Everything we ordered was great. The blackened fish and blackened chicken where both seasoned very well. Onion rings are tasty.. lets not forget about the garlic mashed potatoes A+ On my next visit, this will be my first stop. Can't wait!!!

Service was good. We got there right at 2pm so missed the lunch deals. I wouldn't go after lunch again due to price. The shrimp wontons were really good. The étouffée catfish was decent but with bland rice and green beans. Their onion rings are good and even better with the ranch they give you for them. I didn't really... More

We weren't even hungry, but we stopped in on a recent road trip because the place was packed - which is usually a good sign.

Good for large groups.... More

Several of our couple friends that we travel with ate here one night. There is a lot of fried food on the menu. I enjoyed my chicken fried chicken and onion rings though and others enjoyed fried shrimp and fish tacos. Good service too.

I had fried catfish & 3 sides and my wife had shrimp (9 extra LG). She also had a side salad that covered a 10" plate. The food was very good as was the service. We will have to remember this place if we ever get back.

We had wonderful meals here during the Big Nac music festival. I wish they had more festivals in this historic town.

My husband took me out to eat for my birthday. I chose to eat at Clear Springs. I love eating there. I had the shrimp trio and it was delicious.
