The atmosphere is friendly and casual. The blackened fish, fish tacos and vegetables are always good. Love their hush puppies and pickled green tomatoes. The cobbler for dessert is excellent. I have never been disappointed.

Vernon's has been a Montgomery County staple for years. They have a wonderful lunch menu and their fried catfish cannot be beaten. I had relatives who had never had catfish or hushpuppies and I knew exactly where to go. They became believers!

Food was good. Service is slow. Lots of people at standard eating times (lunch, dinner) that make waiting in line likely. Waitstaff is normally very friendly.

I like good food at reasonable prices. You can not beat Vernon's. Sometimes we order a large plate and a small plate and share the large plate. It is not fancy but the food makes up for the fancy. The waiters know what they are...More

Country atmosphere, family-friendly, casual, come-as-you are place. Gets a little busy on special occasions and Sundays after church. The best fried catfish you ever ate, generous portions, and great pickled green tomatoes! Desserts are a must!

The food was undercooked and bland! That's just the popcorn shrimp! Nothing fancy! Been there twice. I won't go back! Service was good!

Vernon's is a good place when I am in the mood for fried catfish. Dress casual and bring an appetite.

They serve beer and if you go at lunch your beverage is included in the lunch special (not the beer).

Is this place big enough to accommodate a baseball team and families? approx. 30 people

I think so. There was a Lions Club meeting taking place while we were eating there and there were quite a few attendees.

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!
