Wonderful Fried Chicken Sunday Lunch

Stopped here on our way to Round Top for the Antique Fair. The Sunday special is 3 pieces of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans and yeast roll, oh, and a drink for $9.98!!! Some of the best fried chicken I've ever had and the broad river views are beautiful in this hill country setting. We... read more

The fried chicken special is delicious and a bargain. You can also enjoy the fried catfish which is the best ever. Service is fast and friendly by staff that's been there long term. If you come to Kerrville The Lake House is a must.

After eating there we couldn't believe the positive reviews. Fish was just ok, fries were cold, beans were funny tasting. Would not return.

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. The wait staff is always attentive and quick to respond to your needs. I don't think there is a better view from any restaurant in Kerrville that is better unless it's another place... More

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!
