Reviewed 8 June 2018

Nice casual restaurant that was recommended by a local. We selected a catfish basket, a whole catfish plate and the Peacemaker (seafood Po Boy). We selected black-eyed peas, sweet potato fries and Mac & cheese as our sides. All three sides were very good but we all thought the sweet potato fries were great. We absolutely would order the Peacemaker and the catfish basket again; however, the whole catfish was very oily; unusual because the catfish fillet was fine. Also, the caramel pecan pie was excellent.

Excellent food, great friendly service in a lovely ambience setting. Recommend the Telupia fish. Good local wine by the glass.

Love Soul Fish Cafe. The catfish plate is excellent and a safe choice here. I like to pair it with Mac-n-cheese and fries. I’m not a hush puppy kind of girl but my husband thinks they are pretty good.

The blackened shrimp po-boy is amazing. The bread is perfectly baked French bread and the lettuce and tomato is so fresh. The remoulade is a bit lacking, too much mayo so I only use their tarter sauce.

Try the fish tacos too! The flour tortillas are homemade. And the tacos are huge! You won’t be disappointed.

And if they have fried green tomatoes they aren’t too shabby.

We were visiting Memphis, where my husband grew up and my sister-in-law asked me what I wanted to eat. We said catfish, so she said the best was Soul Fish and she certainly was right. The catfish was the best I have ever had and my husband loved the hush puppies, so much that he took them home on the airplane. He said the hush puppies were still good after the long trip to California.

The desserts are also good and big enough to share.

Best fried catfish ever. Collard greens were fantastic. Finished the meal off with the best strawberry cake ever. Highly recommended.
