Catfish N has been serving up the best catfish ‘n fixins since 1971 in the heart of the best bass fishing in the country. Overlooking the scenic Arkansas River, you can unwind and enjoy the view while feasting on our Southern-style, home cooking. We are a family-owned and operated buffet-style restaurant, where the family recipes and dedication to quality have remained the same. Located just one mile south of the Dardanelle Lock and Dam, Catfish N offers the best casual dining priced to keep you coming back for more.

In the world of mega-chain restaurants, local flavor is becoming a thing of the past. Our staff prepares all our sauces, breading, dressings and sides from scratch. The cobblers are made from the owner’s grandmother’s special homemade recipes and our famous hush puppies have been rated the "best ever" in several national publications. We invite you to our "Little Cabin on the River" and experience Southern cuisine at its finest.
