Sit on outside porch

Great food on the Lake. I find this restaurant is a bit nicer than Big Pines Lodge in terms of dress. You can still arrive by boat or car. Lovely restaurant inside, but I prefer to sit on screened in porch overlooking the gorgeous water. It's never too hot because fans are always on.

OMG!!! Ate at this amazing restaurant about 2 years ago with my sisters and my husband and I ate there over the past weekend when we came back to Uncertain. It was the best catfish I have ever had, so fresh and perfectly cooked. Pinto beans, coleslaw are to die for. I got onion rings and tomato relish and I... More

Awesome food! Probably the BEST cole slaw I've ever eaten. Meal comes with complementary beans, cole slaw and homemade hushpuppies. Very filling. You definitely get your money's worth. Both of us took a to go box with us. Scenery is awesome.

When in Karnack there are at least two good restaurants on the river where you can eat. This one is Riverbend and is the furthest distance from the main roads. Built right on the river you get a fantastic dining view for lunch or dinner. There are several slanted ramps that one needs to walk on to get to the... More

Waited 2hrs15mins for what amounted to be horrible service and mediocre food. Will not go back to this place.

We stopped here for lunch after a boat tour on the Caddo. I had blackened Catfish with rice and mixed vegetable while my friend had grilled redfish with slaw, beans, rice and mixed vegs. We had hushpuppies for the table. Our waitress was cute and friendly, the view was fabulous and the food was very good. Our only complaint is... More

Be sure to try the hush puppies. The catfish filets and cheeseburger are both wonderful! And so is the strawberry or peach frozen blended wine-arita drink.

Biggish place right on the riverbend with lovely views. Three choices of places to eat. The air conditioned restaurant, a screened in patio and an external patio. All seemed good ,we chose the screened patio to get the fresh air but avoid any risk of flying bugs. Typical quick service ,we chose the chicken which was well cooked and tasty.... More

If you are coming to Uncertain/Karnack,Texas area of East Texas . . . then, you are probably coming to see the glories of Caddo Lakes and not looking for a 1-Star Michelin Restaurant dining experience. But, yet, you have to eat lunch or dinner there. So, relax in the meantime and head out for the "Graceful Ghost Steamboat" for a... More
