Family owned and operated, Vernon's Kuntry Katfish provides home-style cooking in a casual and comfortable environment. Just like walking into a family member's living room and having a relaxing dinner, Kuntry Katfish has the same homey atmosphere with its panel wood walls, carpet floors and personal touches. We also feature a large room that is perfect any event. Our large menu features many Southern favorites along with a broad spectrum of seafood (shrimp, scallops, oysters). Customer favorites include chicken fried steak, and of course, our famous katfish. Everything on our menu is cooked to order and made fresh every day - we guarantee consistent flavors and quality. We believe in high-quality products, large portions, and fast, friendly service. Whether you're having a casual outing with the family or you're grabbing lunch with co-workers, Vernon's Kuntry Katfish is the perfect place to go. Also be sure to ask us about our full-service catering!

Good thing y'all left room for catfish! Fully approve of the decision to close out the meal with our chocolate pie -- you guys did it right! Too bad you don't live closer so we can see you more often, but hopefully we'll get to welcome y'all back on a future trip to Texas. Thanks again! Safe travels back home,... More

Our party of 8 was seated promptly and greeted in a friendly manner by the hostess and waitress. The children were given placemats and crayons to keep them occupied during the very short wait for food and drinks to arrive. The complimentary hush puppies are good but spicier than the jalapeño poppers. The diners at our table selected a variety... More

Hi, Sally! Thanks to you and yours for letting us cook while you were visiting from Maryland! Sorry to hear that every single item wasn't a hit -- we usually hear great things about our fried green tomatoes, and of course, the catfish should be just right every time we make it.

The menu was interesting and lots of delicious options. The pickled green tomatoes and hush puppies were delicious. We knew it was fresh good homestyle cooking from the moment we walked by other's tables. There were smiles and it was a great meal.

I highly recommend the seafood gumbo. The fried green tomatoes were good too. My husband had the catfish and it was yummy.

Blackened and fried catfish are great. My favorite is the green tomatoes and all the veggies! Be sure to leave room for dessert - Good Pie.

I try to visit Vernons everytime I am in town, the food is consistently awesome. The staff bend over backwards to make sure your meal is fresh and your order is correct.

Thanks for coming to see us when you make it out here from Florida! I have to agree that chicken fried steak and catfish just aren't the same without a big iced tea. We'll be ready to serve up some more of your favorites next time you're around! Until then, Buster, General Manager More
