Food was wonderful. We ordered chicken fried steak and the catfish platter. Food came out hot and fresh. I suggest this place to anyone who likes homemade cooking!

i have had all you can eat catfish (I get the strips, not on menu, you have to ask for it, thin pieces of fish and crispy), I've had the catfish and shrimp dinner which is more than enough for me, and I get to take leftovers home. My husband has had the ribeye steak and he says it is... More

Husband and I were camping at Wall Eye park. Had to grab some fish! Food was wonderful, waitress was the best! Place was clean and great view of the lake! Right now the offer one free beer or glass of wine. They do not have a license from what we understood so you get one for free. Perfect to add... More

Good food, fast service and they keep the catfish coming. More than enough sides to distract you before the catfish comes out. You have to be in the area or on a designated trip to find this place. It is quite a drive if you aren't in that "neck of the woods". Worth the stop if you like all you... More

A bit of a drive out in the country but well worth it. Sits on the east shore of Lake Bob Sandlin making for beautiful sunset views across the lake. All you can eat catfish (fillets or whole) includes two kinds of hushpuppies (both great), sweet coleslaw and spicy beans. We ended up with some handcut french fries as well... More

Vaughns is an excellent choice for seafood. They specialize in Catfish and Shrimp but have other things on the menu as well. They has set nightly specials, including all you can eat plates and seniors nights. A bit out of the way but worth the drive. We eat there almost weekly.

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!
