Well normally I would say if it’s black send it back , but at the Sole Fish cafe the Blackened catfish fillets are pretty dam good, not oily or grease bomb style but grilled and flavoured with cajon seasoning . Australian couples would order just a single serve with one extra fillet and when married up to a great range of side orders would enjoy a normal style serving without leaving half of the food on the plate.
We go the sweet potato fries, ladies fingers, green beans , all vegetables are cooked to death but the fish is great .

You won't leave hungry! The tacos and poboy's are amazing. I recommend the Po-boy with oysters and shrimp. Everything is fried to perfection.

Due to the reviews on this site, we tried Soul Fish Cafe and were very pleased.

Atmosphere - a cafe setting with a lot of tables in a fairly large open space, coupled with a counter and open kitchen.

Service - very good, but not outstanding.

Food - the best catfish we've had in years, possibly forever. The breading is just enough and very tasty, the fish is fried perfectly, and the sides were tasty, although the fries lacked.

Value - for the price, we expected larger filets of fish, but their prices are not out of line. They advertise free wifi, but when I couldn't get any and asked the server, she said their wifi is always down and having problems.

If we return to Memphis, we will definitely go back to Soul Fish Cafe.
