Back in 1983 David and Sadie Ross started serving food from their now famous menu. Nearly a quarter century later, the catfish and cheese grits have been flying out of the kitchen. In fact, the dish has been named one of the 100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama Before You Die by the Alabama Bureau of Tourism and Travel for two consecutive years.
Not bad for a mom and pop start-up that began in Waynesboro, Mississippi.
Three years after opening and seeing a market in dire need of great food, David and Sadie moved their restaurant to Monroeville Alabama, where its headquartered today.
David's Catfish Restaurant has a wonderful staff ready to serve you in the classic Southern Charming David's Catfish Tradition.
Our batters, breadings and mixes are made from scratch daily. Likewise, our coleslaw and salads are made from the freshest ingredients available.
We proudly serve shrimp, crabclaws and oysters purchased from Alabama's Seafood Capital, Bayou La Batre, Alabama.
