Our History


Serving the best seafood since 1990, Catfish Country has the best southern style seafood you can find in Polk County! Located on Highway 98 in Bartow, FL, we are just a short distance from anywhere in Polk County.

We at Catfish Country feel there are only two places to relax and enjoy a good meal in a friendly and courteous atmosphere: your place and ours. Welcome to ours! From the moment you walk in tour door, you will feel like you’re home and that’s the way we like it.
