A locally owned restaurant that has been under renovation for several months at a former Pizza Hut location at 6020 Old Troy Pike in Huber Heights is now open.

Catfish Fish & Chicken & Shrimp opened Thursday, the restaurant shared on its Facebook page. The restaurant has indoor seating and carryout and will serve a variety of fried fish, shrimp, chicken dinners and wings, hush puppies, okra, mushrooms and cauliflower, the restaurant’s founder, Emad Tuama, previously told us.

Tuama has worked at other restaurants, but Catfish Fish & Chicken & Shrimp will be his first solo venture, he said. It will employ five or six people and will be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.

There has been a bit of a restaurant boom going on along State Route 202/Old Troy Pike. Farther north on the street, near I-70, a Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers is now open and a Chick-fil-A is in the works.
