The food was excellent and the service was great.. Everyone was so nice ......
Best fish for miles!!! Great food!!! Wonderful family running it!!!
Bill and I stumbled upon this friendly eatery last Friday night as we traveled north. Tabitha was our waitress and she took excellent care of us. We ordered catfish and shrimp and they were both delicious. The sides of beans, coleslaw, onion rings, sweet potato fries, and two different types of hush puppies filled us up. Then we heard about the fried pies! We split an apple pie and had to order some to go because they were so good!
We enjoyed the people and the food so much that we went back tonight as we head back south. Tabitha took good care of us again! Instead of shrimp I got the stuffed crab and catfish and I wasn't disappointed. Bill ate the cherry pie and I tried the coconut. Both were excellent.
If you want to be treated like family and have great food, this is the place to go!
Love this place. Don't leave without trying the fried pies
This place isn't convenient to anything except a few folks living or camping around Lake Millwood. About 10 miles from Ashdown and 30 miles from Texarkana, it's definitely worth the drive. We ordered the fried catfish. It comes with french fries, and a set-up of coleslaw, tomato relish, pinto beans & hushpuppies - all very good. You can order the catfish dinnner with 3 - 7 pieces. We ordered the 3 piece dinner to share, and paid $5 for an extra set-up. It was more than enough for both of us. The catfish filets were thin and crispy, just the way I like them, and very flavorful.
We Luv the fish bowl at Millwood Lake, have eaten there for years and take all our clients there with us! Food is non stop action, and flavor is off the chain, we are thrilled to have yall moving 2nd location into T Town, now we all wont have to drive as far and can eat w/ yall more than once a week! Thanks for opening 2nd location!! Mike at Millwood Lake Guide Service
My mom and Dad and my brother went last night and people were mean and made my mom upset tell her chest start hurting she couldn't even enjoy her Birthday. Ya need to make some of the people that were sitting down doing nothing they need to be up working not sitting and visiting with coworks. And the food was cold to
Food is excellent, service is fast and friendly ! Family orientated, relaxing atmosphere ! Will definitely be interested in visiting again !
The Texarkana Fish Bowl is Fantastic in every way!!!!!GREAT food!!! Fantastic service!! Friendly folks. Down home atmosphere! Owners are so nice to every customer!! They never meet a stranger! If you haven't tried it----what's standing in your way???????
OH MY GOD!! This food is a gift from the good Lord!! I do believe it will become a weekly stop!! Amazing people with an welcoming atmosphere and don't get me started on the prices!! If you don't give them a try then your a damn fool!!
Went last night with friends food excellent the fish is always great the fried shrimp was mouth watering. My friends had a steak very good and tender will be going back
We had a Fantastic meal tonight & will definitely return! Gayle had catfish that was tasty & cooked just right. I had their rib eye & it was seasoned perfect & cooked with just a line of pink thru!! Our waitress was attentive & atmosphere was very friendly
Just had the most amazing dinner with the Hubby and daughter, Tara at The Fish Bowl in Texarkana. Our waitress, Carly was so sweet and took great care of us. Our Chef, Camille came out to verify how we wanted our fish cooked. (We like it thin and crispy). She cooked it perfectly. It was out of this world. The Owner made a few stops by our table to make sure all was well and brought us a taste of the Cajun catfish (he noticed Tara had peppered her fish). We will certainly be going back regularly. Thank you Sir, Carly and Camille for making our dinner an amazing experience!! Only one suggestion, You need to provide a Wheelbarrow to roll us to the car!! �
The food was great! We have been a couple times while we have been up there visiting family.
It is wonderful. I can't think of one thing that was less than fantastic.
Great family restaurant all you can eat cat fish and plenty of sides good deserts good menu
Great Fish and love all the fixings. Everyone is very friendly and are always on top of things.
Very good. Had the fish & shrimp platter. Coleslaw, beans, hush puppies, all good. Friendly service. Will definitely be back.
Great FISH!!! – The Fish Bowl is a little out of the way for normal eateries, but just try it once, you will love it. They have the best hushpuppies in the world, and my family and I try to go a few times a year, when we are all together.
Ok I have not had this kind of service anywhere in texarkana... 5 stars to the young lady that was our waitress, i am sorry i didnt get your name. 5 stars for the food it was very very good. I would also like to thank the owner i assume that was who came by and visited our table twice. It was worth the drive and the price. I can't wait till you are open in Texarkana. If the service and food are like it is in Ashdown we will have a new place to eat fish. 5 stars all the way around...
Outstanding side dishes. This included two different types of hush puppies. Although our hush puppies were lukewarm, they were still tasty. The fried catfish were hot and cooked exactly as I liked - corn meal breaded, golden brown, and crispy. Service was friendly and excellent with several frequent refill visits. Our meal value was good. Only suggestion for the restaurant is to add soft background music.
We took my Mother in law and father in law to eat for her Birthday, as always customer service was top notch and the food was over the top good. I am so impressed with the level care they provide. The Owner walking around talking to his customers is grade A in my book. Thanks Fish Bowl at Texarkana.
This is an amazing, outstanding family I count as friends. I, not only, celebrate their amazing food to enjoy, but I celebrate the Wren's as a family. Great group of folks right there!
The new Fish Bowl in Texarkana is one of the best restaurants in this area. The owners are friendly and aim to please each one of their customers . The service is fast and the waiters are polite. The overall atmosphere is pleasant and appealing. The food is absolutely the best. Please try the alligator! You won't regret it! If I could, I would give this restaurant a much higher rating! Love, love, love!
No more all you can eat, but that's ok. They have a 2, 3, 5 and 7 piece fried catfish dinner with all the fixens. Cole slaw, beans, hush puppies, green tomato relish, onions and French fries. I got the 5 piece, should have got the 3 piece. Wife got the shrimp dinner. 13 shrimp. Holy cow, that's a lot of food. It was all really good. The service was excellent. Would defiantly return.
TOP 5 RESTAURANT. I ve eaten at many seafood restaurants in my lifetime and this one is in the top 5. The waitress was very pleasant and attentive. The setup with the beans, cole slaw, green tomatoes and hush puppies was enough to fill most people up. The cole slaw is 2nd best to Popeyes and very fresh. Hushpuppies just right. Beans had some interesting and very flavorful seasoning. Now to the fish and shrimp.. the best I ve had ever. Then the large salad was enough for 2 people and full of cheese and bacon, not just lettuce. You got more than you paid for with this meal. $21 for enough to feed 2 hungry people then have a full takeout container. Nice little drive from Texarkana but well worth it. We will return. Oh I forgot the homemade fried pies. The owner gave us one to sample.. chocolate..and let me tell ya it was the most delicious item I ve ever eaten for a dessert.
Today I toured Heartland Catfish facility with Brandon Wren (Fish Bowl Owner). It's a state of the art facility, clean and the VP of Operations and Quality Control Department is unmatched. If there is such a thing as organic fried fish... This is it. And if you don't believe me... Look at their parking lot Thursday- Sunday. #fishbowl #eatfresh #homegrown
First visit tonight--excellent service and food was great! Super crisp catfish filets and lightly breaded fried shrimp --really able to taste the shrimp without any heavy coating or breading! Owner (or manager) came to table to introduce himself and ask how our meal was--from the time we entered till checking out, all staff were very friendly. THIS is what customer service looks like--well done!
