E'Town River Restaurant, catfish heaven!  - Photo by Rose Hammitt

Located right along the river front in Elizabethtown, Illinois, this floating fish restaurant is a mecca for visitors from all over. On a writing trip to southern Illinois I had the chance to try out some of there river and pond catfish and it was quite amazing.

It is hard to beat views of the Ohio River and the bluffs that border each side of the River. Historic Elizabeth town has a lot to offer with the oldest hotel, river front and the best catfish I have ever ate, hands down.

The Facebook page for the E’Town restaurant states, “Seasonal Fish Restaurant. Serving the best catfish in Southern Illinois and Western Kentucky. We catch it,cut it, and cook it. You will not find any fresher fish than here. We offer fresh river fish, as well as pond raised fish. There are many other items on the menu as well. We have salads, fresh tenderloins, hamburgers, Chicken breast – Grilled or fried. Also we have a variety of other things. Check us out. Beautiful drive and great accommodations.”

If in the area stop by, I will be coming back with my husband in tow and can’t wait! Call (618) 287-2333 for details.
