The Country Squire - Catfish and BEST hushpuppies!

This little restaurant is unassuming and in a little town close to Pickwick Dam in Iuka, Mississippi. We started going there about 20 years ago. They did not have a menu to pass out then, only one on the wall. They did not need it! People know what they want when they go there. It is advertised as a steak and fish restaurant and both are excellent. Catfish is whole or boneless filets(kids love these), ribeye steaks are cut by your specifications and grilled by the owner's son ( he has been doing this since I believe high school). The best part, by far, are the hushpuppies. They are small, round and slightly sweet. NO corn, NO onions, just small balls of perfection. I could make a meal out of these! Good salad bar, also. I look forward to going there everytime I am at Pickwick Lake!

    Smiller,

    For those of us not real familiar with Mississippi (other than the Gulf Coast), can you give us a bit more on the location of this place? Hours? Prices? etc

    Thanks, AL

    Smiler, sounds like a real winner. I do love hushpuppies and your description had my mouth watering....Will try if when in the area.

    I believe this is a little town located on the border of Tennessee and Mississippi. I have never been there although I have traveled on the routes close to there.

    I may be close to there this week and if I can, I will give a report on my thoughts.

    This town is in the Pickwick Dam area, close to the Tom-Bigbee waterway. Other towns nearby are Savannah, Tennessee and Florence, Alabama
