A group of eleven of us dined here for lunch. The restaurant is small, but mighty. The menu is varied with choices to fit almost anyone's needs. I ordered the grilled tilapia with grilled vegetables. The tilapia was very good; the grilled vegetables were excellent. My husband ordered the shrimp po'boy with a side of pinto beans. The po'boy was... More

A small restaurant but yet large in what they can serve. the food was excellent and prepared just like Mom used to do. Also it has a bakery (rolls for lunch made there) where you can get homemade bread, rolls, cinnamon rolls, ect. and it also has a garden nursery attached which was very nice. just simply a great place...

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.

We had heard about this fancy nursery so my husband & I drove up from San Antonio for a visit. My husband said that they were very knowledgable about Tx native plants. He is the gardner and bought plants and I found fun things from their gift shop. The place is landscaped beautifully. We had lunch at the restaurant. The... More

This country cafe is truly in the country, about 7 miles from downtown Kerrville on Harper Road (4 miles from I10). The drive is worth it for classic country fare such as chicken fried steak, meatloaf and fried chicken. Sides include mashed potatoes, fried okra, fried onion rings, green beans and sweet potato fries all prepared with a southern touch.... More
