We are a full-service family owned and operated restaurant established in 1984. We are dedicated to offering the finest seafood available for the best value. Our specialty is farm raised catfish, but our menu is quite diverse. We have a variety of all-you-can-eat specials like shrimp, stone crab, ribs as well as generous traditional portion meals.
The food was really good. Had blackened scallops, the all you can eat shrimp and the ribeye. Everyone was very happy with the meals. The service was ok. Waited awhile at the beginning but they may have been understaffed as most places seem to be these days. The server was very nice and she did bring my granddaughter a piece of cake with a candle and sang happy birthday. Over all we had a really good experience and will definitely be back! Thank you!
Great food great service great price wonderful people
We had a great waitress and assistant in training... took care of us very good!
Food was also yummy! :-)
Catfish Dewey’s does not disappoint! I come here for the all you can eat crab legs but honestly, just walking in transports you to another place and time. The waitresses were a little frantic but they never made us feel like we didn’t have to leave, the place was packed and they still provided top notch service! I continue to recommend this spot if you love a good bowl of piping hot crab legs or ribs. Don’t sleep on the hush puppies either!
All you can eat snow crab legs - how could that be bad?!
Best food in Ft. Lauderdale!! We have been coming here for 20 years. Won't come here without coming to Catfish Dewey's to eat. Look forward to it as much as vacation!!!
The Waitress was very excellent she was very attentive!!! She had a beautiful smile under her mask lol
The service was awesome. Food was fantastic!!! Ambiance was fair.
One of our favorite restaurants. raised in the south and love catfish. So happy to found this restaurant in South Florida.
Catfish Deweys is one of my favorite places to eat. For the 15+ years I’ve been going, every meal is perfect. The service, the size of the portions and the value is hard to beat
Food is always good. Wait was really excessive. Between waiting with a reservation and slow service me and my family was there 3 hours. We didn't take long to eat just took a while for food to keep coming from AYCE. perhaps they need to move to a bigger location.
Best Fried shrimp in Florida, great hush puppies, never go home hungry
Love this place. We go regularly. Coleslaw is amazing---so is all the food!
Had the ask the server 5 times for hush puppies and coleslaw.
Great food great service
Had reservation for 10. For 90th birthday party over 30 days
Got there and they tried to put us into Separate Tables. Our waitress was great but the head waitress was making all kinds of drama and a scene that we wanted to move two tables together for the party. Very rude and terrible customer service.
Huge sea scallops with big portions and very tasty.
Fantastic food! Loved the experience both nights we were there.
We were given the wrong information about the happy hour specials so we were not able to enjoy them. Five out of six of us ordered oysters and they were not fried well and no one liked them. The rest of the good especially the hush puppies.
The service was slacking!!! Food was good! Prices are ok for the value
Went there looking for seafood at a reasonable price. Loved the casual atmosphere and the food was great. As soon as we sat down they brought a bowl of hot hushpuppies and coleslaw. I ordered the seafood combo and was able to sample the fish, fried oysters, and scallops. The scallops were my favorite! Will definitely go back during a future trip to this area.
Did I mention the outstanding service? I should have!
Fantastic food!! Loved the hush puppies and I’ve never had better catfish.
Food was very good though it took approximately 40 minutes between placing our order and getting the food.
Soooo good. We went two times while here for vacation.
From the minute we walked in the door until the minute we left, exceptional! The service was exceptional and the food was fantastic. Food came quick and hot!
Food was delicious! Our waitress was wonderful, very friendly and helpful with the menu. We had an open table reservation and were seated on time.
I always get the fried shrimps and conch fritters you will never be disappointed there and the margaritas are so dang good
Took over 45 minutes to be seated after arrival with our reservation. It meant nothing to them.
It's average. Used to be so much better. The apple martinis are good
Love this place .
All you can eat Stone crab claws are awesome. Good service
Great ayce snow crab. A little expensive so definitely go hungry!
It was very good. Crab legs were great and so were the scallops. The shrimp with catfish blackened was great too.
Stone crabs were delicious and meaty! The best mustard sauce around!
FIRST TIME HERE AND IT WIL NOT BE MY LAST. IT WAS AWESOME !!!!
Best seafood place around here with the best prices I've already recommended it to all of my friends I will be going back there again next week
Our server Diane was kurt, almost rude. Did not keep track of our drinks or needs until we yelled her name. I did want a t-shirt and she was very helpful. Food took a bit but it was busy and that was not her fault. I aslo think they were short staffed and the chiefs did not help the indians so to speak. Short of team work. All you can eat stone crab was worth it!
On vacation from Cleveland, second time here for crab legs, excellent great service
Ordered grilled seafood combo w/snapper. Came fried. Breading was way thick,and everything was WAY over cooked.
We love celebrating with stone crabs at Catfish Deweys.
