Adam's Catfish House Restaurant Review:

About the décor: Although Belle Chasse is a hike from the city, those who know catfish understand that Adam's Catfish House is a worthy destination for its namesake fare. The restaurant is a no-frills kind of place when it comes to décor (uncomfortable wooden booths, plastic tablecloths, banquet chairs), but the friendliness of the staff provides all the atmosphere necessary for a pleasant experience.

Likes: Huge portions.
Dislikes: Lack of décor.

Food & Drinks: Appetizers include fried pickles, fried veggies and fried onions. Patrons mostly come for the fresh, properly fried catfish served in daunting portions, along with such sides as oversize hush puppies and coleslaw. Tradition departs in Adam's own catfish salad, made with fried catfish and hard-cooked egg bound with a touch of creamy tartar sauce. Eat it like a dip with the buttery "Captain's crackers" included on the side, or simply savor it by the spoonful. The menu is short and all about the catfish --- no desserts and no alcohol.
