Grampa's Catfish House was originally started in 1970 at 1218 Mission Road in North Little Rock, where it became about two things: Great Food and Family. Family has always been the center of Grampa's. When Paul Kirsch and Nate Townsend purchased the business in 1981, they kept core of Grampa's centered around this concept.
Over the last 35 years, Grampa's has gone through many changes. The biggest change being the closing of Grampa's in 2012, due to the sky-rocketing cost of catfish. Fast Forward to 2016, when Nate and his oldest son, Scott have brought Grampa's back to it's hungry patrons. Grampa's once again has reinvented itself. Between Scott and Nate's love for food and the passion for the Restaurant Industry, they have created Grampa's Catish & Seafood.
This new Grampa's will feature the classic tastes that patrons will remember, such as: the delicious US Farm Raised Catfish, tasty Cole Slaw and our famous Hushpuppies. Scott has been working on receipes for some new dishes. For example, he's brought in some Salmon and Mahi Mahi dishes and spent quite a bit of time building his own take on the Crab Cake. With addition of these new items, brings forth changes to how kitchen prepares its dishes. Gone are the days of the pre-made items, now come experience everything Hand-Made and Made-to-Order! This process will make things take a little bit longer to prepare, but it will certainly be worth the wait!
