I love this joint. 40 year old business, classic black LA institution serving delicious fried and grilled fish, with additional healthier options if that's your interest. Good quality, fresh, amazing homemade garlic dill sauce, and friendly management who know how to treat their customers. Go here, get fed, no regrets.

Fish is always fresh and Georgette, the owner, is always there with a genuine smile. You can tell she loves what she does and interacting with customers directly. I have a shrimp allergy and she always makes sure to cook my salmon separately. Love her salmon salad and the housemade dressing! Highly recommend.

Amazing, my kitchen away from home. We order grilled fish every week and have never been disappointed. The crab soup on Mondays is worth the trip; grilled catfish and salmon are favorites; medium crisp fried fish and whiting play well with summer meals and hush puppies with cole slaw on the side make my multi-generational family happy. Love the staff!

Visited on a Sunday evening and ordered fried catfish and shrimp combo with potato salad and collard greens. Added the peach cobbler for dessert. The food was perfectly fried and seasoned. Authentic southern taste. The people were really nice too. Will be back soon.

I love the art on the outside of the building! The most important part is the fish. Personally I get the Mrs. the fishes since I’m vegetarian, but the food always smells delicious. She tells me that the jumbo shrimp is amazing, and I casually believe her. I eat her fries and I become addicted to the seasonings. All in all it’s a cultural spot that is worth it.
