History

---- image003.jpg (large)

For the last five years, Catfish Charlie’s restaurant has been wildly growing its business by offering nothing less than the finest seafood in town. Found in the Office Depot Shopping Center on Louisville Avenue, Catfish Charlie’s is truly a different experience for fine food. From the unique “Whole filets” and the tantalizing “Thin and Crispy Catfish” to the huge shrimp, either boiled or fried, Catfish Charlie’s knows how to put a smile on your face.

Though many days the line is hanging out of the door when you arrive, you are sure to be waited on quickly and usually receive your fresh cooked to order food in less than ten minutes. The best seller has been the “thin and crispy fried catfish” but everyone seems to have a different favorite. The homemade thin purple onion rings and the fried dill pickle slices are very unique and by far are the two most popular appetizers. The newest appetizers, the home-made cheese sticks and the fried
green tomatoes have had whopping success as well. The shrimp and filets combo baskets and the oysters are always high up on the sales charts. We must say that we know this sounds a little strange, but the Cheeseburgers are to die for! Yes, we said cheese burgers! The discovery of a wonderful burger is not the only surprise found at Catfish Charlie’s. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that you can eat very healthy here as well! Grilled or blackened Catfish, Tilapia, Salmon, or Chicken is always a great choice. All of his grilled or blackened meats are seasoned with a local flare with homemade spices. These items can be served over a fresh salad or as a plate with grilled veggies and homemade Jambalaya. Other “from scratch” sides include, Red Beans and Rice, Cajun Mashed Potatoes, Crawfish Etouffe, Seafood Gumbo, Cajun Boiled New Potatoes and the good old Idaho Potato as well. Catfish Charlie’s offers catering services for any occasion and offers special corporate pricing as well.

Owner, Doug Wood has deep history in the food service business. From the time he was old enough to walk he wanted to help out at both his family’s restaurants. Doug’s grandfather, Harry Wood, owned the famous “ Harry’s Seafood” on Interstate 165 across from North Monroe Hospital. His Uncle owned the “Bend of the River” restaurant in Alto, Louisiana. Doug says that the restaurant business gets in your blood and it is hard to walk away from. He will tell you that his one desire is to serve the twin cities in such a way that one day Catfish Charlie’s will be the legend that Harry’s and Bend of the River both were. He knows that there will be hundreds of more days of hard work to get to that point, but the task, in his mind, is worth the work!
