T.C's Fish Camp served its first piece of fried catfish on Friday night at its new location off Old U.S. 45 in Marion.
Eastridge, along with his partner, Tommy Covington, recently relocated the restaurant from Lauderdale and expanded the menu.
But fish is not the only thing on the menu.
The daily buffet always features four meats, eight vegetables and two desserts including the restaurant's famous buttermilk pie all for $5.95 on weekdays and $6.95 on Sunday.
Or you can order directly off the menu. Steaks include a 12- or 16-ounce rib eye, a 16-ounce T-Bone and a 6-ounce filet. Steaks range from $12.95 to $18.95.
Dinners include hamburger steak, shrimp, oyster or steak-on-a-stick ranging in price from $7.95 to $9.95. All are served with your choice of potato, salad and bread.
Appetizers include nachos and cheese, spicy wings, homemade seafood gumbo and fried dill pickles.
Customers can dine-in the main dinning room, which is highlighted by cedar wood floors and walls, or enjoy the breeze on the restaurant's front porch.
But it's the fried catfish and hush puppies that bring in most people.
Eastridge said he leaves all the cooking up to Boyd.
