My quest for finding a good seafood restaurant locally is neverending. I do have one favorite in Warner Robins, but we just haven’t made it there this year for the blog, yet. But this past week, we did trek across town to The Catfish House on Moody Road to dine on fish and hushpuppies. A caveat before this review begins: Our waitress informed us before we left that the menu will be re-hauled in July, so be aware that your experience may differ from ours.
I hemmed and hawed until I decided to try a “Pick 2” plate with fried shrimp and grilled flounder with a side of fried sweet potato chips and cheese grits. The flounder was seasoned well and I was pleasantly surprised at its yumminess. I can get quite picky about my grilled fish. The shrimp, on the other hand, were duds. After the third one, I made up my mind that the rest weren’t worth eating. I am not sure what the problem was – just not a good flavor and seemed that perhaps they were fried well ahead of the time I actually ordered them. My sweet potatoes, grits, and hushpuppies were quite good, though.
We asked about dessert and were informed that the only offering was a complimentary ice cream on a brownie bite for birthdays. This lack of sweets will be addressed in the menu overhaul in July, though.
