Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The catfish, hush puppies and white beans were as good as any i have ever eaten and the Lemon Pie was the best slice of pie i have ever eaten. If you want catfish this is definitely the place to eat at in Memphis!

I visited this restaurant with my family. The restaurant was nicely decorated. I especially liked that fish that were hanging on the walls. I had the blackened shrimp Caesar salad which came with a cornbread muffin, a side of macaroni and cheese, and Sprite. I...tasted the hushpuppies that my husband ordered. Overall my salad tasted good. The shrimp tasted like it had a little too much salt, but overall was good. The cornbread muffin tasted good. The macaroni and cheese was okay. I expected more of a baked mac and cheese, southern flavor, but it just missed the mark. This was our second time visiting this restaurant. The first time was 2 years ago. I would return to this restaurant and would recommend it to friends and family.More

We tried the location off I-40 outside of Memphis as on our way to Little Rock as did not want to go into the hectic busy area on a Saturday. My Tractorman and I shared the 3 catfish plate and changed the sides to Okra...and cucumber salad. Everything was very tasty other than a couple of the fish sections where muddy. I guess we are spoiled with our restaurants close to home that use farm raised. The selection of craft beers was very nice. Can see if coming here again if find us in the area again.More

Cornmeal batter is as good as it gets. Okra and catfish were excellent. The Memphis cream cake set it over the top. Would be a regular if I lived in Memphis. Limited parking so may need to park on side street.

I stopped at the Poplar location a few years ago when I was driving through Memphis on a road trip and it was amazing. This time I was actually in Memphis for a few days and decided to try the Cooper Street location. It was...just as good as I remembered it being. Everything is perfectly cooked, seasoned, etc. We also ordered the Memphis Cream Cake, which was PHENOMENAL. I've never had that type of cake before, but I will be having it again. Prices are good, staff is very friendly, and the restaurant and bathrooms were clean. Only downside is that parking is very limited at this location, so expect to park on the street around the corner.More

This place was wonderful fish was fresh, seasoned well, served quickly and piping hot. I looked up this restaurant before heading to Memphis and it did not disappoint. Ordered catfish and shrimp for lunch with Zucchini and collard greens and came back for dinner and...had the blackened catfish salad. My husband had the catfish dinner for lunch and dinner with white beans and hush puppies. This with the sweet tea was a perfect combo. My husband got the pecan pie to go and said it was delicious. If we come back to area we'll be back.More

This is my FAVORITE Soul Fish location! They get me right every time. In addition to the great food, the service is classy and the establishment is in a wonderful location in the Cooper Young area. You’ll love sitting out on the patio and making...friends with strangers :) I usually get the whole fish plate with macaroni & cheese with fried okra. Let it bless your soul!More
