The food was great and the view overlooking the lake was fantastic. Highly recommended!!! One of the few places in the area to get a good steak.

Vaughn's has been around a long time and we have been going there for over 17 years when we are visiting our lake house nearby. I would like to comment on the total menu but I always get the fried catfish and my wife gets the catfish shrimp combo pate. These are all you can eat and that means I... More

Food was good, not a buffet, they bring it to you. Hush puppies, beans, relish, onion and slaw. Then you order your fish or shrimp or whatever. Clean restaurant and great view of the lake! Very good service, a little bit pricey, but good to support a good restaurant in a rural area. We will be going back soon!

First time here and it was good. Catfish was overcooked and hard--not sure if it was just a bad batch or if this is the norm?? I would never get that again. That's my only complaint. Everything else was wonderful. We had terrific service and The whole set up at the beginning was so good. The beans were perfectly spiced... More

Haven't been to this restaurant in over a year. It's still the same with good food and great service. A lot of the servers have been there for years which tells me that this is a good place to work and they like what they do. It shows in their service. They know a lot of people by name and... More

Very casual atmosphere. The food is good and plentiful. Fried catfish and shrimp, and the hushpuppies are yummy! SO yummy that they ran out of them when we were there! How does that happen?? Cole slaw is served family style. The waitstaff was very on the ball and helpful. Its right on the lake, and the restaurant has lots of... More

My wife and I eat here from time to time. We really enjoy good catfish and this place does have excellent catfish. Normally the wait staff is very friendly and courteous. But every once in while we do get a not so attentive waitress. But we still love this place and would recommend it.

Nice place to eat fish. The service and food is 5 star. They cater to seniors which we of course loved. When you turn off the Hwy. 21 at the sign just keep driving you will get there.

Vaughn's is an institution here in the Tri-Lakes area of NE Texas. If you want to eat till you pop, any of the All You Can Eat offerings are good. Otherwise, they are far too expensive. All of the little appetizers are nice; wait staff very nice, but nothing special about their Catfish or other dishes. I would give it... More
