Recently stopped for lunch at the Lakehouse - country food and nice selection of choices. I had the fried catfish which was very crisp and delicious with fries and hushpuppies - very enjoyable. Another had the chicken fried steak and Okra - also tasty. the other had the tossed salad with fried shrimp - everything was enjoyable with a nice... More

Gods food and service. Great view over a wide section of the Guadalupe River in the middle of Kerrville. A fried food heaven. To be fair we ordered Gumbo for appetizers and they were not delivered before the main course arrived, which was a blessing in disguise as we all left content (stuffed). Would like to have tasted the gumbo... More

The Lakehouse is pleasantly situated on the bank of the Guadalupe River. The staff treats you like family. The food is comfort food. Their catfish is excellent, but so is the meatloaf. I strongly suggest if you are in Kerrville that you try this restaurant.

Excellent food for a great value. Stopped by here on the way to Hunt, Texas recently and loved their fried shrimp. Nice country restaurant. Great service.

While on a business trip, we decided to give this place a try. Really glad we did! Great location right on the river. Very quiet, but very good! Probably some of the best fried fish and chicken fried steak we have had in awhile! Plenty of iced tea was provided! The locals were there dining, so this was a great... More

The establishment was visited on July 4, 2015. The family was greeted at the door and escorted to our table. A wide assortment of seafood is available along with some standard American fare for those who aren't into fish. Kids menu available. I remember my Mom telling me years ago, to get the pinto beans. They are still good. Be... More

I grew up on Howard Johnsons fried clams as a kid and only found the small scraps at some chain restaurants. These guys have the bigger clams and lots of them in the clam basket. My wife likes their catfish and the side dishes are way more than anyone can finish. We have been there many times of day and... More

We stopped in here for lunch on our way through town. Other than being loud, I can't say anything was bad, but the food was nothing special.

I love the beans here and always get them when I visit. You can't go wrong ordering the catfish or the popcorn shrimp. There are also baskets that you can order which are inexpensive and have plenty of food on them. The only complaint I would have is that sometimes you have to wait a little while for a table,...
