Shrimp & Catfish

For many, The Ark in Riverside is a favorite spot to pick up a picnic lunch on the way to the lake or the races, but the restaurant is most popular for its fresh daily seafood and fried catfish. Locals enjoy the cozy roadhouse atmosphere and the combo plate of catfish fillet with shrimp. The catfish can be ordered whole or as fillets, grilled or fried. Whether heading to Logan Martin or to a NASCAR event, make sure and stop by The Ark for a hearty meal of seafood, hush puppies, fries and creamy coleslaw.
