Reel in the best in family entertainment at the Catfish Bowl directly off of Highway 21 in Pilot Knob. Enjoy a great meal while listening to our house band play some good ol’ down home traditional bluegrass music. Watch as they "rosin up the bow", pick up the fiddle, and start noodling up and down the fret boards of the upright bass at speeds that tend to make you giddy. You will soon be tempted to join in while they're singing and playing one of the time-honored ballads or gospel favorites that our acoustic string band spotlights. Join in some high-spirited and lively fun at the Catfish Bowl every Friday and Saturday night from 4:00 to 8:30.
