I'm always leery of restaurants that use a "K" in place of a "C;" it suggests "down home cookin'," as we say in the South. Most of the time these places deliver an inferior product and overcharge to boot. Thankfully, not so with Vernon's. Two in our party ordered the cat--excuse me, kat--fish; the other the crawfish etoufee; we had... More

My wife had the Catfish. It was good. Clean White fish. Light breading & not greasy. I had the Chicken Fried Steak. The meat had been pounded to a thin Waffer. Then it was over cooked to a crisp. Could not eat any of it. The did give us a 10 dollar off coupon for a return visit. My wife... More

Food and service is always great. Hush puppies are the best with the tomatoe relish. One of my favorite places to eat

Had a nasty BBQ potato their. Meat tasted old and was not palatable. I was not offered anything else. Service was slow. Even complained when leaving establishment and the gal at the front didn't care. Offered no apology. Can't believe this place is number 1 on TripAdvisor?

They start you with a complimentary plate of hush puppies, which were not very good. The pickled tomatoes were good! We tried the gumbo and it was okay, just way too salty to really enjoy. The seafood platter was a mix of hit and miss. The fried oysters were tasty (and I usually don't like them because they're soggy). They... More

Even though in an attempt to be cute almost every word on the menu is misspelled, the food is good and the staff hard working. I had shrimp since we were close to the gulf--5 very large shrimp with two sides for $15.00. There is a big sign that everything is fried in peanut oil. Anyone with a peanut allergy... More

Lunch specials until 2 pm. Lots of choices. I loved the green beans with bacon, mac and cheese, and the hush puppies. I decided on the chicken fingers. Meat was good but breading was just okay. It needed a little more flavor.

Family owned and operated, Vernon's Kuntry Katfish provides home-style cooking in a casual and comfortable environment.

Everything on our menu is cooked to order and made fresh every day - we guarantee consistent flavors and quality. We believe in high-quality products, large portions, and fast, friendly service.
