Southern fried catfish is the specialty at The Crooked Hook. Try a heaping portion with lots of delicious trimmings.

Being a vegetarian, it's a bit difficult to find good food outside of the home. However, my father is new to Jacksonville, AR and wanted to go to The Crooked Hook (Catfish Restaurant), so I agreed. When we got a table and the waitress took our drinks, my father informed her that I was a vegetarian. She looked drastically confused as to why a vegetarian would be at a fish place, the poor girl, but it did make me worry as to whether or not I'd be able to find something to eat. Admittedly, there aren't any vegetarian main dishes (though, that's to be expected if you go to a fish restaurant), but there are vegetarian-friendly side dishes! I ordered a baked potato, fried okra, and coleslaw. Let me tell you, it was delicious! My father even let me try some of his hushpuppies, and those were just as good! The baked potato was a bit dry, but add some butter and you're the problem is solved! My father said that his catfish was good, but it tasted a little dirty. However, with bottom-feeders you shouldn't expect anything less and overall he enjoyed his meal, too. The waiting staff were very pleasant and we got our food in 5-10 minutes. We did get there before the dinner rush and after the lunch rush, though, so I'm not sure how it is at other times. All in all, it is certainly a place that we'd eat at again :)

The people that has owned and run the Crooked Hook for the last 20 years or so, sold the restaurant earlier this year. It was closed for remodeling around February, and reopened around April. It was bought back by the original owner, David Busch, who said he was going to keep it the same good place. WRONG. We went to 'THE HOOK', as it is called now, and the fish dinner wasn't worth having. Have heard other complaints from friends, but had to find out on our own. So, unless you live in Jacksonville, don't waste a trip to eat there. If you do live in Jacksonville, maybe you should go to North Little Rock and get something better.
