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!

I have never been able to just walk right in and sit down at this restaurant. There is always a line, but usually just a short wait, to sit down to a delicious catfish meal with all the standard trimmings - including excellent hush puppies. The Katfish Kitchen has a casual and friendly atmosphere, with prompt service and good quality... More

This place was excellent. They served their hush puppies and relish until my eyes crossed! In the flavor of the catfish and oysters was delectable. If I had any type of feedback it would be to cut their fried green tomatoes a little thinner and season a little bit more. Other than that the service was excellent!

Have been here a couple times, once after boating on the lake all day. Very casual, friendly staff, and the food is standard down to earth type stuff but is delicious. Family members got shrimp, catfish, pork chops and everything was excellent. Will definitely be back a lot. Many in our group liked the hushpuppies although I like them sweeter... More

Pretty extensive menu but we were told catfish,catfish, catfish. Okay. So we ordered the catfish. Fried to perfection and well seasoned. Huspuppies were some of the best we have had, and we are from Louisiana. The sides were good and the green tomato relish was excellent. We got there early and they fill up fast. Waitress was wonderful, great service.... More

There may be a line to get into this popular spot but that's because people know what they are going to get. I get a small fried catfish plate almost every time and usually have enough left over for dinner or lunch the next day. Their red beans are a little too good and when mixed with hushpuppies I have...
