good.

Mike A

One of the best places for catfish.

William L Lindsey

My family has always gone to Jerry's when we have catfish on our minds. The fish is top quality, the atmosphere, and the service is superb.

jennifer b

Best catfish ever!

edgar reed

The catfish and everything that went with it was terrific. I can truly say ", it won't be my last time"!

clinton allison

Great catfish wait time was rather long

Richard Bridgeman

I️ usually enjoy this place but went last night and had a rude and unprofessional server. She slammed my parties orders down on the table and set everything on one end of the table instead of handing it to anyone. In all fairness to the restaurant the older lady’s that serve that’s always smiling is always great. This young generation should take notes at customer service. The fish is pretty good but I️ would prefer a little seasoning for my taste. Don’t recommend eating upstairs with the rude young servers.

Delaney Abby

I'm only giving this 2 stars because it's extremely popular and they do have really good food. My family really enjoys their catfish, hushpuppies and coleslaw. However, this pass mother's day, 5/12/19 My mother in law, husband, and I had a call in order for 3 plates. When i got there the Lady at the front counter was EXTREMELY rude. I was approached with a "what do you want" attitude. Told her I was there for our order and she just shrugged and acted like she had no idea what i was talking about. So i said, "maybe we called the wrong location" and she said "Well i'm not the one taking the calls" so i was left standing there without her telling me whether to sit, wait, she'll check, nothing. I had to sit down and literally ask "do you want me to wait" she didn't say anything. So my order comes out luckily i waited cause i almost thought they didn't have the order and left cause she was not helpful AT ALLL. I had to ask to add a coleslaw and she SLAMMED HER hand on the counter and turned toward her co worker to tell them to "add a slaw". The service was HORRIBLE. NASTY and UNHELPFUL. Go for the food i guess, But they need better management of service.

Tim Kelly

Got in quick and the shrimp was awesome.2 thumbs up.

Kathline Bailey

Great food, great service, our waitress Kathy was the best ever. A must for anyone that loves fish,

Karen Ellzey

Great food and service

LaQuinta Smith

The food and customer service is awesome!!

Jodin Poupart

I ordered filets, they were small and a bit crunchy, but I loved them! About 50 bucks for two all you can eat fish and fixings. Our waitress was VERY efficient. I was actually amazed how prompt and accommodating she was. The line was out the door when we arrived, but we still were seated quickly. They take large parties with ease. Delicious food and great servers. Worth every penny!!!

Juanita Johnson

Good Southern Cooking!

Claire Langley

ALWAYS enjoy when I go. This is definitely a go big or go home type of dining experience. Take an empty stomach

Chad White

All I can say is wow. I think I gained 5 pounds.

george stanley

The catfish was great, the atmosphere was wonderful. Me and my wife have been there a couple of times but first time taking my kids they were enjoyed it my son treated me to early birthday dinner

Mrs Shaw

I just hadda come give my and my daddy's place 5 stars I've been eating here since it opened in '84 but I moved to GA I miss it even all you can eat chitlings on Thurs night. But I did visit a few years ago and the cole slaw has changed can ya please go back too original recipe? Other than that the sweet tea, hush puppies are awesome still. And the fish always fresh and on point. The waitress always make sure ur plate is full. Yaw will love it just not the long wait with the line out the door but hell it's so worth it!

Johnnie Foster

The fish does not smell fishies, taste great, good service.. Best fish in our area, there is a lot of fish houses around.

Cynthia Wilson

Best fried fish, hushpuppies, coleslaw, fries and service in this part of MS! Since Catherine Leanne and Jacob had plans to celebrate birthdays already, I took Steve Wilson and Codi out. Happy birthday, Catherine Leanne!

HannaNChris May

Ordered all you can eat catfish, they brought me two fish and I had to wait for more. Good place if you only want a few fish at a time everything else was decent.. Nice facility long wait.

Susan Dees

Food is wonderful and the price is great.

Felicia Easterling

Has always been a great place to eat with the family. This evening not such a great experience. Had reservations for 16 at 7:00. When we arrived we were informed that they were almost of of the small fillets. As we start to order only 1 member of our party was able to get the all you can eat and only 5 were able to get the small plate (4) fillets. Kind of crazy for a catfish restaurant to run out of their main menu item. Half of our party left since the were out. Shortly after others were seated only to be informed then they got up and left. Waitress was nice, but very frustrated as well over the situation. Has always been great food, however not sure that we will ever go back.

Debbie Wilson

Food was great! Service was good. Will be returning.

Sheila Russell

As always, Jerry's was very busy when we arrived about 7:30 pm. The food was exceptional! But the service was lacking...we asked for specific condiments at the time of ordering, butter, sour cream, tartar sauce, sweetner for the tea, and couldn't get them till our fish was more cold than hot.

Karen Davis

The best catfish dinners in the world. Service was great also. We usually get the all-you-can-eat, but the menu items are just as good.

LeeAnne Williams

AWESOME! They are exactly what they say they are. They are a CATFISH RESTAURANT. Food was sooo good. My husband and I are not big fish eaters but we will go there again with the are again Mississippi

Jon Mcleod

terre farwell

Frank Hickey

Karl Perry

All you can eat, very good cat fish ..enough said.

Yazan Alkiswani

Amazing Catfish, green beans & sweet tea is to die for. Amazing service from our waiter and food came out fast.

Chuck Arnold

Usually busy but it us well worth the wait in line. They have whole catfish and fillets.

