Crispy Catch on Perkins
Been wanting to try this place but haven't made it yet. Is it any good? What do you recommend?

Fresh Catch or Crispy Catch?

I meant Crispy Catch. Fresh Catch was a place I used to go to as a kid

I would say it is about average. The way I would describe it is like this. I think Cane's does chicken fingers much better than Crispy Catch does fried fish and shrimp. Take that for what its worth.

That place is EXPENSIVE for what you get. I bought lunch there for me and my wife and it was $20+. You're better off going to Tony's or getting a fried catfish plate lunch at Matherne's, Bet-R, Rouses or probably half a dozen gas stations in North Baton Rouge.

I liked their fish tacos. The blueberry lemonade is awesome.

I think it is supposed to be the raising canes of fried catfish. While many have their opinions on canes, you can't say that is a bad business model.

Excellent service, clean, big screen TvS and good food. Thin catfish and shrimp are very good.

So $10-11 a head?

That is far from expensive.

It is way over priced.

Go get a fried catfish plate from a grocery store. Much cheaper and better with more choices.

ETA: Like timbo said.

I thought it was good. 10-12 bucks a head is accurate. Cheap for me but everything is relative. Half price of Parrain's and better fish.

$11 will get you a bull shite Catfish box at Crispy Catch

$16 will get you a huge Catfish plate with Salad, Dirty Rice, Fries, and Hush Puppies at Parrains. ( 3 x as much food and better fish)

It might be better tasting or whatever but they both are farm raised catfish.

I enjoy it very much. Very clean place. Very friendly service. And good food.

Would be better suited for different areas of town that are more conducive to a drive through eatery. I could also see this doing well in Central, DS, Zachary, etc.

I'll take that any day over wild catfish that taste like river-bottom mud.
