Mike’s Catfish Inn has been in the same spot for over 35 years, and Mr and Mrs. Sumrall ensure they are not moving any time soon. Long before the restaurant took roots in the community of Amite, it began as a dream in Franklinton, and Mike Sumrall worked toward making it his reality.

Like most dreams, it started as something completely different, a job in the steel mill, working for Winn-Dixie, and milking in the morning. All served as building blocks, financial endeavors undertaken to save what money he could to start his own restaurant. In 1980 that dream became a reality. Mr. Sumrall leased the old Thrift-Town Pharmacy building and opened Mike’s Catfish Inn.

To this day, Mike's Catfish Inn serves as a landmark in the city of Amite and have served and satisfied many customers far and near.
