Consistently Good Food

I visit The Lakehouse on a semi-regular basis and always can count of the consistently good food. The portions are ample, tasty, and the selection is good.

Sunday is the day to go. That is when their special is fried chicken. The chicken is moist with a crisp outer skin. Waiting line can form after the church crowd arrives but it moves swiftly. The baked catfish is one of my favorite dishes.

First time at this restaurant and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Had the 4-piece catfish filet dinner with fries and salad. Salad was fresh with a good dressing, fries were so-so (frozen) but catfish had a very good batter. Fish tasted fresh and was crispy with great flavor. Served piping hot with tasty tarter sauce. More than filling. Great service... More

Cannot beat their catfish and sides. Prices are more reasonable than similar area competitors. Staff is always helpful and cheery. Nice view of lake.

A very friendly and lively waitress is what stands between an average and a poor rating. Well done her. But in reality the food is no great shakes and not good value for money. It needs a lift.

We picked the restaurant because we knew it had a view and the food did not disappoint us. We had clam strip basket and popcorn shrimp platter with 3 delicious sides. Less than $20 and comfort food at it's best!

WE hit them with a group of 46 people right after the lunch rush at 1:00 in the afternoon...and they were still able to accommodate us, and get us out by 2:30. Everyone really enjoyed the down home cooking, and the prices on the lunch menu were really reasonable. You get a lot of food, the service is good, and... More

For those who enjoy a nice country style meal, this is your place. The restaurant overlooks the Guadalupe river.

I have been dining here monthly since 2002. I also have had fried catfish in other dining establishments in other states ( OK, AR, NE, KS and TX). For overall dining experience, quality and quanity, and service this place is the very best. Extremely friendly staff, consistently excellent entries and sides, you just can not do better than Kerrville's Lakehouse.... More
