This quaint little county café is located on the bluff over looking the majestic Alabama River, so you may enjoy the scenic view while dining on the most mouth watering Alabama River Catfish you can find anywhere.  Open only on the weekends for the noon and dinner meals on Friday and Saturday.  On Sundays they are open for the lunch meal only.  If “fresh” local catfish, is not what you are seeking, don’t worry, they offer a full menu just as enticing.

Dining here is a must if you are anywhere in the area, and well worth the drive, if you or not.
