What a delight!

If you enjoy reasonably priced seafood, here's the place. We started off with fried pickles and onion rings. Fried pickles---?? Onion rings--great! I had the Lakehouse shrimp---choice of grilled or lightly breaded---very good! It came with 3 sides, which I chose seasoned rice, green beans, and... read more

We ate here for dinner while visiting the area. The menu was ample and offered many comfort foods. We went with a Southwest wrap and fried catfish. There was a good amount of catfish but it was nothing special about it.

The food was "okay." I had the catfish and shrimp combo. There was nothing that really stood out. The service was really good.

I love the Lakehouse. The catfish is excellent and I crave the shrimp too. Service is alway quick & friendly. The fish and extras are always fresh and delicious.

The place was one of my favs in Kerrville. It has a comfortable down-home feel and look to it. I had the country fried steak with hushpuppies, coleslaw and baked potato. The serving size was very generous and I ended up taking half of my meal home with me. Our server, Erica, was a delightful young lady and she took... More

Best fried catfish we have had outside of East Texas. This is the only place we have ever eaten at when we visit Kerrville. Service is always good with a very helpful waiters. Maybe someday we will order something else, but we probably will not. To top it off you simply cannot beat the blackberry cobbler.

My husband ordered the chicken fried steak and I ordered the catfish from the lunch menu, and the vegetable of the day, which was cottage potatoes. Everything was wonderful. The portions are generous, even for lunch, service was quick, and the prices were very reasonable. Highly recommend.

We stopped here because I recall eating here in 2001. I recall the food was fabulous back then and was in hopes it did not change. I was surprised the food was even better than I remembered. My friend and I had the fried catfish, slaw, fried okra, and ice tea. The catfish was the best I ever ate, anywhere.... More

My family and I stopped here for dinner. It was good. I had the grilled chicken and the seasoning was nice and light so one can actually enjoy it. I'm sensitive to strong seasoning so I was really happy with this meal. Comfortable home-made atmosphere, really nice. We'll be back!
