Mane Street Fish House, a restaurant offering southern favorites, is opening a second restaurant in Bastrop tentatively on Tuesday, June 5.

Owner Kenny Scott has been in the restaurant business for five years. He started Mane Street Fish House in Monroe with a friend and now runs it with his wife, Laurie. He and his wife have been running the Monroe location for four years and recently got the opportunity to start a new one in Bastrop thanks to the owner of the Magnolia Shopping Center.

“Everett Stagg approached me and asked if I'd be interested in moving down here,” Scott said.

Located on 661 East Madison Ave., Mane Street will have a variety of homestyle dishes including fried fish, burgers and roast beef as well as side dishes like mashed potatoes, corn and black eyed peas. They will offer dine in or take out, as well as a kids' menu and various desserts.

“Its going to be southern home cooking type stuff,” Scott said.

Of course their fish is the most popular dish and what they are known for. They offer catfish that is local pond raised.

“It's our flag ship, you might say,” said Scott.

The restaurant will be open Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Friday to Saturday from 11 a.m to 9 p.m. It will be closed on Mondays. There will be daily specials as well as a menu.

Sunday will feature a catfish buffet, Tuesday through Thursday will feature a menu and three daily specials and Friday and Saturday will feature a menu as well as daily and nightly specials. Fish will be available each day. The buffet will only be available on Sundays.

It will be a place with a friendly atmosphere which everyone can enjoy.

“We want a family atmosphere with a good meal, a good time and good friends” Scott said.

The Bastrop Chamber of Commerce has extended its congratulations and welcomes the restaurant to Bastrop. The community, as well, looks forward to a new place to get a homestyle southern meal.

Mane Street Fish House is excited to open its doors and welcomes everyone to come by and enjoy a good old fashioned meal with family and friends.
