Was there as a family event. The catfish is the best I think I have ever had. No strong fishy taste. No grittiness to the cornmeal. The filet were perfect. They had jalapeño hushpuppy sticks that is incredibly amazing. The green tomato pickled relish was to die for. You can not go wrong taking your time to enjoy Vaughn's catfish... More

Love the sunset views and the all you can eat catfish! If you're in the mood give their steak a try too, it's delicious! Moist grilled chicken breast is great and daughter loves the grilled cheese on Texas toast!

Drove down from Oklahoma for the weekend. Both ordered all you can eat catfish. The beans, coleslaw and hush puppies were great. The catfish and fries were seasoned perfect.

Wonderful all you can eat meal. It was delicious and our table had a great view of the lake. Very reasonable price for what you get. If we lived up here, this would be a regular stop for us. The staff were kind and pleasant. Great food and clean restrooms.

Vaughns is a wonderful restaurant on the banks of a beautiful lake. The views are really nice. That said, the ambiance is lacking given the price. The wait staff has always been friendly and we have never left hungry or disappointed.

Thursday night is "Old Folks" night. Senior discount. Tammy is a true gem. The food is always great but I'd go just to see her smiling face. Servers are great. Just a family place with good food. Catfish is served several different ways. Good oysters and shrimp as well.

My boys and I eat here at least once a month. I love the fried catfish. It tastes just like my dad used to make it. It is my favorite restaurant in Mt. Pleasant! I love the owner she's very nice and friendly. Staff has always been good to me too (well the waitresses that have waited on us).

The Catfish is very good and the trimmings are even better. I have on. occasions when I'm not especially hungry, ordered only the setup for $5 or $6. The service is typically good, but may be slow if they get busy.
