I wrote a good review of Ken's in 2012; however, after a visit yesterday, my husband and I will not go back. We went at 11:30 a.m.; the place had about 20 people seated. Service was slow; if the food is worth waiting for, I don't mind but we were disappointed. Ordered the three filet special, which used to be... More

We tried to eat here on a Saturday for lunch and they were closed. Which was fine because it looked super sketchy on the outside anyway. We tried to eat at 4 different Bbq places in marble falls for lunch and they were all closed.

Now you know what to eat at Ken's. This is the best catfish in Marble Falls but the hours are limited so lunch is your best bet. It's a small place so be prepared to wait. We got there a half hour before closing and had no wait. A nice choice of sides but I stuck with the fries and... More

Ken's has good catfish and good sides, but the service is so very slow. I am not sure the wait is worth it.

Living my catfish ! If u come during the lunch hr you will be lucky to find a seat. Typical sides, the main draw is the fish.

If you like good old fashion Catfish you will love this Resturant. My wife ordered the Kens special which was 4pcs of catfish, hush puppies. It came with two sides she got brown beans, and coleslaw. I ordered the large catfish dinner that had 6pcs of catfish, and hush puppies. I ordered double brown beans for my sides. All was... More

First - the hours had changed - it is currently closing at 2 pm. Call before going to make sure it is open. And get there as early as you can. It gets packed, and the wait for the food is lengthy. It is well worth it, though. I had quit eating catfish because in recent years, so many times,... More

The Fried Catfish is the only thing I go for although they have other items on the menu. The catfish is freshly fried to perfection. The wait time is a little long but that is because the don't start frying your fish until you order it. The sides are good but the catfish is special. The only issue with Ken's... More

This is home cooked food, and the fish comes with all the trimmings. The burgers are just like mom would make at home. This establishment is owned and operated by family members and the service is great.

I love fish, but not catfish, unless it comes from here. I don't know what the secret is, but I have never had better fish anywhere. I love the fact that they have healthy choices for the sides as well. Broccoli Salad, Cole Slaw, Green Beans, Beets, Cabbage, etc., but also fries and hushpuppies as well. They also make one...
