Herb's Catfish: A Family Tradition


Deep in the heart of Oconee, Georgia is a little hole in the wall called Herb's Fish Place. 390 376Herb's is simple.They're only open Thursday-Saturday, you seat yourself, and use your menu as a place mat. They use all paper plates, plastic forks and there's a pitcher of sweet tea on every table.

Every birthday since I can remember, we ate at Herb's. It was our family's special place! So, this year we headed down there for B's belated family birthday dinner.

You have to get the catfish. Yes, they have an entire menu full of options that I'm sure are all delicious... But I just can't bring myself to order anything else.

I eat my grits with salt 99% of the time, but when I eat grits at Herb's, I just have to eat them with old fashion Cane Syrup... Absolutely perfect.


I hope you brought your cash, because they do not take credit cards. Oh, and they don't have phone either! (Yes, you read that right.)
