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

On visiting Kerrville we stopped and tried this spot. The staff is extremely friendly, the fried catfish light and tasty the Hushpuppies delicious! The view of the river, and the amazing service made this dining experience a place we will return to again and again.

We stopped in here for lunch on a Sunday with friends. The service was quick. The food was good. Just about everything with the exception of their salads was fried. That was a disappointment. The chicken fried steak and the fried clams were good. The portions are large.

We had the Sunday fried chicken dinner. We had to wait nearly an hour, so be prepared. The chicken was really good, but the mashed potatoes and green beans were nothing special.

The wife and I stopped here while in Kerrville, TX on April 10th around noon and had their Friday's catfish lunch special. It was so good and tasty along with everything else that came with it that we were so full by the time we finished eating. The price was right for the amount of food we had. We'll be... 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.
