Thank you for supporting me for the last four years. I am closing my doors and moving on to my next great adventure. I just couldn't make it work any longer.
BUT, a franchise called Fish Tales is taking over my lease. They are remodeling right now and they use the same recipes and will be adding things to the menu, so please go by and support this new business.
They will be opening on Wednesday.
I am still going to help the angels on the angel tree that I have taken so far. I will post them on here and hopefully get them all taken care of. If not I will get my fellow friends and neighbors to adopt them. The new owners have happily agreed to still let the cafe be a drop off point for the donations and the gifts. The angel tree will go on.
Thanks again for 4 years worth of support and Please go support the new business. The young couple that owns it is wonderful and you will enjoy them....
I don't know why most of the time I've eaten fish there, the edges were always chewy on the fish. I was not too fond of that. I don't know if that is a result of using unfrozen filets to fry or another reason but I hope they can fix that. I always like a good local catfish joint. I don't get the chewy edges when we dine at Catfish Cafe in Atascocita but that place is a bit greasy in the dining area. The food is great though. I guess grease is something you have to deal with at a fish joint.
I offer something for you to consider in your time of reflection.
Thomas Edison failed thousands of times before he revolutionized the world by inventing and patenting the incandescent light bulb. Because of his desire to create the incandescent light, he was one of the most persistent people in history. The invention in which Edison had the most failures, the incandescent light, was one of his most famous inventions.
I personally never went to your store but I can offer this observation. I was at the liquor store next door to your place at 4:00 pm on Christmas eve. Every business in this town was closed and it was a mad rush for everyone to get home. I saw you loading presents in a car for a family with kids. A bicycle, other stuff. You looked tired and yet determined to finish your mission.
I am sorry! I didn't frequent your place much- not big on fried anything BUT you at big in my book because after Hurricane Ike you opened quick Nd I was starving ( I'd lost 6 lbs by the beginning of Day 3) and you were OPEN. We ate a ton of food- Thank you so much for being there for the community!! YOU are an ANGEL!! Let us know what u do next!
God Bless you and your family. We will definitely try out the new owners but will miss you! After my mom unexpectedly divorced my dad after 45 years of marriage my dad, brother and I met there quite a few times for lunch and we have great memories of relearning our relationships there. Best of luck!
Thank you all for your nice comments.....the new catfish place will be excellent, please support them like you supported me. He is actually a kid that worked for me and my dad when he was 16 when we opened the catfish cafe 11 years ago....he is married and has a cute little girl.
He had the trailer called catfish cove on 1960 and he just recently sold it and is gonna try his hand with this fish tales cafe......
He will do well and I am happy and stress free and looking forward to spending the holidays with my family!
I will post the angels for the tree this weekend!

Hello Everyone! I am the new owner of Catfish Place, now Fish Tales express. Thank you all for your wonderful comments to Gina and I hope we can do half as much as she has done for the community. All we can ask for is one chance! Try our food :) if you look us up on GoogleMaps you can see the menu. Please note: use soybean oil to fry our food (for allergy purposes). Happy Eating and Happy Holidays!!
