Living on the Gulf Coast, it’s not hard to find delicious, fried seafood. David’s Catfish House has endless options, from our famous fried catfish to our crispy popcorn shrimp. While these fried options are hard to beat, sometimes you want a lighter option. Whether you are looking for a healthier alternative or you just prefer non-fried options, David’s is not short of incredible options. 

Boiled Shrimp

If you’re looking for a meal that is both delicious and on the healthier side, our boiled shrimp dinner is a great option. Choose between 9 or 15 shrimp to indulge in fresh, Gulf flavors. This option comes with coleslaw, hushpuppies and your choice of cheese grits, fries or turnips.


No one does gumbo quite like the South, and David’s is known for our deliciously steamy and perfectly seasoned gumbo. As the cold begins to roll in, this option is even more popular. Order a cup to try it as a starter, or opt for a bowl and have it as a hearty meal. Whatever you choose, we know you’ll be impressed by the authentic, creole cuisine.

Crab Bisque

Another delicious option for soup lovers is our crab bisque. This sweet, succulent and smooth soup combines the flavors of crab and seasonings to create the perfect cup of warm, seafood goodness. Try it as a starter and choose either a cup or a bowl.

Boiled Shrimp Salad

Our boiled shrimp salad is one of our favorite healthy options. This salad comes with fresh and crispy lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, pickles and onion topped with a generous portion of our boiled shrimp and your choice of dressing.

Shrimp & Grits

Another southern favorite, our shrimp and grits are unbeatable. We offer a delicious blend of our smooth and savory grits, perfectly combined with our infamous boiled shrimp. Try it as a dinner and add two of your favorite sides!

David’s Famous Coleslaw

Last but certainly not least, our famous coleslaw is a perfect side to combine to your meal without adding anything fried. The fresh, crisp ingredients and tangy flavor are the perfect addition to any meal.

David’s Catfish House may be known for mouthwatering, fried seafood, but we also have a number of incredible options outside of these. From our boiled shrimp salad to our gumbo, we offer a range of options that allow you to choose something you’ll truly be satisfied with. Ready to give us a try? Visit one of our locations today!
