About Us

Roy’s Catfish Hut in Kinder, Louisiana is a dream come true for owners Roy and Lisa Marcantel.  Established in 1998, Roy’s has become one of Southwest Louisiana’s leading restaurants which prides itself in providing consistently superb food and exceptional customer service in a casual, comfortable, family-friendly environment.

Roy’s offers a wide variety of menu choices with a distinct Cajun flare.  Our catfish consistently receives accolades of “this is the best I’ve ever eaten”!  While its true catfish is our specialty, we offer many dishes of equal quality to satisfy any taste.  From our fried or grilled seafood, fresh pork chops, grilled chicken and mouth-watering steaks, you’re sure to find something to satisfy your palate.  Roy’s also boasts a fantastic salad bar with a generous selection of hand-cut, fresh vegetables daily!
