Very wonderful atmosphere and food. They really have wonderful hand dipped onion rings that are superb. Caution: The large is piled mountain high!

I've eaten here a few times. I usually get the Fried Shrimp with Fried Catfish plate, which is always great. This week I got the Shrimp Trio, which was also great. The price is comparable to Red Lobster, but the food at Clear Springs is so much better.

This is my husband's and my go-to restaurant in Nacogdoches. Friendly service, casual, and we are sure to see friends there. If you are really hungry, share the mountain of best onion rings ever. We usually have the fried shrimp or fried catfish dinners, but we also like the grilled chicken salad.

Very nice food, good service. We had chicken-fried steak, great baked potato and super great onion rings.

We loved this place! The food was great. I found it a bit crowded and loud but the food and wait staff made up for that. Our sweet waitress was very attentive and professional. Best hushpuppies and seafood I've had in a while!

Foot high and deep fried. Delectable! That being said, I typically do not eat fried food, but I still love this place. They have many other options, my personal favorite being the skinny fish tacos. I also have enjoyed a variety of their large salads, the gumbo, and another favorite crawfish jalapeño chowder. Burgers, steaks, ribs... All yummy. This is... More

I've been going here for years. All the seafood is good. Portions are enormous. But you MUST get a TEXAS SIZE ORDER OF ONION RINGS. Even if you don't like onion rings, the experience will change your life, & your cholesterol. You can't eat these every day, but you have to try them at least once. Try the other appraisers... More

The onion rings are wonderful. Clear Springs is a great restaurant to eat at with great food. I love the fried shrimp, grilled chicken salad, catfish platter, and any seafood dish. You will probably hear a train go by sometime during your dining experience.

Fried shrimp, fried fish, fried chicken. The selection isn't great, and it's a bit expensive at about $12/person. Service isn't quick, even when the place is empty.

While visiting our daughter and son in law, recently we enjoyed lunch here, one weekend. The atmosphere is a combination of a hunting lodge and western bar...depending on the side you are seated. It is very relaxed and welcoming. Staff was friendly and helpful. You might start the meal with one of several appetizers, ranging from fried pickles or a... More
