Soul Fish Cafe Restaurant Review: There’s no need to drive to the country to find deep-fried catfish, homemade hush puppies, and fresh vegetable sides. Soul Fish offers all the Southern dishes you’d typically find in a rural catfish shack, but it’s located in the artsy Cooper-Young Historic District. The atmosphere is a bit like that of a high school cafeteria, with painted cinder block walls and retro diner tables, but colorful art spices the place up a bit. Besides fried catfish, Soul Fish offers a Cuban po’ boy, smoked chicken and fresh-daily Southern-style vegetables. Bring the kids, as the diner is very kid-friendly. And arrive early for lunch or dinner as this place fills up fast. A so-so beer list and a short but decent wine list are available. Dessert means caramel pecan pie à la mode, or if you feel like drinking dessert, there’s also a root beer float. Also located at 3160 Village Shops Dr., Germantown, 901-755-6988.
