We go to catfish cove once a month. And up until today the food has always been good. But they brought out a pan of bbq ribs that were dead cold and smelled old. Pointed this out but was told they were not cold. The manager did take money off our bill. But still unhappy with the food quality.

Just got done trying to eat there. I can't believe no one has said anything about the smell coming from the ladies bathroom. It is awful. I got sick at my stomach when I went in there. You can smell it at the food buffet. The catfish was muddy tasting but just couldn't get pass the smell of the ladies room. We want be going back.<br /> Ek

I rated 5 stars only because we love crab legs night. But recently they have started all u can eat lobster on Thursday and it was totally disgusting. They brought them out whole and when u pull the tale off all the green innards come out also. Most of them were full of eggs. It was awful. Other than that on tues is all u can eat crab legs nag they are awesome!!!! Just don't go to lobster night!!!lol

Food is great and overall service also...except for Gestapo tactics displayed at the end of what started as a wonderful evening. Our waitress had brought ice cream and a lady from the kitchen brought fresh hot cinnamon rolls. We were so stuffed that there were two rolls left, so assuming that once served the remaining rolls would be trashed I suggested we take them for breakfast the next day. Bad move...the GESTAPO woman (she's no lady) from the front desk made a scene at our table as if we were common thieves/criminals. Our friend's wife was also accused of stealing the plastic crab leg implements that she had brought from Joe's Crab Shack, not knowing if they would be available since this was their first visit. We tried to explain that we weren't aware of their rules that made this a crime, to no avail. We then placed the cinnamon rolls back on the table. We were attacked again by the GESTAPO Woman as we were leaving, asking if we had anything else in our wives purses...again making a scene in front of all around. I'm sure they had at least $0.25 cost in the cinnamon rolls in question, but our check was in excess of $80. Although we live out of town we have frequented Catfish Cove many times over the years, usually with friends and have spent a considerable amt. of money. The embarrassing and EXTREMELY RUDE moment by GESTAPO woman was totally uncalled for and even though I'm sure they won't miss our $80 visits, I will be sure to relay our experience on to all whom I had previously recommended this place to. Hopefully this was an isolated event, but BEWARE!

We ate there in February and are planning another trip to Arkansas in May. Our only request was to return to Catfish Cove for a Tuesday night all-you-can eat crab leg dinner. We are from Cincinnati, Ohio, so we are used to good restaurants! This is a fun experience and the food is excellent. The waitress couldn't have been better at keeping the large table supplied with lots of crab legs! Great place!!!
