Catfish House Giant Cross

Don't be afraid to go in and eat either. It's buffet style, with a huge dessert bar. They also have an Andy Griffith private dining room. They'll let you take pictures provided it isn't in use.

The Andy Griffith Room features replica Mayberry vehicles and mannequins depicting the TV show's characters.

Big cross.

Large Cross

A large cross is on west side of Simpson Highway 49 going north. You can see it along the road as you are driving by, beside Berry's Seafood and Catfish House.
