Catfish Parlour closing northwest Austin location after nearly 50 years

The owner told KVUE he is retiring.

AUSTIN, Texas — Catfish Parlour, a long-time Austin staple, is closing its northwest Austin location this week after nearly 50 years.

The owner confirmed to KVUE that he is retiring, so the location at 11910 Research Blvd., near US 183, will close on Saturday, Nov. 6. The location opened in 1973.

Catfish Parlour has two other locations, one on East Ben White Boulevard in South Austin and one on Williams Drive in Georgetown. Neither of those locations is closing.

Back in 2017, KVUE's Bryan Mays and Yvonne Nava took a turn frying up fish and waiting tables at Catfish Parlour. Watch that Take This Job throwback below:
