We're surprised the tables and chairs haven't been breaded and given the hot-oil treatment in this joint, where much of the menu (look down; it's your place mat) comes as crisp as Jack jumping over the candlestick. Catch owners Shirley and Dewey on the right night and it's fry-factory delight with all-you-can-eat shrimp and fried clam strips (Mondays and Tuesdays) or catfish (every night). Or choose a great pair of gams - frog's or Alaskan snow crab legs, that is. Juicy baby-back ribs and a king-cut New York strip console the carnivore.
It's been around for a long time. It's sort of a divy place, but with good service, good prices and good food. All you can eat shrimp, cat fish and stone crab depending upon the night and season. It draws a large crowd, so a waiting line can be expected. The offer a sort of country western type of band entertainment on certain nights and seem to make a good effort to keep everything simple, with a very down to earth atmosphere and environment.
Soyka was a pioneer in the mid town area before the area really took off. Mark took a big chance and he continues to run a great restaurant. I actually proposed to my x wife there 8 years ago, great past and current memories, plus the food is always great.
Know what? You can eat frog's legs. Sure you can. They're yummy! They taste just like fish-flavored chicken. And they're bigger than you'd think -- these Catfish Dewey's frogs must have been strong jumpers, what with those quadriceps. Just a few words to the wise: Though Dewey's specializes in all things fried -- shrimp, fish, oysters, et al. -- eschew the hot-oil treatment when you order the legs and opt for sautéed instead. You'll be glad you did. Unlike the frog, of course. More »