Amber Gray

Atmosphere is neat and food is good....but was somewhat surprised they charged 50 cents for ice water.

Robert E. Wells

Service was good, food tasty, short waiting time for take out

Terina Davis

Awsome food... You get a lot for very little...

Annette Spruiell

I have been eating at Jerry's Catfish for over 20 years now. There has never been a time my food was not as good as the last time! Ever. I have been many times when I was fortunate enough to walk in and immediately be seated; other times I've had to wait. Since personal opinion and experience tell my mouth the wait is more than worth it, I ever-so-patiently stand in line. Once seated, and my order of catfish filets, coleslaw, hushpuppies, and french fries arrive by any one of the great waitresses there, it appears I have eaten in days as I dig in and scarf it up! Forget the prim and proper worry of "who may see me eat more than 4 pieces of fish" thought ... everyone else in this building I'm 99.9% sure is doing the exact same - eating their fill of the best fried catfish you can get at any restaurant! So - ENJOY YOUR VISIT! It will be worth your time if your are prepared in advance for the wait to be seated.

scott patterson

Awesome catfish. Some of the best I have ever eaten. Recommend getting the all you can eat catfish cause you'll want more..

Brandylynn Summerlin

Great fish, excellent service ... cant wait to go back

Nicole Anderson

The fried shrimp are huge! ( this is the 12 piece platter, I had given some shrimp and fries to my child before this pic was taken.)The coleslaw is sweet and pairs perfectly with the hush puppies. Our waitress was very engaging and kind to our crowd of over 30 family members. With that many people, our wait time to be served was longer, but worth it.

Misheila Johnson

My absolute favorite fish place!! Our family spot

Alton Sims

Good food

t mac

Best catfish place in Florence!

Harlee Boo

The food is okay but we probably won’t be back. I ordered Togo a few nights ago, the lady at the front counter was very dry and acted like she had an attitude. She threw my bag on the counter as she called me name. Never asked if I needed condiments or anything. Rude. She gave me two options for ordering Togo but I later found out there was many different things I could’ve gotten. $15 for 8pc of fish, a little serving of fries, and some over OVER shredded coleslaw. The fish was thin and crispy. Very little meat between the breading. Most likely won’t be back.

Vin Lew

the food was good , always order the same thing when I go there because I'm not a fan of catfish.

Josh Cornelius

great food and great service! worth the wait!

Leah Curry-Williams

The best catfish eva'!

krystal duvall

This place is overall the best catfish I've tasted in a long time. .Everything was hot and fresh...Service was great ...Was coming from the coast and wanted some catfish and fell in love...Will be back soon

Anthoney Fryfogle

This is an awesome place. The food and the desserts. A one stop shop for lunch or dinner.

Felecia Hopkins

Very great service and the food was delicious. The environment was good. I would recommend anyone to go eat there.

John McGraw

Nice waitress...really busy, but good hot food. Priced appropriately

Titus Dixon

Great food!!

Helen Davis

I wanted some authentic Mississippi fried catfish. If you do not like the smell of chitterlings do not visit this place on Thursdays. I was passing through and didn't know any better. I had the seafood platter. Evening was just ok. The onion rings were good. Good sweet tea too.

Pamela Jackson

Food was delicious and the service was great!

Jamesia Morris

Absolute perfection EVERYtime. The staff has that southern charm, and the food is simply outstanding.

james mangum

Always good, Great service.

Jim Ingram

Great food and service

John Caleb Dilmore

If you want the best catfish that Central MS has to offer, go to Jerry's! I always get the all-you-can-eat filets, but they serve whole fish too. If catfish isn't your thing, they serve other, always delicious items - shrimp, oysters, chicken, etc. Unique place located inside the "igloo." Great restaurant to take the family to as well.

Faye Durr

Great place to share a meal with family

Netta Jay

The hostess could have been more friendly, nasty attitude but the service and food was great! Kudos to the serving staff!!!

Dillon Donnell

Nice place and good catfish

Dennis Jones

Best fish and best coleslaw around.

Melody Henry

Great food & great service. Best catfish restaurant!

the big buddies

Food is amazing staff was great. Catfish buffet is the way to go.

Chris Hobson

Excellent. Best fish in central Mississippi. There's often a line, but usually not too long of a wait. It is worth the wait in my opinion. $15 all you can eat. You cant beat the fried okra. The dome building is unique.

Dereck Brown

Great food! The secret family recipes are on point!

actor's from movies clips and movies

Great food and wonderful service.

Misty Amos

Jane Taylor

Excellent fish! Love the laid-back atmosphere!

Amber Fink

Always great food but the customer service over the years has seriously been slacking.

savegelife sad

The food and service was excellent.

Annette Thomas

For ppl like us who catch/eat our own fish this was an awesome place to eat fish!

Guy Byars

We’d driven by it enough times and seen a full parking lot; we finally had to try it out. The line wasn’t bad at 5 pm on a Sunday, they seated us upstairs which was a bit odd with the domed ceiling. The service was great, the catfish was delicious, and you can’t beat all-you-can-eat for $15. We will come back when the boys are a bit older and put that to the test, in the meantime it’s a winner.


Jerry's Catfish house is the best place to eat we love love love this place and the family

Robin Ward

LOVE Jerry' love love!!!

Tammy Lott

As always the food is good so was the Waitress. She had smile and was friendly which was most important.
