It's been a few months since my last visit and I stopped off with a friend for take-outs. We devoured the catfish and fries and argued about the coleslaw. Our only problem with this meal was that they are soooo stingy with their coleslaw. It wasn't even enough for one person. Ok, we both like coleslaw, and theirs is also... More

The fried catfish is wonderful! Kids chicken nugget meal was big enough for 2 kids and they ate it up. Nuggets are real chicken pieces. Will definitely go back!

I need to go back and try more things on the menu. Stopped by to kill time and ordered the boat house salad with catfish and I had the cheeseburger with bacon. The cheeseburger was delicious.

This place is small, comfy, and dang good eating, I had a hamburger which was almost more than I could eat! If the 620 is crowded at rush hour, you might want to stop and smell the roses!

I've been going here for years and the food is very consistent. Really good burgers and fried fish. However, they have the best chicken fried steak around.

I am hooked on their catfish, and whenever I go there, I order their catfish. So fresh and crispy and a delight. Always wish that I got more coleslaw though. Outside eating area is fun.

We regularly get the cheeseburgers and the catfish here. The fried catfish is juicy and crisp and always served steaming hot. The fries are the best I've had in Austin!

We went out for a drive and while driving around North Austin on 31 Jul. We drove by it and turned around and went back. I ordered the Hickery Burger and it was awesome. We will visit the Boat House Grill again!
