Wow! The food is delicious here! They have good variety and it is prepared beautifully. Their cream pies are to die for and they offer a very large selection of home-made cookies. I understand that they make their own ice cream but we didn't try it. They also offer Texas wines by the glass.

Just went tonight for our first visit. Food was fantastic. Took home lots of baked goodies. Also tasted phenomenal. However it seemed like since we were not regulars we weren't really important to the servers/ management. We waited more than ten minutes just for our drinks. Being a server myself, I didnt see any excuse for it. The decor and... More

The food is good but the draw for me is that they have Delaware Punch. I can't find it anywhere else in the Hill Country There is a good variety of menu items. Steak, chicken, fish, a variety of sandwiches and pies. Great place for family gatherings. However, it is often crowded and tables are close together.
