MILWAUKEE — The Catfish Lounge has been around the north side of Milwaukee for 32 years. When the original owner, James Gladney, passed away in March, his son Darryl took over and he hopes to carry on his father's legacy.

"It's gonna be tough because he had a lot of people come here," Darryl said. "A lot older crowd, but they like me too, so I show them love and respect. I think its gonna be all right, but we are gonna miss him."

His grandson James said the big draw is, naturally, their catfish.

"We serve it Mondays, Fridays, and every first and third Sunday for Brunch," he said. "It's what really brings people. It gets people down here because of the name. I hear we have a special catfish."

Catfish Lounge is located at 3646 N Teutonia Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53206.
