Beaver Creek Paylake and Fish Fry is nestled in the valley just above the creek and below the spring. The scenery alone is worth the trip! Limestone bluffs are on the north, and sandstone bluffs are to the east. The high road winding along the bluffs edge makes for a breathtaking view of the meandering Beaver Creek and the surrounding countryside as you make your way to the lake.

The Fish Fry restaurant serves a variety of seafood items including our own fish right from the lake! The catfish is caught daily from the spring tank, and prepared fresh as you order. If you're not hungry for fish, that's OK! We offer a large variety of seafood options including crab legs, frog legs, alligator, shrimp, tilapia, calamari and a few other options that we are trying to perfect!! Seafood not to your liking? We also have a large selction of burgers, salads, sandwiches, and of course, home-made pies. The real crowd pleasers are the two outdoor patios that are right above the water's edge.  Don't worry about the weather.....we have plenty of indoor seating, which was added last season. If you are looking for a home cooked meal and/or an easy place to take your whole family to fish, then come to Beaver Creek Paylake and Fish Fry!
