CLOSED! The Catfish House in Smyrna is no longer in business. The building is gone, the business is gone, even the pile of bones where they cleaned all those catfish is gone. In its place, Panera Bread. When we asked a local where the place was, he told us developers offered the owner $4M+ for his property so he took the money, closed the place and went fishing.
Best secret outside Nashville! – If you liked Uncle Bud's, you'll love Catfish House. It was very easy to find, and it is the cutest little house. They serve white beans, coleslaw, hushpuppies, and fixin's with all entrees. The white beans were a bit bland, but nothing that a little salt and pepper didn't fix. The coleslaw and hushpuppies were delicious! We both got the all-you-can-eat catfish and what more can you ask for? The fish was freshly cooked and made to order each time we got more. Even more importantly, the service was great. We had our 8 month old son with us, and had lots for requests. Our server Scott went over and beyond his job. He was so curtious and willing to assist us with anything. He even entertained our son who LOVED HIM!!! What a great experience. We will definatley be back with our entire family soon! The overall all experience was a 10! Great homestyle food with 5 star service. Superb!
We will definitely go back! – I got the all you can eat cat fish filet dinner and hubby got catfish filet sandwich. Catfish was great. Fried okra - not one of my favorites - was very good! I'm not much for cole slaw or white beans either but these were both delicious! The hush puppies were as good as I have ever had. Our waitress was very friendly and took good care of us - as did all the servers we saw. It was our first visit but we will be back.
OK - the key lime was not my favorite - it was VERY sweet - but hubby ate his and mine!
Great Service – I have been a regular customer of the Catfish House in Springfield, but ever since I moved into Murfressboro area I have been going to the one in Smyrna. I have to tell you the service in Springfield, is great but the service here is very good too. It's so hard to choose which one is better. I am really happy though that one of the regular waitresses that I had in Springfield has moved up here to Smyrna. (I think she goes to MTSU.) But i just cant get over what great service both places have. P.S. the food is great too!
Delicious food! – Everything my family and I have ever eaten here has been delicious. The catfish is quick-fried so it's crispy outside and not greasy. On the weekends, they have homemade chocolate pies and homemade coconut pies. Heavenly!
Go early in the evening--it gets crowded after 6:00 on weekends. The service is friendly and efficient. The ambience is comfortable (nothing fancy) but very clean and attractive--what you would expect of a local, family-owned restaurant. This is one of my favorite restaurants: great food, reasonable prices, casual atmosphere.
food good but atmosphere could be nicer – Restaurant is always busy on weekends especially on sundays. Other times seems to be closed often. Not the best atmosphere but food is good.
Really really good seafood! – My family has eaten at the Catfish House so many, many times and never have we received anything that wasn't delicious.
Come early and it is always crowded--which is a testiment to how popular it is because it is so good.
