UNION, Miss. (WTOK) There's a restaurant in Union that's been open for less than a year, but it's been drawing rave reviews by those that eat there.

It's an old-fashioned, all-you-can eat place, specializing in catfish and shrimp. Union Station Fish House is the latest stop on County Road 11.
This main street location has served the downtown Union area in a variety of ways over the last 50-plus year. After serving several years as a bus station, the building was transformed into what was known as the Sandman Restaurant, a very popular eatery in its day.
The historic building was also a furniture store before owners Farron and Kayla Ingram purchased it last year and opened the Union Station Fish House back in January.
"When this town was a booming town, it was the place to be," said Farron Ingram, the owner of Union Station Fish House. "I've heard that a lot of the older people that come in and talk to us and we visit with them. They tell us how they hung out here as a kid."
The Union Station Fish House has been dishing out tasty food four days a week since opening, and they've become well-known for their Mississippi farm raised catfish and fresh shrimp from the Gulf Coast.
"All of our food is hand battered and we specialized in our Mississippi farm-raised fish," said Ingram. "We keep everything in the U.S. That's another thing that we focus on. If we can't get it in Mississippi, it at least stays in the U.S. As far out as we go is our gulf shrimp.
So if your appetite calls for an all you can eat seafood affair, head to Union Station Fish Camp, where you may learn a little history and you're guaranteed to leave full and satisfied.
The Union Station Fish House is open Thursday through Sunday. Catering and group events are offered. For more information, you can visit their Facebook page at Union State Fish House.
