I love going to Vaughns. This is a great restaurant with always delicious food. We normally reserve this place for important family get togethers it's a little pricy but not terribly bad for the great food being served.

Went a couple years ago and swore I would never go back. I should have stuck to my guns. The catfish, again, was extremely salty and way over cooked. When our server FINALLY showed up she said she would get some more. 20 minutes later...More

Vaughn's has the best catfish and wonderful atmosphere. It is located on Lake Bob Sandlin. Everything on the menu is delicious!!! The staff is super nice and friendly.

Great food, generous servings and excellent servers. You have to resist the urge to partake in too much of the pre-meal goodies they bring to the table. If not, you'll be requesting a to go box for most of the entree.

I had a salad which was very good. The view is not lake view. The company with me had the catfish and sides. the catfish was good, but it is a little pricey. The staff is very friendly and courteous. The restaurant is very clean.

This may have been the worst catfish I have ever eaten. It was way overcooked and dry. I asked for replacement and it was just as bad. I don't think I will eat here again.

As Brother Dave Gardner use to say, “You can’t do it again.” You can do something similar, but you can’t do something again. We returned to Vaughn’s after about 17 or 18 years. We remembered it from the days when I was an IT consultant...More

We have been eating at Vaughan's for about three years, and it is perfect every time! We have probably eaten there about 20+ times and have never had even one piece that had that "lake fishy taste". Vaughan cleans and trims the fish perfectly, removing...More
