If you’ve ever had a hankerin’ for some good ole southern-style catfish, The Fish House Café on K St in Tacoma is the place to go! This cramped, casual take-out joint is one of the best –kept secrets of southern-style cuisine in the South Sound Area. Their catfish is quite tasty (be sure to have it southern-style as this is heavenly to behold). The battered and fried zucchini was good and the coleslaw was fantastic, too! The shrimp were good, but the true star of the outing was the catfish. I’ve spent several years in the south and have missed few things from my time there (Sweet tea and fried catfish were it). After gobbling down the catfish I can truly say that it is the best catfish I’ve had since my forced sojourn in the south. Bar none.
The parking is dangerous (had to park on the street). The shop is small on the inside with only 2-3 tables. Your best bet is to get the takeout and leave. The service is fast but the servers are terse and offer little to no hospitality. BUT, who cares…the catfish is outstanding! Worth it. Big time.
P.S. I hear the philly cheese steaks are stellar. Gonna go back and try one. Soon.
