DESCRIPTION
Open since 1994, seafood favorite Middendorf's offers some of the area's very best catfish, fried thin, thick and whole.

From John T. Edge, writing in Oxford American magazine:
"It's a place where, for three generations [since 1934], women have worked with cutlass-tipped knives, shaving fish into vellum filets that, after a soak in salt water, a roll in cream meal, and a dip in popping cottonseed oil, emerge from the fry vats looking like crumpled yellow tissues and tasting like the lovely and raspy offspring of a bag of Lays and a net of channel cats."

"If catfish isn't your deal, there are other options, namely a fine stew of oysters with milk and scallions, the stuffed crab and a broiled whole flounder that no restaurant would be ashamed of delivering to a table."
Gayot

ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Kids' menu. Full bar. Serving lunch and dinner Wed–Sun. Closed Mon–Tue.
