Salad was fresh. Chicken fried steak was a bit thin but very good. Fried shrimp was excellent. Onion rings were good....not great (lacked seasoning). Potatoes were the best thing on the table though.....vegetable of the day, fried potato wedges with bacon and peppers I think. Very good.

Mark and Sally Armstrong have been serving crispy catfish for many years in this riverfront location. The restaurant rises above expectations with its consistent, fresh-tasting fried catfish. Never greasy, never heavy, never muddy like so many other catfish restaurants. It's a casual atmosphere staffed by helpful, friendly staff. Grab a table by the window to enjoy the view while you're... More

Always try to make it in time for lunch. The fish basket is great, not greasy, the decor is perfect for a fish place and the service is wonderful. Reasonable prices for outstanding food. Enjoy visiting with other "local" as well as visitors. Warm and inviting place.

A family member who lives in Kerrville took us here because we cannot get good catfish in San Antonio. It is right by the river and we were given a table with a lovely view and had a wonderful server, Carol, who made certain there was no dairy in catfish batter. We took advantage of the senior special (always available)... More

OK first let me say that we are from the land of bad to worse catfish (Austin, TX) and seized on the opportunity to eat at The Lakehouse when visiting Kerrville. Can't say anything about the rest of the menu as the wife and I both had catfish and were not disappointed. We both agreed that it was some of... More

This place was our favorite, so we ate here twice. Our waitress from Wisconsin, MaryAnn was extremely a very nice gal, with a great sense of humor, very helpful and easy on making our choices. Both time we ate lunch and found the food great and great quality. Plenty of choices, sides and the Iced Tea was really good! We... More
