After two runs in Columbia, Mississippi Fish Shack has moved back to Boonville. The Southern restaurant, popular for its corn fritters, fried catfish and frog legs, closed down its location at the Phillips 66 gas station on Ash and Stadium Boulevard about two weeks ago.
The restaurant started in Boonville in 2006. In July 2008, owner Kim Perry moved from Boonville to Columbia and opened on Broadway. Just over a year later, in September 2010, it shifted to its most recent spot in Columbia.
The restaurant is now on 2450 Main Street, Boonville, and is also located a Circle K/Phillips 66 convenience store. Perry told The Columbia Tribune that soaring food prices made it too expensive to run the business in Columbia.
