I have been eating there since ole Vernon was running the place. Now that he has passed, nothing has changed with Buster and Mary. You cannot beat the lunch menu. Price is right, service is good, and the food is excellent.

This one kind of made me giggle; if it wasn’t for the ginormous sign on the side of the highway, I likely would have passed by and not given the place a second look. It resembled an old farm house, so I definitely didn’t have dinner in mind when we drove by. However, my husband had eaten there before and... More

Great place for lunch. Home cooking everyday. Catfish speaks for itself. Don't miss the fried green tomatoes. Been eating here for years. Very consistent. Family owned and operated. A line getting in on weekends. You might need to share at lunch if you intend to work later.

The catfish is great! There really is not anything on the menu that isn't good. They have great lunch specials and the service is wonderful! Very family friendly.

Great food, awesome service, and nice atmosphere!!! Wait staff treats you like family members when you walk in and while they serve you! I don't think there's anything on the menu that I haven't had and my two favorites are the fried catfish (naturally!) and their chicken fried steak. My only wish is, is that they serve their AWESOME cornbread... More

We moved to Montgomery 6 months ago and this restaurant is now one of our favorites. Nothing fancy but consistently good food and good service. Thank you Taylor for the great service today and thanks to the kitchen for the yummy food.

Everything I expected. The servers were friendly and the service was good. The fried things were done well, not greasy or overcooked. Prices are very reasonable. Perfect for those evenings when I don't want to cook.

I believe it was in September that I gave Vernon's a harsh review over a terrible lack of service on a Saturday at about 3 p.m. The owner answered and I am hoping he checked into the issue and fixed it. He appears very responsive. We have been going to Vernon's since 1990 when we moved to Conroe. Mostly for... More

Fried, fried, and more fried. But it's all good. Hamburgers too. This restaurant has been around for a long time. If you're concerned about your cholesterol, don't eat here. If you want some good down home cooking, this is the place.

Description
Family owned and operated, Vernon's Kuntry Katfish provides home-style cooking in a casual and comfortable environment. Just like walking into a family member's living room and having a relaxing dinner, Kuntry Katfish has the same homey atmosphere with its panel wood walls, carpet floors and personal touches. We also feature a large room that is perfect any event.

Our large menu features many Southern favorites along with a broad spectrum of seafood (shrimp, scallops, oysters). Customer favorites include chicken fried steak, and of course, our famous katfish. 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.

Whether you're having a casual outing with the family or you're grabbing lunch with co-workers, Vernon's Kuntry Katfish is the perfect place to go. Also be sure to ask us about our full-service catering!
