Deanie’s Offers Special Catfish Lunch Deal throughout August

August is National Catfish Month, and Deanie’s Seafood’s Restaurants are celebrating all month long with a catfish lunch special available at all three locations. We will be offering a half Po boy or Catfish Plate with a side for $8.99 through the month of August. The special is available during lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday at all three restaurants.

Recognized as one of the best seafood restaurants in New Orleans, Deanie’s Seafood is known for its classic fried catfish, a staple of our Deanie’s Giant Seafood Platter. Deanie’s Seafood has served high quality U.S. farm-raised catfish from Simmons Catfish in Yazoo City, Miss., for more than 30 years. 

“We are proud to serve and celebrate local seafood from the Gulf, from certified Wild Louisiana shrimp, oysters, crawfish, blue crab and flounder to premium Mississippi farm-raised catfish that we have sourced from the same farm for over 30 years,” said Barbara Chifici, Deanie’s Seafood Restaurants proprietor.Catfish-Special

The U.S. Farm Raised Catfish 

Farm-raised catfish is one of the most affordable, environmentally sustainable sources of high-quality protein available to American consumers today. Catfish is by far the widest produced freshwater fish in the country, and farm-raised catfish is the largest aquaculture in the United States. Farm-raised catfish has been one of the top 10 most-consumed seafoods in the United States for the past 20 years. Ninety-four percent of all U.S. farm-raised catfish is raised in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi, and catfish contributes about $4 billion per year to each of the states’ economies, according to The Catfish Institute.
