Jackson's Catfish Corner

Catfish Corner’s return to the Central District after a 12-year hiatus is a huge deal. Talk to anybody who lived or worked in the area in the ’90s and you’ll likely hear stories of post-workday fried seafood or lunchtime Southern sides.

It’s clear that the new Jackson location is here to achieve the same goal as before: to serve the neighborhood delicious comfort food.

The nine-piece, half-pound catfish meal is the first thing to order if you want to see what made folks so heartbroken when they originally closed in 2009. The dredge has a light dusting of cornmeal, which really lets the tender catfish shine, unlike puffier beer-battered versions elsewhere. To top it off, there’s plenty of table and booth seating. Put this counter-service spot on your list to bring large groups, like your fantasy basketball league or your cousins and their six screaming children.
