The Friendsville area and restaurant is very scenic. Mill and flowered paths. The employees are very nice and extremely friendly. Excellent service. However, the catfish is not what I expected. Alot of breading, not much meat. I prefer light breading and thick meat. Desserts were out of this world and homemade. I would skip the catfish and just order the dessert.
Allison's Catfish is a family friendly restaurant with food to die for! They have a cordial staff that do a great job. They only have fish, chicken, and shrimp but they're all awesome! They have a small menu because they are only open on friday and saturday from 5-9. (open from march till the end of october.)
The desserts and tea are the best around.
I would recommend going!
We had heard praises about the catfish at Allison's. The breading was thick, but to Allison's credit, the catfish contained only white meat.The sweetened tea was over-the-top sweet for our tastes. The total tab for 2 regular dinners plus 2 teas was $30+, excluding tip, which we feel is high for what we received.
This family owned restaurant is only open seasonally on Friday and Saturday evenings so call before go. The grounds of the family's house and restaurant are very nice to wander around while waiting to eat.
They serve fried catfish, chicken and shrimp ONLY but they all are wonderful. They also have homemade pies that are to die for! It is a little pricey but worth it!
