On a recent Saturday night, my daughter Joy and I, both hungry and bored, tried to figure out where to have dinner. Although Joy was craving Mexican food, I was in the mood for some of the best catfish and sweet tea east of the Mississippi! Needing a break from the ordinary, I decided to make the short drive to the town of Rossville for tasty home cooking and unparalleled southern hospitality at the Wolf River Cafe, just a few miles east of Collierville in Fayette County.
Upon entering the cafe, we were warmly welcomed by owner Susan Quasdorf and her friendly staff, who went beyond the customary "Hello. Can I start you off with a drink or an appetizer?" The hospitality of the staff and casual charm of the restaurant were a welcome change from a stressful week as the staff went beyond the call of duty to make each guest feel special. During our entire visit the conversation and service were completely focused on the patrons who dined there.
The food was predictably delicious, hot, and satisfying! Joy and I both ordered our favorite meal, the two-piece catfish dinner, which was preceded with a basket of hushpuppies and pickled green tomatoes. The meaty boneless catfish fillets were fried to perfection -- crispy on the outside and steaming hot on the inside. The steak fries and homemade coleslaw which accompanied the catfish were equally delicious. To wash it all down, we ordered the cafe's sweet tea with lemon, served in Mason jars. Sadly, we left no room for one of the many fabulous homemade desserts that beckoned to be devoured!
If you are looking for great home-cooked food and friendly service in a casual country atmosphere, then make the short drive to Rossville and dine at Wolf River Cafe. Not only do they have a great dinner and lunch menu, I'm told they have one of the best breakfasts around and that the pizza is to die for!
