Recently had the pleasure of dining at Vaughan's in Tyler. Wish we had a restraurant like this in Tulsa. The food was great the service was fast. There was over 20 in our group we were all impressed with selection and the amount food you get. We'll be back!!!

The best catfish I've had a chance to eat in years. Hot and fresh brought to your table. The service was excellent. I would recommend the oysters or the boiled shrimp...both very well prepared. The slaw and beans are great,goes with the buttermilk hushpuppies. Go hungry and be prepared to leave full.

We have gone to Vaughan's for our last time. A week or so ago, the fish was"rubbery" and was cooked the second time, this time just a tad better but now like they had prepared it for years and years. Also, the tomato relish that used to be provided free of charge as a table condiment was missing and I was told that this was an "extra cost"
now (it is a menu item)..Something happened to the corn relish that they used to serve and when it also disappeared, I was told that their supplier did not make the corn relisht anymore. Right!!!! I'm sure nobody in the U.S.makes corn relish anymore!!

Pauline's Buffet has much better fried catfish now, I am sorry to say. I think the owner of Vaughan's, in an effort to cut costs, had not clearly thought through just how he is going about it. I hope he retains his previous volume of trade, but seriously doubt it at this point.

We had patronized Vaughan's for eight years, so sad.

My family and I LOVE Vaughan's! The catfish is delicious, the view is amazing, the atmosphere is friendly and what more can anyone ask for? I love their whole fried catfish (which is fried to golden perfection). The setup they have on the table for you is wonderful and just the right size. Literally, when you ask for ALL you can eat catfish, you do get ALL you can eat. We bring our friends and family from out of town and they love it too. It is well worth the price. The best Catfish place in East Texas.

It is supposed to be all you can eat catfish. The waitress brought out 2 filet's at a time per person. After 6 small filet's of fish, she acted as if we didn't need any more. The fish tasted like mud cat. It was awful. The bowl of coleslaw was tiny, the portions were tiny and it was just too expensive..

There is only one other review online for Vaughns and it was posted in 2005. In 2005, I could not rave enough about Vaughn's catfish and seafood. The food was fantastic, the wait staff excellent and the atmosphere just perfect.

A buddy and I went to Vaughn's this week (after an absence of several months). What happened!! The fantastic fried catfish and the view were the only remaining rave qualities to this restaurant.

The hushpuppies were cremated: fried to a hard shell with the inside being a shriveled up string of something white rattling around inside the hard shell. This wasn't just one batch - it was true of three tries for our table and every other table in sight. They have added a jalapeno hushpuppy that may be good - but they. were burned black. French fries awful and slaw room temperature.

Vaughans Catfish is always fried done,and taste so good. The all you can buffett is definetly worth the price. Unlimited catfish and all the trimmings. The only thing that probably needs improving is the tartar sauce, it is not the best. It is located almost out of the city limit. The coleslaw, beans, hush puppies, fries and the trimmings such as green tomatoes, tartar sauce, onions, comes with the buffet.
