We are not a restaurant review website, however, we do enjoy U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish when dining on our family vacations and short excursions throughout the year. We are based in Indianapolis, Indiana and are planning on visiting more states in the future. Below are comments from the catfish restaurants we've visited. If you have a catfish restaurant recommendation, we'd love to hear from you. Attention Restaurant Owners: If you would like us to visit your catfish restaurant and write a feature home-page article, please e-mail us an invitation!
