This is the best place for catfish!! Staff were speedy, friendly and helpful. Salad was crisp with just the right amount in the bowl. Hushpuppies are the best ever! I would give this restaurant more than 5 stars and I highly recommend it to anyone. Great for business or family and is certainly children friendly.

Vernon's has been around since 1984 and each time I've been over the years, nothing has changed. Which is a very good thing, because you know what to expect. Local charm, delicious catfish and hushpuppies (and everything else on the menu!), amazing peach cobbler and sweet tea worthy to represent the south. The ambiance is "Kuntry" with attentive waitstaff, that... More

Hi, Amy! I gotta say that after reading your review, I'm a little surprised by your star rating. It sounds like you really like the place just for what it is, which is great to hear, but please let us know if there's something we could be doing to bump it up! It sounds like you've been coming to us... More

Excellent fried catfish . . . the best ever! Seafood gumbo, grilled catfish, salad, baked potato and pickled green tomatoes are all excellent. Large quantities of food. Love Vernon's!

Convenient, nice family restaurant, good food, nice selection of food. Service could be better. They were working short handed the day we were there.

Vernon's is a classic Texas good food, family restaurant. If you like fried catfish, this is the place. I've never had better. All side dishes are great. You will not leave hungry. Good place to eat.

It used to be great, but the cat fish is small and skinny, not their way of usually serving good fish. Service is ok, but usually you have to flag a server to get tea refills. The price is a lot for what you get. Picketed green tomatoes are good as well as slaw. Bread choices just average.

Sounds like you didn't catch us on our best day, Lynn. Apologies that you were underwhelmed by the fish this time, and I never want to hear that you had that much trouble getting your drink refilled. We think the prices are just right, but I can see how you wouldn't agree if the meal doesn't blow you away. Thanks... More

We went to Vernon's Kuntry Katfish because of an add we had seen and the parking look was full at lunch. The service was great, the food was a great value but the food was pretty average. I got the fried catfish lunch special. The waitress should have told me the fish had come straight out of the fryer. I... More

We live Vernon's and it is just as good as when Vernon was still there. The catfish is always fresh and cooked to perfection. I love all the goodies too. The service is always great and the food is consistently delicious.

What's life without some goodies? I'm glad you love the catfish so much, you've kept coming back for more -- Vernon would be proud. Thank you for this great review. We appreciate all the support, and we'll see you soon for some fresh catfish! All the best, Buster, General Manager More
