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.

Excellent Fried Catfish. They only use Peanut oil here. Really good lunch specials. With dinner menu they serve complimentary hushpuppies with pickled green tomatoes which are really good.

It has been a while since we went to Vernon's and we got the same results as many times before, slow service and no one checks to see if you need anything.

Sorry to hear the catfish isn't your style! That said, we would always want the service to be some of the best in town. Thank you for speaking up about your experiences when it wasn't -- I'm going to take this to the team so we can talk about how we can be better in the future. All the best,... More

My wife's 2 brothers and nephew & girlfriend visited a couple weeks ago and we took them out to Vernon's. The wait for table was a bit on a Saturday evening but well worth it. Fried catfish, cole slaw, fries & hush puppies out of this world. Don't miss it !! Service awesome !!
