Everything you would expect at the "fried catfish" place. Portions were good. Catfish was fried perfect. Sides were excellent. American catfish are served here, none of that out of country, raised in crap fish farm stuff here. Wife doesn't like seafood so she had the chicken fried steak. No complaints from her. Quite a few options other than fish on... More

Actually I dont. But lakehouse, catfish,clams,shrimp plus coleslaw are fantastic once a year. 36.00 for 2 refillable meals. Great staff, nice to watch river. Secret. Go 4-6 pm not crowded normally. Otherwise, expect nasty tourist crowd.

I've been coming to the Lakehouse since I moved to Kerrville in 2001. I remember when it was Catfish King and the food was very good.

I thought this was an all fried place but had the grilled shrimp salad and it was very good. Good prices and lots of food.

I've been going to this restaurant for over 25 years, and I've never been disappointed! There catfish always arrives very hot and fresh, and I have an excellent baked potato and they serve everything on the side so you add as much of the ingredients as you would like. They offer daily specials, but I tend to just get the... More

Love their Sunday lunch special! Fried Chicken just like Grandma use to make with mashed potatoes and green beans withe a roll! Their catfish is great too. My hubby always gets catfish because he knows he is going to get the leg, just can't eat 3 pieces of fried chicken!!

We had fried catfish, sweet potato fries and fried okra for lunch. Everything was cooked well and tasted just right. We enjoyed our lunch here. After lunch, we watched a pair of swans on the lake which is just behind the restaurant, nice !
