Five Words: Calvert City's Willow Pond Restaurant
Delicious White Beans, Red Pepper Relish, and Vinegar Coleslaw
If you’ve ever eaten at Willow Pond in Calvert City, Kentucky, you know how right I am when I say the White Beans with Relish and Vinegar Coleslaw pictured above are even more delicious than they look.
The same can be said for the baked potato, hush puppies, and blackened catfish pictured below. The Calvert City Aurora Pond (as well as the Willow Pond in Aurora, Ky) have great food, reasonable prices, and friendly servers. I’m also blown away – time and time again – by how fast they are.
It always seems like we’re diving right into our delicious food as soon as our server takes our order. They don’t just have ninjas in their kitchen, they have ninjas in sneakers!
Blackened Catfish and a Baked Potato
On our most recent trip to Calvert City’s Willow Pond, I ordered Blackened Catfish with White Beans, a Baked Potato, and Vinegar Coleslaw. I keep wanting to try the mayo version of their coleslaw, but the vinegar coleslaw is so ridiculously delicious I dare not walk away from it.
Their white beans are out of this world good. They’re delicious even without the amazing red relish available on each table – but me and the relish have a thing going and, again, I have no intention of walking away.
I normally order the fried catfish (which is so amazing a poem should be written about it.. heck, even a song…) but this time I went with their Blackened Catfish. It was very, very good. The seasoning was perfect and the fish, themselves, were big, fat, and juicy.
White Beans and Hush Puppies
My husband actually ordered steak this time and I’m here to tell you the flavor was a TKO – total knock out.
Calvert City’s Willow Pond’s motto should be, “If we’re going to make it, we’re going to make it delicious.”
The next time you’re in the Kentucky Lake, Lake Barkley, and Land Between the Lakes area, you just HAVE to eat dinner at Calvert City’s Willow Pond. You won’t regret a moment OR a bite.
Heck, even their sweet tea is Heavenly.
