good local flavor...old school style, charm and food. They are known for their catfish but have plenty of other great items as well...try the frog legs!

Catfish place has a great atmosphere , lots of antique thing to see there . This is an older southern cooking style restaurant . A lot of the food is fried and they have some old style items that you will not find in the area , like "hush puppies" . One of the things of course you must try is the Gator bites , made from real alligator meat .

I love their fried green tomatoes! Some people that I have went here with do not like them. They have great cheese grits! The sweet tea is wonderful and is not instant. They have great tasting catfish and scallops.

The Catfish Place is a family oriented restaurant. It is a staple of Apopka and has been for decades. As it's name implies, the catfish is top notch, the hush puppies are unique and all of the menu reflects an attitude that is laid back, eat slowly and enjoy the great food. The restaurant ambiance is soft, with wooden interior accents and a train that goes around the perimeter of the main dining room. It's quiet so you will not be disturbed. The servers are all veterans and Heather is the just excellent. They make sure your order is perfect every time and the sweet tea is the best I've had. Located just off of highway 441 it is easy to get to from anywhere. If you like "old Florida" cuisine try the Catfish Place, I know you'll like it.
