Catfish Parlour South
This may be the strangest review you read, but my friend is a Lyft driver and he had to drop someone off in Austin. He decided to stop by the Catfish Parlour for lunch and was greeted by Dave at the door!!! My friend with the BEST hospitality ever!! Now, I am on the phone talking with my friend and witnessed this first hand..... Dave took him through their entire dining process!!! And I can tell he had a smile in his voice.
That hospitality alone makes me want to jump in my truck and head to Catfish Parlour South!!! Don't forget to ASK FOR DAVE!!
Carmen is beyond the best wait-person I’ve had in a very long time! Yay Austin TX!!!
Year after year this is the best seafood house in Austin TX!!
Love to have fish here. Great for lunch even if there is a line it moves fast.
I especially enjoyed their cole slaw and jalapenos tartar sauce.
Honestly I know this is a catfish place but they have some of the best chicken tenders around!!
Great service! Always happy staff no matter how busy it gets. Food is delicious. The owners take great pride in making this a very successful restaurant!
Great food service great good price service was fast
Good old fashioned fried comfort. Not trendy.
Great lunch special all you can eat! The hush puppies make the world go round! Catfish is pretty tasty too ;)
Staff friendly, food good, price good and I go there often
The spicy catfish is some of the best you will find west of Arkansas or Louisiana. Unique flavor, never soggy, always crisp on the outside. I love the large combo with the friend shrimp. I can never eat all the food when I get it togo but in the restaurant my fish always ends up in a togo box. They provide unllimited sides and salad so there is no way you can go wrong here. The hush puppy sticks and jalepeno tartar sauce stand out as the signature of the parlours, some of the best you can find.
Nice catfish diner. Food is good
This is a great unique old feel restaurant. They have a lunch special that runs until 1600 and includes sides in a buffet style so you can get a little or a lot of what you want. The decor is like you stepped into a time machine. There are signs and plaques from a time that some would like to forget, but it does present a colorful time in history. This just became the new go to when we are in Austin to see a concert on a Friday.
Food is good,staff excellent. Wish they still had fried mush versus hush puppies
Love there food and great customer service.
Great food good Service
GREAT GREAT GREAT shrimp! The BEST shrimp I have tasted from Corpus Christi to Dallas! The fish, fries, and tarter sauce was good! I'm here now! I could not leave without adding this review. Only down side was the potatoe salad. Maybe add another potatoe salad option with less veggies! Other than that great! Excellent waitress
Soooo good. Jalapeno tarter sauce goes great with the fried oysters
This place has a great down home lunch deal. The catfish is seasoned perfect and crispy. They also have incredible cole slaw !
Great southern seafood place. Consistent, prompt, and friendly service. The fried and raw oysters are great. Good gumbo and plentiful menu choices.
Great food with generous portions and options, lots of seating, friendly staff.
The food was wonderful. I had the catfish and jumbo shrimp with bread pudding after that was to die for. I will definitely return. Also excellent prompt customer service. I was sceptical after reading the previous reviews but was pleasantly surprised
My Sister, Cousin and I went on Tuesday 27 September 2016 and the food was absolutely delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful and great. I would give our waitress a 9 Out Of 10. She sold herself and the food. We all said that we would be returning. I even stated that I would be bringing my husband on the next visit. Those Hush puppies with the two different dipping sauce mmmmm so good. The Chicken fried chicken was so tender and juicy that I could cut it with My Fork. CKPL
