CATFISH CULTURE

Celebrate National Catfish Month With Simmons Farm Raised Catfish and Cock Of The Walk Restaurant!

Farm-raised catfish make up more than 50 percent of the United States aquaculture industry. It's the largest farm-raised seafood product, by weight, produced in the USA. The farm-raised catfish industry employs more than 10,000 people and contributes billions of dollars to the national economy every year. U.S. farm-raised catfish is sustainable, environmentally friendly, nutritious, available all year long, and — most importantly — delicious! These are a few reasons the month of August has been designated National Catfish Month, honoring the hard work and dedication of the people and the high-quality products that comprise our incredible industry.


If you're a catfish connoisseur, you already know that Simmons Farm Raised Catfish and the state of Mississippi lead the pack in this unique American industry. Our dedication and commitment have been reflected in the superb taste and consistent quality of our products for over 40 years. If you need convincing, you can see for yourself by visiting Cock Of The Walk Restaurant and enjoying a delicious Simmons catfish dinner this month!

Cock Of The Walk, A Distinctive Restaurant With A Unique Name

In the early 1800s, Natchez “Under the Hill” in Mississippi was a gathering place for the Keelboatmen bringing goods and supplies down the Mississippi River on their way to New Orleans. Each boat had its own “champion” fighter, and when two boats met it was the custom for these champions to fight for the honored title of “Cock of the Walk”— the “Best of the Best.” In the late 1970s, some folks got together at that historic site in Natchez on the Mississippi and developed a combination of southern-style recipes to complement their specialty of golden fried catfish. The name of “Cock of the Walk” was reborn — the “Best of the Best.”



Cock Of The Walk's casual rustic atmosphere and service personnel attired in period dress of the riverboat era will bring you back to the time of the old riverboat days. Cock Of The Walk proudly serves Simmons Farm Raised Catfish at their locations in Ridgeland, MS, Nashville, TN, and Pocahontas, MS.
