Get the fried catfish. They make it AFTER you order it so it comes out hot, fresh and delicious. Lietrally the best catfish I've ever eaten.

Been a few times over the years & every time it is closed! Parents live out near the lake and we visit quite often with the grandchild. The reviews always look so great, but each time we try to give it another go it's not open. But driving by yesterday (December 31, 2016) we noticed that there was some remodeling/construction...

I don't know how anyone could not like this place. It is your typical, down home, nothing fancy, great local dining establishment. They're only open a few hours, and you better get there early, or you'll be out of luck.

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
