Ezell's Catfish Cabin in Trussville, April 2011

Ezell's Catfish Cabin is a seafood restaurant chain based in Birmingham, with locations in Bessemer, Calera, Auburn, and Columbus, Georgia.

The business was modelled after the famed restaurant operated by C. A. Ezell at his fish camp on the Tombigbee River near Lavaca, in Choctaw County since the 1930s. The first Ezell's Catfish Cabin was opened in Chunky, Mississippi by Ezell's sons, Charles and Joe. They soon expanded to several locations across the south.

Chip Sanders and his partners moved the former Ezell's Fish Camp restaurant from Pelham after it closed in February and a deal to keep it in Pelham fell through. The Trussville location closed in June, 2011.

On November 3, 2009, Agnew Hall, president of Ezell's, opened a second location in Bessemer in a former Golden Rule Bar-B-Q location. Hall's family started Ezell's Fish Camp in Choctaw County in the 1930s.

In January, 2013, Charles Matsos partnered with Hall to open a location in Calera in another former Golden Rule.
